Check for a faulty light control module or a faulty light relay

I think you replaced battery BECAUSE parking lights staying on and probably drained the battery. Sounds like a faulty headlight switch

My 95 Ford thunderbird is locked in park and the brake lights are not coming when i hit the brake, i've changed all the fuses and still nothing what else can i do?

Sounds like you need to replace the brake light switch "just above the pedal". It also commands the park lock solenoid to release.

Parking lights stay on

So they stay on until your battery goes dead? If it's just the parking lights. I would probably start by checking at the back of the headlight switch to see if it's switching the parking light output off. There is also a Parking LP relay in the underhood fuse block. You might want to swap another like relay in for it and see if it fixes it. There are probably more relays in that block just like it that you can use to try.

Actually starting at the relay would be easiest. The park lamp on switch signal at your headlight switch should be the gray/black wire in pin 2 of the connector

2005 Lincoln Aviator

On my 2004 Aviator, the indicator was lit all the time, and it did kill the battery if I didn't drive it every day. The dealer stated it should only remain lit for 20 minutes, and replaced the shift assembly. Sounds like they shortened the illumination time to 10 minutes.

Check the fuses in the fuse box under the hood. Then check fuseable links. Transmission in park. There is a cable that runs from the shifter under the shifter console to the shift lever on the transmission. The cable my be broken inside the cable housing just before it comes out of the housing. I repaired this same problem on a friends '89 Tbird. Be sure you align the new cable correctly.
I went to a pick-your-own-parts wrecking yard. To learn how to take it apart. To take the shifter knob off. Push in the button on the side of the knob. Then from the underside of the knob hit hard with the **** of your palm.
