#8 of 47 Factory Premium Stereo

The factory radio/cassette w/ JBL premium stereo on my 92 TC, Cartier comes on but no sound, only an occasional "click". All fuses are good. Are there any fuses on the amps in the trunk?

I don't believe the TC through model year 2008 has the capability of playing MP3 discs through the standard or optional sound systems. Hopefully, the 2009 TC will be updated with Sync, a USB port to support portable music devices and keep them charged, and an dash 6 CD player that supports MP3. I really like the TC, but the audio system is antiquated (others may argue the whole car is antiquated, but it remains the only full-size rwd traditional American luxury car).
#11 of 47 Convert to audio system with CD
Aug 26, 2008 (4:13 pm)
I just inherited a 97 Town Car Executive with the low end audio system (not JBL). I want to substitute a system that includes CD, hopefully without running new wires or making modifications. Does anyone have experience with this, either with manufacturer's equip or aftermarket equip?

Re:Manufacturer's equip: The speakers used in the JBL system can be pulled from a Town Car in a Salvage Yard. If the amplifier can be pulled, take it as well. Very few people have the hearing sensitivity to discern the difference between what you presently have and the JBL system playing against engine and road noise.
As for a CD player, the discriminating ear may notice a drop in higher cycles when the amplifier in the trunk broadcasts to the antenna for reproducing the sound. If you are forced to use that system, the present tape player provides much better fidelity.
Thus, if you insist on a CD system, make sure it is wired direct, NOT relying on the antenna to receive a signal & then transported to the radio unit.

Try replacing your 20 Amp fuse on the amplifier in the trunk. It may be blown. If so you need to find out why it blew or it may blow again.

#15 of 47 2003 Town Car FM radio issue
Jul 10, 2009 (6:43 am)
My TC premium sound system plays great 95% of the time. However, recently my FM radio has been going out intermitently. It will be playing fine one minute, and then I lose all channels. When this happens, I can switch to CD mode and the sound is fine, so I don't thik there is anything wrong with the amplifier. My thought is that I either have a problem with the FM receiver, or possibly a loose antenna contact. I checked the rear windwhield, and the soldered contacts seem OK. It will be out for a few days, and then a couple days later, I can push FM and it works fine. Any ideas ? How do I get at the antenna cnx to check?
#16 of 47 95 town car jbl problems
Dec 03, 2009 (8:55 pm)
My 1995 lincoln town car with jbl system and trunk mounted cd changer is producing only a very, very loud popping and crackling noise. This noise increases in volume when the volume control is increased. If the volume control is turned down to zero, a very faint but clear audio sound can be heard without the popping or crackling. The noise is the same both on radio and cassette. Haven't tried with the cd. Any ideas.
#17 of 47 1995 JBL audio problem. Please Help!!
Dec 10, 2009 (1:39 pm)
I have a 1995 TC w/the Premium JBL audio sytem. I also have a trunk mounted 6 disk CD changer and a mobile phone that was installed in the middle armrest w/the hands free button by the rear view mirror. The problem is that i get sound, but only highs in the doors and no subwoofer or lows from the 6x9's or any speaker. Just the high range sound. Wich amp controlls the lows or the sub? the fuse under the hood seems fine. What could the problem be? Thank u.
