I have a 93 3L taurus. The transmission lock, where you have to press
on the brake pedal to unlock the transmission is acting up [hard to
unlock, Is this an adjustment, or switch [mechanical or electric] on
I had the same problem, check your brake lights, if they don't go on the
solenoid won't release the shift lever. You probably need a new brake
switch, it is not expensive, your local auto parts store should have one.
When you replace the switch, you'll find the hardest part is worming
yourself under the dash. Remove the red pin holding the switch on the brake
and pull the switch out about an inch, and the swing the switch down.
Replace with the new switch.
