Question about 2000 Ford Focus
About a week ago I could not get it out of park, I found the brake light fuse was blown. now the high mount no longer works, and when I'm in drive the lower brake lights start to flicker and stay on and my blinkers don't work after driving for about half an hour. could this be a short somewhere?
Could be a short but could also be a bad ground at one of the lights!

Had this problem myself. Try replacing your brake light switch, they are not real expensive and can be changed in a matter of mineuts. It is located by following your brake pedal all the way up to the top, when you get there , there id a switch that when you push down on the brake it releases the button to put you brake lights on and when you take your foot off the brake itallows the switch to go back.

It sounds like the shifter lock out solenoid has gone bad.It is a solenoid that releases the shifter when you push the brake pedal.

There will be a switch on the the brake pedal. Gently move it back and forth. If the lights stay on this will have to be replaced. Then replace the third brake light bulb.
