Re: Stuck In Park

Pop the small cover off that is beside the gear shift. If I remember right, you just push down with a small screwdriver and it will come out of park.

There is a Small Hole on the cover near the Shift Lever...and you obsolete correct if you insert a very small screwdriver, or a small punch..it should disengaged the Shift lever.

This release switch is activated from the Brake Switch...The Shift Release switch may need to be replace soon..

Tip: If you know what you are looking for...you can disable it.

Good Luck...

Re: Stuck In Park

Check and see if you have brake lights. If not check fuses.

Hi 6, sorry to hear about the loss of your loved one.

I went to https://www.fleet.ford.com/maintenan...ls/default.asp & accessed the owners manual and took a screenshot of the page.
