04 f250 gear selector release switch

Well the switch that is mounted to the brake pedal that allows you to shift out of park only while applying the brake has begun to annoy me. Currently I have to reach up under the dash and lift up on the sensor housing to get it to release the lock. At first it would only happen once in a while but now it is everytime. I am going to pull it out and spray it good with some electronics cleaner soon, but I was just curious how many other people have had this problem with their trucks.

It happens often. Mine was actually blowing the fuse that controls that switch. It ended up being the cruise contol. Another problem some have run into are some of the bolts that hold the steering shaft down are coming loose and create similar issues. You have to take the column covers off to see those bolts tho, and when or if you check them it is also a good time to check the wire that come from the shifter od button. They are know to short out where they come out of the shifter.
