The vehicle speed sensor or VSS or the speedometer itself is the problem. The cruise control won't work without a working speedometer and the speedometer won't work without a good VSS so either the VSS or the speedometer need to be replaced since neither is working. If you take it to AutoZone, they will get the trouble codes read for free which may help determine exactly which part is not working. Let me know how this turns out.

Could be a defective speed sensor or open fuse. If your Town Car has steering wheel cruise controls, the defect could be in those controls.
