Question about 1996 Mercury Grand Marquis
My 96 Grand Marquis acted up a few times like hard to get out of Park.
did this 2 or 3 times and now it's stuck good.
called my mechanic and he said there's a manual override to get it to at least go into a gear.
I can then bring him the car, he said there's a wire or a cable that gets worn out or stetched too much.
I can't find my owner's manual, so any asisstance is appreciated.

The park lock mechanism is deactivated by the brake switch. Check to make sure the brake lights are working before any other repairs are made. When the key is in the on position and you depress the brake pedal it allows you to take the car out of park. One can usually turn the key one click and not have power to the park lock mechanism. Then depress the brake pedal and put the car in neutral. With your foot on the brake pedal you can start the car and drive normal but when you put the car in park the process will have to be repeated. Often times one of the wires to the brake light switch on the brake pedal gets brittle and causes intermittent contact or no contact. Check this first.
