On the 94 it's on the starter, they changed it in 90 iirc? But if it starts by slamming the gear selector into park I'd check my neutral start switch. You might be shaking something else in the steering column too.
The starter can be hard to pull, if you take it out you might want to replace it.

I finally got it to start with jumpers and when I run the engine at idle everything seems fine. when I rev it up I start getting interior lights changing brightness wildly if they are on and the air suspension light in the dash lights up and then goes out randomly and the battery charging symbol lights up and the goes out and the anti-lock brake symbol flashes. Note that I had charged the battery for several hours before I tried starting it with jumpers with no success. I can't see a bad battery causing these symptoms. As for the starter solenoid...now where is the starter? I don't have a lift, so can't get under the car to try to find it. Can the solenoid be reached from the top? Would like to clip on a remote starter switch if I can.

But it looks to me like you need to crawl under the car. I haven't had my 97 for a while and just don't remember.
You've got interesting problems though. I'd at least start by going to a parts store and having them do an electrical test (free).

After horrible service at a Lincoln dealer,I've decided to tackle this myself. The recliner (back) part of my driver seat does not work.When I push the button I hear something but it doesn't move.The bottom does move,no issue with that part.Anybody have any ideas?2007 LINCOLN TOWN CAR SIG.LIMITED,34600 MILES.Thanks.

Sometimes the switch contact points become corrorded & working the switch several times scrapes the corrosion away. Hopefully!

Hi. Thanks. I had a thought about the switch and tried to jiggle it,move it and otherwise just see if I could get it to do something.Didn't work.I brought it to the dealer and 371 dollars later it's the seat actuator.It's sitting at that dealer as I write this waiting for the part to come in to fix it. This is the one thing I don't think I've ever had happen to any of my Lincolns.

If you are sure that the connections are clean and tight, then more than likely it is the ballast.
