#732 of 1123 Idle problem with 2001 towncar
Feb 12, 2008 (9:15 am)
Idle problem --- with my 2001 lincoln town car. Once the engine reachs normal temperature, the RPMs drop to 570 RPM when shifted to drive or reverse with or without the air conditioning running. This causes the engine to idle rough and slightly shake. In Park it runs very smoothly.
In Park the Rpm is 800 with or without the air conditioning on. I know there is a circuit that feeds to the PCM that maintains the RPM close to the 800 level for all the above conditions.
Any and all suggestions would be appreciated along with any schematics, parts locations, and information related to this circuit.

Your 1996 TC is fine The noise you hear is the air pump that cycles on when you start the car to level out the rear air shocks. The pump remains active for up to approx 1 hr after the ignition is turned off to level the car.
#735 of 1123 1993 TC keyless entry codes unknown
Feb 22, 2008 (7:02 am)
Is there any way I can retrieve the factory codes for my keypad?
I checked for the codes on the trunk and door jamb and the pass side computer box.
The previous owner must have removed all the hidden tags. Any suggestions ?

tyvm, i was worried that maybe it was going out, or that it might even be the fuel pump. im also hearing a high pitched humm, and im think9ing it might be the belts cuz it usually only does it when you step on the accelerator, could you maybe confirm this

try to contact your local dealer, they should be able to give you a default code or something so that you may reset it

well the hum is more inconsistant than when i step on the gas, sometimes it just hums in idle it seems louder when i step on the gas though. and sometimes it doesnt do it at all, but i just checked the belt and it looks fairly new, not worn or anything, maybe the pulls need to be greased, the car did sit for about 8 months waiting for someone to buy it. If anyone has any input that would be great
#739 of 1123 overdrive gone
Feb 23, 2008 (1:50 am)
I posted a message a couple of months ago..anyone have any ideas on the below? Thanks for any assistance!!
I have a 1990 Town Car and the overdrive is completely gone. When it tries to shift into overdrive its like you shifted into neutral by mistake. I am getting ready to take it into a trans shop and wanted some input. Rebuild? Easy fix? Any ideas?

I had A similar problem some time ago. I was afraid the transmission was shot. The local transmission repair shop said the problem was A sensor that needed to be replaced. The cost was about $250.00. They did the work and I have not had any recurring problems so far. You need to seek out A reputible business. The dealers are outrageous in their pricing. Good Luck
#741 of 1123 Wet Floor mats
Feb 25, 2008 (7:25 am)
i have a 2000 Lincoln Towncar and recently after a rain storm, we noticed the passenger side floor mats (front and rear) were soaking wet. I took it to the dealer and he said something about the drain near the windshield wiper being stopped up with leaves and straw/. He cleaned it out , but it is still doing the same thing after even just a shower. Any suggestions? Are there any filters or something that may be clogged. It is not coming in around the windows or doors and appears to be coming from underneath...
