There is a switch on the brake pedal. I had to replace one on mother in laws tarus. it is the switch that is made when you have to press brake pedal. check to see if your taillights are working. you can take switch apart fairly easily and clean copper contacts with sand paper. just scuff a little. it could be a linkage issue but it could just as easily be that switch.

1991 Ford F150 won't shift into park or reverse. Will go into neutral and drive, and the linkage at the transmission moves ok

The linkage may be out of adjustment preventing the shifter from moving into reverse or park.
One way to test this is to disconnect the linkage and manually move the lever on the transmision making sure that it can be set into park. Also try moving the lever counting each click from park to low gear to make sure it is clicking into each gear. If this works then the linkage is probably out of adjustment.
On the link cable there is typically a bolt in an oval shaped metal near the transmission shift lever.
1)Detach the shift cable from the transmission shift lever
2)Put the transmision shift lever in the park position, and also the shifter in the cab
3)Loosen the adjustment bolt
4)Reattach the cable to the lever
5)Tighten the adjustment bolt in place
6)Confirm that you can shift through all of the gears
Hope this helps

Ford f150 1994 can the shifter cable be too long and still work?

If the cable mounts the same as the old cable...then the length of the cable shouldn't matter.

Can't budge ford F150 4WD shifter

I actually just had this same problem on my 1997 F250. I decided to try and force it though and snapped it off like an idiot before I realized what the problem was. If you go under your truck, you will see where the 4x4 lever engages the linkage. About 3/4" off the bottom of the lever, you will see there is a 1/2" nub that sits inside a track. Occasionally this nub will "pop" itself outside that track and need to be worked back in"i used a screwdriver and just pryed it back in". This must be a common issue, because mine was out of the track, and when I went to the junkyard to replace, 4 out of 7 were the same way. I ended up getting one and just popped the nub back in and it has shifted with ease for 3 years now. If I confused ya at all, email me at and ill send ya some pics.
