It may be best to take this to the Lincoln dealer. However, if you attempt any checks or repairs on the Air Bag System, first, disconnect the battery and do nothing to the system for at least a minute. The system has its own backup power supply and tampering with the system will make the air bags inflate. The system has a separate computer system, the air bag diagnostic monitor, which is located on the passenger side of the car. So addition to conducting an analysis of the onboard diagnostic module, the air bag monitor has to be checked. Take a look at the crash sensors which are at the front of the vehicle for anything that looks unusual. If you have to do anything more than securing a simple connection, take the car to the dealer. Air bag replacements are expensive.

Speaking from experience, it cost me $3000 to get my '92 TC Air Bag lite to stay off! They replaced the up/down load level sensors, the computer, the air bags, the compressor and everything else that they could think of. As it turned out, it was a wire chaffing against the air conditioner compressor mount, which was causing a FALSE air bag error warning light! Good Luck!

You have hit on one of the repair practices that plague the auto owner. When a repair shop goes through the process of "Trial & Error" they are admitting they don't know how to fix it. So, why should they be rewarded for their stumbling through the problem by our paying for their experimentation? Enough is enough.

#336 of 1123 Power Window Question [ben02910]

After removing the door panel, loosen the nuts on the door which hold the power window assembly. This should loosen the window. You should be able to place the window back in the window track. Remove the power window switch from the door panel and connect it to the connector to verify the the window goes up and down.
#337 of 1123 95 T/C Sometimes Won't Start When Hot
Apr 13, 2006 (2:03 pm)
I have a '95 T/C with approx. 95K miles that sometimes, after being driven enough to get the engine compartment hot, will not restart after being shut off.
It does not always happen, but it has happened three times recently, enough to make me lose confidence in the car. I would really like to "nail" this issue at minimal expense.
When it happens, I open the hood to let the engine compartment cool, and then the engine will start again.
When it is in this "will not start" mood, then engine will crank per normal, just does not fire. After I open the hood and wait approx. 5 to 10 minutes, the engine will fire up right away.
I read earlier messages about tightening the ground at the battery, I've done that. No change.
If this is a ignition module issue, could someone please post an accurate description of the location of the module?
Thanks very much,

Once after towing a boat up to the lake on a hot day, our 82 Town Car would not start after launching the boat. I placed some ice cubes in a little baggie and set it on the ignition module and the engine started right away. Re: location of your module on your 95, I'm not sure.

This car has a Powertrain Control Module (PCM) which is located on the driver's side fire wall. It does not have an ignition module like on the older cars. I suspect though that your problem is not the PCM. It may be that the Mass Air Flow (MAF) Sensor needs to be cleaned or replaced. Remove the Mass Air Flow Sensor and clean it. This is the component with the security screws located near the air filter. This is a delicate item. I usually use a cotton swab and some alcohol or electrical parts cleaner to clean the two small wires that are inside this item. If it is not functioning properly, it will cause the engine to mis fire, idle roughly, or may prevent the engine from starting. Has your service engine light been coming on?

Gary: Had this problem, again with a '95 town car. Replacing the fuel pump didn't work. What DID work was replacing the fuel injector switch(es). These cost $15 at a dealer and they instructed my husband how to install them which was a 5-10 minutes job. Haven't had that problem since. I still seem to have excessive 'chiming' when starting and turning off the car, but can live with this. Shoemaker
