Find the cause of no brake lights and the park lock will start working, it is powered by the brake light circuit.

The first thing to check is that you have working brake lights. If they are not working then the solenoid that pulls the park pin back to unlock the shifter is not going to get power from the brake light circuit.

When i start my wind star in park and apply brake it wont shift out of park


Hi, first check your brake lights. If they are not working, the likely problem is the brake light switch above the brake pedal.
The shifter has a solenoid that locks the shifter until you put your foot on the brake. If the brake switch fails or the fuse burns out, the brake will not signal the shift solenoid to unlock the shifter. If the brake lights are working, the problem may be the shift solenoid itself. The solenoid is at the base of the shifter.
Please let me know if you have questions, and thanks for using FixYa.

Sounds like since the park lock and the brake lights are both inoperative, the faulty component would be the brake light switch which should be just above the brake pedal under the dash.

More info, let me know.

1995 ford windstar will not shift out of park


Check your brake lights to see if they work. The shift interlock works off of the brake light circuit. If the brake lights don't work it could be the brake light fuse, the brake pedal switch. Check fuses #21 and #27 in the fuse panel under the dash.

If the fuses are good and the brake lights work, then the shift interlock solenoid has a problem.
A work-around for this is to turn the key toward the "On" position just enough to unlock the steering wheel, but not far enough to light up the lights in the dash. Then shift the shifter into neutral to start. This will get you to a shop without towing.

95 Ford windstar won't shift out of park when the brake is depressed, no brake lights, bulbs and fuses are good


Sounds like the brake light switch on the brake pedal is bad. Try turning the key just off the locked position, shift into neutral and start the engine. If you turn the key to the to far to the on position the shift interlock engages and will only release when the brake lamp switch activates.
