You first have to figure out which one of these wires goes to ground potential when the brake is engaged. Get a digital multimeter set it to read resistance (turn the dial to the omega symbol)and then connect one end to ground of the car try the outer ring of the 12 cigarette lighter and the other using the tip to pierce the insulation of one of the wires, then press the parking brake. The meter with the brake not pressed should have ---- when the break is pressed the meter should read 0000 or some value less then 1.000 ohm. The wire that goes to ground when the brake is pressed is the parking break wire and attach your DVD player brake wire to that. My money is on the solid green wire.

1998 Lincoln Town Car Signature. Parked it and now will not come out of park, and brake lights do not light up. Running lights, turn signals, hazards all work.


you have to press the brake pedal for your car to shift from park.what this does is actuate a solenoid on your steering column with the same electrical signal that lights your brake lights. since you have no brake lights either, all you have to do is replace the brake light fuse and you should be back in buisness.

I would suspect that the black is still ground and the red goes to the red from the bike and that the white is for brake switch when you press the pedal or lever. Hook it up that way and see what you get. Good luck.

My brake lights are not working at all. The fuses are not blown


Hi!!
Check the Brake Pedal Position Switch on top of the brake pedal, the Lt Green w/Red stripe wire should always have 12v+, when brake pedal is depressed the Lt Green wire should have 12v+ also, if no power on Lt. Green w/Red wire, check fuse # 2 20A, if no power on Lt. Green wire when pedal depressed, REPLACE Switch, If there is power on both wires when pedal is depressed, check IVD STOP LAMP RELAY on the Aux. Relay Box 1 located at the Left Front of the Engine Compartment.
Good Luck!! A HELPFUL - 4 THUMBS - rating for this solution would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for using FixYa.

Sounds like the "shift lock actuator". It's a common Ford/Lincoln problem. It's basically a safety device to ensure the car is turned on and your foot is on the brake b/4 you can place the car into gear. Here is a gr8 piece describing the problem
" This is a problem with the Shift Interlock System and not the transmission. Bet you're glad to hear that. The Shift Interlock System requires the key to be in the "RUN" position and the brake pedal depressed in order to shift out of "PARK". This is to prevent possible vehicle runaway. There are a couple of possibilities here. The first is the Brake Pedal Position (BPP) switch. You can usually tell if this is bad if you have no brake lights at all. Another possibility is a bad Shift Lock Actuator or Shift lock solenoid, located under the console.
First thing to do is check fuses 28 and 32 in the fuse box, if you haven't already done so, and make sure they are good.
78584194.gif To check the BPP switch, check for power at the light green/red and light green wires with a test light with the key in the "RUN" position and the brake pedal depressed. If you have power there, then check for power at the light green wire at the Shift Lock Actuator.
78185284.gif f you have power at the light green wire at the Shift Lock Actuator, ground the black wire. If you hear a click, then you have a bad ground and it needs to be repaired. If not, the Shift Lock Actuator is bad and needs to be replaced."

I hope this give you a better understanding and I wish you the best of luck with your problem.

1999 Lincoln Town Car shifter stuck in park


Look at the swith on the brake pedal, it shoud have two green wires on it. Make sure it is not melted or the wire is broken. If it is damaged you can connect the 2 wires together to get it into gear, but this should be temporary as it bypasses the neutral safety switch.

Check the wires and connector at the brake pedal switch. These wies have a tendency to break, This will cause no brake lights amd not allow the shift interlock to function

Parking Brake wire on Jensen VM9311TS


It may need to see a Positive....not a ground (the brake wire rests at ground and goes positive when the pedal is pressed). but to answer your question, the brake wire for your car is Light Green and is at the brake switch above the pedal.
