SOURCE: 93 Mercury Tracer will not shift out of park.

This is probably happening because, underneath your shift console, there is a lever that keeps you from shifting from park without the keys in. The best way I found to fix this was, there are 6 screws, that keep you from getting to it, they are pretty visible, two right in front of the passenger and driver seat, 2 closer to where your feet would be if you were sitting in those seats, and two at the back of the e-brake console. Take this entire plastic off and you'll find that when you sit in your passenger seat, you can see a piece that is most likely dirty from spilled drinks and such, and if you push it, it may not budge, this is a solenoid, this is that piece that is keeping you from shifting from park, I recommend keeping and cleaning the solenoid if your solenoid is not completely corroded, in my case, I had to just destroy the entire thing.

The reason that solenoid piece is why you can't shift from park is because you have that solenoid piece, underneath your shifter, and when you push the button, it's hitting the solenoid. The reason for this is, the fact that your shifter uses a small cylindrical piece to guide and stay in gears, and that small cylindrical piece is probably hitting your solenoid.

SOURCE: 2007 mercury milan V6 Car wont start. Jumped it

Remove the lugs at the battery. Clean the posts and the lugs - then reconnect. Your battery won't charge (and the jumpers won't work) largely because of a film on the + post and lug. If you live in a hot summer area, (Arizona) the problem is especially troublesome.

Even though your current radio has an AUX button the radio is not programmed to utilize it.
There is no 'easy' way to add the '07 Job 2 and later year model's factory Aux input.
You will need to buy an aftermarket solution. Something like this

SOURCE: my brake/shift interlock solenoid seems

do the brake light work? the park lock out solenoid is powered by the brake light circuit, the the connector to the brake light switch breaks or the switch fails, then even though the brake light fuse is good u still have no brake lights, the switch is located above the brake pedal, u will need to remove the hush panel under the dash to see it, when u press the brake pedal u must have 12 volts into the switch and 12 volts out, a 12 volt test light is useful to check this, avail from any auto parts store for about $5. Below is a picture of the brake light switch in your car, the dealer has repair connectors if that is the problem. 7eb92ca.jpg

I have a 2006 mercury milan. My son came out of work to find the car won't start, there is only a clicking sound when he turns the key. The radio works and the battery is about 3 yrs. old. And the gea

First the battery is drained. This will cause the clicking sound and possibly the shifter not releasing, if the voltage is low enough. The pop noise, not really sure about. Could be a fuse that popped. But a bad fuse wouldn't cause the starter to click. It would turn the engine or you would have nothing.

08 mercury milan stuck in park

Check and see if your brake lights are coming on.
There is a brake interlock and if the brake pedal switch is loose and doesn't turn on the brake lights, it will not let you shift out of gear.

Its to keep you from rolling in to something by accidently putting it in gear. It also keeps you from driving with no brake lights, which will tend to get you rear ended.

The switch is usually physically attached to the brake pedal bar under in the drivers footwell.
