How do I put a 99 Chevy Venture van into neutral column shifter and I do not have an ignition key is there a neutral bypass switch like if I had a center console shifter

There is often a safety interlock that is disabled by switching on the ignition and pressing the brake pedal.

As there is no key it will be necessary to energise the vehicle electrics manually using a jumper lead or similar.

Breaklightes wont work

It is most likely the problem is with the brake light switch above the brake pedal arm. Check for power there with a 12 volt test light. Without the brake pedal pressed one side of the switch will light the test light, when the brake pedal is depressed both sides of the switch connector will be hot. Let me know what you find. You can buy a 12 volt test light at any auto parts store for about $5

99 rav-4 wont come out of park

check to see if you blew a fuse your rav-4 has a switch that when you press on the brake it allows you to switch out of park but without pressing the brake you can't switch out off park. There should be an abs fuse or brake fuse or something of that order check it. Hopes it helps.

Yukon brake light

You have power at the fuse. The brake light switch has two wires on it, one is the supply from the fuse the other is to the lights, Check for volts at the switch (yes), bridge the two wires then follow the wiring checking for a live. Start at a light and work your way back up the loom checking all connecting sockets, has the vehicle a trailer socket, check the multi-plug where it picks up the wiring.

My peugoeut 206 brake lights come on as soon as i turn on the ignition

You need to test the "BOO" switch that controls the brake lights, it is located above the brake pedal and the brake pedal arm opens and closes the switch. It of course should be an open circuit with 12 volts at one contact without the application of the brake pedal and a closed circuit with the pedal pressed down (12 volts in and out), Adjust or replace the switch as the testing dictates.

99 chevy venture i have no tail lights, no turn signle lights, or brake lights, do i have bad turn switch?

It sounds like a bad connection on the rear wire harness. Check all your connections working forwards from the rear light system.

2004 chevy venture will not shift from park. The engine is running and the brake pedal is pressed.

The blocking bracket might be jammed. Stop the engine, nudge the car a little and try again to move the lever without pressing the brake pedal. 
If this works move the lever several times to loosen the bracket, leave it in neutral, press the brake pedal  and start the engine. Leave it running at idle for a while , till the oil heats up - 5-10 minutes , depending how cold is outside. Then repeat the lever movement till the efort becomes neglijable. If it doesn't or jams again take the car to the repair shop, it needs tinkering.

99 ACCORD BRAKE LIGHTS

ok well you start with the most common, obvious, and easiest to repair.
1. fuse
2. bulbs
3. bad relay
4. bad switch
5. open circuit
6. short
This is the best order to diagnose your problem with. not sure how electricly savy you are but my first test would be to check for voltage at the bulb. Get yourself a voltmeter, a test light might work but a volt meter can give you the exact reading. unplug the harness from the bulb or vise versa, have someone hold the brake down, stick your diodes into the terminals of the harness and get your reading. if no voltage pull some fuses... still nothin, my moneys on the wires...
