2000 Lincoln Towncar will not stay running

My 2000 Lincoln Town Car Executive Series will start when I turn the key, but when I release the key, the car dies. Now the Service Engine Soon Light stays on.

    This has happened five times this year. The engine turns over but doesn't catch. AAA guy got it running by pressing gas and brake at the same time and getting it into drive. It got me on the road but I hate to think of my elderly parents, who own the car,to have to deal with situation.

I have a 2000 Lincoln Towncar that will not come out of park and also the 3 brake lights are not working..PLEASE help me solve the problem


Jo Ann , under the brake pedal there is a switch that is bad that needs replaced. To side step it so you may travel/ use your car. With 1 foot on brake turn key to on position then move gear shifter into natural turn key all the way to start, bam car is out of park and ready to roll/ drive.

Yes, you will eventually ruin the catalytic convertors. So what may be a $200 dollar repair may turn into a $1500 repair.
