Question about 1999 Ford Explorer
When in Park it reads letter R, when in Reverse, reads letter N, when in Nuetral, reads letter D, when in Drive, reads letter D1, etc...., however gears all work. My husband took steering and radio front panels off to replace burned out bulbs, then this problem occurred same day. Please help???? Thank you. CK
You can remove the instrument cluster trim and see where the selector needle is,below that you will see a string or a wire that moves it when you move the gear shift,i believe there is an adjustment for this on the steering column in the area of the selector needle.

If you own a rear wheel drive you will have to have two people to make it easier on you. climb underneath and look on the side of the trans. you will see a bar that comes down or a cable that attaches to it and you will adjust it from there. have the person inside hold the vehicle in park while you undo the nut that holds assembly together. dont take it all the way off though and dont lose the spacer. you will pull the rod either up or down or the cable forward or backward. once everything is loose keep in mind you can easily change geers from underneath so chock the tires so it doesnt roll on you. it may take a couple times trying to adjust it to get it where you want but thats how its done.
