1. Connect the HDS with version 1.012.023 or
later software to the 16P DLC.
2. With the engine turned off, check the TPS
sensor voltage and the relative throttle
position. The TPS sensor voltage should read
0.49 volt; the relative throttle position should
read 0%.
• If both the TPS sensor voltage and the
throttle position are OK, then continue with
normal troubleshooting.
• If the TPS sensor voltage doesn't read 0.49
volt, go to step 3.
• If the relative throttle position doesn't read
0%, go to step 4.
3. TPS sensor voltage greater than 0.49 volt:
Check the adjustment of the cruise control and
throttle cables. If the cables are properly
adjusted, then replace the throttle body,
and retest.
TPS sensor voltage less than 0.49 volt: Replace
the throttle body, and retest.
4. Reset the PCM with the HDS, then do the idle
learn procedure.

SOURCE: Im not getting any power to the brake light switch 1999 GT mustan

Check fuse #41, if its good then the brake switch may need replacing. You can test the power to the switch by the use of a voltage meter touching the LG/RD (light green/red) wire with the red side of the meter and the other probe to ground. If more than 10 volts its good. You can check the BPP (brake pedal position switch) by installing a fused jumper wire from LG/RD to the RD/LG wires. Connect a 10A fused jumper wire between C242, Circuit 10 (LG/RD), harness side and C242, Circuit 810 (RD/LG), harness side. And check the brake lights, if they go on then the switch is defective. Hope this helps you.

1994sidekick stuck in park


check to see if the brake lights come on when you press brake pedal. if they don't it is stuck in park because your brake light switch doesn't work and the swich also tells the shifter lock to unlock so you can move shifter. so If no brake lights fix brake light switch and that will fix it. the switch is located at the top of brake pedal

Shifter on 95 buick riviera stuck in park


There is a "park lock cable" located in the steering column that releases the shifter after the ignition switch is turned to the on position. There is also a BTSI (brake trans shift interlock) solenoid that also releases the shifter when you press on the brake pedal. One of them is not functioning, are you able to turn the steering wheel after the car is started?

2004 Volvo s60 awd t 'stuck in park'


Check your brake lights and see if they are working. The solenoid in the shifter is energized by you stepping on the brake. If your break lights do not work... your stuck in park. This can be caused by a bad brake light switch located above your brake pedal or.... a blown hazard / brake light fuse. Check them first.....

Shifter is stuck in park and my wife is in ny and im in pa. how can she get it to work


Hi,

Just had this very same problem 10 minutes ago. Stuck at a fuel bowser at a busy servo for an hour!! Road assitance fella turned up, asked me to step on the brake and, hey presto, I could shift out of park. Apparently it's a sticky brake light relay switch. Try stepping on the brake pedal a few times. Hope this helps.

Ford 1997 Exediton got stuck in park 2 times, shaking shifter, it moved back into drive. How or what do i need to do


Possibly...shifters can feel like they are stuck in park when a vehicle is parked on a hill/slope and the parking brake was not applied. All the weight of the vehicle rests on the transmission, which makes it difficault to shift out of park.

Gear locks when i park on even a slight incline


ALWAYS engage the Parking Brake BEFORE putting car into "Park". When you want to get out of "Park", put your foot on the brake pedal, move gear shifter into desired gear, THEN take down Parking Brake. If you get stuck (gear shifter doesn't move), then try the "rocking" method (recruit 1 or 2 folks to push your car from behind while you try to move gear shifter into desired gear). Good luck!

HAVE SOMEONE GO BEHIND THE CAR AND CHECK AND MAKE SURE THE BRAKE LIGHTS ARE ON, IF THEY DON'T WORK THEN THERE IS NO POWER TO THE BRAKE PARK INTER-LOCK SOLENOID AND YOU CAN NOT DIS-ENGAGE PARK. IF THEY DON'T WORK CHECK THE FUSE, IF IT IS OK REPLACE THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH.
