Re: 95torus transmission

There is a shift interlock that prevents moving the shifter out of park
without applying the brakes.... If the fuse or brake light switch is
bad.........

The problem is most likely the brake light circuit, and caused by either a
bad switch or the wire into the switch connector breaking at the connector.

follow the arm up from the pedal and you'll see the switch assy straddle
the pin connecting the brake arm to the brake push rod.

tug the two wires in the harness, good chance one of them will come loose.
Remove just the connector to fix.

Otherwise to replace the switch, pull the 'hairpin' and slide the push rod
and switch to the end so that outer part of sw bracket clears the end, then
push up on the switch assy (other side of bracket is cut as a "U")

Mind the location of the spacer/washers.

To move the car, put the vehicle in neutral before turning the key to
"on" or "start". Start it and drive away normally.

Uh, Shawn,
The problem seems to be that the shift interlock is not releasing. It is not
"locked" until the key is in the RUN position. If the key is turned to the UNLOCKED
position, the shifter can then be moved to Neutral. The car can then be started and
driven normally. trainfan was telling him HOW to get it out of park with a
malfunctioning interlock.

Do you know me? While I've never called anyone names on usenet, and
won't, I came close today!

You know not of what you speak... believe me, my method will work.
Read s-l-o-w-l-y... to move the car, put the vehicle in neutral BEFORE
turning the key to "on" or "start"(this is done with the key in the
UNLOCK position). Start it and drive away normally.
