i would need more info but it sounds like your trans shifter cable is out of adjustment ; you need to carefully with the brake on and the car idling; move your trans shifter cable to all positions to check for forward and reverse.
Make sure car is chalked or raised of the ground ,

I have a 1994 mercury cougar that won't shift out of park. the brake lights do work. please help


This is wiring for shift interlock. Some makes and models have a bypass button close to shifter in order to bypass shift interlock. I don't know if your vehicle has that button or not? I looked at info for 6 cylinder.

Stuck in park ?


Not too sure about your car but some cars will not shift gears if stop lights are not working. Fix the stop light problem before trying anythnig.

2002 Mercury Cougar very hard to shift.


This could be a synchronization problem with the brake switch and the trans linkage. The second half of your problem is different.

The release for the shifter to come out of Park is dependent on a switch on the brake pedal lever. This brake pedal switch is suppose to make a release work to allow the shift selector to drop out of Park. It sounds like something is binding and a part is not moving far enough to allow for easy shifting.

For the drive problem, more details would be needed; perhaps a second separate problem solution request. You might want to fix the above conditions and see if it works its' way through the system.

Cannot get the car to shift out of park


the brake pedal has a sensor or switch it may be out.

Check the fuse!


APPLY BRAKES AND SEE IF BRAKE LIGHTS COME ON. IF NO BRAKE LIGHTS, REPLACE THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH LOCATED ON THE BRAKE PEDAL ARM AND THIS SHOULD ALLOW YOU TO SHIFT OUT OF PARK. IF THAT BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH IS BROKE, YOU WON'T BE ABLE TO GET IT OUT OF PARK

Volt gage jumps when car shifts, not very often driving down highway,puting it in gear. sometime brakes do not aply correctly , double pump brakes before it will let shifter move out of park.


you have a couple problems:
1} check the electrical heading into the transmission - that controls the shifting solenoids - perhaps there is a poor or even possible an unhooked line in the transmission...
2} check the safety switch on the brake pedal to ensure it is functioning properly..
Best regards

94 cougar stuck in park and no brake lights


some of these had a switch on the brake master cylinder that will short out and blow the brake fuse. unplug that switch , and check the fuse, replace it if its blown. (brake lamp fuse) the switch is used for the cruise control.

1989 Mercury Cougar Engine will not turnover. Jiggle stick shift most of the time car will start, very intermittent...does not happen all the time. Is there a sensor attached to the gear shift that detects...


There is a switch on the side of the trans called a neutral safety switch. It only allows starting in park or neutral. the switch probably needs replacing. The next time you have a problem starting, try shifting to neutral to see if it will start. To do so, leave the key in the on position, apply the e-brake and shift into neutral.

Car wont shift from park


check your brake lights also, if none then you need to repair the wire that connects to the brake light switch at the brake pedal.....and or replace the brake light switch

1999 Mercury Cougar 2.5L initially blower motor died, hazard lights stopped working, ran great, but now will not shift out of park.


this sounds like you should be keeping up with checking fuses with a test light on both sides of the fuse,the inter lock solenoid on the shift cable is not powering up,check your brake switch.
