Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Ok so I've had a few minor hickups which is y I got
it so cheap, which I expected when I got it. Ac had a
clogged orphase tube charged ac boom its fixed,
had the common auxiliary fan not working problem
causing it to kick charge, so we were messing with
the fuses, pulled the one from the heated seats
boom aux fan works put new fuse back in heated
seats, my check engine light kicks on... So I
unplugged the battery for about an hour or so, and
as expected check engine light went out took back
to reread codes, nothing praise the lord... Now my
last problem... After plugging the battery back in
passenger side front and back and drivers side
back doesn't unlock or lock even with the interrior
button.. And they were just working perfectly
before battery disconnect is there something I need
to reset oh and if it matters the key pad outside the
car still works as normal,

And just an add-on question I was in the fuse box
and noticed there were no fuses in the slots
marked T/T charge, T/T lights, & something else
I'll be on for a while so any help would be nice

well it sounds like you are in the right place (fuse box). keep looking there it sounds like you blew a fuse. this might help. http://www.ask.com/youtube?q=1996+lincoln+town+car+fuse+box+picture&v=vCSM5OU8iaI&qsrc=472

Nope under dash and under hood fuses are all good...


do you have a lock & unlock switch? it might be on the door itself. it sounds like you have a short in the door and i would think the drivers. one of the wires in the door switch could be the problem or just the switch itself.

Spooky enough... The problem has fixed itself... With the clitchyness of it all I'm going to gess its a computer issue... It's too random for it to be anything else... Thanks everyone and believe me if it wasnt for the randomness that it cured itself I would have checked every answer given... @
