The brake light switch is located on the lower end of the steering column beside the brake pedal. OR it could be the BRAKE SHIFT INTERLOCK fuse located in the fuse box under the left side of the dash. You can still drive your car by turning the key on just enough to shift to neutral, then start the car and you can shift into reverse or drive. If you shift to PARK, then you have to start over.

I have a 93 ford 250 7.3 deisel standard with a manual 4x4 and it wants to keep jumping from 2 wheel drive to 4 wheel drive and the 4x4 shifter doesn't want to push down into nuteral


Check out F150OwnersBlog.com or 4x4Owners Blog. It sounds like the actuator inside the transfer case is stuck.

If this is the Vacuum shift setup, the plunger inside the 4x4 box is sticking. You also could have low vacuum pressure from a bad Vacuum pump on the engine.

The Electric setups worked differently. The voltage running to the underside wires to the shift solenoid had set values to extend and retract the solenoid plunger. Often, a burned out light in the inside Selector switch on the dash would affect the Voltage sent to the solenoid. A silly thing like changing the indicator bulb would restore the proper voltage underneath the truck.

Remember to sequence the trans to neutral before engaging some of the transfer cases.

I hope my solution is helpful.

1999 Honda Accord EX won't shift out of park. It is stuck. I think it's the shift lock solenoid but I'm not sure. How do I get the car out of park. I pushed the brake in but the button on the gear shifter...


If you press the Break pedal and the shift button does not engage, Your Solenoid did not activate to release it out of park. either the: solenoid is out - Bent levers - Solenoid harness disconnected - Break activation wire may be damaged. this piece is easy to replace as it sits on the right side (passanger side) of the shift lever. remove center console cover to access the soleniod which is held on by two 10mm nuts. and a C- clamp

1997 Lincoln Towncar. Shifter stuck in park


There is a switch mounted on the arm of the brake pedal (under a plastic cover held on with 3 plastic push-pins). There is an electical connection attached to this switch. In my case one of the wires had broken and was not supplying electricity to the switch. By fixing the broken wire it allowed the shifter to properly move and got the brake lights working again.

940 volvo comes out of overdrive without touching button


IPDusa.com.  If its similar to a 240 (and it most likely is) you can purchase a block off plate for the solenoid so you won't lose 4th gear (actually its OD from torque converter lockup).
