alldata says 51 is a problem with the drivers seat belt switch. I’ll check it out tomorrow.
Meanwhile here’s what she looks like today. Smells like a hospital inside
Hey pal, don’t take it out on me. You made a rookie mistake. No big deal. We’ve all done it.I'm not your "buddy".
The trunk needed a latch and a pull down module. Everything working normal again. As soon as I plugged in a donor module from Pull-a-part the motor kicked in and the light turned on. I got a latch out there too and the trunk release is back to normal. Sweet.
Now for this air bag light...
Car Nirvana. I like that. I’ve experienced it a few times . This car is almost there!! It’s so nice. Better than any front wheel drive caddy even though I love the 91-93 devilles.It's awesome to read from your first post to how much you've fixed yourself to get the TC running good again! Every update I read makes me smile and "Like" knowing that you're almost at that "car nirvana" that we all strive for with automobiles we own. Let us know if/when you have a name for your sweet TC too.
Some O'Reilly auto stores Can match your color in spray cans..... I have used them to tutch up the outside of my motorhome and the color is perfect.....Colorbond Ford MED DARK STONE. Makes sense. Light stone and dark stone.
edit: called dealer they said it’s called DARK STONE not medium dark stone. That’s also a color available from colorbond. Amazon $20. Looks like a perfect match. We’ll see
This stuff does go a long ways. I don’t suspect having to buy any more for a long time! It’s a very small tub. Don’t know if the pic makes it look big but it’s not. I honestly don’t remember where I got it (it’s been like 4 years) but I’m sure it can be bought online easily. It filled in the low spots on the wheel pretty good. This is the 4th steering wheel I’ve repainted and it always turns out great. But it’s the first time I had pitting bad enough to use the filler. I got a wood grain for my GMC Sierra 5 years ago. Painted it from gray to black. It still looks like the day I did it. once this one gets paint we’ll see how smooth it turned out where the pitting was. Hard to tell right now by looking but it feels really good. It took three really thin applications sanding between each one to get it filled in good. I’ll be able to fill in some of the really tiny pits just by sanding between coats of paint. I’ll be using 1500 grit. I used 400 on the whole thing which knocked it down a good bit. Feels smooth as a baby’s bottom. I’ll def post results. Paint should arrive Saturday.I am curious as to how this leather repair turns out. I have been planning to send my wheel to be professionaly recovered when I take my TC down for a rebuild but, the prices I have seen are pretty proud.
Where did you get the tub of material? I imagine that tub would do 25 wheels.
Thanks for the idea.
Anybody that likes dogs is welcome here.
You should read through the stickies at the top of this forum. There is one about a common water leak you can fix in about an hour.
For the no shifting, there are 2 brake switches, one for the lights & one for the shifter. You probably need this one linked to in post #4.
Lincoln Town Car has 225K on the clock. Recently, I've been experiencing instances of not being able to move the shift lever from P. Key is on, brake pedal depressed, lever will not move. After numerous attempts, it can finally be moved into R or D. What do I need to replace to fix this...lincolnforums.com
For the airbags the leaks are usually found on the section that is folded over. The best way to check is to jack up the body until the bags are elongated and then look for small cracks. Sometimes the 'filter/drier' the air passes through can get clogged, the pump could be bad, the air line could be cut, the solenoids could be stuck and the bags can have leaks.
I would use something like WD-40 to clean the ignition lock.
It sounds like lots of corrosion has been happening. The DDM (Driver Door Module) and the enviormental control module may be salvagable with a cleaning.
For the OBD2 ALDL port check the fuse for your cigarette lighter. There is power supplied from the same circut and if that fuse is blown for some reason a scanner won't be able to connect.
