    You could have a bad chip but i think you have a bad Powertrain Control Module (PCM)
    If you have another 1999 to 2001 lincoln towncar you can remove that and you will also have to remove the key lock from that car.
    That key lock will only react to that pcm.

    YOu will need the pcm only and keep the same key
    But you will need to go to a dealer to reprogram the computer

    Download this PDF:
    http://www.fordservicecontent.com/Fo.../99towog1e.pdf

    go to page 123 RESETTING THE FUEL PUMP SHUT-OFF SWITCH

    You want to make sure all the fuses that would keep the car from running are OK.
    go to page 126 Check all fuses & make sure they are good.
    go to page 128 Check all fuses & make sure they are good.
    Relay 1 Fuel Pump Relay swap with Relay #2
    Relay 3 PCM Power Relay swap with Relay #4 or #5

    If none of this corrects your problem, go to the Lincoln forum:

    Register and post your problem and what you have done to isolate it.

    Good Luck!

    Hi, I am in France and have all NGS scanner for you . call me at 00.33.1.46.51.54.66 and I will solve your problem . I am pretty sure it's an electrical problem that can come from the fuse box in the engine compartment . check and remove all of its (especialy the black one that control the pcm) and grease it with wd40 . let me know ...

    In a 99 t/c, the key has a coded chip in the big black plastic part, and the corresponding codes are stored in the actual instrument cluster, (speedo, fuel, etc) any fuses that power the instrument cluster may cause an issue.

    It's odd, but the ECM has almost nothing to do with sensing the key. Figured that out the hard way replacing the cluster due to a bad fuel gauge...




    edit: I might be thinking of a '98 actually. Been too long.
