I had a problem with the interior lights making the battery go dead. I thought the battery was at fault, 5 years old. I replaced the battery and still had the problem. After doing some research: I learned the culprit was, most likely, the LCM. I replaced the LCM $300.00. Now fuse #18 keeps blowing. Is there a common location for a possible short in these models? I made up a jumper with a light bulb and bridged the fuse location. With all of the doors, trunk lid, vanity lights off, and glove box shut: the light is on full brightness. Nothing I do by opening the doors or anything with the interior lights has any effect. That light stays on. There must be a dead short somewhere! Hopefully: there might be a common place in these models where I can look. I hate to unload this piece of junk like it is, because this would hurt the resale value. It's been one electrical malfunction after another. Now I know that all of those Crown Vic's weren't at the dealership for routine maintenance, but for electrical problems. The Panther platform is one of the toughest, but: when it comes to wiring a vehicle: the people at Ford don't know squat about how to wire one!

Is this a common problem? With only 37,000 miles on the car should these parts be failing? Anyone else experiencing this expensive issue?

MY engine light came on right after an oil change. I took my car back and they told me and showed me 4 "spark plug" like things under my car and told me I had 4 oxygen sensors that were not functional on the diagnostic test, so they replaced them charging $129 each $240 in labor.

the fuse for the dome light blows if the fuse does not blow the battery discharges

message board states " change engine oil soon". I recently changed the oil.

I do my own oil change.
