1995 Crown Victoria - shifting out of park

I have a 1995 Ford Crown Victoria. If I start the car in Park, it will not shift. IF I start the car in neutral, I can shift gears with no problems. In conjunction, the turn signals work well, but I have no brake lights. What is wrong… how can I get this fixed?

At the top of your brake pedal is a switch that indicates if the pedal is being pressed down. Chances are that you need to adjust or replace this switch.
