I am not an expert on this, but there should be a little plastic piece that you can pop out. it should be right around the shifter may around the "P". If you pop off the cover and take something small like a pen or screwdriver and depress the piece in the cavity it will come out of park. But you may have to do that every time after you shift to park until you get it fixed.

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.

SHIFTER STUCKED IN PARKING IN MY 1996 MERCURY TRACER


Hello, The problem is the Brale pedal lever under the dash. You will probably notice that when you hit your brake pedal the stop lights will not come on. The brake pedal has a switch on it to detect that the brakes are on before you can shift out of park.

The switch under the dash can get hit by feet and either dislodged or broken. When you work on this switch, sometimes called an Interlock switch, when you get your brakes lights to work everything else should start working properly for you. This is a common problem on many of the Ford products.

I hope my solution is very helpful to you.

Check your brake lights. If they dont work, the shifter will not come out of park. You should be able to turn key on, move shifter, then start it in neutral. Check fuses and then brake light switch.

My 1998 Tracer is stuck in park. When I push on the brake, the button on the shifter will not push in.


Hello! It sounds as if your gear shift lock isn't working properly - it should release when you depress the brake pedal. You're not stuck, however. There is a small plastic piece to the side of the gear shift on the console - you can pry this piece up and off, revealing a hole underneath. Insert a screwdriver straight down and you will push on the manual gear shift release button - once you do that you will be able to move the gear shift. This can be caused by a few things - weak battery, or the release button is broken behind the brake pedal.


Hope this helps and good luck!
