My 1999 lincoln Continental wont shift out of "PARK"


Is the vehicle parked on an incline? The parking pin may be slightly jammed. If you can VERY CAREFULLY nudge the vehicle up the hill an inch or two, using another vehicle, the shift lever may free itself.
If the vehicle is parked on level ground, suspect the LOCKING SOLENOID for the shift lever.
Less likely, the parking pin may be jammed (inside the transmission), or the shift lever linkage may have become damaged.

2003 aviator won't go into gear


When you say the vehicle "won't go into gear," do you mean you cannot move the lever out of PARK, or do you mean that when you move the lever out of PARK the transmission will not engage?
If the lever will not move out of PARK, check your BRAKE LIGHT fuse, your BRAKE LIGHT switch, and the SOLENOID at the shift mechanism.
If your lever moves out of PARK easily (too easily), it is possible that your shift linkage has broken or come loose.
If your lever moves out of PARK normally but the transmission does not engage, it's time to have the car towed to the transmission repair shop.

What fuse on 1998 Lincoln Towncar controls breaks and gear


Since you only mentioned drive, I'm going to presume you meant you can't shift into any gear, Is this correct? Normally, I would say this isn't an electrical issue, it's mechanical, either something in the shift column or the shift linkage is broken or come loose so I browsed the fuses in my owner's manual and you can check these fuses: fuse #8 (10A) - Shift Lock, Speed Control, fuse #14 (7.5A) - Transmission Control Switch, fuse #10 (20A) - Brake Pedal Position, Brake Pressure Switch. If you can't shift out of Park, turn key just enough to unlock steering wheel (not turn on dash lights) and see if shift lever moves. If so, then shift into Neutral and start car.

My car won't start unless i move the shift back and forth


There is a safety switch that is made when the shift lever is in Park. When there is play in the lever it won't make the switch. Follow the linkage of the lever to where you find the switch. There will be a way to adjust the play out of it.

Can't get 1993 Linclon Towncar out of park


SHIFTER LOCKED IN PLACE

  1. Remove the instrument panel cover below the steering column, then remove the steering column shrouds to gain access to the brake transmission shift interlock (BTSI) solenoid. The solenoid is part of the interlock cable assembly.
  2. Disconnect the wire connector from the rear of the BTSI solenoid.
  3. Insert the ignition key and turn it to the ON position.
  4. With the brakes applied, try moving the shifter out of the PARK position.
    • If the lever now moves freely in and out of PARK, perform the Circuit Test below.
    • If the shift lever still does not move from the PARK position, remove the BTSI solenoid from the shift lever assembly. If the shift lever now moves freely in and out of the park position, the BTSI solenoid is faulty and the interlock cable must be replaced. If the shift lever still does not move from the park position, the problem is in the shift lever assembly or the ignition interlock cassette
