1991 lincoln mark vii lsc runs but not when let the key go back t

I have a 1991 lincoln mark vii lsc. i can start the car with the key but if i let the key go back to the run position the car will shut off. if i hold the key forward just shy of engaging the starter i can run the car, but have to hold the key, but nothing inside the car works when i do this(wipers, radio, command center....etc). every once in a while the car will run just fine , everything works properly. i have replaced the starter sileniod, starter, ignition lock(for the key). i am starting to think that it may be the computer in the car. i don't believe that it is the neutral safety switch, i can't start the car unless it is in park or neutral. can anybody help or have had simular problems like this that can point me in the right direction??????

Motor shuts off during the ride 89 Lincoln Mark VII LSC

It is probably in the ignition controle module, this is a common problem with some modules. Once it gets hot it will cause the car to shut down. You can remove it and get it tested. It can be located in one of two locations on the bottom of distributor or on the driver side fender well.

1991 Lincoln Mark VII LSC spark plugs and wires

you don't have to worry about a special tool if you are replacing the wires but you will need a 5/8 socket with a rubber boot and an extension and maybe a swival to remove the plugs if there is an auto zone near by they will print you out a diagram for free
