2004 Ford Explorer sportrac the problem is that when I put it in park it sometimes doesn't work is that the neutral safety switch


Depends on what you mean by doesn't work. If you mean it doesn't go into park then no. If you mean it won't start the next time unless you jiggle the shift handle or put it in neutral, then yes, replace safety switch.

Why do I have to put gear in neutral when it won,t start in park?


The neutral switch is loose or needs adjusting. Sometimes you can hold the shift lever hard in the park position and it will start.

2007 impala won't start sometimes


The most likely problem is a failed safety switch in the transmission. It will only allow the engine to turn over when in "neutral", or "Park". Next time it happens try moving the transmission selector through the full range of travel a couple of times. If this cures the problem, you may need new switch.

When i leave my car on and parked it sounds like its going to shut off


You don't state whether the car is manual or automatic transmission (yes, the Taurus SHO was made during the 1990's with a manual transmission). The RPM's could be an indicator that your car needs a tune-up by a qualified mechanic. Regarding starting the car in neutral, if it is a manual transmission, it won't start in "gear", the reasons for that would be obvious.

If it is an automatic transmission, you DEFINITELY need to take your car to a mechanic. If your car has been worked on by a backyard mechanic, it may have serious problems that need to be corrected before something undesirable happens: I had a car once that would start "in gear" and it was an automatic transmission. I almost ran over my boss once because I forgot to make sure it was in "park" when I started it. That could have been tragic.

Won't start sometimes


Hello
The engine and automatic transmission in this vehicles drive train are fully electronically controlled by a computer called the PCM (Power Train Control Module). Whenever a problem like this occurs the computer stores a record of the problem (there are of course some exceptions to this, like the fuel pump, engine coolant temperature sensor and MAF sensor for instance) in the form of a fault code in its memory, to read these fault codes you must have the systems memory scanned with a special tool. Once the fault code(s) are read you then must perform the appropriate diagnostic testing to find and resolve the problem(s) DO NOT REPLACE ANY PARTS UNTIL A TRAINED TECHNICAIN HAS DIAGNOSED THE PROBLEM TO AVOID SPENDING YOUR HARD EARNED MONEY ON PARTS THAT MAY NOT CORRECT THE PROBLEM

Key stuck in ignition 2007 Ford Fusion


i read other forums and found out if you remove the ring around the shifter button it releases the key. sometimes this gets stuck and the car thinks it is still in gear so it will not allow the key to release. this worked when it happen to me!
