Some signals needed by the ECU might be missing. Check if all connectors are properly connected, especially the ones that go to the tranny. Or better get an OBD II monitoring device to do the troubleshooting. Hope it helps.

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Expedition - starts, won't shift out of park, windows n

Check the #15 fuse in fusebox behind marked panel on left lower dash just below and left of steering column. This is only a 5 amp fuse but it controls a lot. This fixed our 2001 Expedition. 25 cents.

If it works fine when warm replace transmission filter and fluid. the filter is probably blocked and when cold gets no fluid through it. if this was helpful please leave good feed back

2000 ford expedition will not change gears after reaching 40mph then car goes into neutral. Then if i put the car into overdrive it runs fine.

The infamous Exploder transmission. Try a tranny flush and new gasket. More likely it needs a new transmission.

I have a Ford Expedition 2001. When I put the vehicle on Drive, I give it gas and it doesnt move, like I have it on neutral. I just bought a code reader and it gives me 10 codes stating solenoid. Please...

Assuming your vehicle has an automatic transmission, and if it just started doing this,your probably low on transmission fluid. if this has been going on for some time....there's a good chance the transmission has been damaged permanently. That is to say....if you have repeatedly put the car in gear and revved the engine and or driven it while it is slipping badly, it doesn't take too much of this to burn up your transmission. If the former is your case, with a warm engine in park, emergency brakes set, level ground...check your transmission fluid level on the dipstick ( it should be labeled) the checking xxxx mark at the top represents full when the fluid level is covering it. Unlike the engine oil, the xxxx represents 1 pint, not 1quart.


Try to post back and let me know If I helped you solve your problem. It will help me with my rating....!! Thanks

2002 ford expedition stuck in park the gear shift would not come out of park

replace the neutral safety switch or also try rocking the vehicle forward and back and then trying the shifter again.if it is parked tight against a curb and had rolled forward just a little bit and came to rest with the vehicles weight against one tire this will cause a bind and won't let it out of park this is especially true of 4x4 vehicles as the mileages get hire I hope this helps and good luck

2001 ford expedition stuck in park the gear shift would not come out of park

brake-sahift interlock solenoid not working. check fuse first. when key is on and brake is pressed, it either activates or deactivates the solenoid so you can shift out of park. safety thing.
chrck owner manual for a mechanical overide process. maybe there is one.

It parks in rev drives in neutral and and so on

So your problem is that the shifter indicator is not correctly aligned? If so look under the dash at the bottom side of the steering wheel, set parking brake, move the gear selector handle and look for the moving part under the dash, this is the indicator cable, it has an adjustment on the mount usually a thumbwheel, the indicator is spring loaded to stay in the park position, use the thumbwheel and adjust the indicator back to P while handle is in park position, then test to see if it is working properly, if you are unable to adjust to proper position the spring unit may be damaged, and it is replaceable by removing the dash, then removing the indicator unit, I would just get one from a wrecking yard from a wrecked Expedition and adjust to your vehicle. Hope this helps, let me know.
