On most fords, you should be able to with the key in position 1...if not, hook jumper cables to it so the Brake On/Off switch will activate the shift lock solenoid with the key on position 2.

I have a 2002 ford explore that won't turn over and the shifter won't move. Trina to trouble shoot. Any ideas.


Do you get any action when you turn the key? A click?
Check battery. Dead battery is the first thing to check for. Headlights come on full brightness? Try jumping it?
If shifter won't move, what is it stuck in? If auto, stuck in "park" may simply be that the parking brake is holding tension against the parking gear's workings. If stick, similar, but pressing clutch should clear.

2004 explore won't start or crank, it does nothing when starting. I replaced starter and battery and getting same results.


Is your security light flashing--if yes, you have a PATS problem. If no, try starting in neutral or shifting thru the gears as you hold the key to start (foot on brake, please). This will test the adjustment of your park/neutral switch.

Please see my tip at http://www.fixya.com/cars/r6222268-engine_doesnt_crank_turn_over . These are generic instructions. If you get stuck or need specific instructions for your car, please get back to me with model, year and engine info.

2005 GMC Envoy key is stuck in accessory position in the ignition with dead battery and transmission stuck in park. Will replacing battery help or is it security system lock down? If it is the security...


Jump starting the battery may be all you need. If this vehicle was not in park when the battery went dead and when you got in to start it it was dead. You then probably put it into park trying to start it.
But the issue at this time is if it was in neutral when the battery went dead the you changing the selector to park may not actually have placed the transmission in park. With electronic gear selection it actually need power to the system to place the transmission in park.
Without it really being in park the key may move to the lock position.
A bit of quess work here but I hope for you I hit the mark.

98 ford explorer will drive but you put in in reverse will not go


It is possible that the shift linkage is out of adjustment and is going into neutral and not making it to Reverse, try moving the gear selector slowly from park, through reverse to Neutral, and see if it will go into reverse somwhere in between. If this does not work ,you may have Reverse gear failure, a common problem with explorer/ranger transmissions. unfortunatly it requires rebuilding the transmission
