- BRAKE SHIFT INTERLOCK

2000 Ford Focus

Above car, 85,000mi; 2L engine

My brake shift interlock is not functioning. The brake lights work and I tried replacing the brake light switch that is actuated by the brake pedal. The only way I can shift out of park is to insert a popcicle stick into the manual interlock access hole. Is there an electronic interlock relay or fuse that needs replaced, or is it the interlock switch on the floor shifter? I checked all of the fuses in the passenger compartment fuse panel (all looked good).

Thanks for your help!

I'm thinking if you have a floor shift, the interlock assembly is integral to the shift cable and must be replaced as an assembly, column shift can be replaced seperately
