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.

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.

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.

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.

Mercury xr7 starts then starts coughing and chocking like not


My cougar does the same, it starts and then about 1 minute later (or so) the check engine light comes on and the car idles really high, with black smoke out the exhaust. It stays in second gear i think and it will not shift out of it. Max speed is 40 mph with the rpms screaming, it will go off after a long time but this is agrivating. I have a 94 mercury cougar xr7 3.8 ltr Any help please?

'00 Mercury Cougar Wont get out of Park. gear shifter is stuck


sounds like your brake/shift interlock solenoid is not releasing.
Your owner manual will tell you how to bypass in emergency.
Check your fuse first. fuse panel on instrument panel.

Please rate as fixed if this helps.

Fuse 23 - 1 5 amp
Fuse 34 - 7 1/2 amp

check enigne light not related.
----------------------------------------------------

The selector lever lock can be moved mechanically out of position ”P" when for example the battery is disconnected or completely discharged.
Using a ball point pen or similar item as an unlocking lever, push forward and hold in position.

Move the selector lever out of position "P".

NOTE: If the selector lever is moved back to ”P" it is re-locked.
