1994 Ford Crown Vic brake shifter interlock Safety switch

The car had a brake line rusted thru from the front to the back rear wheels, had it replaced at the shop, all worked fine that day, parked the unit for a couple of days, and went to move it and the interlock will not let me move the shifter now no matter how hard I press on the brake petal.
I need to know how to release the interlock so that I can move the unit and return it to the shop, towing bill will be about $150.00 otherwise
Thanks

You should be able to remove the wiring from the switch and jump it to allow the transmission to be shifted. Though this tow bill should belong to the brake shop and be thier responcibility not yours.
I would demand they get the vehicle picked up and repairs be made.
Good Luck

If it's a rusty brake line that's leaking you'd best replace the whole brake line system (all 4 wheels) for your safety. Fuel lines have the same problem. These are made out of steel and rust fast due
to calcium chloride used on the roads in winter.
Unless you're familiar with routing and installing connectors on these lines I suggest you let a pro do the job. It ain't as easy as it looks.

Can I bleed my 94 Crown Vic brakes with out special equipment? I have bled several older brake systems on my vehicles without ABS systems in the past. Thanks Jim


I have done the brakes many times on my own 1994 Vic and never had a problem. Just start at the farthest brake in back and work your way forward. The drivers side front is the shortest line. If you do have any problems, I use a Vacuum handheld bleeder pump.

They make it nice because the 4 ounce cup that comes with it holds enough discharged fluid that you get very little spill, if any at all. You can gravity bleed them too.

Frozen shift gear


sounds like you are unable to take out of park- if so there is an interlock in the console that prevents you from putting it in gear unless you have foot on brake. you may need to replace switch at brake pedal or the interlock itself. in the mean time there should be a small round cover on top of the console about 3/8 dia, take a small screwdriver and remove, then press down on lever on the inside while depressing brake, this should get you going for now

1994 Nissan Altima shifter will not shift out of park


The shift interlock can be malfunction.

Have someone check the brake light as you press on the brake.

If the brake light DOES NOT come on then you can start


checking for fuse

test the brake switch.connector

and brake switch.


When the safety circuit does not see the brake being apply then it shifter will remain lock.
