1999 Ford Escort
My car will not go into gear when the brake is depressed. This has happened a few times in the past, but it always eventually went into gear. It will no longer go into gear. I pulled the two switches attached to the brake pedal, one has power and the other doesn't. I assume the one without power is for the cruise control shut off. Both switches appear to be operative (both have continuity when depressed). I took the console mounted gear shifter handle apart and all appears to be in fine operating shape. I don't know where the other end of the switch terminates at the transmission. Does this sound like an electrical problem or a problem in the transmission itself?
