#1096 of 1117 Driver seat recliner not working.
Jan 21, 2013 (1:51 pm)
After horrible service at a Lincoln dealer,I've decided to tackle this myself. The recliner (back) part of my driver seat does not work.When I push the button I hear something but it doesn't move.The bottom does move,no issue with that part.Anybody have any ideas?2007 LINCOLN TOWN CAR SIG.LIMITED,34600 MILES.Thanks.

Sometimes the switch contact points become corrorded & working the switch several times scrapes the corrosion away. Hopefully!

Hi. Thanks. I had a thought about the switch and tried to jiggle it,move it and otherwise just see if I could get it to do something.Didn't work.I brought it to the dealer and 371 dollars later it's the seat actuator.It's sitting at that dealer as I write this waiting for the part to come in to fix it. This is the one thing I don't think I've ever had happen to any of my Lincolns.

Have 2004 Ultimate Towncar. Left low beam headlight won't come on. Have checked fuse and changed bulb. High beam works. Husband thinks ballist might need replaced. Expensive fix. Anyone have advice? Will appreciate any help.

If you are sure that the connections are clean and tight, then more than likely it is the ballast.

I was just looking on ebay for headlights and other stuff for my 07 t/c.You can buy a complete headlight set for 250 bucks.Also,any issues I ever had with headlights either involved the bulb or the actual switch in the car.However, I'm no mechanic,just a guy who's owned lots of Lincoln Town Car's.What is and where is the ballast located?

I would imagine that those $250 headlamps have the halogen bulbs and not the H.I.D. headlamps which were optional and are much more expensive to replace. If your car has ballasts for the headlights, then you would have H.I.D headlamps. The Lincoln option code for these is 51H
