Sounds like the steering wheel is locked against the ignition. If the wheels are turned and they put pressure trying to turn back naturally the ignition will lock. Try applying pressure to the steering wheel to the left and right while turning the ignition and that should release it.

The wheels turn should make no difference.

Try turning the wheel both ways while trying to turn the key...it may be in the lock detent position. if that doesnt work, then you need to get the lock cylnder replaced.

My car won't start, power to everything up until you turn the key the last bit.


Could be: park netural switch, battery, battery cable, starter or just battery connections. check the b. connections first. Have you tried to jump it?
Check for power to the starter by having somebody else try to start it while you check for power there. If there is power replace starter if not check the above.

Parking Brake not working on 1998 Town Car


check to see if you have any brake pads left inside the drum, this can have happened because someone drove with the parking brake on, if everything is ok, then go ahead and adjust the wire
to the parking brake, you should start feeling it about 3 click. and in full half way down or so

I have a 1997 Town Car and it runs perfectly fine until i park it, then try to start it and put it in gear, it will start up just fine with no noises, and the battery, lights, and everything else is fine,...


Check to see if your brake lights come on when the brake pedal is depressed. If they do not come on, the problem could be the brake light switch or associated connector/wiring. The brake light circuit controls the solenoid (control) that allows the shifter to come out of the park position. The brake light switch is connected to the brake pedal arm. You May have to remove a cover panel (three plactic retainers) to see the switch. A possible solution is to turn the ignition key to the 1st position, then shift the car into neutral. This should allow you to start the car and shift into any gear. HOWEVER, you may not have brake lights (use hand signals) and when you park, use the emergency brake after stopping, shif the car to neutral and not PARK. This will allow use of your car until you can get it properly fixed.

Can not get car out park


You may have the park paul in a bind. Grab the steering wheel and turn it hard to the right or left depending on which way it is in a bind, while at the same time turning the ignition switch. If this does not help and you are parked on an incline you may have to have a few men push it up the incline until the brake releases.
