I know this is an old blog but some people may still find it helpful. There are 4 wires in the roof window switch hooked up to 2 smaller harnesses that have 2 wires each.

Remove the switch and use only the metal contacts in the harnesses. One should use a light tester to confirm which one is the ground and live. this is how it turned out for my car.

One harness has a light blue wire with a black stripe, and a black wire. the blue one is live, the black one is ground.

The other harness has a red wire and a darker blue wire (silly ford) these are the motor connect and return wires.

You must hook up thhooked to (example, if the live wire was connected to blue motor wire and the ground wire was connected to red motor wire and it opened it, that would mean you would want to put the live wire to the red motor wire and the ground wire to the blue motor wire)

When doing these wire connections, it is advised that you have the ignition turned off. Once you make all the connections properly, you can turn on the ignition and if done correctly, the roof window will move. Once it is closed, remove the wires frome the harnesses and LEAVE THE ROOF WINDOW ALONE UNTIL YOU HAVE A NEW SWITCH.
e power (Live, light blue) wire to a motor wire. You must then run another wire from the other motor wire. To complete this circuit there is only one place that this last wire can go and it is to the ground. once this is connected the roof should either open more or close.

To reverse the operation of the roof, simply reverse the position of the live and ground wires in respect to which motor wires they are

If you here the window motors running then take off the inner door panel and make sure the window gear is engaged into the motor. If so and the track moves up and down then the window came out of the track holders and has to be glued back in it.

hi, oil leaking down into the spark plugs causing problems, in the 4.6 the plugs go way down from the top and can get full of oil, pull one boot plug up and out inspect one at a time to see how bad the oil leak is. it needs gaskets but should be okay to go back and forth once, needs valve cover gaskets now..jm

it is a switch that allows you to only start a car in park or neutral

I've never heard of "burping" the coolant system, nor have I ever owned a Lincoln, but based on your description of the problem alone, I would first drain the system, flush it with a good radiator flush (ask the guys at a reputable auto parts store) and refill it - checking all hoses first, of course. While you're at it you might want to check out the water pump and thermostat. The other thing is that the sound you describe as water rush may not be that at all - although i have no suggestions as to what it is. Good luck. . .

The multi funtion switch problly has to be replaced,

1993 Lincoln... | Answered on Dec 12, 2016

Doubtful. They didn't make them back then. But they probably won't fit and 1993 or a 1093 either. The manufacturers change the body style too frequently to be able to be confident. One easy way to find out is to call a local salvage yard (junkyard). They are extremely knowledgeable about interchangeability of parts across model years.

Under dash Could also be brake switch it's on your brake pedal

1993 Lincoln... | Answered on Oct 16, 2015

It has a safety system that keeps it locked in Park unless your foot is on the brake. If the brake lever switch is broke or out of place it will not shift. Someone could have bent the parts when it did not unlock. Check rear brakelights to see if you get it to light when a foot is on brakepedal.

flyersqod, I believe that you have an OBD II code reader which is what is being sold to the public. OBD II starts with vehicles that were manufactured in 1996 and later and it mandated that all vehicles have a universal plug-in adapter to accommodate the scanners. Pre-1996 vehicles had a different plug-in for their respective makes. GM, Ford and Chrysler as well as all the foreign models all had different plug-ins. This is the case with your 1993 Town Car. The plug-in for your vehicle is located in the engine compartment and has two plugs on it. This cannot be accessed by an OBD II reader. If you want your vehicle scanned you will have to take it somewhere that has an OBD I scanner. Good luck with this.
