Lincoln Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hello and welcome! My name is ***** ***** I can assist you with your question. Do the headlights and dome lights work?
So what is the battery voltage? And what is the voltage on the fuses under the hood? It sounds like you might just have a bad connection or a blown fuse.
On this vehicle, it appears the central junction box is located on the inside of the vehicle. I have attached a pic. Check all of those fuses in there. Also, check the fusible links under the hood. I have also uploaded a picture.
Ok, then check for power on the fuses and check the fusible links
YES, you will have to check power going in and coming out of the fusible links. Just follow the main positive cable from the battery onwards checking for voltage on various points to see where you are losing voltage.
Ok, sounds good.
HAPPY NEW YEAR!!!
Stick with me and we will get to the bottom of the problem.
Here is a wiring diagram for your power distribution on your vehicle spread over three pages. It real easy. Just follow the voltage from the battery down through all of the circuits. Start checking in fandom places to see where you are loosing voltage and then work your way bad or forward in the circuit as needed. You will see the battery in the upper left corner of the first diagram. Follow it from there to the ignition switch. Check power in and out of the ignition switch with the key on to see where the voltage lose occurs.
A bad battery or a battery that does not have a charge on it is very possible. What is the battery voltage at?
Not only it can be low on voltage (low on a charge), but then the battery can be bad and drop below 2 or 3 volts when there is actually a load on the battery.
That is why we need to check battery voltage WHEN TURNING THE KEY TO THE CRANK POSITION with the battery installed.
Maybe we can speak on the phone if your willing to do so?
Ok, no problem. Keep me posted.
