Cannot shift out of park


I had this problem with my grand marquis. it is a simple fix.
replace the brake light switch behind the brake pedal.
one way to drive with this problem is to turn key almost to the ON POSITION BUT NOT ALL THE WAY then put the car in neutral and then start the car and put in to drive.

Car will not shift into gear


Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.

i would need more info but it sounds like your trans shifter cable is out of adjustment ; you need to carefully with the brake on and the car idling; move your trans shifter cable to all positions to check for forward and reverse.
Make sure car is chalked or raised of the ground ,
