1998 Mercury Sable 6 cyl Two Wheel Drive Automatic 130000 miles
My brake lights stopped working last night and at that point the car would no longer shift out of park when the car is started. There is a switch clipped to the brake pedal (white switch attached to a small plunger going into a small white box that has an attaching black wire ) that seems to control when the brake lights activate. What is this switch and can it affect the shift in someway whereas if the brake lights are not activated, prevention of shifting out of park occurs?
have the same problem?
