The wire goes through the gear shifter and comes out the bottom under the rubber flex on the column, the wire tends to break there( orange covered wire} . You can try to fix it or replace shifter arm, there is a disconnect on the left side of column you will need to remove plastic cover upper and lower pieces they pry apart. Trace orange wire back to disconnect.

    You also need to remove tilt wheel lever by pulling straight out, its hard to pull off.

    Disconnect is back under bunch of wires.

1995 ford windstar will not shift out of park


Check your brake lights to see if they work. The shift interlock works off of the brake light circuit. If the brake lights don't work it could be the brake light fuse, the brake pedal switch. Check fuses #21 and #27 in the fuse panel under the dash.

If the fuses are good and the brake lights work, then the shift interlock solenoid has a problem.
A work-around for this is to turn the key toward the "On" position just enough to unlock the steering wheel, but not far enough to light up the lights in the dash. Then shift the shifter into neutral to start. This will get you to a shop without towing.

My chevy silverado 2000 tow haul wont work, light wont come on at all


check all your fuses. If your lucky you might find one the is blown and could be related If not fuse related then you need to remove the platic steering column cover. Under there at the end of the shift lever you will find two small wires that are for the tow haul button. These wires get brittle and break over time from shift level movement it seems. You will have to repair the broken wire and you should be good to go!

My tow haul option is not working on my 2001


You are talking about the trailer option button on the end of the shift select lever ?
I would say a fuse, check there first, and there is also a relay.
As far as I can tell all this switch does is take the tranny out of overdrive, which you can do with shift lever manualy.
If you do not find the problem, you may have to replace the switch.

Car wont shift out of park and blower motor quit.


Fuse #23 controls the turn signals, heater blower, reverse lamps, and the shift lever solenoid. There is a hole in the right side of the console where you can poke around with a ball point pen and unlock the shift lever. The fuse is located in a panel behind the glove box. I took my car to a dealer and had them change the fuse, but the ball point pen trick will save you a tow job.
