Question about 1998 Ford Mustang
Look for transmission shift interlock solenoid fuse.or a bad brake switch will cause transmission not to come out of park.
Most automatics require the depression of the brake pedal before the shifter will release out of park.
The other thing that could prevent this is that you are possibly parked on a slant and didn't set the parking brake. The little pin in the tranny is all that is holding your car from rolling - there's lots of pressure resting on that pin, so it may take lots of force to get it to move. Always, always, set the manual parking brake in automatics on hills . ----------- its because broken transmission cable.the transmisson cable needs to be replaced. --------------- also another reason can be a faulty brake switch that is connected to the brake pedal. You normally step on the brake to place the car in gear. If the switch goes out and you step on the brake the trans will not engage. ---------- also another reason can be wrong parking ----- you must have put the car in park and let the car roll before engaging the hand brake. If your car rolled while in park and the weight of the car leaned on the parking brake you may need to push the car a little bit before it can get out of park. depending on the car the push may need to be a little or a lot. Next time follow this as a parking routine: reverse or drive into parking spot, stop, with foot still on the brake pedal put car in park and engage hand brake fully so that car doesn't roll. Remove foot from brake pedal. This should stop that problem. ------------ this will help.thanks.please do rate the solution.thank you for using fixya.keep updated.
