Question about 2010 Ford Focus SE
Has been having this problem for a while sometimes it works just fine then gone again?
The car needs the brake to activate a switch to start it and to unlock the transmission. I would look into the brake switch for this problem

Had this problem myself. Try replacing your brake light switch, they are not real expensive and can be changed in a matter of mineuts. It is located by following your brake pedal all the way up to the top, when you get there , there id a switch that when you push down on the brake it releases the button to put you brake lights on and when you take your foot off the brake itallows the switch to go back.

If it only happens when you turn the switchto the parking lights then it is most likely the swich that is the problem. Light swich failure appears to be a common fault with fords

first chk fuses, of course,
Second chk bulbs on both sides. Yes it has happened
Third check the condition of your turn signal control. If it binds or is sloppy. Have it evaluated. The brake and 4 way circuits run through the turn signal control.

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
