Alternator or voltage regulator going bad. Not keeping a costant voltage/amp, it fluctuates.
ALTENATORS ARE THREE-PHASE UNITS, THESE PRODUCE A SUPPLY OF VOLT/CURRENT IN A/C FORM. THE CIRCUIT(S) ARE NEITHER POS OR NEG BUT RATHER DEPENDING ON THE PHASE DECIDES WHETHER POS OR NEG WILL FLOW... THE REGULATOR SHORTS TO GROUND ANY AMOUNT OF VOLT/CURRENT OVER ITS MAXIMUM AND A BUILT-IN RECTIFIER CONTROLS HOW THE CURRENT FLOWS AND IN WHAT PREDETERMINED DIRECTION IT IS ALLOWED TO FLOW HENCE POS/NEG...
YOUR ISSUE IS THE ALTERNATOR AFTER YEARS OF SERVICE HAS LOST ITS ABILITY TO PRODUCE VOLT/CURRENT THROUGH ONE OF THREE PHASES....
REMEDY:REBUILD OR REPLACE THE ALTERNATOR...
Why do interior lights stay on when engine is shut off on 2001 Lincoln Continental car?
Headlights, interior lights, parking lights,Headlights, interior lights, parking lights,
In a 1997 Lincoln Continental : To the right of your headlight switch in the dash is a ( panel dim ) switch I believe if that is turned all the way up then the interior lights will come on
Should be in the main fuse block. Look for a fuse labeled "courtesy".
probably the fuse is blown.
when you open the door to your vehicle or unlock it with the key FOB, the lights turn on. usually the interior, headlights, and reverse lights shine.
Perhaps you turned on the interior lights when you were adjusting the headlights?
Hi, A friend had the same ploblem with his 2001 Lincoln Continental. The lights on the keypad and interior lights would randomly turn on. The problem was a defective keypad water was shorting the switch.
It sounds like a blown fuse or a bad head light switch
You probably turned them on by accident. They are controlled with the same pull switch that turns on the headlights. By twisting the switch to the far left it will click and the dome lights will turn on, by twisting it to the right it will turn off the interior lights and will then dim the dashboard lights.
pretty easy really, make sure your interior lights are not turned on. Your headlights control should also be the interior light controller. Turn it clockwise or counterclockwise to turn your interior lights off. You'll run your battery down if you dont
If you turn up your interior dashboard light settings, then the radio display will be brighter too. The radio dims to the setting for the dashboard when the lights are turned on.
how to turn off dome lights to my 2005 navigator
Turn your low beam headlights on and then pull the headlight knob towards you to turn on your fog lights
Press dome override button 3 or 4 times till you here a beep to put headlights and interior lights back on auto
There are little black rods sticking up by the head lights that have a spot to put a screwdriver in. You turn these rods to aim the headlights correctly.
change the head light swicth
If the interior lights stay on while driving on a 2002 Impala, there could be a problem with the headlight switch. Check the relay center for the headlights that is just behind the headlight switch.
Remove from under the hood, the side marker lights have to be removed before the headlights will come out. You also have to remove the battery and the air box.
Where is the fuse box or fuse that disables the headlights and interior lights in a cadillac eldorado touring
that means your battery will be dead in the morning
Headlights,interior lights stop working.checked all fuses. I would suspect the headlight switch and/or the electrical connection at the headlight switch is faulty.
should be with the head lights as an alternate switch or in combination with headlights, move switches in different combinations to see if you can get them to turn off
junk yard. no company offers any repos for the Lincoln at this time. that goes for headlights and tail lights also. but there should be plenty in local junk yards.
just had this problem with my 2002 durango, the mechanic ran it on the computer and nothing showed up so he disconnected the battery and then reconnected it and everything works now. The headlights, locks, panel lights, interior lights, locks, rear wipers all run through the body assembly moduale. Hope this helps you.
