This seems to be a problem with lots of 99's. I took my 99 Town Car in to dealer for fix. They cleaned and repaired the right cowl screen, sealed cowl and air intake. However, after 2 rains this past week, there was still a leak (much smaller than before)into right front passenger carpet; there appears to be no leak as before in right rear passenger carpet. I plan to take it back in for redo tomorrow.
#477 of 1117 '92 Town Car Problems
Oct 03, 2006 (12:07 pm)
I've only posted on here a couple times, but I figured someone on here could help me out!
I have a '92 Lincoln Town Car. I've had the car for 3 years and kept up the maintenance. All the sudden, everything starts going wrong at once.
Here are the problems:
1. My windows quit rolling up and down. I have the replacement parts, but I can't get the door panel off. I have to get someone else to do that.
2. I think I have an electrical problem. My windshield wipers do not work unless I put them on the fastest setting. Then they only run once and I have to turn them off and put them back on the fastest setting for it to run again. My headlight is out, but my brights work just fine.
3. I have to have my antenna replaced, it broke and the pulley doesn't work anymore.
4. There are several flushes, etc I need to get done (About $600 worth.) I plan on getting those done. There is a rattling in the engine when I accelerate at times.
Does any of this sound familiar? Do I have a full blown electrical problem? How much will it cost to get all of this repaired?

Before taking door panels off it appears that when you fix the other electrical challenges the windows may work as well. It is very rare all four windows stop at the same time. Usually it is the driver window that goes.

I think you need to prioritize your problems. First off, if the engine is making rattling noises get that checked out. What if you need a new engine? Are you going to get one? The other items are secondary. $600 for flushes? Get another mechanic. My two rear windows don't work. I'm glad they don't as I left the keys inside the locked car the other day. Just pulled down the glass and I was in. They stay up on their own. Saved me time and money for a locksmith. My windshield wiper doesn't run on all speeds and sometimes turns off when I use the signal. I'm assuming that's the switch itself that needs replacing. You say one headlight is out. The low beam could be out and the high beam ok. Two different filaments involved. Check the wiring with your good headlight to make sure. But get that engine checked out first. If it is a major repair/replace you might not want to keep the car.
#480 of 1117 Air Bag light on 99 Towncar
Oct 05, 2006 (11:28 am)
I have an air bag light on - code 32.
Says driver side - circuit open.
Is this something for the dealer to address?
Or is there a wire loose under the seat somewhere.

What did the dealer charge and is it fixed yet?

My 2k was doing the same thing a couple of weeks ago. It was a idle sensor. Either IAC or IEC was the reference used by the tech. It is annoying when it cold and you are trying to make a turn and the engine dies...

I believe the problem is something called an Idle Control Valve. Top rear of engine. It is connected by two 3/8 bolts and one wire. It is connected to a larger exhaust breather type hose that projects into the top of the engine manifold. You will find this device sticking up dead center at the back of the engine. It is silver in color and looks like two pie pans stuck together about 2 1/4 in in diameter. Good Luck its and easy fix.

I took it to a mechanic two two days ago but they said nothing wrong as it didn't have "Check the Engine" light. They just cleaned the battery area and told me to wait and see. Well, itís been fine so far but the problem happens only once a two week. I will keep both replies for next time. (I hope it won't happyen but...)
Thank you so much for your input!!!!
