Sounds like the brake shift interlock is not working. you need to press down on the brake to be able to move the shifter out of park. if that system is defective, it wont let you shift out of park. look at the center console 9if it has one) is there a slot that looks like you could slide your ignition key into? if there is try inserting your key into this slot and with your foot on the brake move the shifter into neutral. put the key in the ignition and it should now be able to start and shift into drive and reverse. but if you go back to park it will lock up again. i would bring it to the garage for a repair of this system (may need adjusting, may need replacing, but they would be able to diagnose and repair)

I have a 1994 mercury cougar that won't shift out of park. the brake lights do work. please help


This is wiring for shift interlock. Some makes and models have a bypass button close to shifter in order to bypass shift interlock. I don't know if your vehicle has that button or not? I looked at info for 6 cylinder.

1997 Mercury Cougar XR7. I have a wire clip that is broke to my ignition assembly. where do the wires go on the assembly of the ignition?


My standard for most of these type of questions is that you should purchse a haynes or chiltons manuel for your vehicle. I will have instructions and diagrams as well as tips to help you do your job, I bought mine on ebay for 17.50.
