Have you try adjusting the linkage on the transmission and have you checked all of the grounds and and took an 12 volt tested and check out the light switch and there should be a silver box in the fuses box under the dash on the driverside test that also that could be the problem with your turn signal

In my toyota sr7 1993 3.0l pickup when i turn it on it wont shift from park to any other gear, do you have any idea why it would do this and a solution for it?


You have a problem with the shift inter lock when you put the key in the ignition and step on the brake pedal a signal is sent not only to the brake light but also to the shift interlock so the problem can reside in the brake pedal or the shift interlock itself step on the brake pedal see if you ahve brake light if you dont check the fuse for brake lights, for a 1993 there is the engine junction box in thhe engine comparartment and one under the dash also safely with ebrake on turn key on go to the brake pedal do you see the brake switch press it and have some one see if the gear will change.if it does replace the brake switch if it doesnt the shift interlock itself has to be addressedcansmo_134.gifcansmo_135.gif

SOUND LIKE TRANSMISSION BRAKE INTERLOCK SOLENOID IS NOT ENERGIZING.MAKE SURE BRAKE LIGHTS COMING ON WHEN YOU APPLY BRAKE PEDAL.SEE IF BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH MALFUNCTION OR BRAKE LIGHT FUSE BLOWN. THE TRANSMISSION BRAKE INTERLOCK SOLENOID WONT ENERGIZE, WHICH WILL KEEP YOU FROM GETTING CAR OUT OF PARK.MAKE SURE YOU HAVE 12.6 VOLTS AT BATTERY.DEAD BATTERY YOU WONT BE ABLE TO GET CAR OUT OF PARK.CHECK TRANSMISSION BRAKE INTERLOCK SOLENOID FUSE AND CHECK TO MAKE SURE BRAKE LIGHT FUSE IS GOOD AND BRAKE LIGHT FUSE NOT BLOWED.

1995 ford windstar will not shift out of park


Check your brake lights to see if they work. The shift interlock works off of the brake light circuit. If the brake lights don't work it could be the brake light fuse, the brake pedal switch. Check fuses #21 and #27 in the fuse panel under the dash.

If the fuses are good and the brake lights work, then the shift interlock solenoid has a problem.
A work-around for this is to turn the key toward the "On" position just enough to unlock the steering wheel, but not far enough to light up the lights in the dash. Then shift the shifter into neutral to start. This will get you to a shop without towing.

Hi, I have a 96 windstar. One of the wires on the brake light switch down at the brake pedal has broke at the plug and then when I went to repair it touched the steering bar and sparks flew. Once I...


fuse #7 - 15 amp , Fuse #21 - 10 amp.

Maybe you blew solid state module. There is a manual bypass.

Shift Interlock System A shift interlock mechanism prevents shifting the transaxle out of the PARK position unless the brake pedal (2455) is applied. The shift lock actuator is energized when the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position.
  • This locks the shifter in the PARK position.
  • When the brake pedal is applied and the stoplight switch (13480) is activated, the shift lock actuator is deactivated and the shifter can be moved out of the PARK position.

  • Shift Interlock System Does Not Release or Lock Properly
  • Fuse.
  • Circuit.
  • Shift lock actuator.
  • Gearshift lever adjustment.
  • Stoplight switch.

My shifter locks when i've just turned the car on and try to shift from park to drive. It moves to the right a little bit, but will not move down into reverse. Ideas?


There may be a malfunction in the shift interlock sys.
This sys. keeps the shift from being moved from park
unless the brake peddle is depressed. There are 5 fuse's, directly or indirectly related to the interlock system. Fuse #6 15amp in the fuse box under the hood on the left side. The next 4 are in the fuse box
behind the left side of the dash. Fuse #3 15amp/fuse
#18 15amp/fuse #16 20amp and fuse #4 15amp.
Check these first, before you move on to the brake
light switch, under the dash at the brake peddle.
And the shift lock solenoid, under the console left of
the shift lever. Hope this helps.
