  • my 93 TC trunk wont pull down, haven't had a battery prob like the prev person. does anyone know where to get a pull down motor? i checked Advance Auto and Auto Zone. the drivers side window wont go down, when you hit the switch, you can hear it click but the motor doesn't run. Is this likely the motor, they are readily available. Any help with these probs will be appreciated. :sick:

    Can you close it manually?
  • how do you close it manually, it doesnt go closed the whole way, if i can do that, i could live with it.

    I don't remember exactly which connections are to be tapped, but no harm in trying to use an insulated wire to make a connection from the deck lid to the electrical motor mounted on the rear side of the trunk opening. Remove a unit being held with four screws, the connections choice on the side of the trunk will be exposed.The "U" shaped hook can be "motored" down using the wire on the correct connections. I don't remember which connections, but after lowering the hook, the deck lid will shut closer to the fender line.

    Your local salvage yard may have the parts that you need. Also, trunk pulldown motors and window regulators for Lincoln Town Cars are frequently listed on E-Bay.

    When I accelerate the car stalls. This worries me and I took it to the dealership just around six months ago and they changed the plugs and the spark plugs and the distributer and cables. It started all over again and I want to get it corrected once and for all. Any insight on
    what it could be and around how much it would cost?

    Suggest you check out the Mass Air Flow Sensor. After replacing ours, the car runs better with better MPG and we're back to Regular rather than Mid Grade gasoline. :)

    Check all the ash trays for coins or other small metal pices. If the lighters are not in place and you have put coins or other metal in the ash tray it will short and blow the fuse.

    Ford finally agreed to replace the intake manifolds that cracked. Check autoweek.com.They had the infomation you need to have the manifold replaced. Good luck

    My rear air suspension leaks downs when I shut the car off. It does not come back on when I start the car again. After I start the car, I have to open the trunk and manually turn the switch off and then on again. The suspension will be fine until I turn the car off, again. Does anyone know what it might be? I want to sell the car, but would like to get it fixed so it will sell easier.

    There is an adjustment that can be made to the setting that switches on the compressor. To see if your setting needs adjustment, ask three hefty friends to sit in the back seat and then start the car. I bet it would then start the compressor.

    Where is it located and how do I adjust the setting? Thanks for your help.

    Don't know as the Service Manager, Ford dealership only advised me they made the adjustment on mine. Sometimes we go down the road a little high in the rear, but it must have increased the mileage because we are always going "down hill".

    Curious: Did your compressor go "ON" with the people in the back seat?

    I haven't tried that yet. I don't have 3 hefty friends. Ha Ha. Thanks for the info.

    A height sensor is the adjustable device in the suspension system. It is located under the car on the frame near the differential. Caution: Before you mess with any of the suspension components on that Town Car make sure you turn off the switch in the trunk and place jack stands under the car. A sudden loss of air in the system will make the car drop and a heavy load misread will cause the air pump to blow the system. Your height sensor may be defective and you should also check the control module and the relay.

    The 95 town car My wife and I love has got A problem with the strike-peg that the driver door hits. The little plastic bushing was gone and the door was hard to close properly. The replacement unit comes with all the parts. The problem is getting the new part in exact position. Any ideas? Thanks
