Question about Lincoln Navigator
03 navigator stuck in park and check suspension light on same time and it's not the switch on the brake pedal
Had this happen on 2 separate Ford Explorers. On one the problem was solved by simply pushing on the vehicle and rolling it about 8" until it locked into park. Had to do this a few times when stopped on level ground and the vehicle had not actually clicked into park. Then mysteriously the problem went away.
On the second vehicle the device in the steering column that actuates the little stop had to be replaced. We did go ahead and replace the brake pedal switch at the same time just as a precaution. On this Explorer the driver had broken the stop by forcing the shifter out of park. This caused the replacement to be slightly more difficult.

SOURCE: Shifter stuck in park.
The BTSI (Brake Transmission Shift Interlock) has a small spring retainer on the park safety. A small plastic tab breaks & releases the spring. This requires the shifter to be disassembled in order to be repaired.
Repaired mine Sunday May 1st and can provide detailed instructions if desired.
If you are lucky, your brake interlock is the only problem. There is a bypass switch located beside the gear selector. Remove the small "cubby" bin located next to the gear shift by simply lifting up to remove. You will note a small access port and a pink button contained therein. Press the pink button to override the brake interlock.
If you still cannot shift into park, then the shifter must be removed for the spring repair. Even if yours is still under warranty, you will get another shifter that will eventually fail due to poor engineering.
Please let me know if you would like my assistance.

SOURCE: parking brake is stuck on
need to get the truck on jack stands remove the wheels and if the truck has drums you maybe able to use some PB blast because the brake cables are rusted for the emergency brakes and at the same time you can check out the condition of your shoes or pads if you get any oil on the shoes or pads use brake cleaner to clean them off

Make sure the brake lamp switch(es) are working and no blown fuses. Be sure no aftermarket accessories have been improperly installed into these circuits.

SOURCE: Suburban stuck in PARK
I accidently posted under 2004 Envoy - actually a 1997 Chevy Suburban. Found the switch on the brake actuator rod, sprayed with WD 40 (sloppy - hit or miss) - and moved the switch around. Now works fine. If I could find a way to remove the switch, I would replace. I may find the wires for the power and release servo and jump those out with a remote switch in case of future problems.
