Wow, car won't shift out of park. Brake lights are coming on when pressing brakes, neutral ssafety switch underneath the truck fine. My brother opened top off of console btwn front two seats and on the side closer to the passenger seat, there is a white switch no bigger than a finger, with a circle on the button, that i have to depress to switch gears. No one can tell what the name of this part is, let alone how to get part. Is it a part of the floor assembly or not(cuz the majority of stuff is bolted to the floor)? Please help me cuz I'm at my wit's end and I'm on the verge of crying. Thx and patiently waiting for about a week.

Check to see if you have brake lights if not fix the switch on brake pedal. If yes you need to look at the shift interlock system, normally a little white box just below the key on the column. On fords you can put key in and turn a little bit so it's straight vertical and shift to neutral then start it. Your problem is with the shift interlock system that gets activated with the press of brake pedal
Could be the brake switch or the shift lock solenoid. You may be able to turn the key lock to the unlock position, move the shifter out of park, then start the engine in neutral. The shifter and the shift lock solenoid would need to be inspected.
Not sure I am following your question, or maybe questions. If you can not shift out of park with the key on, the brake switch on the pedal may be faulty or out of adjustment. If the warning light is on, it could be the fluid level sensor in the master cylinder, or the parking brake switch. If you have no brakes after you try bleeding the master cylinder, the rod inside the booster may not be connected correctly. If you replaced the master cylinder along with the booster, you would need to bench bleed the master before installing it in the truck.
Check your brake light switch for power to and from if no power to it check your fuses and related wiring. If you have power to it check for power coming out while holding down the brake pedal. If no power coming out replace the switch. If power coming out check your ground and related wiring for open/broken
Check to see if your brake lights come on when the brake pedal is depressed. If they do not come on, the problem could be the brake light switch or associated connector/wiring. The brake light circuit controls the solenoid (control) that allows the shifter to come out of the park position. The brake light switch is connected to the brake pedal arm. You May have to remove a cover panel (three plactic retainers) to see the switch. A possible solution is to turn the ignition key to the 1st position, then shift the car into neutral. This should allow you to start the car and shift into any gear. HOWEVER, you may not have brake lights (use hand signals) and when you park, use the emergency brake after stopping, shif the car to neutral and not PARK. This will allow use of your car until you can get it properly fixed.
