    A/c compresser is not working properly
    a/c compresser comes on and off whiles a/c or heater is on
     
    • Nissan Technical Advisor
      If the compressor is not turning, make sure the magnetic clutch engages when energized. Underlying problems here may include a bad relay, fuse, wiring problem or a defective clutch. If the clutch fails to cycle on and off when the A/C is turned on, jumping the clutch lead with a jumper wire from the battery will show if the problem is in the clutch or elsewhere. If the clutch engages, the problem is the clutch power supply (relay, fuse, wiring, switch or control module). Refer to a wiring diagram and work backward toward the battery to find out why the voltage is not getting through.

      Check the voltage of your battery, it is possible that your battery is dead. You should trace the continuity of your current path from you battery to you ignition system. It is possible that your fusible link is blown and/or your battery terminal/cable is loose/corroded.

    Are 1988 Lincoln Town Car Signature Series part interchangeable with 1996 Lincoln Town Car Signature Series parts?

      Sounds like your flasher relay is already faulty.

    • J and K AUTOMOTIVE TOWING AND REPAIR
      It is on the Driver side of engine in between the COP's (Coil on plugs) simply unplug the wire use a 19 or 3/4 deep well socket and unscrew it and put it new one... The whole process should only take 10-15 minutes.

      Could be one of the doors is not closing properly everytime you start the engine, shut the doors properly and start the engine, observe if the noise reappears.

    I was able to start my car, but when I did, it kinda hesitated as I turned the key and then it just started right up.
    I then turned it off, and tried starting it again, and then all I could do is just turn the key. There was no clicking, like it could be the starter. The power remaind on, but there was no cranking or anything. I can only turn the key and nothing happens. Do you ...

      Check the battery state of charge if correct and check the cables if loose or corroded, check also the wiring from the battery to the starting motor, and if everything is ok, bench test the starting motor, could be a defective solenoid.

    Where can I locate the fuel filter?
     
    • J and K AUTOMOTIVE TOWING AND REPAIR
      To relive the fuel pressure look under hood on drivers side front of engine locate the fuel line where it goes into the fuel rail,trace it back a little ways and you will see a schrader valve for checking fuel pressure. Remove the plastic cap and take something like a small screw driver and press the pin in center to release pressure.
      To replace fuel filter you have to remove left front wheel and inner plastic fender panel and fuel filter is located behind this at the back area.

      Do you mean you can turn your key but nothing happens? Did you already try to check the condition of your neutral safety switch (if equipped)? Did you also check the condition of your battery and its terminals/cables?

    My front heater doesn't blow hot air
    no matter what i do with the temperature control, also i know , the hot water it;s flowing to the hater core, anyone have an idea????
     
    • yboy82

      Are you certain that the water flowing in your heater core is hot? Because most of the time a defective thermostat is the culprit why you don’t have any heat. Did you also check the your coolant level and the condition of your heater control valve?

    Well a bad computer miss with the wipers and other etc. stuff
     
    • J and K AUTOMOTIVE TOWING AND REPAIR
      OK Allen i did some looking and here is what i found hope it helps you good luck

      A real common problem is a bad ground for the motor's mounting plate. While it's turned on and not running, use a grounded test light to check for voltage on the case of the motor. If there is, attach a new ground wire between the plate and the van body. Usually the motor will not run at all in any speed once it comes to a stop, but it's worth checking the ground.

      A defective Body Computer is the biggest cause of a dead wiper motor. I never heard of one running slow though. They normally quit completely. Some people have figured out how to add a switch to bypass the computer so the wipers will run constantly at one speed. The delay feature won't work but the washer still works normally. The Body Computer is bolted to the fuse box in front of and above the brake pedal.

      The multifunction switch should not cause the motor to run slow because its only job is to signal the setting to the Body Computer. The Body Computer controls the current to the wiper motor. You might also check for any related relays under the hood. I can't remember there being any, but if there are, pitted contacts will cause high resistance and a drop in current to the motor. That can be intermittent. A quick test is to switch a suspect relay with one of the other ones like it.
