Hello All

Been tinkering with a few things on the 93 TC. First the keyless entry is not working. I read a posting here about a blue control module inside the drivers door. I Pulled the panel off and checked it out yestreday. What I found is that module is the one touch down relay for the window, not the control module for the entry system. Does anyone know where or if there is a module that controls that function. I have also checked fuses and none are blown. I have replaced the key pad and, still the same problem. Second the trunk pull down motor is not functioning. I checked the motor and the limit switch on the motor they are good. I replaced the switch neer the latch on the trunk lid. Still the darn thing dosen't work. I have adjusted it to where the trunk will close normally, but still I would like to get it working. If any one has any helpfull info. to pass along I would sure appreciate it.:)

Thanks Mike

Hi Mike,
The trunk pull down is a tricky assembly, most folks just replace the whole thing. I don't have any direct experience with that one to share :(

The keyless module in 1993 was installed behind the glovebox bucket. I don't recall if a color was ever mentioned.

Thanks Steve
I can allways count on information from you. I have the trunk set up where it closes tight and shuts like a normal car. The trunk pulldown asm. works flawlessly on my 91, it would be nice to get it working on the 93. For now I can live with it the way it is.

On the keyless system I can't really live with that not working, I like the convenience. There is a blue airbag module behind the glove box. In the passenger side upper kick panel area, there is a black box. The box has a grey double connector, a black connector and a spot wher the antenna wire plugs into it. I have noticed some clicking in that box when the door is opened and the light in the lower part of the door panel comes on. Other than that I don't see any other modules. Do you think that is it ? One more question, while I was in the dash poking around I noticed a green sensor that mounts on the top of the dash on the passenger side. It looks like some sort of photo eye, it's not the dusk /dawn sensor for the headlights that is on the drivers side. My 91 dosen't have it, only the 93. Any ideas? You really seem to know a lot about these Town Cars. It has been over a year now since I got my first town car, I have learned a lot since then.
Thanks Again Steve

Check this thread, scroll down to Dereck's reply, he's referring to a 1994 Keyless Module:
<<<< this thread (http://www.lincolnsonline.com/forum/showthread.php?t=33999) >>>>

The sensor above the govebox area on the dash is one of two that checks the outside ambient air temperature. The other is mounted just before the radiator, beside another temp. sensor that's measuring temp. for another function.

I can't say how many plugs go into your Keyless module, I've never seen an older one.

Here's one located in the Left panel of the trunk, on a 1992 SHO:

Hello

Thanks again for the info Steve. I figured out the problem with the trunk pull down. The limit switch is bad on the pull down motor. I swaped everything out on to the 91 which the trunk woorked properly. That told me what I needed to know.
I almost totaled the 91 the other day. I went to pull it back into the barn the and brakes totally went out on me. I came within inches of smashing into my tractor. The pedal went right to the floor, I pumped it up and couldn't see any fluid leaking, but the fluid was a bit low in the tank. I swaped out the master cylinder from one of my parts cars, and still the same problem. I have to have a leak some where. I have a gravel drive way so it's really hard to see any dripping. I guess I'll have to crawl under there and look over all the lines and hoses. I have her parked outback now with the rest of the junkers, so I can't run into anything too good. It's a good thing It happened when it did. I just had it out on a test drive the day before on the twisty narrow road I live on. I was running with the hammer down, If the brakes went out then I could have run off the edge of a cliff. That could have been the end of both of us.

Thanks Mike
