Brake-shift interlock

Brake-shift interlock  - Driving - Lincoln MKS Owners Manual - Lincoln MKS

This vehicle is equipped with a brake-shift interlock feature that prevents the gearshift lever from being moved from P (Park) when the ignition is in the on position unless the brake pedal is applied. If you cannot move the gearshift lever out of P (Park) when the ignition is on and the brake pedal applied, it is possible that a fuse has blown or the vehicle’s brake lamps are not operating properly. Refer to Fuses and relays in the Roadside Emergencies chapter.

If the fuse is not blown and the brake lamps are working properly, you will need to have your vehicle towed to an authorized dealer.

WARNING: Do not drive your vehicle until you verify that the brake lamps are working.

WARNING: Always set the parking brake fully and make sure the gearshift lever is latched in P (Park). Switch the ignition to off and remove the key whenever you leave your vehicle.

WARNING: If the parking brake is fully released, but the brake warning lamp remains illuminated, the brakes may not be working properly. See your authorized dealer.
