It runs through at least one relay. Maybe instead of trying to track wiring down yourself, you could do what I used to do. I went to a local "you-pull-it" wrecking yard and found a car like mine. I looked at that one to figure out how to fix mine. You could go find THAT ignition wire and it would help you locate where yours should be. You might want to pick up some used parts while you're there.

This could be caused by the transmission range selector switch on the tranny, no sure how without the wiring diagram, but seems to ring a bell from my 20 years at a ford delaer.

Need to remove steering column on a 1992 lincoln town car

Remove the steering wheel, turn signal reset (plastic), remove clip and spring. Remove trim to expose the entire colum. Disconnect all connectors. There are four main bolts holding the colum up. Remove the bolts and lower the colum. At the end of the steering shaft there is a bolt going through the colum. Remove the bolt. The colum can then be removed.

2001 Lincoln town car sometimes will not start. Found by tilting the steering wheel up it starts most of the time.This problem only happens periodically, never when it is at the dealer to look at it.

Sounds like you have wires starting to come loose in the steering column. They may be breaking apart or it could be your ignition switch, both are in the column.

Pass key light

That's exactly why it won't start. You can either switch the ingition lock back to the original one so you can use the right key. Or, you can sync the new key with the computer. To do this you or someone else will have to use a gm tech-2 scanner, snap-on modis or an otc genisys scanner. Your local dealer or good repair shop should be able to fix you up. Now, there is another way. The passkey system works on resistance from the chip. In you steering colum there is a 2-wire plug going to the ignition lock. If you pull it out of the colum and cut the plug off. You can pop the chip out of the original key and solder the wires to it. Just make sure you don't heat the chip up to much. After doing this you can use any $10 standard gm ignition lock instead of the expensive ones that use a chipped key.
