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.

SOURCE: 1998 ford explorer is having a transmission slip

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.

- Shift solenoid 2 valve harness or connectors
- Shift solenoid 2 valve circuit is open or shorted
help.png Help with thisTech notes When the a transmission solenoid is stuck off, in most cases the problem is not the electrical part of the solenoid; the problem is foreign material obstructing the mechanical function of the solenoid or the flow of the fluid through the transmission valve body. If the transmission fluid is very dirty, it is recommend changing the transmission fluid and if possible removing the transmission pan for further diagnosis. Excessive debris or metal particles on the transmission pan could be an indication that there is a transmission mechanical failure and that the transmission will need to be rebuilt or replaced.

For a 2000 ford explorer gear shift won't lock which is causing car to not start


Do you mean you can't get it into park ?
Could be the lock solenoid blocking it. Or a problem with the linkage going to the transmission.

t's called the shift interlock feature. It's triggered by the brake switch so make sure the brake lights are coming on when this happens.
If the brake lights are working, then you'll have to get to the
solenoid in the console. Disassemble as much as you have to to access
the solenoid near the shifting mechanism. Us a 12v testlight to test
for power arriving at the solenoid when the brake is applied. If
power is arriving and the solenoid is not triggering, the solenoid is
bad.
