Shift interlock solenoid for 2002 ford explorer

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.

My ford explorer starts fine but will not shift out of park

sounds like your shift interlock has the brake and listen for a clicking noise at the base of the shifter if no click is heard...its solenoid has failed...if it does click...try taping breaks several times while trying to shift it out of park...

I have a 2004 F150 supercrew 4x4 and it will not shift into park and when I start it I have to put it into neutral any help Thanks

Sounds like the shift interlock circuit has an issue.

This can be 1 of 3 places

1. The fuse for the Shift Interlock circuit. This is fuse #16

2. The shift interlock switch. This is part of the BPP ( Brake Pedal Position ) Switch that also controls the brake lamps. There are 2 switches in the BPP switch, 1 for the shift interlock, the other the brakes. The circuit in the BPP switch for the shift interlock is the Tan w/ Red stripe wire ( from fuse # 16 ) to Pink w/ Light Green stripe ( to the shift interlock solenoid ).
Test both side of this circuit with a meter ( to ground ) you should have power on the Tan w/ Red stripe wire any time the key is in the Start or Run position.
The Pink w/ Light Green stripe wire should have power any time the brake pedal is pressed down.
If you do not have power at the Pink w/ Light Green stripe wire, you need a new BPP switch.
If you have power with the brake pedal pressed on this wire, you need a new Shift Interlock Solenoid.

2003 dodge ram 1500 quad cab will not shift out of park

There is what is called a shift interlock mechanism. It is suppose to keep you from putting it into gear withut putting your foot on the break.

Do a quick test. See if your brake lights come on when you press the brake peddle. If they do, you will have to go into the wireing of the brake switch and see if power is coming out of the switch to the interlock solenoid. If power is going to the solenoid, then you have a bad solenoid.

Hope this helps.

MY 2004 f-150 will not come out of park. i have changed the brake switch and the speed control cutoff switch and speed control does not work

If this is a new Body Style 2004 ( not a Heritage or Lightning model ) Prior to changing the BPP ( Brake Pedal Position Switch ) did you check both sides of the Shift Interlock circuit, to see if that was the case ? The Shift interlock is Fuse 16 to the Tan w/ Red stripe wire -> Interlock section of the BPP -> Pink w/ Light green stripe wire.
The Pink w/ Light Green stripe wire is what triggers the Shift interlock solenoid.

The CC on the new body style, the disconnect switch is the only mechanical ( aside from the throttle motor, which is also acceleration ) that would need to be changed.
Did you move the deactivator switch while installing it ? These are 1 time self adjusting switches.
Test the switch from the Light Blue w/ Pink stripe wire to the Black w/ yellow stripe wire. The switch should be open with the brake pedal off. If this is working correctly, does the horn & illumination work ? This is checking of there is a problem with the clock spring for turning it on.

Fuse that locks the steering wheel and shifter keeps blowing. Where shuold i look for a problem?

On the 2004 New Body style truck, the shift interlock switch is part of the BPP ( Brake Pedal Position ) switch.

Take a a look at the wiring on the switch to make sure it is not crimped / damaged some how. The wiring path is fairly short with the column shifter.

The shift interlock wiring path

Fuse #16 to BPP Switch is Tan w/ Red stripe wire
BPP to shift interlock solenoid is Pink with Light green stripe wire.

Pull the connector on the BPP, replace Fuse #16 ( if needed ) and jumper the back of the connector with a paper clip ( be careful not to make contact with ground, it will blow the fuse ) through the back of the connector.
If the fuse blows, the Shift Interlock Solenoid is the issue, if not the BPP or where the wires were located when the connector was plugged in is the issue ( that is part of checking the wire to / from the BPP for damaged insulation ).

The "shift lock button" will not depress when i press the brake in to start. Upn using the over ride option i can shift and also have brake lights. Is this do to the "Shift Lock Control- ECU,SELENOID or...

Hello.The shift release solenoid is controlled by the brake light switch; it has 2 is to illuminat ethe beake lamps, the other is to provide electricity to the shift interlock.

The first thing I would do is to check to see if you have 12 volts DC at the wire on the shift interlock solenoid, when the brake is depressed. If the voltage is present, then ensure that there is a proper ground. While you are there, inspect the interlock solenoid for contamination. Soda, coffee, etc when spilt onto the console can find its way into the solenoid, and seize it up, thusly preventing its proper operation, The failure rate for the shift solenoids is VERY low; I would seriously doubt that the the solenoid has failed. You either have a power issue (replace the brake lamp switch); or clean the solenoid, use WD-40; it works great. Please get back to us if you need futher assistance.

Could anyone tell me how to find the "shift solenoid" for a ford explorer?

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.
