Lincoln Towncar won't start
When the theft light blinks fast when trying to start the car, check if this occurs; if yes, then the car is in theft mode. I do strongly believe the next step is to program the keys. If the PCM was bad, the light would be steady when trying to start which indicates the PATS system is working correctly.

I have a 2001 Lincoln
If it only does it when it sat a day or so, I would
lean toward fuel pump issues
That is a thin line to come back here & have to support
I would be up on my spark plugs,cleaning maf sensor, replacing
O2 Sensors etc,only when they are due, based on time & mileage
eg: get the basics out of the way first.
An old battery can do that also
You say cranks fine after initial crank
Some people refer to cranking ,as meaning a no start
condition. Cranking has little to do with starting
The more I read your question the similar it is to others
You don't have a problem with the car starting at all
You have a problem with the starter turning over the engine
Help me out here

Not backing up if car
Not getting past 45mph, is almost a damaged exhaust converter,
that has broken down inside & is clogged
That should not happen in ten years,so you have had misfires
or rich fuel conditions over the years, that ruined it
Next would be a totally bocked gas filter
Not as likely, if it were changed ever 3 to 5 years, it should be okey
The transmissiom issues I will only say due to having once owned
a trans shop & the 10 years on the car.
Your are most likely only going to fix that, by pulling it out & rebuilding it
Because no one ever changes trans & include power steering fluid,
every 3 years & not over 30,000 miles
Not changing trans fluid is a death sentence

Door lights stays on after door is closed
What you need to do first is to control the light from the switch to see if it is set to off or door,if it is door,it might not go off immediately until you start the car.If it is set on off then there might be an electrical problem and you might have to get an expert to fix it for you.

How does power get to
There is a fuel pump relay and a fuse...In the under-hood fuse box, fuse #22 (20 amp) powers the fuel pump relay. The best method of ensuring the fuel pump is getting proper voltage is testing for power at the intertia switch (fuel cut-off in case of an accident). It is on the driver's side of the trunk behind the liner. Ground a test light and have a assistant cycle the key. It should be powered for about 3-5 seconds initially after the key is cycled to the start position.
I hope this helps.

I have a 2001 Lincolon
it sounds like the track that is attached to the widow that the motor controls has come loose from the window payne. You will need to get adhesive from a parts supplier and reattach it.

My transmission seems to hesitate
Does this happen with the overdrive off or on? If it happens with the overdrive on, then suggest you try it without the overdrive and see if your indications change. The overdrive normally starts to operate in that range. While both are transmission problems the overdrive isn't as hard to repair.
