1997 Lincoln Town Car Signature Series 4.6L from North America
Luxury at its Finest!
When I first bought the car, after about 3 months the transmission started slipping. After about 4 months the transmission went out on it, I purchased a brand new one, and haven't had a problem since.
Now I have a alarm problem, every time I get in or out of the car, the alarm goes off... also if the car is just chillin there, it will go on and on! I'm taking it to the dealer ship tomorrow, I will post what it is later!
Excellent car though, really comfortable, looks beautiful, and i love it!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I have the same problem with my 1997 Town Car. The alarm starts honking the horn after a few hours of just sitting. Sometimes, I can turn it off with the key fob, but sometimes I have to disconnect the battery. The dealership says it is probably a bad sensor. They replaced one, but did not fix the problem. I don't think they know what they are talking about in this case. If you have a solution, it would be most welcome.

My alarm was going off also, the ignition switch was changed and that fixed the problem. Best American car ever built!

My alarm goes off too. The speaker wire is unplugged so it's nothing more than just flashing lights. :P.

The horn on my 1997 Lincoln Town Car honks periodically once or twice a week for no reason at all.
Please give me some solutions to my problem.

Most regular gas now has "ethanol" added, which may cause pinging issues in older engines.
