To better assist you please tell me if your model is a New Yorker 5th Avenue or New Yorker Salon. Also your engine size in liter.
First try checking for codes as below.
Check Engine Light Diagnostic Mode
1. Start engine (if possible). Move transmission shift lever through all positions, ending in Park. Turn A/C switch on, then off (if equipped).
2. Turn engine off. Without starting engine again, turn ignition on, off, on, off and on. Record 2-digit fault codes as displayed by flashing CHECK ENGINE light.
3. For example, Code 23 is displayed as flash, flash, 4-second pause, flash, flash, flash. After a slightly longer pause, other codes stored are displayed in numerical order.
4. When CHECK ENGINE light begins to flash fault codes, it cannot be stopped. If you lose count, it will be necessary to start over. Code 55 indicates end of fault code display.
5. Refer to FAULT CODES to translate trouble code number to a system fault description (DRB-II display). Once trouble area is identified, refer to NO START TEST 1A (NS-1A) or DRIVEABILITY TEST 1B (DR-1B) trouble shooting chart to diagnose problem. Use trouble shooting chart titles to find appropriate chart.
6. As an example, a 3.0L engine starts and runs, but has a driveability problem. CHECK ENGINE light indicates a Code 14. Refer to FAULT CODES to translate trouble code number to a system fault description (DRB-II display).
7. When system fault description (DRB-II display) is obtained, refer to DR-1B: DRB-II FAULT MESSAGES since vehicle has a driveability problem. Select fault message and corresponding test from table and proceed to appropriate chart.
Next to better understand you, when you turn the key does the engine crank or turn over or nothing happens?
