I have a 2016 Lincoln mkz - the electronic shift system -

Customer Question

I have a 2016 Lincoln mkz - the electronic shift system - developed a fault and does not let me shift gears - at first the drive button blinked along with the engine start button but nothing happened and I could not start the engine - roadside assistance got it to park and I could start the engine but then was unable to get it into gear. The manual override also failed as a means to shift gears. It was eventually towed to a closed dealership ... Have you heard of this problem? What is the fix?

I have seen one other with similar symptoms and it ended up being a tcm issue, But there is not a common issue yet..
