Why wont your ford van shifter go into reverse or drive?

Check and see if you have brake lights - If there are no brake lights then your shifter release solenoid will not release the shifter, it will be stuck in park. If this has happened then please check the wiring on the brake light switch which is located on the brake pedal. You will probably find a broken wire.

Why would your brake lights and right turn signal not work and you have to turn the key half way to start the car in neutral so you will be able to change gears to drive on a 1992 Grand Marquis?

Check fuses, If brake lights do not work, transmission will not shift out of park. Brake light circuit is common to shift interlock. That's why you must step on brake to release interlock prior to shifting out of "Park" If stop lights are not working interlock will not release.

What would cause the fuse for the brake lights to blow every time you put the car in drive?

Check the circuitry to the backup lights. The same fused circuit is probably used for both brake lights and backup lights. As you go past Reverse, the backup light probably is turned on briefly, causing the fuse to blow. It's just a thought, but I'd think it worth checking.
