Question about 2004 Ford Thunderbird
While stopping car, the engine/transmission sped up. It actually moved my car thru a red light while applying the brakes
If you must leave your car idling for several seconds or more, you can put your car in neutral and turn off the engine.

It sounds like the shifter lock out solenoid has gone bad.It is a solenoid that releases the shifter when you push the brake pedal.

Have you tried checking your throttle positioning sensor. Possible vacuum leak or check for carbon build up in the throttle body not letting the throttle valve shut all the way.

Sounds like one of the springs that hold the rear brakes in place broke. Jack her up, pop off the tire, remove the drum and take a look. If you need to see what a good one looks like, look on the other side.
This is not a very common problem, but I saw it last year on a 69 chevelle.
Good Luck and thanks for using FixYa!!
