Hard to say, unless I have my hands on it. But I would say you have a ground problem. Check the grounds from the battery to the body and engine. Corroded/broken cables. This is common with power amps.

My 2005 ford explorer 2wd seems to lock up whenever I hit the brakes hard and then it jumps into gear. What could that be? Transmission is fine, breaks are fine.

I think it sounds like you really did have it looked at

Now you need a shop that goes for a ride with you
& hears the long version of the problem & experiences it

Then instead of looking they actually get out the wiring diagrams
& get serious about diagnosing what seems like an ABS Braking
System issue

May be completely wrong, but I have to guess based on your story

Bottom line, you have yet to address actually working on solving
this issue.

I see this on a thousand questions a week just on this site

People go to dealers & shops ,some many times,some never
leaving the vehicle or I guess the shops don't know why they are
there,because they don't even address the initial complaint or
even road test or the owner never goes for a ride & then come here
for a guess at it.

Starter clicks but wont roll the engine over

Most likely your battery is dead, the clicking usually indicates that. The battery may have the required voltage however, it may not have enough amps. Try giving it a jump start.

06 pontiac grand prix wont start no clicking when you turn the key over even jump starting the battery, has dash lights & radio & parking lights. battery tested good. put a used starter & altinator on

Used parts such as starters and altinators don't last. It might **** but it sounds like you need to buy a new starter,altinator, and battery. Or just start with buying one at a time.

I changed the battery on a 2005 Ford 500. power to everything (lights, windows) but the engine wont turn over. Even with a boost. (the new battery sat for two weeks). Is there some sort of re-set?

Well, power to lights and windows is not really an indication that there is enough power for the starter. However, the fact that jumping it doesn't start the engine either, tells me that the starter may have gone bad, or is on a bad spot.

How much amperage is drawn when trying to start? close to zero or over 125 amps while the starter doesn't turn is abnormal and requires a new starter.

Normally, the starter should draw about 75 to 125 Amps and turn vigorously.

The only other thing I could think of is maybe there's a problem with the security system that cuts off electricity to the starter.

Good luck on this repair.

Battery was dead and tried to start after charging, starter solenoid clicked and engine turn over slowly without starting. Now engine will not turn over. Battery is charged have power to all accessories...

okay,think of it this way,you tried starting,engine turned slowly,no start.....then you charged battery,engine wont turn over(although accessories work)WHY WAS THE BATTERY DEAD TO START WITH.Try a jump start(another battery)if it starts then you know what im going to say.....
