Customer Question
My 1998 Lincoln Town...

My 1998 Lincoln Town Car appears to have no trunk light, is this even possible?

Mechanic's Assistant: Just to clarify, what are the exact lights you're talking about?

A light that would go on when the trunk lid is opened.

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Town Car yourself? What have you tried so far?

Opened the trunk last night to put luggage in, it was completely dark, looked for a light bulb and couldn't find one, then noticed there were no detents to indicate there was even a light in the trunk.

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

No, that's the issue.

There is a light in the trunk. Open the trunk and look under the back edge of the trunk just left of center about where the back glass meats the trunk. There will be a lens mounted flush with the top of the trunk that you have to remove to replace the bulb.

What Customers are Saying:

AlvinC answered a question about my Ford truck that only someone with an in-depth knowledge of his subject would have known what was going on.

Rich DUSA

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.
