Question about 1997 Lincoln Town Car

1 Answer

Moon roof I just took my uncle's 1997 Lincoln Towncar Cartier to get the oil changed. I pushed the moon roof button and it went up in the "vent" position. But now it won't go back down. It may not have been opened in about 8 years or so. I can't find a fuse for it on the fuse panel diagram. Any ideas? Can I manually crank it back into place before the next rain? Please help.

My 2000 lincoln towncar, 2000, gets soak and wet on the floorboards every time it rains hard. I've been told it has something to do with the moon roof vents. I don't know what to do about it

Clear the drain tubes with compressed air. one on each side of the window at the back. But they can only let so much water out. If the seal on the window is bad, they won't be able to handle all the water, will leak inside. Those seals aren't cheap and are a pain to replace. If you don't use or need it to open. Shut it and silicone it on top. This will stop your problem.

There is a switch mounted on the arm of the brake pedal (under a plastic cover held on with 3 plastic push-pins). There is an electical connection attached to this switch. In my case one of the wires had broken and was not supplying electricity to the switch. By fixing the broken wire it allowed the shifter to properly move and got the brake lights working again.

Moon roof worked fine until i changed the batery now it opens in one inch incriments

Because it has 1 touch operation the control module must know the parameters of the roof. After loss of power you will need to resynch your roof. Move the roof all the forward and hold button for approx. 7 seconds. next push roof in pop up position and hold for approx. 7 seconds this will synch the roof and enable 1 touch operation. Your windows may have to be resynched as well. push window all the way up and hold button for approx. 7 seconds if your vehicle has express up.
