The gear shifter will not let the car go into gear


there is a cable running from the shifter to the key. these stretch over time and cause this problem. if you remove the cover for the shifter and remove the plastic lock and cable it should be fine. it is a safety latch and on some cars there is a button by the lever to release the catch. it is safe to operate without this hooked up but can be shifted by kids with the key off... hence the safety switch. normally not a problem for most people tho

1999 Lincoln Town Car shifter stuck in park


Look at the swith on the brake pedal, it shoud have two green wires on it. Make sure it is not melted or the wire is broken. If it is damaged you can connect the 2 wires together to get it into gear, but this should be temporary as it bypasses the neutral safety switch.
