There is no external turn signal flasher on a 2001 Town Car. The flasher unit is an internal part of the Lighting Control Module (LCM) and can not be serviced seperately. The LCM is located under the dash to the right of the steering column. It may also be referred to as the MECM (Mutli-Function Electroninc Control Module).

1st when the airbag light is on the system is disabled, so if u have an accident they will not work, as to the common cause read below.
When the airbag light is on it means a fault has occurred in the system and the airbag diagnostic monitor has disabled the system, the most common problem that turns the light on is a break in the connection to the steering wheel mounted airbag, this is due to a rotating ribbon contact that breaks under the steering wheel that connects the airbag to the wiring harness and the diagnostic monitor, the part is called th clock spring contact, a coiled up ribbon electrical contact that turns with the wheel

It may be the windshield wiper module instead of being the motor, since you have had that replaced 3x already. There should be no fuse issue.

2001 Lincoln town car is squeaking in the front

2001 Lincoln town car is squeaking in the front suspension, and when I go over bumps. Is it shocks? Or is it CV joints? Or does it need to be oiled and lobed?

Posted by on

Answer

It could be the the struts as I believe you have struts not shocks on your vehicle. I would start with a good lube job as well as check all your front suspention bushings. If all is good there check to make sure your struts are good. They don't need to be totally repalced as you buy an insert to replace them. Look around underneath as someone pushes the car up and down to try to isolate the location of the noise. I hope this helps and good luck.
