Customer Question
I have a 2000...

I have a 2000 town car with brake light switch and melting wires what is a fix for this so it does not happen again. the wires are too short now and replaced switch three times.

Mechanic's Assistant: Thanks. Can you give me any more details about your issue?

After connector melted used fast wire connectors and replaced switch would last about 200 miles or about two weeks. I read replacing the wire harness with a heavrier wire works and some times not. Iwent to our local Lincoln dealer and the never heard about this happening also would not work on it because they would only replace all wiring and cost too much. car has 17500 miles

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
