Yes,think u got scammed.Don't know how they could refill with freon without fan working.If u can disconnect wires to fan motor and use jumper wires direct from fan motor too battery and see if motor runs.Also use a test light to see if you have 12v at plug to motor.Having same problem here as you and my motor checks fine.Still trying to find problem.

I'm making headway and think it is the temperature control module which is a bit difficult to do but likely to be the problem for me & only costs $50. The blower motor runs perfect when running a wire to it and I can actually get the blower going by wiggling the wires on the back of the module. Some great advice and tips on www.lincolnsonline.com with diagrams and lots of people with previous similar issues.
#76 of 109 TC a/c...what is the best setting for coldest quickest?
Aug 13, 2010 (5:27 pm)
Recently, I thought my ac was not working right so I took it to mech. He said they put3/10 of a pound of refrigerant in it and told me proper way to get coldest quickest is to engage "Auto" w manual override fan speed at a lower setting, and w "recirculate" engaged. Well, its been 95-100+ degrees here for the last 3 weeks and always seems to cool just fine in AM and until about 3-4 PM when its 106+.
In AM, I just seclect auto w thermostat set for 60 (lowest setting) and recirculate off. It cools just fine and when I engage recirc it will get even colder. The Problem is, in afternoon after car has set in the Sun all day, It dosen't seem to matter what I select it just takes too long to really cool. 'Ive tried auto, 60 (coldest setting), w/o recirc off ---Manual, dash vents only, 60, and recirc on, but seems no matter which combination of settings I select it just takes too long when the outside temp is above 95. Any thoughts, anyone?
#77 of 109 "Bouncy" TC, anyone?
Aug 13, 2010 (5:38 pm)
I bought an 05 TC a few months ago and have not been all that happy with the ride...which is suppose to be one of the best in luxury cars. It just seems to "bounce" rather than "float" down the road. I'm not talking about weak shocks type of bounce, just, I can feel every crack or bump in the road like overinflated tires (which they are not). When the car is fully loaded ( 4 people)
it rides a lot better. I've tried turning off the air suspension for comparison but it doesn't seem to make any noticeable difference. Any thoughts anyone?
#78 of 109 Sounds like a flap is opening and closing.
Sep 28, 2010 (1:58 pm)
I have a 98 Towncar. Last week the a/c started blowing hot air and it sounds like a small motor is running and some kind of flap is either opening and closing or it is rotating and opening and then flopping shut. When I turn on the A/C it is cold for about 2-5 seconds and then turns max hot. The vent system seems to be working as it will go from floor to vent to defrost, etc.... the temp is always on max hot however. Also, the motor sound and flapping noise even runs while the system is turned off. The motor is sounding weaker and weaker each day. Anyone have any economical ideas? From what I've read on here so far, anything related to the a/c system is a nightmare and very expensive. Thanks.
#79 of 109 2001 Town Car EATC fuse keeps blowing
Nov 23, 2010 (8:11 am)
I have a 2001 Lincoln Town Car. The #6 15 amp fuse keeps blowing. It runs the EATC and it's pretty cold in Illinois in the morning..lol. Any ideas if there is a short or a bad relay. If I turn the key to power the car (not starting, just to get power) it works without blowing. As soon as I turn start the car up it blows right away.
#80 of 109 AC not workink properly
Apr 05, 2011 (7:39 am)
I have a 2000 town car, When i set the ac at 60 degrees it takes 8-10 minutes to start blowing cold air this happens every time i turn on the AC. does anyone know how to fix my problem?

Suggest you have a technician check for the correct amount of Freon or R34. If the system is operating on a low volume of coolant, you can burn out the compressor.

#83 of 109 Lincoln Town car AC problem
Apr 10, 2011 (3:09 am)
I had my ac filled and after shutting the car off the AC wont blow cold untill 8-10 minutes pass. he thinks there might be a sensor in the dash area or in back of the radio that might need canging. Any thoughts or fixes would be a great help. Thakl You.
