Thanks for the information Will. My brake lights work but still replaced the switch. After I replaced the switch, I got it out of park several times. I thought things were good so I put the fuse panel back on and then it locked again. Brake lights are working. I adjusted the switch closer, further away, etc. It didn't help. I thought it might be a loose wire but didn't know how to test that except for moving them around. The TPS thing on the trottle is beyond my skill. I may go to Auto Zone to see if I can pin point things with an error code.
I fixed it, yeah! It wasn't the brake light switch though I learned how to change it so I have a new one. It was the #10 fuse. It amazes me that it was that simple. Thanks again to all who tried to help. I learned a lot.
I tried some of those Fuses that light up in 2005. They worked, and never had one blow. So I can not say that it worked as advertised. This was what enticed me into trying them at the time. I had trouble finding the link.
Recently I've been having issues with mine going into gear and I'm fairly certain that it's being caused by a faulty brake switch. I say this because I have no brake lights, fuse is good(checked it with a meter) and if I press on the brake multiple times in succession and push/release on the switches plunger, I can get it to go into gear. I already have the switch which only cost me $5.58 and plan to install it fairly soon. I'll post results when I'm finished.
Just thought I'd post an update. I finally did get around to replacing my brake switch earlier today and just as I suspected, replacing it did fix my problem. To anyone who needs to replace theirs, let me just say it's an easy job and replacement only took me about ten minutes.
Hello all - I'm having the same problem, but I have the check engine light on. Further, when driving, my transmission will not switch gears as it should, so when driving say 40mph the engine is sometimes reving at 4k rpms.
I can sometimes get it to switch up by quickly shifting to neutral, then back to drive.
earliest appointment I can get with a mech is about two weeks from now.
