Question about 2001 Lincoln Continental
Whils driving car completely shut down. I was able to restart took it to auto repair after testing it nothing showed up. Now car sits in garage and will not start at all. Has new battery!
I think you need another diagnostic done on the vehicle. Or I would have someone check the fuel pump and filter. Fuel filters and clog up and shut a car down.

If you are jumpering the starter, then the battery is not being drained, the starter may have a bad solenoid.
If the problem still is a dead short, a painstaking troubleshooting is required.
Remove one fuse at a time, check for voltage drop, and see which one is the culprit. Then you woud have to locate each item on that circuit and trace the wires for one that is broken, or pinched & contacting ground.
Also, check at night or in a dark garage, as trunk, door, or hood pin switches may be stuck in the open position - and will keep the lights on.
Interesting note - your having to jumper the solenoid on the starter indicates a possible worn/damaged ignition tumbler. If your tumbler is not seating on the OFF detent, your ACC may still be left on even with the key out of the ignition.
