Question about 2007 Lincoln MKZ
Most shifters have a safety lock that comes off when you step on the brake pedal. That safety is probably got a broken spring, or lever, or something else in the mechanisim. It's a pretty common problem in Chrysler's, but it's also a cheap and easy fix in most cases.

SHIFTER LOCKED IN PLACE

The neutral safety switch on the tranny is going out. Replace this switch and you should not have any more problems. This switch registers that your foot is on the brake before it will allow it to come out of park to keep kids from accidently engaging the shifter.

SOURCE: GEAR WILL NOT SHIFT FROM
Hi, I'm Shaun. I will do my best to help you with your problem. From your description,l it sound like you may have one of two things going on. First, your brake light switch, located under the dash at the top of your brake pedal, may have gone bad. You can check this by simply checking your brake lights. If they come on when you push the pedal, this switch should be good. The brake pedal switch sends a signal to a small solenoid located under the console at the base of your shifter. If this part has gone bad, it will not release your shifter when the brake pedal is applied. These are the two main causes of this malfunction, as it's a fairly simple circuit and pretty easy to troubleshoot. The only downside is having to remove the console to get at the shifter, if you have a console shifter. If you need a more in depth walkthrough,l feel free to reply to this thread and I will contact you. Best of luck!

The ignition switch is turned to the RUN or the START position.
When the ignition switch is in the RUN or the START position, the current flows from the B/U Lamp fuse located in the underhood bussed electrical center (UBEC) through CKT 839 (PNK) to the park/neutral position switch. The park/neutral position switch also feeds the backup lamps portion of the switch. With the transmission in the PARK position, the current flows to the BTSI fuse located in the underhood bussed electrical center (UBEC) through CKT 275 (LT GRN). The current then flows to the TCC/stoplamp switch through CKT 584 (LT GRN/BLK). The current continues to the BTSI solenoid through CKT 1135 (DK GRN/WHT). The ground path is provided through CKT 1850 (BLK) to G207. When the brake pedal is depressed, the normally closed contacts in the TCC/stoplamp switch open and the current flow is interrupted. When the current flow is interrupted, the BTSI solenoid de-energizes. The transmission may then shift to another gear. When the transmission shifts to another gear (except PARK), the contacts in the park/neutral position switch open. This condition stops the current flow to energize the solenoid when the brake pedal releases.

The automatic transmission shift lock control switch
Can you or can you not take it out of park ?
Shift Lever Does Not Move with Brake Pedal Depressed
yes or no ?
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the selected gear position as determined by the engine control module (ECM). The IPC receives a serial data message from the ECM indicating the gear position. The PRND321 display blanks if:
The ECM detects a malfunction in the transmission range switch circuit.
The IPC detects a loss of serial data communications with the ECM.
You have a transmission range sensor or PCM problem , Need a professional grade scan tool to diagnose the problem , well that would be the easiest way to test .You should have all modules test for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ! That would point you in the right direction ! I would suggest you google class 2 serial data communication network !
