Question about 1993 Mercury Villager
Brakelamps (rear) and high-mount brakelamp continuously to be ON, even though lights are off, or park brakes are off and even if engine is OFF.
The brake light switch may need to be replaced. It sounds like it is stuck in the "connected" positon. If it is stuck in the "disconnect" position, then you may not be able to switch to "D" drive. The switch is very easy to replace and located just above the brake pedal. I suggest to get an OEM from the dealer instead of a cheaper one from the parts store. It costs about $25 .vs. $9.99. I had to replace the cheap ones twice.

NOTE: Your vehicle is equipped with a
brake-shift interlock feature. This
feature prevents you from shifting
from P (Park) unless you have the
brake pedal depressed. (The ignition
must be in the ON position.) If you
cannot shift from P (Park) with the
brake pedal depressed:
1. Apply the parking brake.
2. Remove the key.
3. Insert the key and rotate one position
clockwise (ignition in the OFF position).
4. Apply the brake pedal and shift to N
(Neutral). (If the vehicle is shifted to P
(Park), you must repeat the previous steps.)
5. Start the vehicle.
If you need to shift out of P (Park) by using the
alternate procedure described above, it is
possible that a fuse has blown and that your
brakelamps may also not be functional.
DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE UNTIL
YOU VERIFY THAT THE BRAKELAMPS
check fuse 13 based on the attached diagram.
If this fuse is bad replace it. If it is not bad, blows again, or continues to be stuck in park then you need a new brake interlock switch that can be found on the brake pedal up underneath the dash.
