  3. Disengage the harness connector from the MLP sensor.
  4. Remove the 2 sensor attaching bolts and remove the sensor.

  2. Move the sliding block assembly on the neutral switch to the Neutral position and insert a 0.091 in. (2.3mm) gauge pin in the alignment hole on the terminal side of the switch.
  3. Move the switch assembly housing so that the sliding block contacts the actuating pin lever. Secure the switch to the outer tube of the steering column and remove the gauge pin.
  4. Check the operation of the switch. The engine should only start in Neutral and Park .

SOURCE: Where is 2001 Ford Explorer overdrive solenoid

inside the transmission, mounted on the transmission shift control valve body. There are four solenoids located on this valve body, it is difficult to explain which one does what, you can measure each one with an OHM meter, the OHM valve is hard to specify, but there should be an OHM value, it should not be shorted or open, hope this helps, let me know

There is a small amount of adjustment by loosening the screws and turning the switch a bit. If that doesn't work then the contacts in the switch are burned and needs to be replaced.
