I would check for brake lights when it happens, like have someone be looking. The parking pawl is in the tranny to keep vehicle from rolling. Sometimes the solenoid in the steering column gets weak or soda popped. If you remove the plastic there are four nuts 13mm and the prndl indicator 5.5mm remove this small plastic peice and small cable or it will break which tells what gear shifter is in on display to remove then you can set the steering wheel on the chair and examine the problem or disable because you WILL still need a key to take out of gear

Usually means the vac motor is faulty, or you have lost vac to the motor. When you shift out of park, vac pulls the release for the parking brake.

When I turn the ignition switch to start the vehicle I often cannot shift the stick shift out of Park. If I immediately try to switch gears after starting the engine it usually works but if I leave it more...

ok the safety feature on an auto gearbox is that the gear select has a solinoid lock on the shift & you norm have to start engine first before you can select drive now if the engine is running & not allowing you to select a drive then for some reason the solinoid is losing its signal or going faulty or even the shaft needing a little lube IE: wd40 now my volvo won't even allow me to take the key out untill its in park hope this helps

Forgot to release parking brakes and drove car for 5km now it is bumping in slow speed in lower gear and vibrating on higher speed. what is the solution

The rotors got to hot and now (most likely) are warped. You may be able to have the rotors turned to rid the warp. If not, they need replaced along with the pads.

My 2007 seabring won't shift out of park... Car

The car is probably on a steep hill and a lot of pressure is on the park pawl in the automatic transmission. If this is the case, a hard sudden pull should release it. Make sure the brake is on. When parking on a hill in the future use the parking brake before placing the lever in park.

My 2007 expendition died while driving , change fuel pump put in new fuel pump from dealer truck wont trun over when key is trun,security system light flash when key is on fast , call lock smith they put...

I had the same problem with my 2007 Ford Expedition EL Limited. The dealership suspected the heater control module on the center console is malfunctioning/tripping. They reset this by unplugging the it then re-plug after about 3 minutes.
You can do this yourself, too.
To do this, take off the bottom-most center console cover, then lift up the whole stereo cover to expose the wiring behind it. You will see the back of the heater control module with two (2) plugs (black and blue). Unplug the blue one then wait for a couple of minutes before plugging in again.
turn on the ignition and you should see the display on the dash back to normal, then start.

Want to know the size of the allen head screw that holds the front caliper together on a 2007 expedition 2wd 5.4 liter limited

These are mostly metric now. Sorry the sizes are not listed in the shop manual. Some are TORX head as well. (star shaped). Take a close look to see what you have. Sears will let you return any unused tools.
