Not normally does a body control module go bad, but it can happen. Even when your owners manual might tell you that a certain fuse goes to a certain switch or etc. it's always best to get a test light and check both sides of every fuse in the fuse blocks. Sometimes they will complete the circuit through another fuse. But test both sides of every fuse with a text light. This is cheap and easy insurance. And it doesn't take long at all. Make sure you do a fuse check with the key in every possible position. Some fuse will only test in key on, key start, acc, and etc. hope this helps. If you don't have a test light. They are very inexpensive at pretty much anywhere that sells fuses.

You can spray some lube down both sides of the tract. This will help it from sticking. Most likely though the regulator is wearing out. Watch the window as it is going up. If it tilts a little bit, it is the regulator.

Check the 2A SWITCH FUSE in the steering column, and the 5A RDO/PH FUSE and 10A RDO FUSE in the rear fuse box.

Hello Rebecca Jones,

The lift & tilt motors seem to be available... but the forward back seems RATHER RARE...

You MIGHT WANT TO JUMP ON THE $85 one below!!

For parts you can check first on RockAuto.com (I'll put a link at the bottom)... NEVER-MIND ... I checked & got nothing!

Surprisingly... you can also find a really decent selection and competitive prices on AMAZON (I tried to demonstrate)...
Not there either...!!

But first find your part (pix) below... on the web... then look under your seat to see what you recognize... and check your local auto dismantlers (salvage yard).

Then check out eBay...
If you move quickly... and verify it is good or NOT GOOD
in the allotted time... eBay will protect your purchase...
Found one (see below... $85 free shipping.. good price:
(offer $60)).

If you are like I am... I buy that part... can't wait to start...

but in the MEAN-TIME I looked up my LINCOLN and found a TECHNICAL SERVICE BULLETIN on MY SPECIFIC SEAT issue at BBB Industries (free tech bulletins & wiring diagrams... registration required)

Hope this helps!!

Vin K or Vin 1 ?
Removal Procedure
The accessory drive belt drives all engine mounted accessories. All driven accessories are rigidly mounted to the engine. Drive belt tension is maintained by a spring loaded belt tensioner. A belt squeak when the engine is started or stopped is normal and has no effect on belt durability. The drive belt tensioner can control belt tension over a broad range of belt lengths; however, there are limits to the tensioner's ability to compensate. Using the tensioner outside of its operating range can result in poor tension control and/or damage to the tensioner.
Important: Ensure that the wood block extends past the width of the oil pan in order to avoid damage.
  1. Use a jack with a block of wood on the jack under the oil pan in order to support the engine.
  2. Remove the engine mount to engine mount bracket nuts.
  3. Remove the engine mount bracket front upper and lower nuts.

Remove the engine mount bracket front upper and lower studs and spacer.
Lower the engine as necessary and rotate the tensioner to remove the drive belt.
Remove the drive belt.
Don't need to remove power steering pump if done right !

Yes. Thus is a short. Check the switch wiring and bulbs. Does the car have a trailer hitch with trailer wiring. Those are a common source of shorts.

Okay Beverly Anderson...

Not terribly SPECIFIC... there is a whole lot of fuel line.. but the global... non-specific answer is...

To me "fuel line from the motor" means the RETURN LINE...
Does not matter... the answer remains the same.

On domestic cars (yours: I think... today)...
The fuel line runs from the bottom of your fuel tank (guessing here) all the way thru a filter, pump... and steel lines + neoprene hoses (typically 5/16")... arriving above your engine: 3.8L yes/no Turbo... fuel injected engine... (thru pressure regulator, see below) into your "fuel rail".

Then... through your PULSING INJECTORS ... for combustion

Again... "TYPICALLY" meaning there is usually a return fuel line BACK to your fuel tank... and a third VAPOR LINE is attached "TYPICALLY" high on the filler neck removing the EVER-PRESENT fuel vapors from the fuel tank.

So to your question HOW?

Get the right sized tubing...
get appropriate FACTORY hose clamps

GENTLY CUT AWAY the hardened rubber ...
Fit the new neoprene hose... softly tighten those hose clamps
(snug: sufficient only to stop leakage (overtightening is worse than NOT tightening)).

If you ever plan on putting this car in a concourse... PURCHASE the EXACT same CHEESY clamps that came from the factory...

**CONCOURSE awards no points for being SMART/SAFE...

Only ORIGINALITY counts!!

So THEY say!!

Hope this helps... ELSE comment me back... (I'll be around).
