SOURCE: My 2003 Mercury Mountaineer Gear Shift is stuck.

See if u have brake lights. This is what energizes the shifter solenoid. There are 2 fuses u can check both are in the under dash fuse panel. Fuse 23 (15amp) and fuse 26 (7.5amp).
To get it out of park turn igntion switch on stopping just short of engerizing the electronics then u should be able to get it out of park and into neutral.

SOURCE: My 2002 Mercury Sable will not shift into gear,

Wasn't there a recall for the sensor/part that keeps the gear shift from moving when your foot is not on the brake? Did you ever take your car back to have this replaced?

Mercury sable gear shiftier jammed in park


Found this for a '93
Check that the brake lights work. The neutral park solenoid needs to see an input from the brake light switch before it allows the transmission to be taken out of park. If the brake lights don't work check the switch and fuses. If not the solenoid that allows the shift linkage out of park may have failed. Nearly every car has a mechanical override to allow the transmission to be shifted out of Park.

And this for a 2002
More than likely the BOO (brake on/off) switch located on the brake pedal, or it's connector is the problem. Check to see if the brake lights are working. If not, you can disconnect the BOO switch and jump the wires together. If the brake lights come on then, it should shift out of park.

So your's should be the same.

Where is the neutral safety switch on a 1997 mercury sable?


It is part of/incorporated into the transmission range selector switch. The switch is under the hood on the transmission where the shift cable connects to the shift post. See picture

99 sable won't start, replaced battery,starter,alternator, but still wont even crank. code reader also said map sensor so it was reset worked for alittle but now nothing


If the car does not have a security system, I would check for voltage at the starter from the battery and from the key switch.
The power from the key switch goes thru the neutral safety switch before getting to the starter.

Yesterday went to town put my 2001 mercury sable in park and could not get it back in gear, after fighting with it for several mins. It went in gear, went to save alot did the same thing, turned ignition...


Brake Shift interlock system problem probably . This is a safety system that will not let you move the gear selector from park ,unless your foot is pressing on the brake pedal . Electrically controlled locking solenoid , wiring , brake switch used to control this .

I cannot shift my 98 Sable out of park into a gear after it starts, if I turn the engine off then turn the key to on (not engaging the starter) the gear shift can be moved to neutral then the engine starts...


Sounds like a problem with the brake light switch. Do the brake lights work? It is a problem with the shift interlock system. It is controlled by the brake light switch on the brake pedal bracket.
