Question about 1992 Lincoln Town Car
For some designs, an oversize key opening covers the cut-out in the plastic column cover. For these models you would need to remove the column cover to access the actual Ignition switch.
But for the lock cylinder, removal of the Ignition switch is not necessary. With the battery disconnected (to avoid discharge or starter activation); you would seek to find a pin release hole moulded in the bottom of the steering column cover. A nail, drill-bit, or other object is poked into the hole of the steering column to release a spring loaded retaining pin for the lock cylinder.
The lock cylinder has an uneven end to the back of the part to seat in the matching surface on the Ignition switch and interlock with it. This means the lock cylinder can be inserted the wrong way if you are not careful.
There can be other problems that just the lock cylinder will not solve. There are also adjustments in the Ignition switch mounts that affect the Interlock system for the starter. But for the key tumblers a new cylinder can help.

The automatic transmission shift lock control switch
With the ignition in the ON position, voltage is supplied to automatic transmission shift lock control switch. Voltage flows through the normally closed contacts of the automatic transmission shift lock control switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is permanently grounded. This energizes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid causing the transmission shift lever to be physically locked in the PARK position. When the brake pedal is pressed the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open, de-energizing the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. This allows the shift lever to be move out of the PARK position.
