Rear brakelights and turn signals do not work


The turn signal and brake lights are controlled by the turn signal switch.
You did not mention parking lights so I will assume they work.

Could be a faulty turn signal switch or a wiring problem between the dash and the rear of the van.
Do the hazard flashers work on all four corners ?

Gearshift wont come out of park and no brakelights.


It sounds like your brake switch has gone bad. It is under the brake pedal. When you push your brake pedal down, the switch is pressed, turning on your brake lights, and telling your computer that the brakes are on. When these go bad, your brake lights will not work, and your car will not shift out of park. Try looking under your dask near the brake pedal with a flashlight, try locating the brake light switch, and inspect the wires. You can probably find a diagram of this switch on google.
I hope this helps

Gear Lever stuck in park??


this is because there is a switch on the brake pedal that is connected to a solinoid that lock the gear selector in park .
you need to A : check the switch on the brake pedal is working this may only need to adjust the distance between the pedal stop and the pedal its self.
B: The solinoid on the gearbox should click when the switch on the brake pedal is closed or opened
if not the solinoid on the gear box could be sticking or could be faulty

hope this helps
