1999 Lincoln Town Car Executive 4.6L Park/Tail Lights VIN: 1L1FM81W7X
Tail lights and front parking lights do not work even when the head lights are on. Has anyone come across this? I believe it is not related to this vehicle being a limo as it was build to Ford QVM Specs. This system is fused to the #5 fuse which is live on bot...
