SOURCE: Transmission trouble on 2002 Ford E-450 Super Duty

Hi, this is a defective OD shift solenoid that is located inside the trans pan. you will have to drop this pan in order to extract it for replacement. this solenoid, if damaged, cant initiate the shift sequence required for the OD to engage during operational procedures.

Simply replacing this solenoid will fix this issue.

NOw, concerning the erratic shifts. this is isolated within the transmission control module. it seems to be malfunctioning. you will need to replace this module as well.

Does the engine crank but just not start? Or... are you cycling the ignition switch without trying to crank the engine? Based on the information you have given, I would first guess that the fuel pump may be going out. I say this because when you first turn the key on the pump primes the engine with pressurized fuel. If the pump is getting old, it may take a few power cycles to get it going. You can test this theory by having somebody listen near the rear of the car while you turn the key on for the first time. The fuel pump make a faint, yet distinctive high pitch noise that can be heard when you turn the key on. Try that first. Next thing you would try is checking the relays for proper function... starting with the fuel pump relay. Good luck.

The Trans fluid should be changed every 30,000 miles or two years.
Changing any fluid on a vehicle is never a fix for anything,just preventative maintenance.
You should have done the Power Steering Fluid, Trans Fluid,Brake Fluid,Etc a couple of times,before getting to 80K.

Also I would hope you changed the spark plugs buy at least 60K.

You may have a TCC Solenoid going bad,but the engages the torque converter clutch.

Is it shifting into OD? Most likely you have a solenoid issue,but need to find out which one. Most fords have a solenoid pack in the trans,with all of them in one unit. Not sure on yours.

The only way it will be expensive, is if you go to a dealer or get pitched some story by a shop, not able to diagnose, what is most likely a simple fix.

How to fix shifter stuck in park 2005 ford escape


In general this type saftey feature is released by pressing the brake pedal. If that doesn't work check and see if your brake lights work OK. Often its the same electrical circut that powers the shift lever lock release that lights the brake lights. Many vehicles will have a manual over ride. It is usually a slot or little removable plug or plastic panel you remove that let's you release the locking mechonizum at the shift lever. This should not be used as a way to drive a vehicle with non functional brake lights on the road instead of getting them repaired.

My 2003 ford explorer xlt hazard indicators on the dash light up when the heater or headlamps are turned on and the truck won't shift out of park until they are turned off.


Power back feed through the electrical systems ,maybe . Looking at a wiring diagram to see if these share a body ground point would be the thing to do. Do you know anything about automotive electrical circuit's ? What the difference is from B+ voltage side of the circuit and the ground side . Do you know what a wiring diagram is ,how to read one ? Scanner wouldn't show anything in these cases . Testing the electrical circuits for the affected systems is the only way .

2003 Ford Escape Shift Problems. Only P works.


Nothing to do with your alternator my friend, you did nothing to cause this situation. Block the tires and put the emergency brake on, slide under to view the shift linkage on the trans, have someone shift ti for you, if the linkage does not move, you have a broken or disconnected shift cable that needs attention.
