    Replaced the Break Light switch. By passed the switch and it worked but blew 3 fuses and got Hot. The switch was worn and the spring was weak. Took about 10 min to replace the switch. Worst part was the getting to the switch and the Cotter Pin..

You have a bad switch at the brake pedal. Or a loose wire. Try light pulling on the wires on the switch at the brake pedal under the dash. They should be tight and secure. If tight and secure the switch could be bad.

SOURCE: gear locks when i park on even a slight incline

ALWAYS engage the Parking Brake BEFORE putting car into "Park". When you want to get out of "Park", put your foot on the brake pedal, move gear shifter into desired gear, THEN take down Parking Brake. If you get stuck (gear shifter doesn't move), then try the "rocking" method (recruit 1 or 2 folks to push your car from behind while you try to move gear shifter into desired gear). Good luck!

SOURCE: refill gear oil in rear differential on 2003 ford mustang gt

The differential will have a plug in the driver's side of the housing that is removed with a 3/8" drive ratchet or square drive. Be sure you know what type of fluid is recommended for your vehicle. It will depend on whether it is a locking differential or standard.

Shift lever blocked in position D ?


Could be the park neutral switch. It senses that foot is on the brake pedal so shifter can be moved.

2005 taurus wont go into park


teh difference in neutral and park is the ratcheted gear that keeps the car from rolling in park. Check the lock gear on the tranny to make sure it engages and the car does not move. I think there is a connection to hte break pedal too to keep from going into park inadvertently without being stopped nad break pedal pushed. Look at those to prerequisits foror a clue...

My 98 ford mustang is stuck in park


check fuses for brake shift solenoid. the brake pedal position switch is a fuse under the hood. inside the passenger compartment, check every fuse. that's a start for not having more information.

2000 mustang no brake lights...several fuses blown


Do they keep blowing when you add a new one? If not, the break lights may out due to your break switch. It is a chrome looking cylinder above your break pedal. The pedal actually hits this, the stem of it.

My car wont shift out of park


Check the brake pedal position sensor to see if it is lose or malfunctioning. Most late model cars will not allow you to move the gear shifter out of park unless the Brake Pedal is depressed and you are pushing a release button on the shifter. An emergency bypass on some cars will allow you to shift from park to Neutral with the CAR TURNED OFF and the key just turned to on. Try that also and if it allows you to move to Neutral you can start in neutral and then with brake held in you can shift back to Drive. If this doesn't work you may have an antitheft interlock preventing you from operating the shift lever or some linkage to release the shifter may have broken or come lose from a connector.

Can you bypass the cluch wiring in a mustange?


you can, but I don't advise it. you really don't want your to start in gear. the switch is down by the clutch pedal, some of these have adjustments. if yours doesn't you can glue a rubber washer or two on it or the pedal to close the gap between the pedal and switch

The brake pedal has an adjustable sensor attached to the pedal arm. To adjust the sensor, you'll have to crawl under the dash. Loosen the lock nut and turn the adjustment nut, then re-tighten the lock nut. If necessary, replace the sensor.
