I would imagine that those $250 headlamps have the halogen bulbs and not the H.I.D. headlamps which were optional and are much more expensive to replace. If your car has ballasts for the headlights, then you would have H.I.D headlamps. The Lincoln option code for these is 51H
I was just looking on ebay for headlights and other stuff for my 07 t/c.You can buy a complete headlight set for 250 bucks.Also,any issues I ever had with headlights either involved the bulb or the actual switch in the car.However, I'm no mechanic,just a guy who's owned lots of Lincoln Town Car's.What is and where is the ballast located?
Jittery ride sounds like the tires to me, and if the inflation doesn't seem to make a difference, the actual tires may. Some discount brands, particularly those made in China are not at all ride or road noise engineered, and can mess up the ride on luxury cars noticeably. Now, maybe you have Michelins on the car, in which case, I'm all wet. But it's worth a shot. If the tires ... Read More
After trying to resolve ride quality issue in this most attractive car I have ever owned I sold it back to the dealership. Appearance is not everything and the failure to absorb bumps as the 05 Signature Limited did was an insurmountable issue. I had some options such as taking the car to another Ford service department or replacing shocks myself. I had an extended service contract on this vehicle, I ... Read More
Wanted to update the forum on the Jittery ride in the 2004 Lincoln Town Car. We have reached a point where the problem is unresovlable in that the dealership vehamently states that the ride is normal for this model and year. I have no air tight method that to challenge that finding. When I make a final disposition I will report it here in that I appreciated all the information I ... Read More
I bought a 2004 towncar. Under the carpet in front floor board,passenger side was full of water. I opened glove box and had my wife to pore water from outside around the cowl. Water was coming from what looked like above heater box, leaking on top of heater box. I sealed underneath the cowl, under the bolts, gaskets, etc. Had wife to pore water the next day, after sealant dried, no ... Read More
I have a 2004 Town Car and on the weekend with my young daughter driving it I felt the shudder and swore we were going over rumble strips. It did this about 4 times in the course of 20 miles and it seemed to happen when the car was going between 3rd and overdrive 4th gear. The local trans shop says no cure except to replace the 4th gear clutches and ... Read More
I have found the water leak problem for a 2004 Towncar. I had water on the front pax side and rear pax side floor mat area. Both were wet from underneath. I took out both seats and middle console and pulled up the carpet. I was shocked to find pool of water underneath the carpet in the footwells of each Pax front and rear sides. The carpet was soaked a lot ... Read More

29 MPG is a regular average for me in my 2005 T.C. in highway driving. I am light on braking if there is no one behind me which I'm sure saves fuel and brakes. My DTS gets around 26.5 on the highway but weighs 400 lbs. less than T.C. I use regular fuel in T.C. and premium in DTS. At 29 MPG average I really don't feel I need a hybrid ... Read More

I own a 2004 Town Car Ultimate (no sunroof) that has a problem in the trunk area. After it rains, when I open the trunk, water drains out of two holes on the underside of the trunk lid. AS the trunk lid is opening, the water goes directly into the trunk area. I have complained to Ford Motor Company about this and they say it is within factory specifications. I would ... Read More
I have a 2003 TC and the panel lights will dim down automatically when I go into somewhere dark a tunnel carwash, or under thick trees. It dos this independently of what position the headlight switch is in. Turn up your pannel light dimmer switch to full bright at night as see if the same thing happens.
I enjoyed your message. I own both a 2004 Cadillac Deville and a 2005 Lincoln Towncar Signature Limited. I like both cars but agree with you that the Lincoln is by far the more attractive looking vehicle, other advantages Lincoln, much more quiet ride, much better braking from transmission, better cruise control. My Lincoln is equipped with traction control but Lincoln does not offer stability control. I do not live in ... Read More
Yes, it's still under warranty. The service rep gave me a lot of arguments when I saw the dimmer switch fault. It naturally makes me wonder.
Isn't it under warranty?
I bought my 2004 Town car early this year, and the panel lights keep going out, without warning, intermittently. They come back after a few minutes, so when I've taken it in to the dealer, they can't 'reproduce' the problem! Also, the dimmer switch does not function..no dimming. Is there a connection? By the way, the service dept. is balking at replacing the dimmer switch. Does anyone know if it's such ... Read More
Hi. . . Livery car drivers, in my neck of the woods, claim that the Lincoln Town Car's traction is NOT all that in wintry conditions, both on snow or icy streets/roads. At least the few drivers I have asked reply that way. Perhaps their TCs are not equipped with traction control, pre 2004? What I'd really like to do is purchase a 2004 or '05 certified preowned model (the ones ... Read More
Just bought my Town Car 2005 vintage, also own a Cadillac Deville 2004 vintage. After just a short period of owning both cars I can say I really like both equally and enjoy having the choice of one form of comfort versus the other. Are there other owners here that own both cars? If so can you share your experiences, feature preferences, strong and weak points of these two fine cars? ... Read More
We have a 97 TC, (actually this is my husband's car -- he really loves the look and most of the car) thinking of trading it for a 2003 or 2004 TC -- after reading your post, don't feel too confident about a new Lincoln. Like the drive, comfit and all about the TC (except for the Engine Light being on most of the time - computer diagnostics have not found ... Read More
Re: Gas and brake too close... I have had same problem with my '01 Sig TC since I bought it in July '01, and told the DLR that I had heard they were fixing this on Taurus and other Lincoln/Ford vehicles. They had a tool that they measured the space with, and if it "passed" they did not fix it. Mine "passed" but I still step on Gas and Brake at ... Read More
Kinley, I really can't discuss personal experience with the dealer because I've never needed anything done on my vehicles that relates with me having to take it into the dealership. When I've needed new tires, I'll do Sears. Oil change (when I remember), on my own. So I couldn't give you a confirmed answer. Personally (wild guess here), if it's an emergency sitation such as being stranded 100 miles from the ... Read More
The 2004 Town Car will not see any improvements, for 2003, enough was done. If anything, a few packages might be shuffled around, and a new Navigation system might be offered, but thats about it. Also, these rumors of a larger V-12 engine, are not true. These came from a spy pic, as one was testing the 6.8 V-10 Triton engine. Making some journalists believe a V-12 version, was the answer ...

I could be mistaken, but I don't think the 2004 Town Car is a major redesign. For more information, you might want to visit the main Lincoln Town Car discussion in our Sedans board at:
A gentleman from Lincoln advises the 04 Towncar will have the more powerful V8. Have you heard this as well?
Wouldn't it be nice if Lincoln had an engine/transmission package to call it's own - like Caddilac does with the Northstar? Here is my idea: Lincoln should produce an aluminum block version of the 5.4 SOHC V8 used in Ford's truck line for duty in the Town Car. With the proper tuning this engine could easily produce a smooth, silent 280hp and 350lb-ft of torque. Plus, it would fit under the ... Read More
The 2004/2005 model year will be Lincoln's defining moment...as it stand this is when the "real" totally redesigned cars hit the market. jerry.... it was the S R
Many of us love the TC, but it will never gain market share until FORD offers at least 300hp (even as a performance option). The Caddy has had 300hp for years, and will soon move up even higher - also will go to RWD soon. Unless the TC makes some substantial changes to the drivetrain, market share will continue to decline. If the Lincoln dealers did not have the LS models ... Read More
From Popular Mechanics "Spy" 2004 Lincoln Town Car V12 There are big plans afoot for Lincoln. Along with a general upgrading of all models is a project within Ford's Premier Automotive Group, of which Lincoln is a critical part, to create a real street superiority for the Town Car. This vehicle will offer a high-performance 6.8-liter V12 instead of the current 4.6-liter V8. Special ornamentation will set the V12 apart from ... Read More
