98 is the first year the Town Car used the PATS (passive anti theft system), the powertrain control module needs to be programmed to accept any new transponder key. There is a diagnostic procedure that needs to be carried out to have it accept a new key. You would have to check with any locksmith shop if they can do it, or take it back to the dealership.

Best to go to a Ford or Lincoln dealer to get it done correctly the first time - a little more $s but they have the capability to program new FORD / LINCOLN "blanks" properly.
