Park neutral safety switch could be bad , also the shift interlock safety system .
Shift Interlock System A brake/shifter interlock system consists of the following:
  • ignition switch (11572)
  • brake pedal stoplight switch (13480)
  • brake shift interlock module
  • brake shift interlock solenoid assembly (attached to key interlock assembly)
  • necessary wiring
On floor-shift vehicles, the ignition/shifter interlock cable (3F719):
  • locks the floor shift transaxle range selector lever in the PARK position when the ignition switch is in the LOCK position.
  • requires the floor shift transaxle range selector lever to be in the PARK position to turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position.
Condition Possible Source Action
  • Shift Interlock System Does Not Release or Lock Properly
  • Circuitry open/shorted.
  • Blown fuse.

You have a shift interlock problem . What kind of vehicle ? a mercury what ?
Shift Interlock System
The shift interlock system prevents shifting from PARK unless the brake pedal is depressed. The shift interlock system consists of a shift lock actuator mounted on the selector lever. If the ignition switch is in the RUN position, the shift lock actuator is disabled when the brake pedal is depressed.
If the selector lever will not move out of PARK with the key in the ON position and the brake pedal depressed, it will need to be unlocked manually.
Do the brake lights work ?
Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage; refer to the following chart:

What problems will I hav wit a bad ignition switch on my ford 500


Several, like failing to activate the starter or failing to shut off the Ignition completely when the engine is off. Just depends on which terminal is the worst.

Now there is an Interlock switch which links the shift cable, Ignition switch and brakes for safety. Sometimes this switch, the Interlock, will make it impossible to use the starter when the Ignition key is turned to the start position.

The Interlock switch is located on the brake pedal lever under the dash. It often gets dislodged or broken by the Drivers' feet. Depending on your symptoms, the Interlock switch could well be the cause of your problems.

Please rate my info.

Check under the dash at your Brake pedal interlock switch. It is timed with the gearshift Interlock and Ignition switch. This switch usually gets hit by feet and dislodged or broken. When you shift out of Park, the switch is toggling to a broken piece and shorting out.

The brake interlock switch is at the top half of the pedal lever. The other part of the Interlock uses a rod or cable in the steering column Ignition switch and mates with the shifting mechanism.

Can't move shifter out of Park after starting engine on my 2000 Taurus. To drive the car, I have to stop the engine, turn the key back slightly, then switch to Neutral and restart the engine....


Hello, You are having problems with the Interlock controls. There is an Electric switch at the top of the Brake pedal lever that makes the car stay in Park UNTIL THE BRAKE PEDAL IS PRESSED. Because you are not in Alignment with the switches, you are using Neutral instead.

The most likely culprit is the switch I mentioned under the dash. Many people have broken it or knocked it off the holder. The second issue is the Alignment of the Ignition switch Interlock rod or cable. This part is raised or lowered by the Ignition switch and when you turn the Ignition switch, the rod moves. The part that the rod moves is an Interlock switch.

The Interlock switch can also free up your shifter. Also, if the Trigger on the shift for the console is not properly aligned, you will have similar release problems. It is another Interlock problem.

I have a 1999 Ford Escort and this morning could not get the silly thing to shift out of park. The release button on the shifter will not push in to move the shifter into drive or any other gear


These cars have a shift interlock switch that prevents the car from being shifted out of park if you don't depress the brake. If your brake lights work, then the switch it good. It isn't uncommon that the interlock solenoid fails. The solenoid moves the lock release when you depress the brake. If you look on the side of the console you can see a notch cut out. You can put a screwdriver in there to push the interlock and shift it from park. Of course, you don't want to do this all the time so you either need to replace the interlock solenoid (last I checked they were about $150) or just defeat the solenoid with a zip tie. The only problem with the zip tie is that you don't have to depress the brake to shift it from park and it can be shifted from park even if the key is not in it. Your owners manual will have better detail and pictures of the interlock and where to put the screwdriver to manually shift it from park.

I have a 2004 F150 supercrew 4x4 and it will not shift into park and when I start it I have to put it into neutral any help Thanks


Sounds like the shift interlock circuit has an issue.

This can be 1 of 3 places

1. The fuse for the Shift Interlock circuit. This is fuse #16

2. The shift interlock switch. This is part of the BPP ( Brake Pedal Position ) Switch that also controls the brake lamps. There are 2 switches in the BPP switch, 1 for the shift interlock, the other the brakes. The circuit in the BPP switch for the shift interlock is the Tan w/ Red stripe wire ( from fuse # 16 ) to Pink w/ Light Green stripe ( to the shift interlock solenoid ).
Test both side of this circuit with a meter ( to ground ) you should have power on the Tan w/ Red stripe wire any time the key is in the Start or Run position.
The Pink w/ Light Green stripe wire should have power any time the brake pedal is pressed down.
If you do not have power at the Pink w/ Light Green stripe wire, you need a new BPP switch.
If you have power with the brake pedal pressed on this wire, you need a new Shift Interlock Solenoid.

AFter starting my truck, i sometimes have to wait ...


Could be the Shift interlock solenoid or the shift interlock circuit ( or the fuse for it )
The shift interlock is on the same switch as the Brake Pedal Position switch, it is on the side of the brake pedal, usually has a yellow c-clip retainer on it.

Start by checking the fuse with a meter for power on both pins on the back of the fuse. The fuse is #16.

If the fuse has power on both sides, next check for power at the shift interlock circuit on the switch on the brake pedal.
The circuit is Fuse #16 to a Tan w/ Red stripe wire to the shift interlock switch to a pink w/ light green stripe wire. When the brake pedal is pushed down power should be on both sides of the switch.

If you have power to both sides, I would say the shift interlock solenoid is the issue ( located : steering wheel column ).
If this is a flow through console, the shift interlock circuit also feeds the floor shifter.
