My van had to get steering column replaced recently. Neighbor put it in.now i was driving it two days later and while in drive at 40 miles an hour it revved up as if in neutral and won't go into NY gears. Starts up but nothing. Can the sensors or steering shift linkage cable do this?

SOURCE: Everytime I put my car i park it goes into reverse.

It sounds like you have a damaged shifter cable.It is an adjustable cable but if it is that far out of adjustment then it is probably damaged. Replace it.

SOURCE: car will not shift into gear

Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.

SOURCE: Gear Shift lever loose

There are two torx bolts that hold the shifter to the column. You can see them with the lower column cover off (must first remove the ignition cylinder). If the lever is loose, these bolts are the first thing that I would check. That the identical problem on my villager.

I have a automatic transmission and my van will not go into drive or reverse..


Assuming it is a 4L60E trans. The first thing to do is change the filter & replace the fluid. Have the shop check the fluid pressure. Other than that there are numerous things that could cause your problem. Could be the torque convertor on it's way out. P.S.There is no timing belt in a transmission.

HOW DO YOU REPLACE THE SHIFT INDICATOR? MINE STAYS IN PARK NO MATTER WHAT GEAR YOU PUT IT IN


First order a new one from a Ford dealer(about $40). Remove the lower dash panel under the steering wheel. remove the instrument trim panel.
Most of the time its just the mount on the steering column. if so remove the cable from the column, remove the wheel, insert the cable in the new bracket. when done shift the selector to drive and adjust. Start car run through gears and check again in drive.

The sedons sat for two weeks while I was away. On


Replace the intermediate shaft. See TSB (KT2008101402). It connects the steering to the rack and the u-joint binds.

My steering wheel on my van is loose


I think the problem you have is the steering assembly being loose.

To repair this, you must remove the steering wheel and work slowly down the column assembly, removing the indicator switch, ignition switch and other assorted springs and things. Lay out the removed parts in the order and orientation you remove them, take digital pictures or draw sketches at all stages, watch the spring placements. I also unplug the column looms to give you more room by moving the switches away for the area in the column where you are working.

Once you get far enough down the column you will see the three bolts that are loose, hidden in a sub assembly. I have only been able to tighten two of these over the years. This is a common fault.

Rebuild the column using the reverse of the order you removed it.

Good luck

Short in Steering Column?


I am no mechanic, but I cant see a direct correlation between an electrical short and overheating.
I had a bad water pump on my van and never overheated due to the mechanical fan that is on the main shaft that turns the pullies and such.
Sounds, unfortunately, like a freak coincidence. Sorry

Drivers side rear turn signal and brake light not working


I've noticed the same problem with my 2001 Ford Exployer Sport Trac. When my girlfriend drives my truck she raises the steering column, and when I'm driving, I lower the column. I noticed when I was driving recently the left front turn signal kept flashing quickly, thought it was the bulb, but changed and still happening. Today I took apart the steering column cover and noticed the wiring for the turn signals and hazards were loose. To fix this problem I pulled the wires out of column more as to not stress the connection. So far this has fixed the problem.
