I can't get the car out of park.

Asked by Jul 23, 2014 at 11:46 AM about the 2000 Lincoln LS V8

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1999 Lincoln starts but I can move the shift lever into any gear.

1 Answer

Check your brake light fuse. See if brake lights work. If that fuse blows the shift interlock will prevent it from coming out of Park. If fuse is good, could be brake light switch on pedal
