The ECT button stand for Electronically Controlled Transmission. In short, what the button does is change the upshift points for the auto trans. Normally, the 1-2 upshift is at 15-19 mph, pressing the button changes the shift mph form 15-19 to 19-22/23. More often than not, this feature wiooould be used if you are hauling a heay load, and the ECT gets you up to speed faster, via the longer time as mentioned above re the shift mphs. Not very useful with normal driving, it really does not do much without a heavy load.

My trans shift lever push button will not push in when engine is running and brake pedal is pushed down


Check to see if you have brake lights. If the brake light switch under the dash is broken or mis-aligned it can cause the shift lock to stay on

There is a symbol on the dash showing a circle with a traingle and and exclamation mark in the centre


This is the ASC indicator. It comes on when the system is turned off. To get the light out, turn the system back on by pushing the ASC(dsc) button on the console. It's located just ahead of the shift lever. ASC is the Automatic Stability Control system.
It's a traction control light. it warns whenever the system is turned on and the car senses a loss of traction. you can deactivate the system by pushing the ASD(dsc) button and holding. this light will illuminate to say: you may lose traction.
Can sometimes be activated by faulty brake(ABS) sensors,ABS pump,While checking ensure that your brake pads aren't worn right down.
If the light still stays up get your local service dealer to scan cars computer for fault code relating to which sensor is perhaps faulty.
I hope this helps you or get back with your findings

What does the ect dash light mean


ECT stands for Electronically Controlled Transmission. When you push the button in, there should be a light on the dash that says "ECT POWER". This changes the normal shift times (based on engine vacuum, rpm, and throttle position to a later point. This means simply that the engine rpms will go higher before shifting to a higher gear when you're accelerating. It helps build speed more quickly but uses more gas to do so

Shifting lever doesnt lock


Likely the shift detent mechanism is broken. It's inside the unit and can be reached by removing the trans pan. It should be just inside where the shift lever goes through the case.

2007 Ford Explorer Sport-Trac automatic trans shift lever release.


Most common is a failing brake light switch. If the brake lights don't come on when the shifter is stuck and they work when the shifter works you need a new switch.

Unsure if promblem is fixed. Blowing efi fuse.


The most common reason for the EFI fuse to blow is the wiring is rubbed through somewhere in the engine wiring harness, this fuse supplies power to many EFI parts on the engine, always look for shorts where the most movement is, the engine is that place, most likely the next time you go down a really rough road the short may occure again, carry a few fuses just to be safe.
