My 1996 Mercury Villager runs well, but has a very annoying problem in the winter. I live in Michigan and after sitting all night out in the cold, it starts fine, but is stuck in park. The owners manual gives a note that states the fuse might be blown, and your brake lights are also not working when this happens... Not my case... brake lights and fuses are fine... there solution to getting it out of park does not work. What does work is to let the vehicle run for about 10 minutes and then surprise! It now releases from Park!! Yes I have my foot on the brake... I have had the brake lines completely flushed as per one mechanics suggestion. I have had it suggested by one person that the check valve near the power booster may not be working correctly?? Or that there is a vacuum leak in or near the power booster??? We like the van otherwise (minus a few electrical quirks -- usually the stuff made by Ford..) This problem of being stuck in park only happens in the cold weather.... Never in warm weather.. Anybody know how to fix this?? Suggestions appreciated.
