Ford van E350 gear stuck in PARK!

Asked by Apr 20, 2015 at 12:47 AM about the 1998 Ford E-350

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1998 Ford E350.
Today after attempting to fix the
break lights that weren't turning on, I
tried to drive my van and it would not
let me gear out of Park. I researched
about it and found out it could be the
break light switch (the one by the
break pedal). I bought a brand new
one and it still won't allow me to shift
out of Park. All the fuses look good,
but my break lights aren't working.
Please help

There is a lock-out function to keep the lever from shifting unless you step on the brakes- did you mess around with this?

Yes, I did mess around with the sensor by the pedal. That's when I got my break light to work earlier

Right after I messed with it, my shifter locked in place, and my break lights went out. I did change that pedal sensor with a new one, but it still didn't work. Someone told me about fuses under the hood, could that be it?
