gear shift stuck on 1997 Mercury Cougar

gear shift lever stuck in park where is the emergency release button

Asked by for the 1997 Mercury Cougar
There is no emergency release button; rather turn the key to the notch prior to the on position (before the dash lights come on...), and you will be able to release it there.

Don't forget to check your brake lights -- they probably don't work either! You likely have a brake light switch fault or wiring connector issue at the switch.
