#200 of 245 Headlights not staying on
Jan 08, 2012 (1:11 pm)
I want to thank beachbob remarks. He explained rather than pay $511 for a LCM light control module quoted from my dealer 12/15/11. Replace the relay. He was correct you will have to know someone who can unsolder the old relay and replace with new relay. The relay on my 2004 grand marquis is back ordered from -Mouser in mansfield,tx. part # 551-EQI-11111S. I found a comparable one from Well Gain electronics on the internet. The part # MR301-12HSL . The relay was under $10 plus shipping all said and done for under $20. beachbob is correct. The LCM is to the right of the steering column with 3 harness jacks. The size is about 4"wide x 7"long. After you take off 2 different under dash covers it is mounted flat on a slidemount clip to a metal housing. It's fairly easy to remove. To dismount out of open metal housing I pushed the LCM box upwards till removed from metal housing. Once you have the LCM removed you will need a star screwdriver for 2 screws and also pressing inward on the side tabs. As beachbob mentioned
you will see yellowish/brown discoloration around the relay indicating which relay is the one to replace. I want to say thank you to beachbob for being a stand up guy in helping others in need. I didn't have the $511 for the LCM nor money to "code" the new LCM nor probaly $2oo more for the mechanic all in all arounr $800-900 dollars. I also want to thank Edmunds for a forum like this one.

Glad you were able to solve your problem much more cheaply than anticipated!
And we also thank beach_bob for sharing his solution. You never know what solutions might turn out to be a life (and wallet) saver for other owners.

Many Thanx to Everyone That offered this Info about the relays. I just repaired the LCM on My Wife's 2005 Gran Marquis with about 70,000 miles on it. It has the adjustable gas pedal and had to be unplugged before it would come out around the gas pedal motor. The soldering was fairly easy, The hardest part for Me was unplugging that single connector on top. after I figured out how to get it off the rest was a piece of cake! The Dealers DID NOT get My $$$.

Did you try taking off your driver door panel and disconnecting the keyless entry touchpad? The buttons corrode and cause the domelight to come on whenever.

I am in the process of removing the LCM from an 05 Crown Vic.
I have the box hanging down but am having trouble getting the largest of the 3 harness connectors removed. Any suggestions? Also, when I disconnected the first two harnesses, the lights came on and would not turn off until I replaced the harnesses.

Thanks to you and beachbob. I have the box hanging down but am having difficulty getting the largest of the 3 harness connectors out. Any suggestions? Also, is the part number on the relay?

Does the Lighting Control Module (LCM) effect the a/c fan operation and/or is it tied to the same relay as the LCM? I have an '03 Crown Victoria and the the dome light, vanity mirror lights & overhead display don't work. The radio works but the buttons do night light up for it and the temp control buttons do not light up either nor do the ac, defrost, etc. selection buttons which means no heat or ac right now (or defrost). This is the second time this has happened. First time mechanic had it 5 days and couldn't figure it out (checked all fuses and they appeared ok). A random guy from church looked at it next and got all working other than overhead display but didn't tell me what he did. Cigerette lighter works. UGH! Any help is greatly appreciated!
