SOURCE: 98 Ford Explorer won't move in reverse

Sometimes it may just be the fluid level, if you have drive , drive it around the block a few times, then park it on level ground and hold the brake and go through all the gears slowley, two times. put it in park, open the hood and check the fluid level, the dip stick in the back by the fire wall, take it out and clean it, read the stick. SOME need to be checked in Nutral, if this is the case do so but be carefull that the truck has stopped moving when put in nutral!!! if it is low only put in the right fluid, and a little at a time, while it is still running DO NOT OVER FILL !!!!!!!! Also sometimes it is a SENSOR problem, and in most cases not to hard or costly to replace.

Your ECM is reading that everything is ok. The light will stay on when the problem becomes constant. You can have the codes read safely while the motor is running.

I have a 2002 ford explorer and sometimes its hard to shift to drive and the brake lights don't work unless I press really hard on the pedal.


*Hard to shift:
-Possible the shift cable need to be adjusted.
*Brake light is no working unless step(press really hard).
-Need to adjust the brake light switch. It's too closed or stuck.

No parking on 98 ford explorer


That has nothing to do with the neutral safety switch (totally separate problem). You either have a broken adjuster or the cable adjuster is simply out of adjustment for your gearshift indicator. This cable and adjuster for this is located on the steering column just below the shifter. If the adjuster is broken (pretty common) the gearshift indicator asembly must be replaced to get it to work correctly.

I have a 98 Mountaineer and I'm having trouble


Adjustment is best left to the Garage as if you muck it up you will not be able to select park.

There is an adjustment on the gearbox.

98 ford explorer will drive but you put in in reverse will not go


It is possible that the shift linkage is out of adjustment and is going into neutral and not making it to Reverse, try moving the gear selector slowly from park, through reverse to Neutral, and see if it will go into reverse somwhere in between. If this does not work ,you may have Reverse gear failure, a common problem with explorer/ranger transmissions. unfortunatly it requires rebuilding the transmission
