2003 Ford Windstar V6 will not shift out of park Turn-Key one click shift into neutral car will start and run but no brake lights tail lights or turn signals


Find the cause of no brake lights and the park lock will start working, it is powered by the brake light circuit.

Having two problems, wont start in park, have to put into neutral to start, also no brake lights, fuses are fine. Help please. 2001 ford windstar


Look at the top of your Brake pedal for a switch. It needs to send a signal for the brake lights and the release of the gearshift/starter solenoid lockout.

Drivers feet often move or break this switch and a good indication the problem is there is having no brake lights.

It is a bit odd that you can move the gearshift at all without the signal from the brake switch. The idea of having these extra parts is to prevent the van from starting without your foot on the brake or getting out of Park without your foot on the brake.

So you may have to fix more than just the brake switch. There may be a misalignment or broken part on the shifter lockout.

My car wont shift out of park


Check the brake pedal position sensor to see if it is lose or malfunctioning. Most late model cars will not allow you to move the gear shifter out of park unless the Brake Pedal is depressed and you are pushing a release button on the shifter. An emergency bypass on some cars will allow you to shift from park to Neutral with the CAR TURNED OFF and the key just turned to on. Try that also and if it allows you to move to Neutral you can start in neutral and then with brake held in you can shift back to Drive. If this doesn't work you may have an antitheft interlock preventing you from operating the shift lever or some linkage to release the shifter may have broken or come lose from a connector.

The shift is lock i need to know how to unlock it ??


you have shift solenoid fuse out or brake switch (If brake lights also don't work).

For emergency, turn igniton key to "OFF" position. The step on brake pedal and pull shifter out of park. Start car in neutral.
The next time you put it in park, you will have to repeat process. See process in owner manual.

Wild guess but the car will not start if it does not get the in "Park" or "Neutral" signal from the column switch. check for that it may just be so.
