Most likely are coil or ignition module. Test for spark at plugs when failed. Other, could be bad gas cap, fuel pump, other sensor such as crank/cam sensor. Electrical parts can fail as they heat up, and work again as they cool. These can be hard to diagnose because they test good when cool.

02 bonneville transmission slips to false nuetral after warmed up. Shut car off for a minute will drive again for a short time. ?????

Your transmission is probably going into "limp" mode. This happens when the car's computer senses something wrong that is potentially very bad. It is your cars way of telling you to take it to the dealer so they can read the error codes in your computer.

Car starts runs and drives but stops driving if I wait 30 mins car will start and drive again

I think it is the ECU (Electronic Computer Module) that had a glitch in it. If it happens again try to remove the battery negative cable for a few minutes then reconnecting it again. If it starts, it just re-programmed itself. Make sure everything is off when you do this. Radio, heater, everything.

Interior lights stay on wile i'm driving my 2005 lincoln navigator

Only one bad door switch should do that

The 20 min time out is the GEM or Body Module,
which is normal only because you have a bad switch,
otherwise it goes to sleep when either front door opens

Put radio on & open a door,the radio should go off
& kill the time delay if no issues exist
