Your trans will not come out of park until the brake pedal is depressed and the brake light switch activated, you most likely have an issue switch or the wiring to it, 1st thing to do is see if the brake lights work, if not jumper the switch at the brake pedal and see if the lights work, if they do, and it will still not come out of park there is a problem with the release solenoid on top of the steering column, you will have to drop the column to service that solenoid, but most often the issue is with the brake light circuit, either the switch or the connector to it..

Look at the swith on the brake pedal, it shoud have two green wires on it. Make sure it is not melted or the wire is broken. If it is damaged you can connect the 2 wires together to get it into gear, but this should be temporary as it bypasses the neutral safety switch.

Gear shift stick is loose from the steering column. It will not shift out of park. What do I need to look to repair?

It has a safety system that keeps it locked in Park unless your foot is on the brake. If the brake lever switch is broke or out of place it will not shift. Someone could have bent the parts when it did not unlock. Check rear brakelights to see if you get it to light when a foot is on brakepedal.

93 lincoln continental stuck in park

This is a problem with the Interlock switch. Under the dash you will see the Brake pedal lever and it will have a switch on it. If this switch is hit by the drivers' feet it can be moved or broken. You can verify this problem by looking for the Brakelights to work when the pedal is pressed. If NO brakelights, the switch is the problem.

The cars are made that before allowing you to shift into gear, your foot must be on the brake. If the signal does not work on the Brake pedal, the car will not go into gear.

Car stuck in park

brake lights?? if you do not have brake lights then you need to fix them in order to shift out of park. use a test light and test for power at both wires on the brake switch with the brake pressed. If you only have power on one wire then change the switch, if you have no power change the fuse.

Stuck in park

manually move the brake switch you installed and have someone check if its comes on at the back...if not ..test for voltage at LG/RD wire- both terminal and wire- if no voltage = Fuse #10/ 20A , #20/ 7.5A, #22/ 20A at the CJB, if good test for voltage at the sockets- both terminal and wire- ......if you get BRAKE lights and still can't move the shift lever... look on the steering column at the SHIFT LOCK ACTUATOR and test that or replace it....hope this helps you..GL

Can't get 1993 Linclon Towncar out of park


  1. Remove the instrument panel cover below the steering column, then remove the steering column shrouds to gain access to the brake transmission shift interlock (BTSI) solenoid. The solenoid is part of the interlock cable assembly.
  2. Disconnect the wire connector from the rear of the BTSI solenoid.
  3. Insert the ignition key and turn it to the ON position.
  4. With the brakes applied, try moving the shifter out of the PARK position.
    • If the lever now moves freely in and out of PARK, perform the Circuit Test below.
    • If the shift lever still does not move from the PARK position, remove the BTSI solenoid from the shift lever assembly. If the shift lever now moves freely in and out of the park position, the BTSI solenoid is faulty and the interlock cable must be replaced. If the shift lever still does not move from the park position, the problem is in the shift lever assembly or the ignition interlock cassette
