2000 Ford Taurus Question: My gear shift is stuck in park. What is causing that?

My car has been running fine. Then yesterday when I went to leave work, I tried to put it into reverse and there was a lot of play in my gear stick. No matter where I put the gear stick, my car would start which told me it was stuck in park. -
Answer 1
most common failure for this concern is the brake switch on the pedal.have someone check to see if the brake lights come on when pressing the pedal.if they do not I would start diagnosis at the switch.check for power in and out of it while pressing the pedal. -
