Does your car have the `lamp out'indicator system? It's more complicated.
My manual shows fuse #28 , a 15 amp fuse powers the brake bulbs.Is this the one you changed?
A bulb can be out for a long time and you don't notice it,then the other burns out and you think they both went out at the same time,but they might not have,see?
So check the bulbs and make sure you got that brake switch installed correctly. don-ohio (:^)

SOURCE: brake lights

what you need to do is where your brake pedal is follow the flat piece up into the dash about 4 or five inches now depress the pedal look where the gap is when you pushed the peddle down to when it was up you will see a brake switch mounted sideways how it works when you press down the flat skinny part of the upper pedal goes down releasing the button out when you let it back up it closes the button back up to kill the power

SOURCE: 97 mercury sable, overhead dome light always stays on

This requires a very simple fix. All you have to do is spray some WD-40 on each of the plastic door latches (if you don't know which door is causing the problem) which are located at the end of each door which will be at the end of the door farthest away from the door hinges. This is where the dome on/off switches are located. The dome switches are incorporated into the door latch assembly.

Mercury sable gear shiftier jammed in park

Found this for a '93
Check that the brake lights work. The neutral park solenoid needs to see an input from the brake light switch before it allows the transmission to be taken out of park. If the brake lights don't work check the switch and fuses. If not the solenoid that allows the shift linkage out of park may have failed. Nearly every car has a mechanical override to allow the transmission to be shifted out of Park.

And this for a 2002
More than likely the BOO (brake on/off) switch located on the brake pedal, or it's connector is the problem. Check to see if the brake lights are working. If not, you can disconnect the BOO switch and jump the wires together. If the brake lights come on then, it should shift out of park.

So your's should be the same.

You have to have power to your brake switch for your shifter interlock to work. I would check the brake fuse and make sure you are getting power to the brake switch located on the pedal assembly under the steering column.

Gear shift is stuck on park

Be sure to check ALL fuses. Next check to see brake lights come on when brake pedal is press to check brake light switch. If this doesn't work you may have a mechanical problem inside shifter housing.

Instrument control panel gear position light is out

check your fuse on the instrument cluster and light. And it is probably your stop brake switch needs to be replaced. Just had to do the stop brake switch on 95 chevy suburban. the brake light and tail lights weren't working, had to get the switch now works. good luck I hope this helps you.

My break lights aren't working

If all of your lights inside and out arent working, then its sounds like an electrical isuue. that cost as much as $1500 dollars. But i would start with checking the fuses in your relay box under the hood. That is usually where the lights fuse is at. Some cars have two fuse boxes and a relay box, one fuse box is inside the car, one is under the hood, and the relay box is under the hood. So i would check the relay box under the hood or fuse box if you can find one. granted your brother checked them all, it sounds to me like an obvious blown fuse... good luck

94 mercury sable stuck in park

Check your brake lights. If they dont work, the shifter will not come out of park. You should be able to turn key on, move shifter, then start it in neutral. Check fuses and then brake light switch.

Brake lights do not come on

find the brake light switch on the top of the brake pedal lever. Cross the two wires in the connector with a paper clip - if the brake lights now work, your switch is probably bad.
