Thanks for a good write-up.
I'm losing power when I hit the gas hard - lose all electrical interior and exterior but still can drive - lay off gas and power pops back on after afew minutes.
I believe I overheated the motor recently and got a 'check engine' - then the following week i noticed this problem.
think it could be from the DDM or another component?

The factory keycode is not resetable. The permanant code for your new DDM is printed on the module it's self on the serial tag.

Not willing to remove the door panel, I carefully examined the old (ie Original )DDM and could not find any evidence of the key-code. I even removed the PCB (Printed Circuit Board) from it's case and examined both sides, without success.

You've probably solved the problem by now, but I was going to suggest that it's the Light Control Module (LCM) located under the dash to the right of the brake pedal and just behind the "plug in port" to the computer. It is a module about 4.5 X 2.5 X 7 inches in size. It has 4 connectors on it. Note the model number and be sure the one you use to replace it is compatible. I had the exact same problem and a replacement LCM solved it. Look online and you will find them for a lot less than the $800++ that Ford wants for one. Most sellers provide a link to determine compatibility. Hope this helps.

I am hoping to buy a 2002 TC this week, it has the "doors won't Lock" problem, the seller was quoted $1500 by Ford dealer to fix the problem (Control Module)
Luckily for me the seller is knocking off $1000 from the selling price.
Wish me luck

I have a 2003 Lincoln town Exec. My problem is when it rains or I hit a puddle of water all my dash indicators flicker or stay on including battery light, when that happens my headlights will sometimes cut out and the car will overcharge the battery and will in most cases make battery over heat to where the battery wont hold a charge? The indicators will sometimes flicker or stay on then go off for about 10 sec on dry days but over charge battery ?

I had something similar to that happen; it was corrected by the alternator being changed.

I'm interested in your post.
I'm wondering if this will be a solution to my problem.
I recently just bought a 99 lincoln used
and when I Got home I noticed at night the interior lights were on.
I went and used the key remote to hit the lock button to turn it off,
it turned off, but came back on and then went off and back on again.
I gave up and took the fuse out after testing about 20 of them to see which one it was.
IF I leave the headlights on the timer they will also go on and off with the interior lights. Anyone have this exact problem?
Also I noticed that the lights on the keypad on the drivers door also is consistent with going off and on with the headlights and the interior lights.
Anyone have this exact problem and have the fix?

Sometimes electrical problems will be reset to factory settings when the battery is completely disconnected for overnight. Just remove the + & - cables & reconnect the next morning. It may work and can't hurt. While the cables are free, use a wire cable cleaner on them and the battery posts can be cleaned as well. The tool costs about a dollar.

I am having the same problem with my 2003 T/C. You had said you located a brand new DDM on the internet for $200? Could you direct me to this website please? I'm not having very much luck. thank you! Riggo
