Having problems with your 1998 Lincoln Town Car ?
How do I get my ignition unlocked so I can turn my key
Your steering wheel lock may have your ignition lock cylinder in a bind. Try to move the steering wheel. If it moved back and forth a couple inches freely, this is not your problem. If it does not move freely, then turn it with moderate force to "feel" where the lock pin is. It will move slightly in both directions. Move the wheel so it is in the center of this small amount of travel and turn the key. It should turn now. If this does not work, then you may have to have your steering column disassembled to have the lock cylinder replaced.
