My question is my brake light wouldn't go off so I disconnected the battery,next day put on a brake switch and now SUV Ford Explor wont crank up or get in gear.Then got this guy to come look at it ,then...

Wow, you're all over the page with this request! :)
By saying "wont crank up or get in gear" I need to know, when you turn the key to start, does it in fact make the engine crank?
Make sure the shifter, if automatic, is all the way up into park.
Make sure battery is fully charged. Battery terminals are clean and tight.
Then turn key to on, not start yet. Are lights lighting up on instrument panel? Yes? No?
Try these things and let us know what you have.

2004 ford explorer will not turn over with key but remote starter switch makes it turn over

Its a good possibility that the Anti-theft is interferring with the circuit. If you have an extra ignition key, use that in case the password chip in your regular FOB has detriorated.

There is a brake sensor which is on the upper brake pedal. It interlocks with the starter to prevent starting without having your foot on the brake pedal. Check your brake lights for operation. If the brake lights stay dark with your foot on the pedal, the switch is broke or knocked out of position. A common problem.

Next, there are small wires for the starter solenoid. You can use a test light on one removed wire and ground the test light to the vehicle, the other end in the small wire. Turn the keyswitch to start, with brake pedal pressed and see if it lights up. If it does light up, the starter solenoid may be bad.

Battery level. Ford Anti-theft and some say Battery-saver, can cause both starting and charging problems. A fully charged battery can be at 13.2V- 13.6V. When Ford systems detect low voltage it can activate the Anti-theft, battery-saver, and even disconnect the charging system to allow the battery to completely drain. In some cases the Anti-theft drops starter voltage to around 7V so the starter will not spin. Have the battery tested.

I know of 2004 trucks that were jump started and showed charging, then after 5-10 minutes they lost the charging system. Some people lost the charging system at 70MPH and drove until they stalled. All because of the automatic features built into the trucks. A new battery fixed the problem. Your problem could stem from this.

The Advance Trac is part of the ABS System (brakes)

I would suspect either a coincidence or your
brake people put the issues in.

The only suggestion and I have several

I had the same problem with my 2003 Ford Explorer. I disconnected the battery, which give the relays a chance to reset.
Clean battery termals reconnect and all good.

I bought a 2007 ford explorer with 16,000 miles, when I went to get a state inspection sticker, it failed. they told me it was because the battery was disconnected or they replaced the battery. I was told...

Apparently the code checker that they use tells them how long the computer has been recieving codes. If the battery has been unplugged recently, they may suspect that you have an engine problem, but the code has not shown up yet. It makes sense because I know of people who disconnect the battery to erase the codes then go get the car checked. One of my friend's engine light came on just after he left the testing station, so, he passed but had an engine problem. Run the car for a couple of days and try again.
