Unhappy Mustang 2012 does not launch after accident [details inside]

The car has been crashed, it does not launch. Fuel pump is working because I can hear it. New battery. Started does not seem to work aswell. After the ignition I can't change Parking mode to any other. Did you similiar problem or know possible solution?

I think you might have a fuse that has blown,if you look in the owners book you will see where there is a strip you can lift up using a screwdriver to manually get out of park,that fuse might control other things as well,check it out and keep us posted.Good luck and welcome to the group.

Thanks!

I am pretty aware I could change the mode manually, althought it doesnt bring me closer to starting the vehicle

I know the older Mustangs have a switch in the trunk for when the car is in a wreak it kills fuel flow. I would imagine it is on these as well. It is called the fuel pump reset switch or something like that.

No brake lights and the car will not leave park either.
I would go down the line and make sure all the fuses are good since there are fuses for the engine controls and engine management.

The inertia switch should be located just forward of the hood latch release lever behind the driver's side kick panel. Same location on my '14. You don't have to remove the panel. There is a finger hole for access.

I believe they've been there since 2005. My Crown Vic has it located in the trunk, just behind the felt lining on the driver's side also.

The pump is working just fine because I have replaced it with brand new one. Problem is when I'm holding brake down, even though stop lights lit up, there is no startup a no possibility to change the gear mode

Must be a blown fuse like others have said. You should hear a 'click' sound (if you have an automatic transmission) when you push in the brake pedal. That's the sound of the safety neutral switch, so you can move the shifter. I still think you have a blown fuse or some electrical problem going on .

Apparently the gearbox was damaged while crash happened. Engine was backed off, the shifter was stuck on Parking mode althought when we managed to start the engine it was actually on reverse no matter what. It appeared that gearbox cable was loose and it caused all the problems. You can't start the engine on the reverse so we had to improvise on that. Thanks for the suggestions though!

Sounds like you got it all figured out. Nice and glad you are back on the road or headed that way now. Diagnosing cars online is tough and especially in unique situations like accidents or barn finds where unusual things can happen.
