Can you be more specific on what/where this light is and what it is used for? If a light is working sometimes but not others then that usually indicates a loose connection or corrosion somewhere in the circuit.

Button on the gear shift does not press into move gear shift on mountaineer

Check to see if brake lights are working when you step on pedal...if not you may have a bad brake lamp switch on the pedal shaft.if the shifter interlock doesn't see power out of the switch it won't allow you to shift out of park. It's a safety system to prevent anyone from shifting into gear when they might be pressing gas pedal. If you're stuck, sometimes you can turn key on to just before dash lights come on, put vehicle in neutral and start and shift, but be careful because you may not have brake lights and could cause an accident or possibly get pulled over.

Gear shift locked

If you check your brake lights you will probably notice that they are not working either. There is a switch on top of the brake pedal lever that often gets hit by the Drivers feet. A signal from this switch is necessary to allow the gear shift to move.
Sometimes the switch is knocked out of position and can be refitted, sometimes the switch is hit so hard that it breaks. Once you fix this switch, the gears will shift.
The purpose of the switch is to make sure your foot is on the brake so the vehicle can not lurch when it is put into gear.
