Question about 2004 Lincoln Aviator
No warning or failure messages. Car starts fine and idles fine but won't move when you put into reverse or Drive.
Bad transmission maybe. Try going into a lower gear (2 or 1) and giving it a little gas and holding it there. (about 2500 rpm) Hold it there for about 30 seconds.
If it still doesnt move, look under at the side of the transmission where the shifter cable connects and make sure it is moving.
Make sure the brake is on and the wheels are blocked and have a friend shift it back and forth while you look.
Sometimes, the connection pin comes out and you wont shift. .
If it does move right away, head to the transmission shop.

Unfortunately it sounds like your automatic transmission has suffered a catastrophic failure. But to be sure, allow your vehicle to warm up to normal operating temprature, pull the oil level dipstick for the transmission and check the level. It should be in the checker portion of the stick to be correct level. If it is not, adding fluid may help the condition temporarily. Check for leaks while the engine is running. Have Lincoln or transmission specialist have a look. When it comes to transmissions in general, it is best to let the pros handle it for youl

You need a new Pressure Control Solenoid Body. 9L2Z7G391A -solenoid pack for a 5R55S Trans. $332.20. at Trans Parts supplier. Don't even call a Lincoln Dealer for a price. They wouldn't even deal with me because I have a sales tax ID, and ask too many question. They will screw you over big time. That's a common problem in a long list of LS issues, my wife has one also and I used to have a Trans Repair Shop. It will slam into Reverse cold, Slip or flair on 3 to 4 Shift. Also expect the EGR Valve to go bad and make the trans issue even harder to troubleshoot, untill it works correctly. Drop the tran pan, remove about 7 screws and change the solenoid body. Best bet, go to a trans shop, never a dealer. Also get the old fluid out of there and put Mecon V in ,with a bottle of Red Lubgard Additive.

SOURCE: My ABS light has been
Hello, There is an Interlock switch at the top of the brake pedal lever. This switch is the one that requires your foot to be on the brake pedal before shifting. When your car loses the signal from this switch, the vehicle will not leave Park.
Look under the dash and locate this switch. If it appears broken you will need a new one. Otherwise just reposition it in the holder. You can tell if it is correct by observing your rear brake lights. When they light up, the switch is usually correctly positioned.
The other possibility is the shifter. It is controlled by an Interlock which has to be lined up to synchronize the Ignition switch. As you know, there are times when the steering wheel needs a little "wiggle" to get a smooth release of the Ignition switch. All of these parts need adjustment to sync them for smooth operation.
I hope my solution is helpful to you.
