You don't mention what year of Mercury Grand Marquis but the owners

manual will explain what to do if the transmission gear shift lever will not

shift out of ( P / PARK ) with the brake pedal depressed ( it has what Ford

calls the " brake shift interlock " )

As of August 6 , 2012 you can still view the Mercury Grand Marquis owners

manual online ( back to the 1996 model ) at :
