You mean the shift lever cannot be moved from the park position, or the shifter moves, but the transmission doesn't actually shift into gear?

If you can't move it from the park position, my guess is that the safety interlock that forces you to step on the brake before moving it from the park position has failed. I believe there's a solenoid in there that controls that, but I'm honestly not entirely sure. Hopefully someone with more expertise on the newer cars will chime in.

ok, we figured out the shifting issue, but now his brake lights and hazards don't work, we checked all of the fuses, they seem to be fine....his headlights work and his turn signals work like normal. also, his dashboard lights don't work...any ideas??

thanks

how did you fix the shift problem. My 96 did the same thing and i found a bolt came loose and had fallen out from the steering collum. I put the car in park, put the bolt back in and all is well now

Does that car have a multifunction switch? Also, when you say the turn signals work, does that mean front/back? Also, what changed that the shifter works now? I have a feeling that the first responder was correct with the brake light switch. For my dad's grand marquis, the problem was that the wires came out of the connector.
