Th car requires you to push the brake pedal down in order to unlock the column shifter - there's a pressure switch on the brake pedal arm that is closed when you push the pedal down. It's likely that this switch has become defective. Change that and you should be back in business.

The linkage are hooked up but the car still want go into park,a 2000 Taurus


Do you have floor console shifter ?
Shift Interlock System A brake/shifter interlock system consists of the following:
  • ignition switch (11572)
  • brake pedal stoplight switch (13480)
  • brake shift interlock module
  • brake shift interlock solenoid assembly (attached to key interlock assembly)
  • necessary wiring
On floor-shift vehicles, the ignition/shifter interlock cable (3F719):
  • locks the floor shift transaxle range selector lever in the PARK position when the ignition switch is in the LOCK position.
  • requires the floor shift transaxle range selector lever to be in the PARK position to turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position.

Why my truck will not go into park


If it is a column shift there is a plastic or metal shift thingy behind the dash. If it is loose you could have this problem. Also, you need to pull the shifter to you to get over the shift thing to get to the park position. Maybe it's called it a comb?

I have a 01 ford taurus whit p0705 transmission code and i have no idea what this mean


Code P0705 - Transmisson Range Sensor Circuit (PRNDL Input)
The transmission range switch detects the selector lever position and sends a signal to the TCM.

The park/neutral position (PNP) switch includes a transmission range switch. The transmission range switch detects the selector lever position when the shift lever is in the N or P shift position and sends a signal to the Transmission Control Module (TCM).

Symptoms
- Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

Possible causes
- Open or short park/neutral position switch circuit
- Poor park/neutral position switch circuit connection
- Misadjusted park/neutral position switch
- Park/neutral position switch may be faulty

Keep us updated (remember to rate thsi answer).

We have a 1995 Ford Taurus sedan and sometimes in order to start it we have to put it in neutral. There seems to be some give in the gear shift when you put it in drive if you're not careful you can...


This can be a dangerous issue. If the gear shift is that sensitive a simple bump could cause the transmission to shift out or into a gear. At higher speeds this could be very dangerous. I suggest you take the car into a transmission shop to have them diagnose the problem. It may be as simple as a linkage adjustment. Err on the side of safety.

1995 Taurus wagon not going into park/1st


The shift cable comes under the dash and attaches to a lever at the bottom of the steering column. There a two bolts that hold the lever to the mechanism at the column under the dash, those bolts are probably loose. Pretty common, stick you head under the column with a flash light and wiggle the shift lever and you should be able to see what I am talking about.
