tranny problem

I have a 1994 cadillac fleetwood brougham and its getting harder and harder to shift out of park. By looking at the "BRAKE TO SHIFT" light on the dash that perhaps theres a short, but where and what has the short? The neutral safety switch????

Check your brake light switch; it may be out of adjustment. That usually controls the release solenoid.

Question tranny/brakelight switch

I checked the switch and its acting all funky, its seems like there may be to much play in the cable thats connected to it nevertheless the switch clicks eraticly when you apply brake sometimes releasing the shifter but more often not. Are there any adjustments that can be made if so can you tell me how to do it?

Do your brake lights work properly? If not, definitely throw out the switch for a new one.

Question brakelight switch

the brake lights are working fine, the problem that I can see with the switch is the shifting out of park problem.
Any advice??

Check the adjustment of the switch, try moving it in and out.

Beyond that, you'd have to test the switch electrically. Use autolibrary to guide you, beyond that a service manual is needed.

Check to make sure the shifter linkage is not out of adjustment.
