Question about 2000 Ford Taurus
You didn't put youe e-brake on before you put the trans in park. The Parking paw has to have the presure off the teeth. you can't do that by just turning the wheels. you need to move the entire can up the hill OR down to remove the
presure on the parking gear.
Always, use the parking brake it also, adjusts the rear brakes PADS.

Not sure if the above comment fixed the issue, but it is absolutely correct even if it did not.
I wanted to tell you of a similar problem that I had and to fix it here is what I did:
If it is a console Shifter, take the body pieces off housing the shifter area to view the shift interlock and take a look at the wire harness (pigtail piece) connected to the shift interlock; the wires are getting pulled out of the pigtail due to a manufacturer defect that they are not seeing as a recall, but if you have warranty left they Will fix it for free.
All you have to do is reattach the wire to the correct location it was, reroute the harness (in my Case it was about a 6 inch harness piece) so it has room to move as the shifter is repositioned to a different area (P,R,N,D,L1,L2,L3) and put it back together!
Try it you'll be surprised!
