Tear down the steering column and replace the worn out bowl assembly or buy a used column and switch over your ignition lock to the used column.

SOURCE: shifter is stuck in park

check and make sure your brake light s work, if they don't the shifter is locked out, it is a safety feature to make sure your foot is on the brake when u shift into drive or reverse.

SOURCE: 03 explorer indicates wrong gear

if the shifter is still firm in its location, the neutral safety switch is located on the left side of the transmission. you can loosen it and relalign it to read the correct gear.

SOURCE: Ford truck shifter locked in park

For the column shifter it is on the left hand side of the steering wheel column behind the knee panel.
For the console shifter it is under the cup holder, think it is still on the left side.

For either of them, the shift interlock solenoid has a white button on it, that you can press and it will release the gear shift lever.

This is for the 2004 New Body style truck, if you have a 2004 Heritage or Lightning, it is slightly different.

My 1997 ford taurus wont shift out of park. The shifter seams to be stuck, it wont move. The shifter is on the steering wheel not the floor.


This is often a switch located on the brake pedal lever. The car requires you to press the Brake pedal before shiftting out of Park. You lose the signal when a foot hits or breaks this part. Look under the dash for the part and fix it.

The
shifter needs to be inspected. Its quite possible that The
shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has to be open and realign.








There
are many other possibilities. But if it was working right up till now and
suddenly this shifting problem occurred then its shifter
assembly alignment issue.




Also
i suggest you to refer these gear shift issues, which are mostly noticed. These
are direct links with appropriate solutions to
the specific problems of gear shift

1998 Ford Taurus. The car won't shift from park into another gear. The shifter is very loose and easily will slide to the right without no resistence at all. Possible kick down cable problem? Transmission...


Good chance it is a bad shift cable between shifter and transmission. check that first. Lots of the parts are plastic and can break and the cables usually frey and break in the casings. common on these cars. hope this helps.
