You nead to check the blinker switch and the sensor also. This is a pretty common problem.

    If you get a chilton manual and not the haynes, it will show you directly where these are. one of them is going to be in one of your fuse box's. The other can be anywhere, sorry I don't have the Chilton you need or I would just copy the page for you.

2010 subaru forester engine cuts out


consider this
when at the stop lights , you will have your foot on the brake as it will still be in drive or in gear and you don't want the car to move
a simple test is to apply the hand brake to stop the car and don't touch the foot brake
if it idles ok but cuts out when you apply the foot brake , replace the brake booster as it has a vacuum leak that is causing the problem
you can do this test in the garage by starting in neutral and allowing the engine to idle , then apply the foot brake
iof it dies it is the booster

My question is my brake light wouldn't go off so I disconnected the battery,next day put on a brake switch and now SUV Ford Explor wont crank up or get in gear.Then got this guy to come look at it ,then...


Wow, you're all over the page with this request! :)
By saying "wont crank up or get in gear" I need to know, when you turn the key to start, does it in fact make the engine crank?
Make sure the shifter, if automatic, is all the way up into park.
Make sure battery is fully charged. Battery terminals are clean and tight.
Then turn key to on, not start yet. Are lights lighting up on instrument panel? Yes? No?
Try these things and let us know what you have.

Step on brake pedal have some one tell you if brake lights are on .if not you probably have a bad brake light switch or a blown fuse once repaired it will let you put the shifter in gear. if this was helpful please leave good feed back

Ford Excurtion will start normal, but stall when putting in gear (reverse) or braking. When re-starting it runns ok until next braking.


Have the catalytic converter checked at your local muffler shop...clogged...worn out...Hope this helps.

I have a 1997 Town Car and it runs perfectly fine until i park it, then try to start it and put it in gear, it will start up just fine with no noises, and the battery, lights, and everything else is fine,...


Check to see if your brake lights come on when the brake pedal is depressed. If they do not come on, the problem could be the brake light switch or associated connector/wiring. The brake light circuit controls the solenoid (control) that allows the shifter to come out of the park position. The brake light switch is connected to the brake pedal arm. You May have to remove a cover panel (three plactic retainers) to see the switch. A possible solution is to turn the ignition key to the 1st position, then shift the car into neutral. This should allow you to start the car and shift into any gear. HOWEVER, you may not have brake lights (use hand signals) and when you park, use the emergency brake after stopping, shif the car to neutral and not PARK. This will allow use of your car until you can get it properly fixed.

Cannot put car in gear.


First, check that the brake lights are working, if they are not , then check the fuse. If the brake lights are working , then check the switch that is connected to the brake pedal, that the wires are good connections.If they look ok, then cross the 2 wires at the switch and try the gear selector, if it works, then its the switch thats faulty, if not then it could be the actuator on the gear selector mechanism thats faulty. Hope trhat helps

P0500, intermittant speedometer, after sitting 6 months


Sounds speedmeeter is going haywire. Like everything in today's automobiles they are made with plastic gears. Some can be unscrewed under the stearing wheel others are not. The problem with the brake light break pads were probably stuck.I would say that your speedometer is not removable to many people disconnecting them for low milage on vehicle when trading or selling.

HELP!


Try this: Start the car. Have someone look at the brake lights. Press the brake pedal. Do the brake lights come on? There is a switch on the brake pedal that allows the shifter to come out of park. No brake lights? Check the brake fuse. Fuse OK? Check under the hood for a blown 30 amp (or bigger) fuse. I'd bet that you have a blown large fuse. Did anyone try to "jump" the battery just before this happened? If so, you may def have a blown large fuse. Hope this helps.
