Question about 2006 Ford Fusion

2 Answers

How do I disconnect the park on the 2006 Ford Fusion when the brake lights not working, I know the brake lights must work for me to get the car out of park and that there is a button beside the gear s

This is the 2nd time I have been stuck and unable to shift out of park, the first time I was towed to the garage, this time the tow truck driver advised me that when the brake lights don't work the shifter is on the same circuit and wont work, there is a release beside the shifter, how does it work....

I believe if you pop off the cap you just push down on it with another key or small screw driver you could be having issues with the brake light switch or the shifter assembly.

I would advise checking the brake light switch , this is located at the top of the brake pedal, disconnect the wire and turn the switchclockwise one full turn , reconnect the wire and check the lights , you may have to repeat this a few times until the adjustment is just right , very uncommon for both brake lights to go at same time , hope this helps you

SOURCE: tow/haul light comes on gauge shows HOT

Does the trans fluid have a burnt smell and is it brown or dark brown as opposed to a red wine color? If this is the case then you may have a service issue caused by a clogged trans filter which is what this sounds a great deal like and the sooner you get the truck to the dealer or your mechanic the better as the trans in these are not cheap to rebuild or replace.

My 2006 Ford fusion does not release the key from the ignition when it's in park???


You have a problem with THE SHIFT INTERLOCK SYSTEM !


The floor shifter assembly:




  • locks the transaxle range selector lever in the PARK position when the ignition switch is in the LOCK position.

  • requires the transaxle range selector lever to be in the PARK position to turn the ignition switch to the LOCK position.




PINPOINT TEST A: THE SHIFT INTERLOCK SYSTEM DOES NOT RELEASE/LOCK CORRECTLY







A1 TEST THE BRAKE LIGHTS









  • Apply the brake pedal and view the brake lights.

  • Do the brake lights illuminate?




Yes

GO to A2 .



No

REFER to Section 417-01 .




A2 TEST SHIFT INTERLOCK ACTUATOR POWER CIRCUIT









  • Disconnect: Floor Shifter Harness Connector C3245.

  • Key in ON position.

  • Measure the voltage between floor shifter harness connector C3245-1, vehicle harness side and ground, while applying the brake pedal.

    Is the voltage greater than 10 volts?
A3 TEST SHIFT INTERLOCK ACTUATOR GROUND CIRCUIT



  • Key in OFF position.

  • Measure the resistance between floor shifter harness connector C3245-4, vehicle harness side and ground.

    Is the resistance less than 5 ohms?

Yes

INSTALL a new selector lever. Refer to Selector Lever in this section.

No

REPAIR the circuit. TEST the system for normal operation.

Car wont get out of park when i engage brake the safety switch is staying on locking it in park


Looking down at the shifter, look a little forward and to the right.
You will see a little plastic cap. Lift it off and you will see a reset button. Push it down with a phillips screwdriver and it will release the shifter from park.

2004 Ford Fusion Auto, clicking from pedal area when braking and going back on to accelerator.


Hello, Check under the Drivers side dash. Look at the top of the brake pedal lever and there is a switch there. Sometimes the switch gets kicked and damaged or just shifted in its' holder. The switch is most likely working as it is the one which allows you to shift out of Park when depressing the brake pedal.

You can check your brake lights too, but they may work if the switch case is broken and not shorted.

It will start but it stuck on park it's 2006 ford fusion


lawrence aud, You dont offer much detail but it sounds like you have a shift solenoid problem. This is a safety device that will not let you shift gears until you apply the brakes. Have someone check and see if you have brake lights. If not then you have to replace the brake light switch. The shift solenoid is also controlled by this switch. If this is the case, what you can do to move the vehicle is to disconnect the brake light switch and jump the wires with a piece of wire or a paper clip. This will allow you to move the vehicle but the brake lights will be on constantly. If you have brake lights then the shift solenoid itself is faulty. This can be found in the center console by the shifter if the shifter is on the floor between the seats. If shifter is on the cloumn then the solenoid is in the colunmn. Good luck with this.

How to overide limp mode in 2006 ford fusion


put the key in the ignition, and turn it so the lights and everything come on, do not start the engine, then pump the brakes 3 times, turn it off, and then start the engine. This worked for my 2008 for fusion. (if the brakes don't work, try the gas 3 times make sure the engine is off and the car is in park)
Best of luck!
