You will need to go to a Ford dealership and first get the part. The remove the radio's center trim panel. two screws are hidden at the bottom. Removet that panel the remove all screws that hold in the cluster trim. After the trim is removed, remove thecluster screws. You will see the cable which leads into the shift bowl. That is what is removed and replaced

Ford taurus will not shift into gear drive or reverse and transmission makes no noise


If brake light switch (down near brake pedal arm) fails, then the car will not allow you to shift into gear. [ And you may not have break lights either (!) ] This switch serves as the safety interlock as well - to make sure your foot is on the brakes before it will allow you to shift out of P - Park, and in to D drive, or R reverse. It was also a "FORD RECALL" on my car, a long long time ago, to have that switch replaced - as it was failing early / a lot on many of these cars. BOTTOM LINE - you must get the switch replaced. HOWEVER - in the mean time, you can probably get the car into gear by doing something like this (from memory, hope I have it correct for you): with engine OFF / not running. 1. Turn ignition to second position - Click Click - the RUN position, but do not start the engine. 2. Put car in Neutral or N. (hold brake down so car won't move) 3. Now start engine. Now will allow you to shift from N into D - drive or R- reverse. [ that's just from memory, long time ago - but I think it will work something like that ].
You may not have brake lights working ... so best to fix ASAP.
Also, shifting like this is a pain in the ... so plan to drive very soon to mechanic / or FORD Dealership and fix ASAP. Tell them you KNOW it was a RECALL on this vehicle - so hopefully they should fix it for you for little or no cost. Hope this helps. cheers!

My 1998 ford explorer shift is funny.


If the shifter is sloppy there is a piece that comes loose but usualy breaks under the dash where the shifter cable hooks up the the sterring column. It is a tube that runs from the shifter handle to the cable. Ford will sell you 2-3 pieces, but first get under there and look for lots of play. It may not even put the trans in park if its really loose. You must remove the whole column to fix it. Hope this helps.

Shifter cable will not engage into park or reverse. moves freely, no resistance


Have you checked each end of the cable to see if it is connected to the shift lever and the transmission ?

Column shifter does not make the gears change, indicator moves from P to D and nothing happens


Sounds like your cable has broken or come off on the side of the transmission this is your problem it snaps off and on under the vehicle. and if the linkage is intact and moves it is the electronic module on the side of the transmission behind the shift cable.Remember to rate my solution and give testimonial this is how i earn my achievements here on FixYa Thanks in advance if you need further help just ask

Shift cable has sliped r is park n is reverse ect


What you have here is a broken shift indicator adjuster accessed by removing the steering column shrouds or the shift linkage plate at the bottom of the steering column above the pedals has come loose from the shifter tube which goes along the top of the steering column.

Van won't lock into reverse or park all the time.


it is either the shifter or the cable, I would go with a broken part in the shifter linkage. Detrim the steering column and see what shows up, very easy just 4 screw I think.
