Question about 2005 Lincoln Navigator
Hi Robert, I'm glad to help!
Robert on Chrysler vehicles. Sometimes its not the power or ground or even the release solenoid. Most of the time its the mechanical mechanism inside the shifter itself. I would call the dealer and see if they have problems with the shifter not coming out of park. The other thing I'd like to see you check is: When you unplug the cable from the shifter can you manually shift gears. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Robert.

SOURCE: Brake Light Doesn't
Yes. Look on the brake pedal lever under the dask. When the brake pedal is pressed the switch is engaged. This is easy enough to replace. If you see two switches, the other one is probably a switch to disable the cruise control.

Most likely the problem you are experiencing with the park assist is a fault in one of the sensors mounted in the rear bumper. I would not consider it to be a major fix, however there will be a few hours labor involved as the bumper cover needs to be removed to replace the sensors.

Its a sensor under the brake. You can actually pull the shifter with a little force and it will go into gear. It will cost about $400 at a good garage. Looking at $600 and more at dealer. When you force it into gear, you are not hurting the transmission, just over riding the sensor. Your "D" will not light up on the dash or at the shifter untiol you fix it.

Yes, to a point. It also depends on if you have it in 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive. The system jacks up the vehicle higher in 4x4 for clearance.
The suspension is suppose to drop when you park to make it easier to get in and out and to load the rear cargo area. You will therefore always have the suspension pump go on when you first start the vehicle. Your vehicle should set the same as other Navigators. If your vehicle looks like it has 4 flat tires, then that is too much.
You have a longer warranty with a Lincoln if you are still concerned about it.

Do the brake light work? No brake lights and it won't shift out of park. Check your fuses and check for loose wires. Check your brake light switch. If that has failed, you won't be able to get out of park. The other one if the shift lock solenoid which is in the shifter assembly. The brake shift interlock switch prevents the car being shifted from park unless the brake pedal is depressed. Try to apply power/ground to the proper wires & see if it will activate.. If it does, then the problem is between the brake light switch & that solenoid. Could be the wires or the switch.Make sure the shifter cable is still held down in place at the shifter assembly & under the hood. It is the interlock switch that you hear/feel clicking.It is for the prior generation but may still apply.
Good Luck and hopefully you soon will be on the road again...;-)
