Common problem with these cars are that the rubber piece that "gaps" your brakepedal from the micro-switch keeps breaking (they usually have a replacement rubber piece connected on the brake pedal beside it). If your brake lights won't go off because of this, either change-out this rubber gap piece - or, you can just change the gap with a wrench, and not even use the rubber gap piece (this is what I ended up doing on a couple of my escorts).

My 1998 Ford Taurus Stations Wagon. Transmission is stuck on Park. What do do?


is the car on in incline if so you may have to user some force to get it out, the other problem may be the linkage at trany but this is only if the shifter moves and car is in park, if the shifter doesnt move and theres no incline then make sure the brake lights work because when you step on the brake the shift lock releases the shifter and it gets power from the brake switch so if the light dont work theres no power to the shift lock to release, try these check first. hope this helps,

                1998 ford escort wagon brake lights out. bulbs and fuses changed.


                Sounds like your brake light switch has gone bad. It is located on your brake pedal and is easy to change and relatively inexpensive. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

                Cigarette lighter don't work can't figure which fuse it is.


                if your fusebox is in the panel to the right of the ignition key, the fuse is number 29, this fuse also covers other items so it maybe that either the cables have come off the back of the lighter or it is faulty if the fuse is good. hope this helps.

                make sure that your brake switch at the pedal is not broken or loose alos check the wiring connector at the brake light switch, if it is ok then the problem is in the switch at the shifter itself it is a safety feature to preven accidental drive away of vehicles.
