Question about 1994 Lincoln Mark VIII
Cannot get out of park, shifter will not work by depressing button
Posted by Anonymous on
You must depress brake pedal to get shifter to move. Shifter unit is electrical, not mechanical to the transmission!

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.

that has happened to me I usually hold the button and try to shake it a little. My son has had to take it a part to get it to move. I read somewhere that there is a recall with something to do with the bands in the shifter. I don't know if it is the same problem or not.
