Could be the brake light switch, fuse, shift lock solenoid, or something going on with the shifter linkage.

SOURCE: Shifter is stuck in neutral and will not move

happened to me. There's a cheap plastic retaining clip which holds some kind of electrical cable to the mechanical assembly. THis clip broke on me trying to move the shifter into drive one day. THe shifter was actually able to be placed into park again but the indicator read, "D". I had to remove all the plastic around the steering wheel so that I could view underneath it. Once I located the assembly and discovered the broken plastic retainer I re-connected the cable to it's connector and secured it in place with multiple rubber "o-rings". I'm sorry that I don't remeber the sizes. It's been about a year and 1/2 and the shifter works better than before. Took about one and a half hours to fix after trying different sizes of "o-rings" that I had handy. I'm sure a cotter pin would work as well.

SOURCE: shifter button

just a thought but why are you trying to push the shifter button in when you are not on the brake

and what position is the shifter in when your are doing this?
if you are in park you should not beable to push the button in without being on the brakes, and you can always shift to neutral without it being pressed in anyways.

2001 ford taurus wont get out of park


Most of the time the problem is caused by the brake switch or the solenoid that locks the shifter in park.
When you turn the key on, power is applied to the solenoid and stepping on the brake cuts that power.

Stop lights wont stay on when i step on brake pedal on 2001 expedition


I had this same problem (brake lights won't come on when pushing on brake) I found that the brake light sending unit had come out of adjustment.Look under the dash by the brake pedal.There is a plastic threaded unit that needs to be pushed back towards the brake pedal lever.Careful not to push it to far or the brake lights will stay on. Hope this helps

Ford 2001 crown victoria wont shift and brake lights wont come one when pushing the break changed the break switch and the neutral safety switch


I'd check the fuses and try cycling the 4 way switch 20 to 30 times to clean the contacts. It is not going to allow the shifter to move without having brake light signal to the shifter release mechanism. Let me know. Wayne

1999 ford taurus.....wont go into any gear..is it the transmission?


if the shifter wont move with brake pedal pushed ck , shift interlock,brake pedal switch,and key interlock. if the shifter moves and trans does nothing ck cable underhood at trans for operation if working yes you have trans problem . ck fluid to see level or if burnt fluid will smell real bad if low trans wont work right.and a trans can fail with out setting any engine or trans codes.so ck engine light wont come on. there is some times a release by the shifter a small cover you pull off and stick a key or small screw driver in slot and shifter will move.

Car will not come out of park once the car is started


Check the switch under the dash that the brake pedal pushes on. This allows the trans out of park when you step on the brake.

Ford Expedition 2001 that wont shift out of Park


Shift Interlock System
The shift interlock system prevents the shifting from PARK unless the brake pedal (2455) is depressed. The shift interlock system consists of a shift lock actuator (3Z719) mounted at the base of the steering column tube (3514). If the ignition switch (11572) is in the RUN position, the shift lock actuator is continually on unless the brake pedal is depressed.

Thier is also the shift lock actuator ! plus wiring . You have a short to ground on that circuit . Do you know how to Find a short ? videos on youtube .
None of the power windows work ? Check for broken wires inside the rubber boot from the body to drivers door !
Videos on youtube for testing power window circuits .
