Just Got a 93 sc 5 speed! she needs love but has tons of potential. roughly 100k on her, got it with all hvac ripped out of dash (controls), and missing the cluster bezel and needs a tune up bad, wants to cut out when u give throttle, and the brake pedal is stiff and hard to stop. sat for roughly a year. oh and all lights work except headlights lol. any ideas? thanks

If you're missing some hvac stuff you likely have wiring disconnected or compromised by someone's short cut. Get a factory electrical and vacuum manual like this but specific to your year...http://www.ebay.com/itm/1994-FORD-THUNDERBIRD-COUGAR-SHOP-MANUALS-/251549678355?pt=Motors_Manuals_Literature&hash=item3a91877b13&vxp=mtr a harborfreight cheapo voltmeter, the correct manual, a fistful of fuses and you're on your way. These books are invaluable in situations like these..Unfortunately I only have the service manual for a 92...
The bullet points for possible source when either both low or both high beam head lamps do not work are
*loose connections
*damaged dimmer switch
*open wiring
Hope this helps. Good luck

Hi Charlie, my names Jim, don't get on here much.

You might look at the scshop for the repair manuals and parts.
Look under misc for the manuals. Ryan is a really good guy. Honest, and customer service is excellent.
His prices are also very reasonable
