I have a 2006 Mazda 6. It got stuck in park and the brake lights and horn went out.


The problem is with the brake lights, there is a solenoid which prevents you taking the vehicle out of park unless you have your foot on the brake, the solenoid is wired into the brake light circuit. Bridge the two wires to the switch and see if the brake lights come on, that eliminates the switch, as the horn has stopped working as well the chances are it is a fuse. To test a fuse, remove it from the box and use a multi meter set on resistance and check for continuity, if they are all ok, you are looking for a wiring fault! You could try using a live fused fly lead from the battery direct to the brake light switch to put the brake lights on, and see if the vehicle will come out of park. Then it's just a matter of finding the wiring break? Try all connectors. Good Luck

1994 dodge dakota my headlights and tail lights and brake lights don't work my abs and parking brake lights are on my dash lights don't work either I replaced the headlight switch and still no


These are all different circuits. The brake lights are on a 10amp fuse - the headlights are on a 50amp fuse - and the parking and dash lights are on a 20amp fuse.
Do you have power going into the headlight switch and the brake light switch ?

None of the blinkers work on my 1996 dodge stratus, all bulbs are good as the park lights and flashers work. I have three dead ports in fusebox under hood.


Guessed it's a V6. Trying to sort this out. If setting the headlamp switch to PARK turns on the park filaments of the front park/turn signal lamp and the tail filaments of the rear tail/stop lamps and the separate tail lamps, the park light circuit is good. If 20A fuse 6 in the power distribution center is OK, the combination flasher in the multifunction switch is receiving power. Power is directed to the turn signal lamps by operation of the turn signal/hazard warning switch. If the turn signals are not flashing, the combination switch may have failed or the turn signal flasher part of the combination flasher may have failed. Finally, the hazard warning switch causes the turn signal elements of the front combination park/turn signal lamps and the rear turn lamps to flash.

My truck will not go into gear from Park position.


In the early 90's, a safety feature was added to keep people from shifting out of park without having their brakes on. This feature runs through the brake lights (in Fords, at least.) I would bet your brake lights don't work, and if they don't then that would be why you're stuck in Park

Can't move the shifter out of Park after starting engine on my 2000 Taurus. To drive the car, I have to stop the engine, turn the key slightly back, move shifter to Neutral and restart the engine. How...


This might sound strange, but check your stopping lights and make sure they're working. If I'm not mistaken, this model had a stop light "feature" that prevented the car from moving from the park position if required lights were blown out.

The other problem could be your pawl in the transmission. Sometimes, if you don't use your parking brake, a groove can shave into it. This is usually if you are often parking on an incline, in which you should use your parking brake to avoid pawl grinding.

I'm sure you checked for nobs or release buttons, but I figured I would mention it just in case. I know my car has one, but if you drive this car often...I'm sure you knew it was there to begin with.

Good luck!

If come to A light or A stop my engine want to stop I have to push on the gass if I don`t it will stop it`s ok is long I don`t STOP.1999 fordr explore 4 door xlt (ingine light is on)


does it start and run at idle in park.
it is probably either a vacuum leak or an idle air control valve,
if it misses and runs rough before it dies maybe a vacuum leak.
if it just idles too low, the iac valve
