The brake light switch at your pedal is defective, or more likely, the wire at the connector broke or came loose. If you need to move it in an emergency, turn off the car, place it in neutral, and start it. Mind you that you still will not have brake lights. The switch is an easy fix.

2003 Ford Mustang won't shift out of park


Could be the brake switch, or the shift lock solenoid.
Both components would need to be tested. And you may be able to shift out of park if you try before you turn the key switch to the on position.

My 98 ford mustang is stuck in park


check fuses for brake shift solenoid. the brake pedal position switch is a fuse under the hood. inside the passenger compartment, check every fuse. that's a start for not having more information.

SOUNDS LIKE SHIFT INTERLOCK SOLENOID IS STUCK. TRY GIVING A FEW HITS AND PUSH ON AND OFF ON BRAKE PEDAL AND SEE IF YOU CAN FREE IT UP. JAR IT AROUND A BIT LIKE TRYING TO WIGGLE IT OUT WHICLE PUSHING ON AND OFF ON BRAKE PEDAL SEVERL TIMES. DO YOU HEAR A CLICK IN CENTER CONSOLE WHEN PUSHING BRAKE?

Brake lights don't work


Check the switch on the brake pedal. They go bad from time to time and are usually cheap to replace.

Where is the neutral safety switch on a 97 Mustang?


The neutral safety switch just allows you to start the car in only park and neutral. you may have a linkage problem, or something wrong with your tranny.
