The neutral safety switch needs to be adjusted so that it is properly aligned. You'll need to refer to a shop manual to get specifics. It shouldn't be very difficult to do yourself, but it might cost a bit if you have someone do it for you. They're all a little different, so the only way to get accurate information is to refer to a shop manual or see if the dealership will copy the page from their manual for you.

2002 S430 Mercedes Benz will not move of out park?

Most likely cause is that you have a bad shifter module, which is the shifter itself. I've seen lots of these, try and play with the shifter to get it out of park, and make sure you have the brake pedal depressed. If you can get it out of park take it to a repair shop this way, and leave the shifter in neutral if you have to turn the car off, that way you can still start the car, and still move the shift lever to drive.

My 94 mercury grand marquis will not shift into gear after I start the engine Can you help?

If you mean the shifter is locked in park, then check the sensor on the brake pedal. Also, if you just turn the key to the first position, with the engine off, you will be able to put the shifter into neutral and start the engine from there. Then just slip it into reverse or drive.It will still go into park after.

How do you know if your fuel pressure regulator for your 1997 Mercury Villager is faulty?

Tires perhaps? My 95 Villager would start vibrating right around 70 mph. When I replaced my rear tires the problem went away. The tire tech said that one of the belts had snapped in the tire. It runs great now.
