Where is shift interlock solenoid located on 1996 mercury villager?

The are normally located in the gear lever itself.

A common problem though- check if your brake lights are working! In order for the solenoid to release, you have to press the brake pedal. The brake light switch sends this signal and if there is a blown fuse or a faulty brake light switch, it is the common fault for the solenoid not disengaging. These solenoids themselves are not a commonly faulty unit!

How to change a brake light switch on a 98 mercury mystique

brake light switch location are usually located above the brake pedal, you have to visually look and see. If you follow the the brake pedal upward youll come across a switch possibly and when you depress the brake pedal you can see that the switch is no longer touching the brake pedal. If thats the location of the switch then you can see that youll have to disconnect it from the wires connected to this switch and there should be a connector that you can unplug, Most of them are very easy to disconnect. once disconnected you may remove the switch and replace. I hope this has helped

Do you hear or see the electric fan(s) at the radiator come on when the temp gage reads above 3/4 towards hot.
If they are not coming on even when HOT is reached.......they should be checked.

Brake lights for a 1996 Mercury Mystique

The "multifunction switch" is bad. In the old days, this was called the turn signal switch. The brake light wiring for the two non functioning lights goes through this switch. Have your mechanic check the wiring into and out of this switch. It's in the steering column.

My 1996 Mercury Sable wont go out of park.....

are the brake lights working? if not check the brake light fuse. If the lights don't work the shift interlock system doesn't recognize that your foot is on the brake. If the fuse is ok it's most likely the switch itself. That is buried under the dash and is not easily accessible, but if you follow the brake pedal up under the dash at the top there is a rod that goes to the firewall where the pedal attaches to the rod is where the switch is. (locate it by looking for an electrical connector)
hope this helps!
