Never done a crown vic but it is all the same. You will have to search out the screws holding on the individual dash panels. Some are underneath, some are in the ash tray and there are usually concealment tabs that cover up the screws that hold the top on. It is a matter of experimenting the first time unless you can get a diagram from somewhere.

Access to the tail light cluster should be through panels in the rear corners of the vehicle. Remove the panel and you can remove the tail light cluster to replace the bulbs. This is the position on most sedans, unless, like on pick-ups, the tail light lenses have screws which allow the lenses to be removed to change the bulbs.

There are bulbs in the instrument cluster and they are probably bad. You will have to take the instrument cluster out of the dash and take each bulb out individually to see which one is bad then replace it/them and reinstall the instrument cluster back in the dash. It sounds a lot harder than it really is.

'94 Ford Crown Vic Headlights

They are changed from within the engine compartment... at the rear of the headlight bazels... if it's the side on the battery you may have to remove it.... also don't touch the bulbs with your fingers as that shortens the life of them.

Odometer light out

This is fairly simple but is in a tight spot. You need to take the panel that has the rear defrost and truck button on it. Then you need to get an 8 mm and take out the casing that surrounds the insturment cluster (usually it is black), I believe you need to put the gear shift to the lowest gear to get enough room to pull the casing out. Then get a star tool to unscrew the cluster and pull it out toward you and then remove then remove the harnesses that plug into the back, be careful not to break the cable that is connected to the back of the cluster. Once all is complete on the back of the cluster there are black clips that have a socket on the inside which holds the bulbs. To pull these out you need twist these then they will release. At this point you can swap the bulbs with another bulb that you really dont need like the seatbelt light or just do the best thing and replace the bulb. Its been a while since I changed a bulb, so if I missed anything post it to inform others that may read.
