Question about Lincoln Town Car
Fuel pumps all get power for a couple of seconds when ign is turned on, then it gets power when cranking and , obviously continually when running.
you need to check the rail pressure by finding the valve at the end of the fuel rail and depressing it. BE CAREFUL??FUEL UNDER PRESSURE!!!!!
If ther is good bust of fuel from valve you will need to have your car scanned to check for fault codes.
I would assume that a sensor has failed...there are many.
Please dont guess, it will cost you a fortune...get it scanned an verified.

Have you checked the inertia switch to make sure it was not tripped?

well first the fuel pump relay is bad, that is easily replaced. next you have no spark. the first thing you do is take the cap off the distributerand crank the engine. if it spins that tell syou thyat at least the tang or gear on the shaft of the distributor is ok and not broken. next thing is remove the #1 plug and use a 1/4 drive extension 6" long and turn the crank by hand until the #1 cylinder is top dead center(put the extension in the hole of head where the plug was and you should feel the top of the piston also make sure you can feel the top of the piston with half the extension this way you don't drop it in the cylinder with the piston at TDC(top dead center) the rotor of the distributor should be pointed at the #1 firing position. IF it does not that means your timing is off and you need to retime it by taking off timing cover and either replacing the belt/chain or gears. now if you do not have a distributor and you have a coil pack there could be only 2 things that won't give spark. either a bad coil or your altenater is bad(the battery is responsible for starting not running the vehicle like alot of people assume. the altenator energizes the coil which inturngives spark. hope this helps you please rate this thanks

SOURCE: fuel pump relay location
There may be a fuel pump fuse or connection you can undo but the relay is integrated with the entire injection system. If you disconnect it, you will lose spark as well. I would look through the fuse box first, I will drag out my wiring diagram in the morning and give you more specific details.

You said you have fuel flowing from the inlet line of the injection pump? But not at the injector lines?

The power supplied to the fuel pump, ignition coil, fuel injectors,
and parts of the power module is controlled by the logic module through
the Automatic Shutdown Relay (ASD); the idea is to shut off fuel
pressure and the ignition systems when the key is turned off to prevent
fires, dieseling, and other problems.
The ASD relay is closed (allowing power to flow through
it) when the ignition is first turned on. If the signal from the
ignition reference is lost while the engine is running, or if the turbo
boost pressure reaches and exceeds the over boost cut-off point, the
logic module cuts power to the ASD, which in turn removes power from the
fuel pump, ignition coil, injectors and those parts of the power
module. This causes the engine to shut down.
Failure of the automatic shutdown relay is often shown as inexplicable stalling or refusal to start.
