A thermostat that's not closing all the way can cause this, but so can very cold weather. An experienced technician can diagnose a stuck-open thermostat by watching the coolant flow as the engine warms up, but given the age of your Lincoln, simply replacing the thermostat and
the engine coolant would be good preventive maintenance.
It's also possible the engine-coolant temperature sensor is getting "drifty" and sencing skewed readings. This can be diagnosed by comparing scan-tool readings with actual temperature readings. Hope this comment helps.
#549 of 1123 95 lincoln town car turn signal problem
Feb 10, 2007 (3:01 am)
I have a 95 lincoln town car, I have no turn signal or brake lights and no hazards lights. Could this be the flasher gone bad. Where is the flasher located, I looked in the fuse panel not there. Could it be mounted on the steering column next to the switch.

There is a fuse (relay) panel under the hood, someplace. I assume you were refering to the under dash location.

This model may not have a seperate flasher unit under the dashboard. I know that on the 96 model when I had this same problem I had to have the turn signal unit on the steering wheel replaced. You might me able to get one at
E-Bay. They are not difficult to replace.

In adddition to the other comments, have the blend door on the car checked. If the blend door is locked in the cold air positon you will not get heat. These doors have a sense of their own. When it is winter they stick in the cold position. When it is summer they stick in the heat position.

Only hot air blows from my A/C, regardless of setting, no cool or cold air.
Even pushing the Vent button, I only get a rush of hot air.

I would take it to a shop you trust, and let them diagnose both problems.

Have cold air again...! Grinning...!
Out of desperation, of fear, facing an expensive repair bill, I did the following:
Opened all doors to vent the hot air, put one finger on the VENT button simultaneously pressing the AUTOMATIC button. Started de A/C, a few second later pushed the OFF button. Did this several times.
The last time, the A/C did not start but a lot of blue numbers showed rapidly in the display, changing from 25 to 125 and then only some dots blinked.
Then I heard a loud noise under the car floor and a sublime rush of cold air came through the vents...
I hope this will help some one with the problem in the future.May save them some bucks from an unneeded repair.

The Lincoln Gods have shown you favor. Or maybe it was an exorcism.
