Strutmasters sells an aftermarket trunk latch that will install in place of the old pull down motor/latch assembly. it's cheap and inexpensive to do. I just ordered one for my 1992 Lincoln Town Car.
im sorry to say this but it sounds like the pull down moter went out. i have had a few people "slam" my trunk on my mark 7 and cause the same damage. "it closes & locks but dont sit all the way down." if that is the situation that you have, it's the part on the body of the car. it has a plug ( elect. ) they were made of plastic so get a "new" part. it is also best not to use a junkyard part, simply because you cant tell if it has been "slam" damadged! with a little patiance its not too hard to replace. it took me a few hrs to change mine out.
This is not an answer so much as a question: Can the latch be replaced with a non-moveable, fixed one from say a 92 Marquis or Crown Victoria?
I simply removed the latch and motor assembly from the trunk, took the latch and motor assembly apart, set the worm screw so the latch was in the seated position, put the motor and latch assembly back together, reinstalled the motor and latch assembly in the trunk leaving the motor unplugged, and then isolated the electrical connection with a small plastic bag and tape and tucked it in under the carpet.
The power trunk lid has to be activated by pushing the trunk release button on the remote twice. to close the trunk,, do like wise.
on the trunk latch theirs a little clip, its stuck down and should be up
I have the same problem, anyone ANYONE !>!

On a 2000 Lincoln Town Car : The fuel pump inertia switch is located in the trunk It is mounted on a bracket by the drivers side trunk lid hinge
The 2003 Lincoln Town Car factory amplifier is located in the trunk. The factory installed amplifier will be on the dividing wall between the back seat and the trunk.
In trunk on driver side next to trunk hinge.
I believe the fuel pump shut off switch ( inertia switch ) is in the trunk , on the drivers side of the trunk , behind the trunk liner ( there would be an access hole ) on a 2003 Lincoln Town Car
