#88 of 1117 Remote Start/Burglar Alarm Problem
May 27, 2005 (9:13 pm)
I had a Prestige Remote Engine Starter installed on my 2003 Lincoln Town Car. Whenever I use the remote control to lock the car, the burglar alarm goes off in 5 to 20 minutes. I have already taken it back to the original installer, as well as to a local Chicago-area tech several times, and it keeps happening. Anyone else have this experience, or more importantly, know how to fix it? Thank you!

i own a 97 towncar signature, and it has the landou roof or carriage top, or whatever you call it. anyways. above the windshield there is a strip of the carriage top that always works itself out, and when i'm on the highway air gets up under the carriage top and makes some noise, if i stop the car and push that weather strip above the windshield back in, then the noise stops. i guess i want some easy way to make sure that strip stays in and stops working itself out, if any of you have a carriage top and know what i'm talking about any input would be appreciated. thanks in advance!
#90 of 1117 Automatic Climate Control

I have a 1991 TC. There seems to be a problem with the ACC. It is stuck on 85 degrees all of the time. I changed the whole ACC system with a part from the local pull and save but still have the same problem. I had the system charged today for the AC but the problem still lies. Any ideas? ">

I have a 1990 Towncar, and the Message Center above & right of the steering wheel is showing the outside temperature to be -15 when it's about 75 degrees out.

It may be as simple as disconnecting the battery for a few minutes and re-attaching it. That will reset some of the computer junk.

If the "reboot" beernut suggested doesn't work, your sensor behind the grille may be broken, or the wire connecting it to the cpu may be broken or unplugged.

Interesting question which I will answer with another question.... If you have to ask how to connect the recharge kit, are you qualified to be working on A/C? Your '84, if its original, is loaded with stuff that's really bad for the environment, according to Al Gore and shouldn't be messed with by "unqualified" people. Besides, Freon is highly expensive and if it leaked out once, it will do it again.
I would expect a 21 year old car to be leaking refrig. from everywhere there is rubber. I wouldn't fool around with it. I took my '88 to a couple of A/C places and to one dealer to see about fixing all the leaks. All of them recommended that I replace the ENTIRE SYSTEM - for less money than replacing the rubber and refilling with rare and expensive R22 . The dealer ended up being the least expensive and with the best warranty. It was around a grand and it came charged with the new, safe juice - whatever its called - I can't remember, and has been blowing cold ever since.

safe-juice = R-134, Algore approved, refrigerant, doubt he'd know it if he drank it straight from the blender, beernut.

The compressor was replaced late 90s and system converted to R-134.
