I can't get my 1999 lincoln town car to start

I will try to give you 2 sets of senarios depending on whether it cranks over or not.

There is a safety switch on the Brake pedal which sends a signal to the Brake lights and a starter circuit. If the Brake lights do not light up with a foot on them, then a starter signal will not go through either.

Look under the Driver's dash for the Brake switch on the Brake pedal lever. It could be broken of pushed out if place.

Cranks but no start. The Inertia switch is common problem. It can be located in the trunk or behind the kick panels of the front floor. It has a reset button to push.

Loss of fuel pressure. After checking the Inertia switch if you still have no fuel pressure the pump may be bad.

Now there are other reasons like a dead battery, bad starter, etc.

We need more details to supply additional answers.

Your trans will not come out of park until the brake pedal is depressed and the brake light switch activated, you most likely have an issue switch or the wiring to it, 1st thing to do is see if the brake lights work, if not jumper the switch at the brake pedal and see if the lights work, if they do, and it will still not come out of park there is a problem with the release solenoid on top of the steering column, you will have to drop the column to service that solenoid, but most often the issue is with the brake light circuit, either the switch or the connector to it..
