Hello..

Having changed the Brake Sw. It seems like you might have a problem with the Shift Lock Actuator. This is inline, cicuit wise with the Brake Sw.

It is located up under the dash near the firewall, near the brake or gas pedal.

Good Luck... Hope this helps...

Brake lights were on continuously.changed brake switch now the wont work at all and stuck in park


The brake switch is probably mis-adjusted. If it does not activate when the brake pedal is depressed, the brake lights will not light and the gear shift release solenoid will not activate. That, or the wiring harness is not connected properly to the switch or is damaged.

Taurus brake light switch


It wont go into gear because you have no power to your brake light switch or your brake light switch is bad. test your fuses with a test light or volt meter if all are good replace brake light switch.Its probably a blown fuse if this was helpful please leave good feed back

The gear will not go into park and allow the truck to start nor move to any gear


HI the problem you are having is with the brake light switch if the switch isnt working then it wont allow you to change the gear.

get someone to check the lights for you have the ignition on and press the brakes and get someone to see if the brake lights come on, if they dont then the brake light switch will need replacing, the switch is located on the back of the brake pedal, its a bit difficult to get to and you have to get on your hands and knees and have a close look at the brake pedal the switch is located at the very top of the pedal and at the back you should see it it will have a couple of wires going to it.

if the brake lights are working then check that the brake lights are on when you try changing the gear you may need to press the brake pedal down a bit harder so the brake light switch works.

let me know if the brake lights are working then ill assist you further if the lights dont work then its the brake light switch that needs replacing.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

Have a vw touareg 2005, esp light stays on and car becomes absolutely impossible to drive. revs high to change gear and is not smooth in gear change.power shuts off in motion. have tried every thing but...


the esp light is caused by failure of the brake light switch in most models. check your brake light operation and replace the switch if the brake lights have failed. the switch is found in the footwell above the brake pedal

Car stuck in Park, wont switch gears


check to see if the brake lights come on it may be a problem with a brake switch under the dash not letting the shift lock release. there may be a seperate switch just for it so check and see it there is two switches touching the brake pedal lever if the brake lights come on.

have you checked the brake lights for operation ?
if they don't work than it is your brake light switch located on the pedal support bracket.

Suburban wont go into gear


check to see if your brake lights are working.there is a safety system that wont allow you to shift from park unless you push the brake pedal........most of these systems utilize the brake light switch for this........if your brake lights dont work it is most likely a blown fuse.
hope this helps....

2000 crown victoria -brake lites failed


You have a bad switch at the brake pedal. Or a loose wire. Try light pulling on the wires on the switch at the brake pedal under the dash. They should be tight and secure. If tight and secure the switch could be bad.
