I had a problem like this with my 1999 lincoln continental, The tail light were not working. It must be a safety thing that if the taillitghts dont work , it wont shift. Theres a little switch under the steering wheel, its very easy to change. You just pull it out, and replace it. It costs about $5.

Unfortunately it sounds like your automatic transmission has suffered a catastrophic failure. But to be sure, allow your vehicle to warm up to normal operating temprature, pull the oil level dipstick for the transmission and check the level. It should be in the checker portion of the stick to be correct level. If it is not, adding fluid may help the condition temporarily. Check for leaks while the engine is running. Have Lincoln or transmission specialist have a look. When it comes to transmissions in general, it is best to let the pros handle it for youl
