97 Ford Explorer Ignition Key Problem - Will Not Start


Did you program the security system to accept the new key ?
It sounds like the linkage from the lock cylinder is worn out to not let the steering wheel lock. I would want to know if the lock cylinder is turning the switch without any extra movement.

Car stuck in park


The two most common reasons for the shifter not moving out of park are, a problem with the brake switch or the shift lock solenoid. Or you may be on a steep hill and have too much pressure on the park gear.
You may be able to turn the key switch to the unlock position and take the transmission out of park before you turn the key to the on position.

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.

2003 explorer wont shift out of park engine starts , gear shift will not move


Your shift lock actuator is not working. This system works off of the brake light circuits. The FIRST thing to check is your brake lamps. If they are not working, that is the reason for your shifter not working. Fix the brake lamps and your shifter will shift. (Possible defective brake lamp switch).

If your brake lamps are working, then the shift lock solenoid or its circuits are defective. In this case, you can work around the problem until you can get it fixed. Turn the ignition switch one click.(Far enough to unlock the steering wheel, but not far enough to make the lights on the instrument cluster illuminate.) The shifter will then shift out of PARK. Place the shifter in NEUTRAL and start the engine. You can then shift to the desired gear to get where you need to go. If you place the shifter back in PARK, you will have to shut the ignition off and repeat the process.

The gear shift is stuck in park. The wheel moves


Make sure you have brake lamps. The shift interlock solenoid is powered by the brake lamp switch.
