Lincoln Repair Questions? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi Im David and thanks for visiting the site, The most common cause of this problem is a failed brake position switch which is located at the top of brake pedal. unplug switch and use a wire to jump red/white wire to red/light green wire. If it shifts out of park then replace brake switch. If that doesnt help the next step is to check power/grounds at shifter assembly if good replace.
it doesnt matter if you still have brake lights. it still is going to be the problem if it doesnt test like i wrote
Have you been able to test the switch yet?
you'd have to remove the center console to get the the entire assembly. im not sure if the solenoid is a replaceable part the entire assembly needs replaced. ill try to find out
to disable the overide switch?
there should be an override switvh you can press in and at the same time with the key in and foot on the brake pedal , you should be able to unlock the wheel
you want to remove the key cylinder?
Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose), my normal schedule online is around lunch and after dinner till early morning.
Use the link below.
Remove the shift lock actuator. You can now move what the actuator moves when it activates to allow shifting out of park.
Is this what you wanted to know.
