Hello and welcome to just answer and allowing me to assist you. If your stuck in park you can over ride that by pushing in the shift over ride buton that is close to the shiftier under a little cover you can flip up with a small screw driver. Then you will be able to take it to a shop. Hope this helps and if you require further assistance I'll be happy to do so. What model of Lincoln is it?

look in the fuse block under the driver's side of the dash and check all fuses.
