Is the manual headlight switch turned too far in the direction that turns on the interior lights?
#220 of 274 Lincoln Town Car Battery Light
Aug 12, 2011 (2:06 pm)
I have a 1998 Lincoln Town Car. I bought it in 2005 with 51,000 miles on it.
The battery light would come on for a few minutes and then go off for a few minutes. It keeps coming back on and off everytime I use the car. It doesn't matter if the car is moving or standing still.
I replaced the belt. I cleaned the terminals. I cleaned and reconnected the short ground strap from the battery to the fender. Nothing had an effect.
The alternator is putting out about 14 volts everytime I check it.
Every place I took it to said I need to replace the alternator because the light goes off and on. ---B.S.
This has been happening for 6 years and I finally had to replace the battery last week, at 89,000 miles (40,000 miles later)
The light still goes off and on. The new battery stays charged.
Can anyone tell how to fix this?

I have the same problem on my 1999 Town car so as of now no one knows what could be wrong. The mecanic changed the altenator, cleaned terminals, checked connections & the battery light still goes on and off but is charging at 13.5 volts. They say it might be the computer module which would be costly. It is quite annoying because when that light goes on it should indicate a altenator battery malfunction.steve385

I have a 2007 Lincoln Towncar Signature with an electrical problem. I have lost power to the doors, the keyless entry and the trunk. I have checked all the appropiate ( and indeed ALL the fuses ) and have swapped the relays.
I'm thinking I have a disconnect in the harness...
Any suggestions ?

The tail lights coming on when you brake or when you put on the tuirn signals . is the one filiment in the tail light bulb and that is controled thrpugh sa seperate circuit. There are two the second filiment is for the parking lights and the side markers not coming on tells me you have a problem in the light switch. I would start there. You didn't mention whether the front parking lights come on. These are aside from the side markers? If you had a short the fuse should blow. try turning the switch off and on several times , try jiggling the switch. if the dimmer is in the switch rotate it several times, Then check your out put from the switch when you turn the switch on!
Its a start.

I bought Lincoln Town Car 2001 Signature Edition and its in perfect condition. Except in order to start engine i need to pull Multifunction Switch (High Beam Lights and they are on same switch as turn signal ) towards my self. So i get in the car turn the key and power (lights, radio, etc..) comes on and if turn key to start cranking engine it shuts off.The only way to start the engine is to pull and hold multifunction and it will start without any problem and run like a beauty . I did also notice that while i have my Windshield Vipers on key will be warm nearly hot when i get to destination and turn car off.Will this cause any more problems? and what could it be safety hazard?Any ideas? and finally does anybody else have the same problem? PLEASE HELP
P.S. When i called $$$dealership$$$ they never had anything like it.They told me that is a cool security feature .....

I have an 99 TownCar, and had the same problems 4 months ago.. The fix was a rely in the fuse box under the hood. I had an guy check everything out and cost me a ton in man hours.. but once he found it, it was a $40.00 part. Don't waste your time looking in the back lights or even your wiring...
Good Luck, hope this helps.
