Why is our 94 F-150 stuck in park

Asked by Feb 21, 2016 at 05:33 PM about the 1994 Ford F-150

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Our 94 F-150 with a 302 & 4 speed automatic stuck in park yesterday. I've found by disconnecting the battery I can move the shift lever to all positions. Reconnect the battery and the shift lever locks. Brake lights are inoperable. Brake fuse is good and brake light bulbs are good. I considered replacing the neutral safety switch thinking it was defective and the cause. Parts store employee advised this is common with Ford products and there is a recall. Does anyone know how to diagnose this or is it a job for the Ford dealership?

Could also be the brake pedal switch. Specially with those lights not working too

Tested the switch, checked out with an ohm meter and have good continuity.

No, Unsure where to find it. Is it on the forward end of the master cylinder?

Check fuses, it might've went into safety mode. Check warning lights

Found a defective brake lite fuse. We now need to locate the short or determine if the fuse simply died because of age. it looks to be the original fuse.
