The most frequent cause is the Inertia switch. Usually in a car with Air-ride the switch is located in the trunk next to the Air-ride switch. It has a reset button. Other styles of Inertia switches are behind the front floor kick panels. Do an Internet search for "2001 Lincoln LS Inertia switch location". If you mean the Engine did not crank over- A common problem is a switch on the top of the brake pedal lever. Often the brake lights will not work with this defect. Press the pedal and see. The brake pedal switch often gets hit by a drivers foot and breaks or gets repositioned. Please rate my info.
Please don't pump the gas pedal. It is doing absolutely nothing. The TPS is a potentiometer and sends info to the ECM. The fuel tank is underneath the car, between the rear seat and the trunk. Change the fuel-filter first, then if there is no change then you need to run a test to see what the fuel-line pressure is. If it is below 33psi then you may have a leak, a defective fuel-pump, or fuel regulator.
try putting the car in neutral and starting it or put it in gear and then back in park and try to start it. if this does not work the first thing i would check is the starter connections and the starter. check for power on the small wire and have some one turn the key while checking with a test light. if there is power replace the starter
