Sounds like the linkage is out of adjustment. You might need to got to a Transmission shop and have it checked out.

SOURCE: I have a 2002 Ford

The Mustang driver has the answer to the problem. There is a switch on the brake pedal, which must be engaged before the shifter will move out of Park.

Try using your emergency brake as well when you park on a hill...it will ease the stress on your shifter.

SOURCE: 2002 Ford Explorer stuck in Park

I had the same problem. On mine it was the brake pedal switch/sensor. Try using the override button. Your manual should have a section on this. There is a sliding panel under the steering wheel cover about 1-1 1/2 inch wide, access the small hole it covers. Use a thin screwdriver, pencil, lollipop stick to depress the button. If this is the problem, you should be able to move the gear lever now.

SOURCE: my 2002 ford explorer wont start. lights come on

first thing to check is the battery and the connections at the battery. if all this checks ok then you should try and look at the fuses for the ignition system. this should get you going in the right direction.

do you have smart lock? picture of a red hand in instrument panel? im sure they do. If so ****** in park hold key to start position & hit dash upwards & inwards on the left hand side of the steering colum if the problem is the smart lock module it will start.

it gets stuck because theres alot of pressure on the pin that holds the transmission in park when on an incline. put the parking brake on before you put it in park.

Shackes and cuts out


What do you mean by it "shakes & cuts out while driving"? The vehicle literally shakes, or just the engine shakes at an idle or while driving? and it cuts out when, at idle, driving? Let me know when specifically it has this problem, it might help me on giving you a better suggestion(s) on what problem(s) might be causing this.

Engine runs vehicle wont move Possible ring gear? 84 Topaz


Is it a metal shaft? When you put it in drive does it make any noise? Does the speedometer move? Does it make a loud clicking sound when you put it back in Park?

2002 explorer will not go into gears except park


This must be a 4X4?
Problem is in the transfer case since speedo is reading(this means outputshaft in trans is turning).
