    Can you describe the sound better? Did the car die while you were driving, or did you park it, and it won't start now?

On my 97 Mark VIII a short in the rear lights caused Fuse 32 to blow which also controls the lock that prevents you from shifting out of P under certain circumstances. Fuse may be different # on yours.
Hope this helps

There may be a wire loose. Lie on the driver floorboard with a flashlight shining up into the dash panel. Look up above the brake pedal. Tighten any loose connections you see. Good luck.

My lincoln towncar 98 won't start in park unless i push bra ked and it will go in reverse in park

Sounds like the safety switches are out of place or broken. The brake pedal lockout complete the start circuit. It was designed to do this to prevent runaways which is similar to your car going into reverse whenit should be locked in Park.

Car will not start in park, but will start in neutrel. Car will die as soon as you put it in reverse.

have your neutral safety switch checked or adjusted. if engine dies as soon as it is shifted to reverse, does it so the same when you shift it to drive? if on reverse only, idle is set too low.
