Having problems with your 1996 Ford Windstar ?

Hi, I have a 96 windstar. One of the wires on the brake light switch down at the brake pedal has broke at the plug and then when I went to repair it touched the steering bar and sparks flew. Once I repaired the wire I still had no brake lights and couldnt shift out of park. I then checked all the fuses and changed two blown ones, I dont know what they were because the cover is missing and none of the fuses are marked. But still same problem. I then checked the power to switch and there is none.

\012Maybe you blew solid state module. There is a manual bypass.

\012Shift Interlock System \012\012A shift interlock mechanism prevents shifting the transaxle out of the PARK position unless the brake pedal (2455) is applied. The shift lock actuator is energized when the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position. \012

  • This locks the shifter in the PARK position. \012
  • When the brake pedal is applied and the stoplight switch (13480) is activated, the shift lock actuator is deactivated and the shifter can be moved out of the PARK position.
