Question about 2001 Ford Ranger Regular Cab
The shift actuator releases the shifter lock when the brakes are applied, if the actuator is faulty it will not release the shifter. You can test the actuator using a test light to make sure that it's getting a 12V input when the brakes are applied, if so then look to see if the actuator is moving. If you have a 12V input but no movement then you can remove the actuator and us a volt ohm meter to test the Actuator or a 12V battery. This can also be removed but i do not suggest this! It is a great safety feature.
