When i put my foot on the brake,i cant put the van in gear


Make sure the brake lights work first. The park lock system has to receive a signal from the brake lights before it will release the lock to allow you to shift out of park.

Gear shift wont move


You could try checking the brakelight fuse cause some parking pins work off of the brake light switch you can usually hear a click when you mash the brakes to put it in gear.

Can't get my Mercury Mariner out of park. Some times it is fine and others..not so much. It is a 2005 with 52,000 miles on it. What the heck is going on with my ride and how much so I expect it to cost...


Connected to your brake pedal is a switch. When you mash the brake pedal down, it actuates a solenoid in shifter that allows you to put the car in gear. If that solenoid is going bad or the mechanisms in side the shifter are bad, then that will prevent you from being able to put it in drive.

I just had the same problem. If it is a regular van try under the driver seat in a plastic box. If it is a conversion van try in a pannel just behind driver seat on side of van wall behind a pannel that looks like a vent.
