Question about 2007 Ford Explorer Sport Trac
The console mounted shift lever will not dis-engage from park. The small chrome button is locked, and will not release the shift lever. After about 6 attempts to shift from park, it will finally dis-engage. Is this an electrical problem, or a mechanical problem?
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.

If you can please look under the hood and find the Air filter, and follow that all the way to a round metal part (Throttle body) If you can see it there will be a coil,and on that coid will extrude a curved plate with a cable(throttle cable) attached to it running all the way back inward toward the back of the engine, and next to that there should be a second cable (crusie control cable). This cable is pulled on when you engage the cruise control, by a black box next to the fuse box.
If the Cruise control cable is near by try to reattach it and if it is damaged then have your dealership or some one mechanically inclinded to replace the tip ( if plastic) or replace the cable.
If that didnt help please get back to me

Look in the owners manual and see if they have a circuit breaker or relay instead of a fuse. It could be bad and you would not see it.
