Question about 1993 Ford Festiva
I apply the brake and try to push in the button on the shift handle, it will not push in to allow me t shift into gear. I heard there might be a solinoid in the shift console might be bad. any ideas of what I can check.thank you!
Yes the part your referring to is called a brake shift interlock.if the solenoid has failed or is not getting voltage from the brake pedal switch than it will not allow you to shift from park.if you have your center console out, you can unplug the BSI solenoid and check for source voltage present while applying the brake pedal (ignition key on)if you have source voltage present and nothing from the solenoid than i would call it a bad solenoid
