Question about 2001 Ford Mustang
It is stuck in P, the side button on the left cannot be pressed in to release the lever.
Fuse? Solenoid? Something that I can fix?
The shift interlock does not allow the car to shift out of park unless the brake pedal is depressed. Quick fix is with the car running to set the parking brake and turn the car to off and remover the key. Put the key back in and turn one click to on. Shift the car into neutral and you can start the car and go. The repair for this is either the brake switch located on the brake pedal being replaced. I had a broken wire leading to the switch that caused the problem. It also can be a blown fuse.

The shift lock control mechanism is bad, this is what causes the transmission to not be able to be put into gear until you depress the brake pedal.
