2005 Lincoln Aviator

The park light on the gear shift stays on for 10 minutes after the vehicle is shut off. Is that normal? Seems to run the battery down and haven't noticed it until now.

On my 2004 Aviator, the indicator was lit all the time, and it did kill the battery if I didn't drive it every day. The dealer stated it should only remain lit for 20 minutes, and replaced the shift assembly. Sounds like they shortened the illumination time to 10 minutes.

2003 aviator won't go into gear


When you say the vehicle "won't go into gear," do you mean you cannot move the lever out of PARK, or do you mean that when you move the lever out of PARK the transmission will not engage?
If the lever will not move out of PARK, check your BRAKE LIGHT fuse, your BRAKE LIGHT switch, and the SOLENOID at the shift mechanism.
If your lever moves out of PARK easily (too easily), it is possible that your shift linkage has broken or come loose.
If your lever moves out of PARK normally but the transmission does not engage, it's time to have the car towed to the transmission repair shop.

2005 lincoln aviator: check transmission comes on when I accelarate over bumpy terrain, Once I turn the truck off and back on the light is gone, it happen every so often.Why?


Most likely it is time for a tranny rebuild.
When you turn car off and then back on after a few minutes, the computer resets and it feels like the problem is gone.
soon, it will happen more often.
have a local tranny shop look at it. I did mine for $1,500. Shop around.

My gear shift is stuck in park. The car starts up fine, but shifter wont budge.


the fuse is bad for shift lock solenoid. Read owner manual section on brak-shift interlock. Check fuse for nbrake lights. Brake lights work.

Owner manual has emergency by pass procedure. I think you turn key to OFF and then shift to neutral and start car then. Next time in park, you have to repeat.

2004 Aviator is parked and it will not press down to get out of the park position. What is the problem


Brake light fuse is blown or the shift lock solenoid has gone bad. It is supposed to release the gear shift selector at the same time the brake is pressed.

STUCK IN PARK. WILL NOT SHIFT


Your vehicle is equiped with a Brake Shift Interlock which means if the brake is not pressed the shifter will not go out of park. That switch could be bad. You can bypass this shift by using the following procedure. I hope this helps and good luck.

I am parked on an incline and my gear shift will not come out of park.


you may need a second person to "rock" the vehicle if its just jammed, or the shift interlock may be keeping it from shifting out of park. do the brake lights work? there should be a procedure to bypass it in emergencies in the owners manual.
