hello, you put a new topper on the truck and now the shifter wont come out of park? Did the new topper have a brake lamp to hook up or have you messed with any of the lighting on the truck? Do all the brake lights work when you depress the brake pedal?

The brake lights work but the 3 brake light does not ?
Ford Mechanic: HDGENE, Ford Senior Master/Diesel/Trans replied 1 year ago

The 3rd brake light on the cab or the one on the new top? Do you hear a click when you depress the brake on the shifter?

Then the shifter should move out of park since the main truck lights are working, the third brake light works directly off the stop lamp switch though, if you messed with any of this wiring, this is the area to inspect first for proper connection.

Okay , I'll start with that and see what I can find....Thank you for your help
Ford Mechanic: HDGENE, Ford Senior Master/Diesel/Trans replied 1 year ago

You are welcome, if you need more help or information please let me know. If I was helpful please leave a positive rating, if the wiring got cut or not a good contact this will cause the third stop lamp not to work, but if you hear the shift interlock solenoid click, the shifter should move, so make sure all this wiring is intact first before bringing it to a dealer under warranty. or they will charge you for any repairs if they can prove it was due to something you did.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
