How do you replace digital display dash lights in a 1994 Lincoln?

There aren't bulbs in the digital display of a 94 Towncar. The whole cluster had to be replaced with a good one and needs to be calibrated to your mileage and such. Check with your local dealer after obtaining a replacement. I would start with a junkyard for replacements.

How do you unjam a car trunk lock?

I had a problem of the trunk not staying close when shut. it was because for some reason the bracket on the bottom side was not seated properly although there were no visible dents or bending. At first i replaced the opening mechanism with one from a junk yard, and that did not work. In the end all that was needed was to change the angle of the bracket on the bottom, to do this.

Loosen the to hex bolts on the bracket

On the bottom side of the bracket put something ~1/8" thick between the bracket and the body of the car ( I used a thick zip tie because it is easy to slide in).

re-tighten bolts.

If it still does not close try using something thicker.

Chevy Lumina

How do you change the thermostat on a 1995 Chevy Lumina LS?

I'm strugling with that right now. The thermostate is in a difficult position. follow the upper radiator hose and it leads into the block under the throttle body. Remove the air filter assembly and you'll c what is the exhaust manifold crossover pipe right in front of the thermostate housing. NICE, it gives you very little room to remove the 2 bolts to the housing and once u remove those then you'll find you have the thermostate housing loose but because of that darn exhaust manifold crossover pipe u don't have enough room to take the thermostate housing out to change the stinking thermostate. So from what I can see you have to remove the heat shield which is cased around the exhauste manifold croosover pipe and if you still can't get enough room to remove the thermostate, (which I'm about to find out)then you'll have to remove the crossover pipe as well just to change the thermostate. If you (and me) do have to remove the crossover pipe then their are 2 bolts on both ends of the pipe leading into the manifolds. But then the tough parts done and once u switch the thermostate over and ATTENTION:remove any old gasket material and put a new gasket in it's place then installation is reverse of removal.

Check Engine Light

Lincoln LS how to reset airbag light?


Here's a site that will explain everything you need to know about airbag lights and resetting the system.


This website gives you the procedure for diagnosing and resetting airbag lights. See if your car is listed here.


On most vehicles, the airbag light should come on for @6 seconds, and then go off if the system is working properly. If there is a fault or a problem in the system, the light will remain illuminated, or flash continuously. If the airbag light does not work properly, some vehicles have an audible tone that sounds indicating a problem with the airbag light system. When the light is on (or the tone is sounding), the airbag will NOT deploy, even in an accident.

The flashing light on your car is telling the answer you need. On some vehicles, the light is flashing a two digit code. Once you know the code, you can most likely repair it yourself. There are fairly easy procedures that most people are capable of repairing.


Some vehicle manufacturers accommodate systems without a scanner (like Toyota, Lexus, Nissan, Infinity, Honda, Acura, Ford, Lincoln, Mazda & Mercury) and some require a scan tool.

Check out these websites also for more info on airbag systems and the light.



Also, you may want to check out this site for information on researching your own vehicle for factory recalls!!!


wallyhow do i reset the airbag light for my Lincoln ls 2001, i hit a pothole and

the airbag light came on.

I think the clockspring in your steering column has broken. Have you noticed any issue with your cruise control and volume controls not working? If you have it is definitely the clockspring which will have to be repaced. The light is on because the bag on the column will not work since there is no continuity.

How do you change the entry door codes on a 93 Lincoln?

Lincoln entry code subjectto change the primary code, a dealer must do.

to get a secondary code, the prodedure is in the owner's manual.

you might have secondary code, which are made using the primary. on some models such as 98 tarus, 88 linc cont ss, etc., there is a white sticker on the passenger trunk hinge (the thingy that holds your trunk to the body of the car), the way to id the sticker is to look and see if it is printed " *#####* ", where the "#" = a number.

lets assume the code is *54345*, you press in the order to unlock driver door, immedieately you press "3" to unlock all doors, "4" to open trunk, "8 and 9" at the same time to lock all doors/set the anti theft, etc., and there is a method for "creating" the secondary codes (which is what i think you have). as far as a dealer is concern, the only way to change the primary is by relacing the module that controls the system...

How do you replace the antenna mast on a 1994 Lincoln?

A new mast from the dealer is about $50.00. You would remove the nuts and grommet at the base of the mast. Then press the up switch, or turn the radio on to get the nylon gear to despool itself from the car- it is best to have two people do this- so one knows which direction the gear teeth face. Start the new nylon gear into the shaft and then turn the radio off, or depress the down button to get the antenna to retract into the car. It may take a few tries to get it- just remember which way the gear teeth are facing before you remove the old one. Replace the hardware, and snug it down.

Crankcases and PCV Valves
Lincoln LS

Where is the pcv valve on a 2000 V8 Lincoln LS?

I was just told where the PCV valve(s)are on my 2000 Lincoln LS by the Service representative of my local Ford dealer. Apparently there are two PCVs. Each is an integral part of the valve cover(s). They tell me that they cannot be replaced without replacing the complete covers. (What a bad design ?). I am finding all this all out the hard way. They tell me that both PCVs are carboned up and plugged. That in turn has created backpressure in the engine and under the valve covers. This has resulted not only in blowing the seals (gaskets?) on the valve covers, but also in filling up one of the plug wells with oil (yes, the spark plugs are under the covers on the LS), and caused a misfiring of the sparkplug. I have been experiencing this misfiring at certain engine speeds during the last few weeks. Also, there has been a faint smell of oil fumes coming from the engine recently. The repair is going to consist of 2 new Covers (c/w PCV valves), new spark plugs, and at least one sparkplug coil. Estimated Cost of repair : $1,100 !! Anyone have any comments ?

How do you locate the moon roof motor on a 1994 Lincoln?

Well, just like on any car, you get the manual for the car. If you get a good manual, i recommend" CHILTONS "brand, then it will tell you how to take out the motor and replace it.

you can also look at the roof of the car from inside and if you see a bulge then there it is...

also you take the car in to the manufacturer this is your local LIncoln dealer, and they will show you...

Personally, I would reccommend staying away from the Haynes/Chiltons manuals for anything more than oil changes and such as that as they cover too many models and years to really get specific about your year. I would suggest getting a manual from or going on eBay and searching for used paper ones or getting a manual on CD for your year and model of car. It gets down to every last nut and bolt along with part #'s for replacements. As to how to get to the motor, it should be inside a hump in the ceiling right above the middle seating position in the rear seat.

Where is the keyless entry code for a Lincoln Navigator 04?

I own a 2003 Navigator and the code is located on the passenger side under the dash. I had to get down with my back on the floor board and I found it on a white sticker behind some wiring on the outerside towards the far right (passenger side). There was a 5 digit code. Take a flashlight and good luck. Rob
