#209 of 261 98 tc electrical gremlin
Dec 03, 2010 (1:08 pm)
Two months ago I was idling for an hour in traffic and air suspension light came on then trac light then abs light, then entire cluster started blinking on and off, I turned off ac off and things went back to normal. Parked for 30 min and needed battery jump.
Flash forward a week ago went to start and nothing but clicking. Replaced Battery.
Checked alternator output 14.1 v.
2 days ago driving interstate and air, trac, abs light come on one at a time, cluster goes dark and engine quits. Stop car, starts up like no problem and gets home.
Today's start was almost normal but before I could release the starter the cluster went dark. There it sits. I'm not sure where to start.
One other event a month ago in a heavy rain the wipers would barely move, they were in super slow mo, but set on fast.

Can you tell me what is required to remove the dash board upper cover on a 95 Towncar?
Jan 02, 2011 (10:14 pm)
I have a 2005 LTC and my dash lights will only work if the switch is in the off position. If I turn it to auto or to the on position I have no dash lights. I checked the dimmer switch and it seems to be working. The lights on the overhead console will dim as well as the lights on the door switches. Can someone please tell me what is going on?

Check the child lockout switch on the driver's door window control panel. If the switch is bad, it will cut off power to the rear windows as if you had set it on lock. (Driver's door usually gets a lot of water related problems - it's opened the most in all kinds of weather)

The 95 only has a starter interrupt and will not let it crank. Sounds like you have a Crankshaft Position Sensor problem. I have fixed many by just taking the connector apart and solder the crimps and tinning the ends. You can prove it usually by unplugging then plugging it back in. It's such a low signal it doesn't take much resistance to lose it.

I have a 95 Town Car with the same problem and haven't been able to find it. Did you ever come up with anything? Just put a LCM in it and still the same thing.

Well, when i first posted that, it was a year ago. i finally found the problem last July by tapping around under the hood while it wasn't starting. here's what I found: under the hood there are two fuse boxes. They also contain a few "relay" switch type things. One of them was for the ignition system. When I tapped it, immediately the car started fine. The switches were $11.00 apiece. I also found that I needed one for the horn which worked intermittently. I now keep a few of them in the glovebox in case I ever need one on the road. The relays are almost square black plastic with a plug-in-end. ***side note:*** A month ago car wouldn't start and had to have it towed. Crank position sensor. We are gonna rebuild this car one part at a time. Thanks for your reply!

If you also have a door open light on the dash it is most likely a sticking door switch. Happens quite often in Fords. You can try spraying WD-40 into the latch on each door and opening a closing them a few times, close them hard so it will unstick. It is probably the drivers side that is stuck. If that doesnt work, then the door panel needs to be removed to get to the switch to lube it.
