This is an old warning issue or procedure, I had the same problem a few years ago with my Ford Taurus 1995, if rear stop lights not work, you wont be able to moved the shift out of Parking (P); this is to avoid driving without rear stop lights. If no lights, normally a fuse is blow out or all bulb lights are gone, please check.
There is an alternate procedure to be able to drive your car, but, avoid driving without Stop lights. Turn the ignition key to the point before starting the engine, this release the lock for the driving wheel and transmission shift, press the brake, put the shift in Neutral (N) and start the engine. Im not sure if your Ford Edge has the no key starting button or fob, there is a procedure to release the locks and be able to drive, should be in your drivers manual, but, again; the intention is to avoid moving the car without Stop Lights. I hope this helps. Happy Holidays and take care.
Sounds as if the gears may be broken in the rear axle, the front axle will pull the car if in four wheel drive but when in 2 wheel drive only the rear axle pulls. Get the back tires off the ground and turn the rear end by the wheels. You may or may not hear any noise but if it is in park it you should feel some resistance if the gears are in good shape, will likely turn freely or lock up completely in spots if the gears are broken.
If the ignition lock cylinder hasn't broken internally, try this:
grasp the steering wheel. Apply turning pressure (like trying to turn the wheel) while turning the key. Key should turn. If not, your ignition lock cylinder may be defective.
hi this sounds like you might have rear brake drum internal problems, does the parking brake work ok? what might of happened is that one of the brake shoes inside the drum/disk might have thrown its covering and has gone around inside the drum and locked the wheel up like the parking brake is on there reallyisn't anything else to go wrong that would cause that, you will need to remove the rear disk/drum if you can, as it could really be any internal part broken like a spring or the self adjuster...hope this helps please vote
key code lock out usually happens when you have entered the wrong code too many times leaving the battery connected should allow the timer to run down for 30 mins so you can try again, it is cumulative though so the more you get it wrong the longer you have to wait. make sure battery is fully charged first.
Hello, with this body style, we have found this a lot. If the rear shoes are not adjusted really close, and I mean close, we have many issues the same as you are having. ABS is coming on, because rear wheels are locking up. You didnt mention if you cut the drums. A course cut will also cause this condition. We now set the brake drag so it turns 1 revolution after you spin the tire on the hoist. Hope this helps you get this repaired.
or locking pin the the steering lock meck has jammed or
the mech at the back of the lock with the wires has jamme
, have you a spare key ? if still has the fault try forcing the wheel left and right while trying key see if that frees it, remove the wire connector from back of lock, try again
if not then the barrel may be at fault the it will need cutting off there are 2 "shear bolts" which need cutting in to and then unscrewing to release the barrel , best doing all this with battery disconnected
The Range Rovers have permanently engaged Four Wheel Drive. If the tires are different sizes, they're spinning at different rates. Or trying to.
If you were off-road, it wouldn't matter too much, but on paved road, where the tires tend to grip not slip, these different rates subject a locked drive train to tremendous stress. This can bind up the gearing in the transfer case. Hopefully after only ten minutes, no permanent damage was done.
You can relieve this stress by jacking one end completely off the ground. Front or back. As the tires lose their grip on the road, you should see them spin slightly. That's good news. Once released you should be able to move again.
While it's in the air, you should probably put the original size tires back on. So choose which end to jack accordingly.
Comment me back to let me know how it goes. Good luck
