ford 2016 450 stuck in park

We have 1000 miles on our RV have not taken a trip yet and can not get it out of park. Was told it could be the brake shift interlock. We know it must be repaired but don't want it towed. First we were told it is under the black plate under the steering column (below ignition), then in front of it the lick plate which I believe is the long strip of dash behind the steering wheel and above the brake - we are totally confused. If it is the lower panel, we can find the screws to remove it. thanks, we are frustrated new RV'ers.

Do you have battery power?
Key on?
Do the brake lights work?

I assume you are pushing the brake?

Did you try turning the wheel fully one way or the other. It might possibly be jammed. Especially if against a stop or something.

Both cheap checks

Yes - we are pushing the brake and the wheels turn. We drove it home from the dealer and this was the first time we were going to use it.

My immediate thought. Turn the wheel and while holding it turned, see if it will shift.

Is it very easy to get to and release the brake shift interlock, or not something we should not attempt?

You can google it. I did. I assume it is column shift? Or floor ?

One more thing...is it on a hill? That could jam the park lock in the transmission.

We have a Sunseeker E450 and this same thing happened earlier this summer. All the dash indicators were lit up, I don't believe any lights worked on the outside, pushing in the brake before shifting was not the issue, the wheel was not locked, the gear shift was completely frozen.

After reading on here and other places I found one fuse under the steering wheel. It was the 'Brake Shift Interlock' location #5. I pulled the fuse and re-seated/re-installed it, the same fuse and everything worked again.

I really hope this works for you as I remember how frustrating this was.

Thanks when we pushed the brake the lights did go on, I will check the fuse so basically it is just remove it and reset it? Is there something to check to see if the fuse is bad. Appreciate the help

If it is a blade fuse you can see the element in between the metal lugs sticking out. Looks like a squiggly thing in the plastic housing. If it is bad, the metal will be gone or broken.

Yes, remove it and re-seat it. The fuse wasn't actually bad in our situation, it just required a "re-seat" in the fuse box.

I just bought a 2016 F350 and we have that complimentary Ford road service plan, as do you, I assume. Call a Ford dealer and tell them to come fix it.

Location of brake shift interlock location

On the 2016 450 is the location under the ignition plate with 2 screws or is it the kick plate that is under the dash above the brake?
