No power locks. The only things that worked were the windshield wipers and brakes. When I got home I tested the battery and it was reading 6 volts.
I jumped the car and reread 14 volts while the car was running. I let it charge and then things seemed to be ok for a few more days. Then it happened again. I redid the steps from above but this time I never got over So this time I replaced the battery and the alternator.
I replaced the alternator with a 6G alternator so it required a new pigtail. I got everything installed and when I tested the battery it read I let it run for awhile and then I tested it again this morning and it was still reading Cut to now. I left work to pick up some money from the bank and as I'm driving my radio cuts out. My stomach dropped because I knew what was happening.
$152.57 - $379.98
Few seconds after the radio cut out I lost the instrument cluster. I was near my mom's house and was able to limp it there and borrow her car. I'm at work right now. I'll be heading back over there with my tools after work.
Lincoln Town Car Alternator/generator/regulator Problems
Any ideas?! All2kool Senior Member. Town Senior Member. I am not knowledgeable on the alternator models, but I think your car had the 4G and the Police interceptor came with a 6G, and in the earlier models had an integral regulator. So what kind of 6G regulator do you have? Attached is the charging system electrical diagram for the Town Car that may help in determining the new pigtail connections, if they actually changed. When the problem occurred the first time it did not appear to affect all your electrical systems since your engine was running?
Were any other systems besides the wipers working. The battery junction box may have a problem with corrosion. Good luck. All2kool said:.
If it's corroded or disconnected, that would be an issue. Town said:. There are 2 battery grounds on the Town Car, identified as G and G in the attachment for post 3. One is located by the battery and the other by the starter motor. Attached are the location diagrams. Do you have diagrams for the ignition ground? Steering wheel controls? I think I may have a faulty ground there as well. I often hear the turn signal relay clicking without the signals being activated.
Your car or truck is outstanding because of its great performance and great style, so to have it purring along in top condition you'll want the acme in high-quality parts.
