Re: will not let you put the 2006 h3 in drive running or...
Try putting the key in the 1st position (steering unlocked but no dash lights) and see if you can shift to neutral and then start the car in neutral. If not check and see if the brake lights work with the car running if not check the fuses or the brake light switch. Good Luck.

I had the same problem. It was the car's main computer that had burned out. The dealer first replaced the entire shifter, but then realized it was the computer. You can pop up the little tab on the shifter console and insert your key. It will then go into gear.
You could possibly have a blown fuse, or a bad switch. The shifter interlock is controlled by the computer and it looks inputs from the key transmitting the right code, the ignition switch in the run position, and the brake pedal being pressed. If any one of these signals is missing the computer will not unlock the shifter. Another possible problem could be the interlock mechanism itself, malfunctioning or being damaged in some way. I would reccommend taking it to your local dealer and having it checked out, but only after checking all of your fuses, and the owners manual for other possible problems. One other thing, would be to check the battery in the remote on your key. If it is dead, it may not transmit the code to the computer.
It could be the Starter Safety Switch, which prevents starting the engine while it's in gear. Try jiggling the shifter while it's in Park, or put it in Neutral. I'm waiting for mine to do it again so I can try one of these fixes. Good luck.
well what could of happend they probably put the battery on backwards and blew out a fusible link.The links run thru the wires by the battery and behind the alternator check it out Good Luck keep me posted
I brought my 2006 H3 in to the dealer for the same thing. My blower stopped working all together but it started as an intermittent problem. He said he had to replaced a diode or resistor either behind the switch on the dash that controls the fan or on the fan motor itself. Have not had a problem since but that was only about 4 months ago.
For 2006 up it is none of the above. The problem is a little $5 switch on the right side of the shifter. If you take the console cover off from around the shifter and look at the right side while you step on the brake and squeeze the shifter button you will see a horizontal pin slide up and down. There is also a solenoid that pushes a plastic piece out of the way of the pin. Ford insists on charging you for a whole new shifter assembly insted of replacing the little switch. They knew the switches were bad and gave you an access hole in the console to get to it with a long skinny screwdriver. Look under the rubber bottom piece of the cup holder and you will see a small square hole to stick the screwdriver in to get the switch to manualy release.
