1998 Mustang-Won't go into gear

I have a 1998 mustang automatic transmission, that I can not get to go into gear. You turn the car on and the headlights work. The turn signals, dash lights, or brake lights do not work, plus the car will not go into gear. Any ideas on what the problem could be and how i can fix it.

Thanks!!

hmm that's a tough one. As far as the non working lights go have you checked the fuses to see if one is blown? Have you checked to see if the bulbs are blown as well? the turnsignals not working could also be caused by a faulty flasher unit or the multi-function switch could be broken. Have you checked your transmission fluid? I'm not to sure what the transmission issue is but good luck figuring it out. There's a lot of knowledgeable people on here who should be able to help.

Good luck

Is that an AODE and if it is get under there, find the electrical connection that feeds the tranny and make sure it's securely fastened to the trans.

'95, white convertable, auto trans, under drive pulley, cai, 3:73 gear. Just enough snap for a 62 year old kid! (my wife's a blond so the top MUST be down, or she won't get in!!)

If your brake lights don't work then you won't be able to get it out of park. I know there is a solenoid on my 97 that requires current from the brake switch before it will allow you to take it out of park. That is more than likely why it won't go into gear. If all of those lights go out I would think Fuse. If they share a common ground that could be an issue also. A wiring diagram can be found on AutoZone's website.
