My friend i think you will find that your ignition switch needs replaced i dont know why but its always been a fault of the ford motorcars since about 1991 till now i think the contact plates in the ignition swithches are poorly designed

The release for the shifter is tied to the brake lites, check to see if the brake lights work, if they don't then test the brake light switch at the top of the brake pedal, if it lights a test lite when you press the brake it is ok, in that case you need to check the little solenoid that pulls the cable to unlock the shifter, it is bolted to the top of the steering column, in order to get at it you will have to unbolt the column and drop it dow.

These are Dual Function Bulbs. They control the Parking Lights and the Brake Lights. This Bulb is Burnt out on the Brake Coil inside the Bulb. I have actually seen Bulbs that were Bad But you could not Tell by jast looking at them. It should be fine with a New Bulb. Please Rate My Response! Thanks!

no disrespect but....
Check the book and make sure you are using the proper bulbs on all sides. (3957 looks just like 3956 but wont work right)

u will need to fix the brake lights, it is most likely a defective brake light switch, this switch is located at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to, it is easy to replace, no special tools needed
