Odd problem.
Today I got in my l200 to go to store. Would not shift out of park and no brake lights so I figured I would turn it off then back on to see if that helped. No luck, Go to next step to see if fuse blew. Fuse looked and tested good with test light and multimeter. put fuse back in no joy. Replaced with new fuse problem solved. Put old fuse back in everything is fine.
My guess is corrosion on connections of fuse or in fuse panel. Any thoughts on this?

[FONT="Palatino Linotype"][SIZE="3"]Does "everything is fine" mean that the brake lights are functioning normally along with being able to shift out of park? If so then what you've posited is a reasonable possibility. I had the stop light switch fail on me some months ago and that resulted in the Brake/Transmission Shift-Interlock solenoid not releasing and locking the gear selector in park. (Prior to replacing the switch I looked through and examined the fuse as well.) Food for thought...perhaps a future concern.

FWIW, I had to get the stop light switch from AutoZone. Since it was a non-stocking part it was ordered from their warehouse, but it came the next morning. That was very helpful. While not my preferred place to go for parts, what was sold to me works and was much less expensive than O'Reilly's.

I'm glad that you got the car going again without any additional expense involved![/SIZE][/FONT]

Yes lights work and it shifts out of park.
