Question Push button shifter

My floor shifter on my '06 SEL is all gunky. I have a replacement ready to install but I'm also thinking of push button shifting and a custom console one day. Has anyone ever tested a Lincoln MKC 17 push button shifter in a Taurus? Are the electronics compatible?

It wont work...... On your Taurus moving the shifter operates a cable that goes down to the tranny and operates a shaft that goes into the tranny and also operates the TRS/MVLP switch that tells the PCM what gear is selected. Lincoln shifter is 100% electronic, and lincold also uses an entirely different tranny.

Are you sure you have an 06 with a Duratec? 05 was the last year for the 3.0 24V DOHC Duratec in the G4 taurus. All 06 and the few 07 that were produced came with the Vulcan only.
