Question about 2002 Ford Taurus SES
No stop lights when brake applied. Will not shift out of park when car is running. (When off turn key partly on shift to neutral then start.) Cruise control has stopped working. Have checked all the little fuses (2-15 Amp) in box under dash. What else should I try?
Most likely you're looking at the switch by the brake pedal. (stop light switch)
That switch not only controls the rear brake lights, but also the solenoid that releases the shift lock for the shifter.

It sounds like the shifter lock out solenoid has gone bad.It is a solenoid that releases the shifter when you push the brake pedal.

It is not the multifunction switch. The power feed goes thru the brake switch before the multi function. You have no power the the brake switch because your shift interlock is not allowing you to shift it. I'll look up the wiring diagram and repost with a solution.
