there should be a black shroud around the new ignition barrel, ensure that the key from the car your are taking it from is matched, it should be if you are removing it all from scratch.

once you have the new barrel, you simply plug in the wire from the new black shroud part into your car, the code is inside the black thing and the transponder is inside the key, so long as they are from the same car then it should work.

Quite easy

My 2003 lincoln towncar won't start, i replaced the battery and starter.. Wont even turn over. The dashboard won't light up checked all fuses and relays all good

Looks like it might be the ignition switch.

This is a long shot, but some luxury cars can check the key being used and won't allow power to start. I think this is for newer cars though.

My 1996 Towncar continues torun after the key is turned off. I replaced the key cylinder but the problem contains. Any suggestions?

Does the engine run normally or does it buck and snort like a mad horse? The key cylinder operates the ignition switch. It may be the problem. If it bucks and snorts there is a build up of carbon inside the cylinders of the engine.

1995 lincoln towncar the radio changes one its own - bell dings even with the key out of the ignition - the ignition switch does wiggle - the battery is drained dead if the sets more then one day.

The problem is the ignition lock cylinder, and the small clip (switch) which detects the key being inserted. The lock cylinder should be replaced and most like the ignition switch too, but it is located on the right side of the steering column about 10 inches below the lock cylinder. Not an easy repair, but not brain surgery either. I suggest a professional mechanic or at least someone who has done the repair before on another FORD vehicle. Your radio changes stations because of the electrical "noise" caused by the key "clip".
