Default xyz switch

I have a 1999 disco II. My wife was driving it (first mistake). She said she was at a store, finished up and the truck shifted hard into drive. She got to her next appointment and the truck would not go into park. She tried starting it and it went into park but now will not come out of park. It will not start. I checked the battery and it is good. Just in case I took a brand new battery along and put it in and have the same problem. I checked the brake switch on the pedal and still nothing. I checked the brake lights and there are none. Could it be the XYZ switch? I thought it might be the starter, but because it will not come out of park I guessed that was not the problem. Where should I start? I called the dealership and they said it sounds like the xyz but it would cost about $800.00 to test it.
help!!

On my 2003, it turned out to be the brake light switch that caused the stuck in park problem.

I don't believe the xyz switch would affect your brake lights. I would recheck your brake switch.

Default the switch

I have the original switch and a replacement. How do i check them? Am I just looking for continuity in the 'closed' position and non-continuity in 'open'?

Default xyz

I replaced the switch the other day and had the same failure. no brake lights and it will not shift out of park and will not start. I thought it might be the imobilizer in the remote so I tried locking the doors twice and opening it, but that didn't work. I tried a new battery to no avail. I tested the switch for continutity and it seems good. Perhaps the starter? would that lock me into park?

Default neutral safety switch

Just to close this out. Thanks for all your help. I found a neutral safety switch on ebay for $5.00 plus shipping and installed it. The transmission now engages. It still needs to be adjusted. I think you just put it in neutral and adjust the shaft on the cable. correct?
