Have someone look at the Brakelights when you step on the brake. If they do not light up, that is the reason the car will not shift into gear.

There is a switch on the top of the brake pedal and it is an Interlock. The part is suppose to reduce the chance of runaway cars when you shift into gear, a process known as "lurching".

Although the switch is mounted high on the brake pedal lever, it often gets broken or moved by the drivers' feet. Look up under the dash and see the condition of this part on the brake pedal lever. You will then know whether to replace or reposition the switch.

Please rate my info.

duck tape on the air intake. I just fixed mine. There is a crack on the intake that lets too much air in when you put it in drive that makes the car stall. Try it it works.

Have you tried cleaning out your throttle body and plenum. That is a good quick fix for throttle responce. Especially the throttle body. They make some pretty good cleaning chemicals to do this.

Sounds like a bad IAC (idle air control valve/sensor) that controls your idle when going from throttle to idle. If bad your idle will act crazy and can cause stalls easily. Pretty sure that's it.

My ford ranger is stuck in park changed out my brake switch and still wont come out of park


Could be the shift lock solenoid if equipped.
You may be able to shift out of park by turning the key to the unlock position, but not to the on position.

Do your brake lights work?
If not, check your fuse for them. You likely need to apply your brake to release the solenoid to allow the shifter to move.
Many vehicles had an manual override slot near the shifter you could push a key or small screwdriver down into to release it.
