I have a 2003 ford taurus. My husband went to leave an appointment, and the car will not go into any of the gears. It runs fine, and we have not been having any problems with it.

SOURCE: Can't get my 2000 ford taurus out of park

The gear selector is locked until the system detects the brake pedal is being pressed, the brake circuit then sends a signal to the shifter release solenoid to pull a pin back and let you shift out of park, this is a safety feature required by federal law, U need to have someone see if the brake lights go on when you press the pedal, if they don't check the switch at the top of the brake pedal, if the brake lights work then the little solenoid is defective.

SOURCE: 1998 ford taurus will not shift into 4th gear

gear selector may need adjusted, or a solenoid in the transmission is malfunctioning.best to take to a trans shop and have a diagnostic ran on it.

1997 taurus key won't turn in the ignition, gear selector won't go into gears


Usually a sign the tumblers in the lock cylinder have worn out or jammed.
You may have to get the lock cylinder drilled out and replaced.

2003 Ford Taurus--about 1 week ago heard noise under hood but car continued to drive okay. Then, I went to go to work, it cranks fine but when I shift into a gear, car does not move. Looked at belt under...


You say transmission fluid levels are good. Is it a nice red or pink color or is it an orange, brown to black color. Does the vehicle actually shift into gear, the linkage from the gear shift from park to drive or reverse maybe be unhooked you can check that out also. Does the trans fluid smell burnt, should be kind of a sweet smell. Good Luck
