Question about 1999 Lincoln Continental
My problem is that when my car reaches normal operating temperatures the transmission sometimes begins to make a really annoying whining noise and will slip or have difficulty shifting into different gears. If I turn off the car and restart it all is fine. The noise is gone and it shifts beautifully. The fluid is full and recently changed. It feels as if something electrical has malfunctioned with something remaining engaged creating the whining noise but as eaerlier stated, once restarted it seems to reset everything and drivng is back to routine.
The last time I experienced this the gearbox governor gear (which are usually made of plastic had lost its drive teeth. Did you notice if the speedo still worked.

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.

Check your fluid level first. Next, you may want to get a filter job on it....but try checking your fluid level first with engine temp at normal...or have been running for at least 5 to 10 minutes. Sounds as though you have low fluid.

check and replace filter and fluids just like oil it tends to burn up and blacking and needs to be changed and flushed checking your tranny fluid it should be a red color not a dark red or with a black tint
