I replaced the brake light switch and I still have no brake lights and I still can't get out of park. Can anyone tell me what else could be wrong.
There's a shifter release solenoid that works with the brake light switch. This is tge device that prevents you from shifting out of park until the brake pedal is pressed. It's located on the lower end of the steering column. Check the wiring and connections there. HTH. -Jim
Thank you for your response, I really appreciate it, I will check this out. Thanks again, Spudsey1
You're welcome. Glad to help. -Jim
Happened to me twice. The wire broke going to the brake light switch. It's pretty stiff wire, so I spliced in a bit of regular stranded wire, and a new spade terminal.Also check the solonoid and it's wires, as Jim said.
You can get it out park turning the past lock position (DO NOT TURN FAR ENOUGH WHERE DASH LIGHTS COME OIL, TEMP ETC) pull it out of park put it in neutral and then you can start it and drive it----- BUT YOU STILL HAVE NO BRAKE LIGHTS-----one way to get it to repair shop if need it's called a park shift interlock or solenoid.
