Question about 1996 Ford Explorer
Car will not come out of park
Look at the top of your brake pedal lever. You can verify a problem by looking at your brake lights when you press them. Most likely they will not light up. It is this signal which releases the shift interlock solenoid.
Often a foot will dislocate or break the switch on the brake pedal lever.

geode07 : Not knowing which shift solenoid you are seeking, I will give you both.
The first has to do with the internals of the transmission. The "Transmission" shift solenoid referenced there is located within the main control body assembly.
The second is referred to as a "Shift interlock Solenoid"
This is located within the steering column.

Shift solenoid is typically WHEN to shift, not slipping.
Bands and fluid are slipping (and sometimes pump).
Cheap test, remove old, install new fluid... test.
If it works - congrats.
If not, AAMCO or other transmission place for a real test.
