SOURCE: How can I put car in neutral if battery is dead?

What you have is a safety switch, wich is why when the car is running you need to step on the brake to release the shifter from park. the switch is electric, and therefore isn't working because your battery is dead. Now, for the good news. Next to your shifter there should be a little plug, or a slot about the size of your door lock key hole. Insert your key into the slot, press down lightly, and then you can take the car out of park. That is called your "shift lock release"
Good luck!

SOURCE: Neutral with a dead battery

There is an override lever on the shift lever, inside the center console. Find the access panel next to the driver's seat; it's about 1.5" high by 4.25" wide, under the top edge accent trim. Carefully pry out the panel, then use a screwdriver to push the white plastic override up toward the roof of the vehicle. You can then move the shift lever out of Park.

SOURCE: 1998 lincoln navigator won't go in park. still

Sounds like you either broke your inhibitor switch, or possibly damaged your parking pawl in the transmission.

Return to the dealership.

How do I put my Lincoln navigator into reverse if my car won't start?

is the battery totally dead if it is you will not be able to take it out of park because you need electric power. if you have power then you should be able to move the shift selector if you hold on the brake and turn on the key. but if just want to move it u will need to put in neutral.

I have 1999 lincoln navigator and I stopped to get gas and car did not start back up,had battery charged and 5 miles later dead. So I changed altinator to new one made it home. The next morning truck is...

Sounds as though your battery is not capable of taking
a charge & is in need of replacement.

Was the old alternator tested BEFORE you replaced it

You learn nothing by just replacing things,correct diagnoses
or on a guess

When you say what is that

There a a dozen things that could it be

Battery Cable issues
Electrical issues such as a bad ignition switch

It starts but quits,so you have an open circuit somewhere

Can not even guess at that, need to see a wiring diagram
after experiencing the problem first hand
