Question about 1997 Lincoln Continental
During hot weather the button on the automatic transmission floor mounted gear shift sticks & you can't remove the key. I have tried WD-40 around the button already.This part was changed already when the car was 2years old.
I am not entirely certain I understand what button you are describing. However I think you are talking about the button that has to be depressed in order to shift gears. Aside from the transmission not being able to return to the park position, it has no effect on the key being removed from the ignition lock cylinder. The ignition lock cylinder wearing out and not releasing is a very common problem and requires a new ignition lock cylinder.
