Have your alternator checked for free at an autozone, advance or O'Reilly auto parts. If the diode trio goes out it will cause a drain and kill the battery overnight. Also have them check the battery for a dead cell.
If your brake lights stay on it is a simple matter to push the switch back into its' holder while pushing the brake pedal down. When you release the brake pedal it will adjust itself automatically.

Sounds like a faulty Throttle position sensor. Warranty should pay for parts & damage, talk to your dealer. The 88 -90 ford tempos had same problem & a driving school was using them, lots of kids & instructors got the heck scared out of them, but luckily no-one injured badly.

Gear shifter won't shift into reverse or park


When you "muscled it into neural" you broke the shifter. Most likely it will take a replacement shifter to repair.

Can't move the shifter out of Park after starting engine on my 2000 Taurus. To drive the car, I have to stop the engine, turn the key slightly back, move shifter to Neutral and restart the engine. How...


This might sound strange, but check your stopping lights and make sure they're working. If I'm not mistaken, this model had a stop light "feature" that prevented the car from moving from the park position if required lights were blown out.

The other problem could be your pawl in the transmission. Sometimes, if you don't use your parking brake, a groove can shave into it. This is usually if you are often parking on an incline, in which you should use your parking brake to avoid pawl grinding.

I'm sure you checked for nobs or release buttons, but I figured I would mention it just in case. I know my car has one, but if you drive this car often...I'm sure you knew it was there to begin with.

Good luck!

Guages went dead, tranny not shifting from 3rd gear


Your transmission appears to be in "Limp Home" mode. This usually indicates an internal transmission problem that the computer has decided is too serious to allow regular operation. EVERYTHING, even your windshield wipers, has to get permission from your computer to operate. When the computer interferes with your operation of the vehicle, it sometimes gets overzealous and does other, more funky and entertaining things than it actually needs to do to protect or disable the vehicle.
The next place you need to go to in this vehicle is a transmission repair facility, attached to a tow-truck. They will confirm/eliminate the transmission as the problem. There are other things it could be, but it's telling you "transmission" and you need to have that confirmed/eliminated first, because it is almost always the most destructive and expensive fault a vehicle can develop. Don't drive it again, because it's cheaper to repair a transmission that has not grenaded.
