SOURCE: 93 Mercury Tracer will not shift out of park.

This is probably happening because, underneath your shift console, there is a lever that keeps you from shifting from park without the keys in. The best way I found to fix this was, there are 6 screws, that keep you from getting to it, they are pretty visible, two right in front of the passenger and driver seat, 2 closer to where your feet would be if you were sitting in those seats, and two at the back of the e-brake console. Take this entire plastic off and you'll find that when you sit in your passenger seat, you can see a piece that is most likely dirty from spilled drinks and such, and if you push it, it may not budge, this is a solenoid, this is that piece that is keeping you from shifting from park, I recommend keeping and cleaning the solenoid if your solenoid is not completely corroded, in my case, I had to just destroy the entire thing.

The reason that solenoid piece is why you can't shift from park is because you have that solenoid piece, underneath your shifter, and when you push the button, it's hitting the solenoid. The reason for this is, the fact that your shifter uses a small cylindrical piece to guide and stay in gears, and that small cylindrical piece is probably hitting your solenoid.

My 2000 Sable starts blowing hot air about every 6 months. I mean like an oven. All I do is disconnect the battery negative terminal for about 5 minutes. After I re-connect the problem is solved. This solves many problems on this car, it just needs a re-boot. It must be powered by Microsoft (ha ha). Good luck. ps my auto headlamps never did work right either. Dave.

SOURCE: My 2002 Mercury Sable will not shift into gear,

Wasn't there a recall for the sensor/part that keeps the gear shift from moving when your foot is not on the brake? Did you ever take your car back to have this replaced?

2000 ford mercury 3.0, shifter wont move. had a fender bender, put it into park and it wouldn't come back out.



For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

For more troubleshooting, I suggest you to get the Following help link checked, its complete step by step procedure to inspect gear shift issues: -----

Sounds like the safety switch that allows it to shift out of park with brake pedal applied is faulty.

2003 Mercury Sable will not move in any of the gears. It went from working perfectly to not moving in forward or reverse. It has 121,000 miles on it.


It sounds like it can be either very cheap or very expensive to fix. If you know a little about cars look under the hood at the transmission which is behind the engine.

The engine should only crank in Park and Neutral. If the engine cranks in any gear the shifter is not attached to the cable anymore. The shifter or cable is broken.

You should see something like a shift cable attached to a stem coming out the transmission. You need to determine if the cable moves or rods move. You may need to look under the floor shift too! If either end is not moving when the shifter is moving, then you just need a shift cable.

However, if the transmission levers are moving and the engine cranks only in Park or Neutral then it is the transmission.

Car wont move.


Could be that your linkage is broken and just looks like it is shifting or a bad tranny module or tranny but i would look at the linkage and see if it is hooked up to the tranny.
