#71 of 1123 Lincoln Climnate Control problem 1998
Apr 22, 2005 (2:03 pm)
Update to my earlier posts-Reviewed 1040, 1045, 1049, & 1052. Took the T/C to a dealer-diagnostics came up #24 on the climate control. Replaced the blend door motor and the blend door. Same problem- turn on A/C after a few seconds blows max hot air. Blend door just keeps going to max. checked diagnostics #24 again replaced the motor and climate control. Same problem- they called FORD- must be a ground. Tried 2 days of trouble shooting. No luck- tried the disconnecting everything. Next they said replace the entire wiring harness. I said stop there. Currently have the blend door unplugged and have A/C for the summer-Have to reconnect for heat in the winter. Ford tech support told dealer if you figure out the problem call them back and tell them what the problem was. Don't have anymore $$ for the wiring harness repair and don't know if that would fix it. Tired of shooting in the dark. Any suggestions?????????????? sodakverizon.net

1.EEC relay(on drivers side under hood in plastic box. Switch with ac/relay or horn relay to see if it helps.
2.Corroded battery terminals and wires.
3. Possible anti-thief replay that affects starter sole. switch
#73 of 1123 tc94's "No Start"
Apr 25, 2005 (9:15 am)
tc94 says that "guess"'s no start condition is not due to the weather - "no way" is what I think he said. He also says he is going through the "same thing" as "guess" is with his own car.
The only thing similar between "guess"'s problem and tc94's problem is that they miss appointments because their car won't go. Otherwise, tc94 is NOT going through the same thing as guess.
I still believe there is a strong chance that guess has a weather, moisture or other ignition conductivity problem.
tc94 is likely correct the HIS problem is not weather related.

#75 of 1123 wiper blades
Apr 30, 2005 (5:21 pm)
this may seem like a simple problem, but how the hell do you change the wiper blades on a 97 TC. there is not enough clearance to lift the wiper blades, they hit the hood. I'm sure it is something easy but i cant figure it out. thanx in advance

It's a bitch, all right, and I wish I could tell you how, but I'd have to work on it for an hour myself each time I try to do it. For the love of Mike, I wish the engineers would simplify this process for owner service.

They are easier to work on when out of their bull pen.
Wet the windshield
Turn on ignition key
Turn on wiper switch and when the blades are just out of their resting place, stop them by turning off the ignition switch.

that helps - then it only takes about half an hour to figure it out.
#79 of 1123 Headlights are dull & have condensation on the inside
May 01, 2005 (4:29 pm)
The headlights on my 99 TC are very dull and have condensation on the inside. I have tried drying them out, but with time the moisture comes back. This is getting to be an issue as the lights are no longer as bright at night, and they no longer have the same brilliant look. Any ideas?

Drill some small holes in the bottom of the plastic asserbly to ventilate & drain them. It should help. Your only other alternative is to replace them.
