I have also had the same problem with my navigator and the culprit turned out to be a fuse... a 5 amp fuse that is for a relay... if you get a fuse tester and check your fuses on the inside fuse box... It should be a 5 amp fuse and i wanna say its in the middle row

My Lincoln Navigator won't shift out of park

The shift interlock system works off of the stoplight switch. Check to see if your stop or brake lights are working. If they aren't it may be a fuse, stoplight switch, or the wires going to the switch. It is not uncommon for the wires to the switch break right near the connector or wear through where they rub on a metal bracket and blow the fuse. Sometimes if you unlock the column without turning on the ignition it will come out of park. Be careful! If your brake lights don't work, put on your hazard flashers while you drive to your nearest repair shop.

2003 Ford escape fuse blows in and stuck in park Changed brake pedal switch. But fuse still blows

Suspect short in electrical wiring. If repairs have been performed recently check in those areas first. Remove fuse and connect meter. Have someone observe meter while harness near rear light fixtures are flexed. Check for wiring near exhaust. Check wiring at hatch if lights are installed in rear gate. Possible short in harness.

No joy start disconnecting cable connections see wiring diagram.

Hope this helps.

My patriot is stuck in park, get it out of park no break lights, where is the brake light fuse, replaced the brake switch, lasted a week

no year car.
park lockout is law here in usa
the brake lamps most work
as must the brake lamp switch
and the fuse (if any ) must be good
2008 all the details here changed, but not
the law nor how brake lamps must work

step on brake pedal
do they glow in there rear?

on newer cars, the brake switch is 3 switches inside
and 1 can fail and not others.
one to lamps(rear)
one to park lock
one to cruise control cut outs.

this take a voltmeter to find
or shot gun new switch.
warning2,some witches need calibration
why not read the service manual on that.

Stuck in park while truck is still running 1998 Lincoln Navigator

Are your brake lights working?
If not, replace the fuse. Still not working? Replace the brake light switch. (Your brake light switch also releases the lock for the gear shift).
If your brake lights are working, are you hearing a soft "click" at the gear shift when you depress the brake? If not, check the lock solenoid at the gear shift lever.
There is also a slight possibility that your park pin is jammed. If you're parked on a hill, it's likely. Have someone push the car back and forth as you try to take it out of park... JUST DON'T RUN THEM OVER. :)

2003 impala keeps blowing rear parking lamp fuse

Same issue also when the fuse blows i looks my electric seat controls. I found the problem was underneath the hood underneath both the fuse boxes it was a power wire pinched under a plate that holds the fuse boxes on. This wire probably wore through after 140,000 miles of rubbing and being pinched. tell me if it works for you

My 02' mdx won't come out of park, keep blowing a 20 amp fuse. This fuse controls the Cruise, break lights, memory seat, horn and linkage. I have to manually delink. I have unhooked the comand...

Here is an idea, when do you blow the fuse key on, key on engine running, key on engine running hitting the break pedal? Try and get the key on without blowing fuse if possible, then one at a time try those circuit loads ie: horn, brake pedal and so on, if you isolate which load is pulling to many amps(blowing fuse) unplug that load itself, then restart testing, see if fuse stays ok. You can also substitue the fuse with a circuit breaker and unplug each load until click(of breaker) stops.

03 navigator gear shift gets stuck in the parked postion and wont shift to drive what's wrong?

The switch on the brake master cylinder is FAMOUS for shorting out. Unplug it and find the blown fuse. In the fuse box under the hood, fuse 1.5 Your truck may be under a recall for that switch, call the dealer with your VIN number and see if it qualifies.
