SOURCE: The gear selector will not shift from park i've been told that one of the linkages is broken

The gear shifter has a switch inside of it. The shifter has to be replaced.

SOURCE: Shifts hard from park to drive and engine moves

That would be the transmission and motor mounts. Take it to a auto repair facility.

SOURCE: gear shift won't move out of park

safety switch on brake pedal. common cause is a wire breaking off. there are 1 to 2 wires going to this switch. It is located on the brake pedal bracket above the foot pad.

SOURCE: My 97 F250 wont shift out of park? Engine starts,

most likely your brake switch is out. If you had a scanner you would be able to see if the computer see's you pressing on the pedal. Or if you know how to test you could check to see if it switches ( completes the circuit ).

JUST PURCHASE 2000 MUSTANG 2 DAYS AGO. NOW WILL NOT SHIFT OUT PARK. I ASK A PERSON THEIR ..HE SAID TURN THE KEY HALF WAY & THE SHIFTER WENT INTO NERUTAL & CAR STARTED..WHAT COULD BE THE PROBLEM?


Brake switch, shift interlock solenoid or bad transmission range selector. Shift interlock won't let you shift out of park unless your foot is on the brake. So brake pedal starts the cycle. Next, the vehicle has to be in either park or neutral. So power flows from the brake switch through the transmission range selector which then sends power to the shift interlock solenoid which moves a pin out of the way, allowing you to shift out of park.

The button the gear selector of my 2000 Jeep Cherokee won't push in so that I can move gear selector from park to reverse


Make sure your brake lights are working, the shift interlock may not be getting signal from the brake light switch to release the shift lever. If they are working, the problem may be the shift interlock switch.

Ford mustang was making a whine/ rattling noise while doing 20-60 mph then after driving 20 minutes she died at a stop sign, would start up fine in park, but died when we tried to shift,what is wrong


Automatic or stick ?
If its an automatic, it could be something in the torque converter or transmission. The torque converter clutch could be stuck.

Mustang 89 4 cyl 2.3 l engine starts on parking dies out on drive


if the nuetral safety was a problem the car would not start at all, sounds like you have a defective engine wiring harness, this is the most common cause of this i have seen while working for Ford.

'00 Mercury Cougar Wont get out of Park. gear shifter is stuck


sounds like your brake/shift interlock solenoid is not releasing.
Your owner manual will tell you how to bypass in emergency.
Check your fuse first. fuse panel on instrument panel.

Please rate as fixed if this helps.

Fuse 23 - 1 5 amp
Fuse 34 - 7 1/2 amp

check enigne light not related.
----------------------------------------------------

The selector lever lock can be moved mechanically out of position ”P" when for example the battery is disconnected or completely discharged.
Using a ball point pen or similar item as an unlocking lever, push forward and hold in position.

Move the selector lever out of position "P".

NOTE: If the selector lever is moved back to ”P" it is re-locked.
