Lincoln No Shift From Park

Q. Hi I have a 1999 Lincoln with the 4.6 liter V-8. The is 113,000. I have a transmission After driving 20 minutes of in traffic and highway, I stopped the car in a lot for about an hour.

When I to drive off, I could not get the from P to R . The side knob not move. I tried with and park and foot brakes.

I turned off the engine and returned the key to the 1st (accessory) position, pressed the brake and pressed the side on the shifter. This time it and I was able to move to the shifter P to R to N . Then I was able to start the car and normally until I wanted to again. Whenever I select P . I to go through the same procedure.

This problem has not happened I had the transmission oil changed at 103,000 There are some other with the brain on this such as refusing to recognize the rear door being warning of low engine coolant plenty in the reservoir and displaying low pressure warning with all okay. These problems are but annoying.

The cruise has not worked for a while.

Is anything I can do (being an appliance tech) or is it a job for a dealer?


A. is a problem with the Shift System and not the transmission. Bet you’re to hear that. The Shift System requires the key to be in the RUN position and the pedal depressed in order to out of PARK.

This is to prevent possible runaway.

There are a couple of here. The first is the Brake Position (BPP) switch. You can tell if this is bad if you have no lights at all.

Another is a bad Shift Lock Actuator or lock solenoid, located the console.

First thing to do is check 28 and 32 in the fuse box, if you haven’t done so, and make sure are good.

To check the BPP switch, for power at the light green/red and green wires with a light with the key in the RUN position and the pedal depressed. If you have there, then check for at the light green wire at the Lock Actuator.

f you have power at the light wire at the Shift Lock ground the black wire. If you a click, then you have a bad and it needs to be repaired. If not, the Lock Actuator is bad and needs to be
