    an easy way is to see if the car starts in nuetral but not in park, then the switch is defective, also most times a defective switch can start working if u jiggle the gear shift around while trying to start the engine, u will need a wiring diagram gfor further testing if this still doesn't ID the switch

My car wont move out of park and the braks lights arent working.


my ford taurus did this to me too.... your car wont move out of park because it might be the neutral safety switch because your brake light connector piece might have come undone...
now first off the brakes (my switch was above my brake pedal) and just make sure its clipped in and then your neutral safety switch should go of and you can put it into gear.
if you cant find the brake thing to see if its unplugged just turn your key slightly on before all your dash lights come on and put the car into neutral and then start your car and you can put it into gear.
