Question about Lincoln Cars & Trucks
Did you check the fuses with a 12V test light? As for the seat, the gear driveshaft usually strips out and needs replacing. Sometime readjusting will work

Why don't you take a peek under the dash, around the brake pedal? Maybe
it's just a loose connection. If you don't find anything obvious then
you need to get a copy of the wiring diagram for the car.
If I dont mistake, the license plate lights and tailights are both on the same harness so that may be a bulb due to a surge with your issue.
Was it just your cluster lights only that went out or was it the whole dash, such as radio and HVAC control lights as well? Try using a voltmeter on the tail/brake light plugs when the brake is pressed and see if you get any readings, while the plugs are out check the bulbs just in case. a bad ground or electrical surge can casue these kind of issues, but check these things first and let us know, I will check the factory electrical manual for you on those items to be sure.
Keep us updated.

Sounds like either your wiring from the Light switch is bad or the Light switch itself is bad. Check with your Owners manual to see if the "Parking lights" have a separate fuse.
Your tail and License plate lights would light with either the Headlights or the "Parking" light selected at the switch as would the front parking lights. If all lights except the headlights are out, your problem is closer to the light switch than at the mounting points of each Parking light or License plate light.
This is one case where you will not know if a dead wire off of the switch is dead because of a bad switch or a bad wire. You would have to detach the harness at the switch, test the wire bundle or jump the switch with power to see how it distributes power through the Harness. It will take a lot of time to rule out the switch. It may be cheaper to replace the switch and then work from there.
