It could be that the shifter linkage is not letting the transmission fully engage into park. Or the parking pawl inside the transmission is damaged.

Parking Brake not working on 1998 Town Car


check to see if you have any brake pads left inside the drum, this can have happened because someone drove with the parking brake on, if everything is ok, then go ahead and adjust the wire
to the parking brake, you should start feeling it about 3 click. and in full half way down or so

Car is in park on incline, and will not start.


There is a neutral safety switch to make sure car is neutral.If that switch went bad or becase your parked on incline the switch is not made up because car rolled back when you put it in park.If you can depending on the situation,put key in ignition,turn key till one click before it starts,apply emergency brake,depress regular brakes and shift car from park to drive then back to park.then turn off key and restart.If for some reason you try to shift out of park and it wont move you need to roll car a little forward or backward(have someone else do the pushing and be carefull not to put anyone in a pinch point between another car if this car is parked between two cars)With older cars this is usally the case.If this fixes your problem i would have a mechanic change switch because this will probrobly happen again.Be carefull.......

When I start the car, I can't put the car in shift mode. Unless I am on a slight incline and put my emergency brake on to roll. What is the problem and how much will it cost me to fix?


Can't shift out of park because I've parked on a slight hill and my car has backed up slightly jaming the parking pawl in the automatic transmission after I have shifted into park but before I have set the parking brake. This is a complaint that Ford owners have had for years. Try this proceedure to see if this solves you problem and best of all it's Free. 1st when you park develop the habit of; while still having the foot brake down apply the park brake firmly first and then shift into park and then release the foot brake. Remember it is important to apply park brake with enough force to prevent the vehicle from rolling. What happens is in the rear of an automatic transmission there is a coarse gear that has a lever that engages this larger gear and when you shift into park range this lever goes into one of the spaces in the larger gear and stops the car from rolling. If the car starts to roll it can Jam the lever against the gear and make it difficult to shift out of park. By using the procedure I've outlined it prevents the lever OR Pawl from being jambed into the larger park gear. Try to make this a habit and you shouldn't have anymore problems.

This is a tranmission linkage problem. The car may be in park but the linkage arm well sometimes slip of or sometimes just run crooked as you switch through the gears. My car has also done the same thing until I recapped the arm with a new lock washer

When you have the vehicle in Neutral it should roll. If it rolls in Park you have a transmission problem. If your talking about a few inches when it is on a hill it is just play in the gears and you should use the Emergency brake when parking in that area to reduce strain on the Transmission.

Rolls backwards when in park


Then your gear is giving out. You need to put your emergency brake on to when you put in park. Get your gear checked out. Hope this helps!?

Car won't stay in park


Inside the transmission is a brake lever which locks onto the band when shifted in to park. The lever must have a broken spring attached to it. It is internal so expensive to fix
