1958 Window Issues

Hello Bill,

My name is Mike, and I live in Houston,Texas. I had a question regarding my '58 Continental.

When I got the car, all the power windows worked and would roll up and down from the switches. The rear breezeway window was frozen to the tracks. I took the backseat out and got the window unstuck. I was using a 12 Volt car battery and jumper wires directly to the window motor to roll the window up and down. Immediately after I put everything back together, I tried rolling the other windows down from the switch and nothing works anymore. I am thinking I fried a fuse or breaker of some sort, but have been unable to locate a fuse box in this car. Any idea where it may be or what may have caused this to happen? Any information you could give me would be greatly appreciated.

Thank You -



Hello Mike -

The 58-60 Lincolns and Marks are great cars, and excellent cars to have and enjoy today. Because they were very innovative and constantly evolving during their production it is necessary for you to have the maintenance manual to diagnose and repair many items. A manual will pay for itself many times over. The circuit breakers and fuses can be fatigued at this time and certain switches can be internally corroded etc. We are going to send you the wiring diagram for the power window circuits for you to use. We need to know first however if yours is a 4 door or a 2 door as the wiring is slightly different. Please let us know so that we can send this info. to you as soon as possible. If you wish to order a manual instead please contact us and we can arrange for one to be delivered to your address.
