Having problems with your 1996 Lincoln Mark VIII ?
I have a 1997 Lincoln Mark VIII. The button that you have to push in on the gear shift lever is frozen and we can't get it out of park. Need ideas on what causes this. Hate to take it into a dealer and pay big bucks if it is something simple that we can fix ourselves. Also the one time that we were able to engage the gear shift into reverse it did not release the auto emergency brake release. Another problem we have is the automatic seat adjustment motor runs but the seat no longer mover forward
Make sure brake lights work, if they dont the switch may be bad, not allowing you to pull out of park. check fuses also. if the seat motor runs, check if the cable has come loose.
The brake switch is bad. They usually don't run that much ( about 20 bucks) and you can replace it yourself
