Hi

I had the same problem with a Ford Mondeo.

Next to the auto gear stick, there should be a little cover that will lift off. I used to have to just push down in the hole with a screwdriver, to release the gearstick. It's temporary - you'll have to see a mechanic if it keeps happening - there's a switch under there that needs changing.

Hope this helps.

Why is it so hard to get my Taurus out of park


Be uber careful with that transmission. Those are delicate pieces on a Taurus. The park pawl is what's sticking. You may have a low pressure issue from the pump or you might be parking on a grade and not using the park brake. Use the park brake and save your park pawl. They can brake off and then you have no park...

My 1997 ford taurus wont shift out of park. The shifter seams to be stuck, it wont move. The shifter is on the steering wheel not the floor.


This is often a switch located on the brake pedal lever. The car requires you to press the Brake pedal before shiftting out of Park. You lose the signal when a foot hits or breaks this part. Look under the dash for the part and fix it.

When this happens, leave the key in the ignition and change from park to neutral and back again. I have to do this on my Taurus SHO from time to time. It won't start because it doesn't think it is in Park. Something to do with the shift selector switch on the transmission.
