BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH

1987 Ford Station Wagon

1987 Ford Station Wagon 6 cyl 130000 miles

Mom of 4 teenagers, the kids called to say the car would not go into gear. Was able to bypass this problem to at least get it home thanks to this site by putting the key in forward postion and putting it in neutral then in drive to get it home, on the way home I also noticed they had no brake lights. After checking this site again, I was able to see that it had to do with the brake light switch. When I checked the brake light switch it had a wire disconnected, just one, so I put it back in with the other wires and then the gears worked again!I was so happy BUT then I noticed the brake lights were on all the time so I took it back out. It was not in real well anyway SO.I was wondering if anyone had any ideas, I really do not know anything about cars. But you never know if it is something simple and so far so good.I think. Thanks
