1993 Taurus wagon - gear shift

Today I started having trouble with my gear shift (automatic) Locking in
Park.

When I press down the brake pedal many times it will release the gear shift.

Can someone tell me if this is a sensor or an electrical part?

What is causing this to happen and what can I do fix it.

Please help - it's driving me up the wall.

Thanks in advance.

Eric

It could be the brake switch on the pedal bracket or the soleniod in the
column OR wiring in between. Check the brake switch first cause its easier
to get to. A good shot of lube might be all that is needed if its the
solenoid. It is possible its a cable driven release but I don't think so on
the Taurus. It is also possible its a solenoid with a cable too in which
case lubing the cable would help alot.

from brake pedal, look up pedal arm to find the switch... often the wire
into switch breaks.

you'll know it's the switch if your brake lights are also intermittent
