Make sure you have brake lamps. The shift interlock solenoid is powered by the brake lamp switch.

SOURCE: My P0745 code: My 2002 ford explorer has a problem

Some 2002 Explorer/Mountaineer vehicles built prior to 3/4/2002 with 5R55W transmission, may exhibit no 3rd gear or slipping 2-3 shift with diagnostic trouble codes (DTCs) P0733 and P0745 present. This may be due to a broken intermediate band.

ACTION
If the conditions described are verified:

^ Follow Service Procedure "A" to confirm band is broken.

^ Follow Service Procedure "B" after verifying a band is broken.


Per Procedure "B", if a broken band is found replacement of both the OD and intermediate bands and pistons will be necessary. However, only an inspection of the direct clutch drum may be necessary. The drum should not be replaced unless damage is found.

I have a 2003 FORD explore and the gear shift move and its stuck in park


Its the shift pin inside your shifter. i replaced my whole shifter 2 years ago. I then took apart the old shifter and used jb weld on the small pin that worked its way out. It worked like a champ. I thus sold my old shifter. In my opinion its a factory known default in fords but they expect you to bring it to them so they can gouge your wallet.

Transmission wont shift into gear unless i turn


Ford Explorers are nice, but are commonly known for the trannsmssion to fail, I know becuase I know of people who also went through this tranny problem, Get it fixed and install a new tranny cool, heat is the number one cause for failure. I personally wouldn't get a Explorer from other peoples experiences.
