99 lincoln towncar anti theft on, cant start car

Sometimes the car won't start and if you push the car or move it, then it will start. I think the anti theft system sticks.

SOURCE: 1997 Lincoln Town Car. The anti theft system goes

Hello, I had the same problem when my Lincoln was new. Sometimes the battery starts to short out internally and it triggers the alarm. The Dealer put in a new battery and the car was fine from then on.

You also could be having a problem with the AirRide. Some will compensate to keep the suspension from bottoming out and when the battery gets low enough, it will trigger the car Alarm.
You could leave yourself a note on the car seat and open the trunk and shut off the AirRide when it is parked as a test.

If you come out and the suspension has dropped, you will know the AirRide is to blame and act accordingly. Use your reminder note to avoid driving without the suspension being turned on.

Have your battery tested in the meantime. Autozone, Oreillys, and Advance will test it free and scan your car free too!

SOURCE: in order to put my 1994 lincoln towncar in gear i

Sounds like the "shift lock actuator". It's a common Ford/Lincoln problem. It's basically a safety device to ensure the car is turned on and your foot is on the brake b/4 you can place the car into gear. Here is a gr8 piece describing the problem
" This is a problem with the Shift Interlock System and not the transmission. Bet you're glad to hear that. The Shift Interlock System requires the key to be in the "RUN" position and the brake pedal depressed in order to shift out of "PARK". This is to prevent possible vehicle runaway. There are a couple of possibilities here. The first is the Brake Pedal Position (BPP) switch. You can usually tell if this is bad if you have no brake lights at all. Another possibility is a bad Shift Lock Actuator or Shift lock solenoid, located under the console.
First thing to do is check fuses 28 and 32 in the fuse box, if you haven't already done so, and make sure they are good.
78584194.gif To check the BPP switch, check for power at the light green/red and light green wires with a test light with the key in the "RUN" position and the brake pedal depressed. If you have power there, then check for power at the light green wire at the Shift Lock Actuator.
78185284.gif f you have power at the light green wire at the Shift Lock Actuator, ground the black wire. If you hear a click, then you have a bad ground and it needs to be repaired. If not, the Shift Lock Actuator is bad and needs to be replaced."

I hope this give you a better understanding and I wish you the best of luck with your problem.

My lincoln towncar 98 won't start in park unless i push bra ked and it will go in reverse in park


Sounds like the safety switches are out of place or broken. The brake pedal lockout complete the start circuit. It was designed to do this to prevent runaways which is similar to your car going into reverse whenit should be locked in Park.

Lincoln Towncar won't start


When the theft light blinks fast when trying to start the car, check if this occurs; if yes, then the car is in theft mode. I do strongly believe the next step is to program the keys. If the PCM was bad, the light would be steady when trying to start which indicates the PATS system is working correctly.
