Huge win for car owners! All TSBs to be made public. The Center for Auto Safety just made the NHTSA (US Government) make public the full text of all TSBs from now on. They are the same organization that has petitioned the NHTSA & filed lawsuits to protect car owners over exploding gas tanks & other major safety issues. Whenever you drive in your car, you are safer thanks in part to a lot of work over the years by this small but very effective consumer advocacy group.

after lots of bullshit testing, it was the lcm, whenever the lights go out i just bang on the unit under the dash. it usually stays on till restart. but to fix it u pull it out of its little(cage) and a couple screws, then open it up, it will be one of the little black sealed boxes on the circuit board. all 3 are grouped together, there are little contacts inside of them, u can de-soldier the black boxes off the board or use a hot wire or knive or a dremel real carefully and get that basterd apart. clean the contacts and good to go.. or just find another LCM unit and plug/unplug and change it..

2004 police crown Vic I was driving down the road. In the city on my way home and the

Headlights just cut off and then they would cut back about 5 mins later.

And my brake lights were out too. I took it to the shop and they said it was the headlight control

Module. It was 500$ for the part itself and another 200 bucks for labor.

That was the problem on my car, I never heard of a problem like this and it sucked

This is a very common problem on 03-04 Grand Marquis and Crown Victorias. I must replace the Lighting Control Module with a new or different one.
