Why is everyone so hostile!!..lol almost funny. Anyway, i'm not sure on the fords, I know Chevy was setup to where you turn your key to the first position and you could shift out of park. Never tried it on a Ford

I tried to give good advice because I hate searching and reading pointless threads that get you no where. When people chime in and shoot from the hip it's very irritating to someone looking for a solid answer. An equation for my hostility!

That sounds like a damn complicated fix. I think this will inspire me to get one of those rescue batteries or something you plug into the acc power. Better that than screwing with the linkage, IMO.

Would something like a rescue battery have helped here?

Yes, I found myself wishing I had one!

I just put jumper cables on for enough power to shift out of park. Why do things the hard way.
