95 Bounder will shift out of park

Hey gang,
My bounder got me stuck for a few min at Christmas at the flying j. Would not shift out of park. I was able to start it. Have a friend roll under and shift into drive disconnected the linkage and safety switch to drive it home.

I have no break lights, checked the switch on the pedal it works. Ideas?

Go into your fuse panel and check the brake light fuse. If the fuse is good, check the light bulbs for brakes. I had the same problem and it was a fuse. Your manual should have a write up on it. The only thing I could figure was that I hit a bad bump and when I shut it down,I could not get it out of park. That happened on a 2014 Jayco Ford 450. Good luck.

Another thing you can try, (so they say) is to shut the engine off and put selector in neutral, start the engine and shift into drive. I did not think about this at the time it happened to me.

Just thought about something else, there is a relay along with the brake light switch( on mine anyway) it has a spring loaded plunger that may cause problems. Again good luck, report back when it's fixed so others will know the culpert.

That happened to me one on a 1995 Coachman. The brake light swith was bad. Not very expensive and easy to change. Same switch as in a pick up.
