Q: I want to know if the bsi (brake shift lock) would cause know brake lights on 2005 Ford Explorer

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
I've check fuses replaced brake light switch on peddle. I still have know brake lights and won't come out park unless I use override switch. I'm going to replace bsi hoping will correct both shifting and brake light problem. Thanks, Kriz

NO, the shift lock is NOT the problem with the brake lights! You have missed the bad (open) fuse or there is a wiring problem to the brake light switch. Check for voltage going to the switch and coming out of the switch, or have it checked. Fix the lights and that will/should fix the shifter as well.
is there power at the stoplamp switch? have you checked the bulbs? does 3rd brakelamp come on? glad you got it fixed
