Question about 2006 Ford Explorer
Posted by Anonymous on
Shift interlock problem sounds like . Does your explorer have floor mounted shifter ?
Shift Interlock System
The shift interlock system prevents the shifting from PARK unless the brake pedal is depressed. The shift interlock system consists of a shift lock actuator mounted on the floor shifter. If the ignition switch is in the RUN position, the shift lock actuator is disabled when the brake pedal is depressed.
If the selector lever will not move out of park with the key in the ON position, it will need to be unlocked manually.

Loosen the cable nut at the rear brake, pull the cable until the tension is tight, then tighten the cable nut. Since the parking brake only operates on the rear brakes, your rear pads may be too worn causing the parking brake not to hold. Check the pads first to see if they need to be replaced. Also, the parking brake cable can stretch or break over time. Verify that isn't case since you may need to install a new cable rather than adjust it.

SOURCE: Parking Brake problem
2000 S-10: brake functions properly while pedal is held down, but when I remove my foot, the brake is released.
The following is not a repair so much as a solution to the basic problem and I guess it won't pass scrutiny of any state inspection. Nevertheless, this idea may skip around the automatic pedal stop malfunction and buy you some time while a proper part replacement is arranged.
The release cable ends at the ratchet assembly by the pedal and the lever which receives it can be pushed forward before depressing the pedal thereby engaging the stop which will hold the pedal down and keep the brake engaged. There is no click, or catch evident when the release lever is moved forward and it only moves a little bit.
Not the easiest reach from the driver’s seat. Also, the release cable is likely to jump out of its place if you just reach blindly and push.
From what I've read on this site, there are some design issues with the ratchet mechanism that commonly lead to failure of the pedal stop function.
Hopefully this will help those who still want to park on a hill.

if you can put car on lift( drive on ramp type lift where wheels are NOT hanging free) raise car up and have someone else pull down on front bumper repeatedly while you try to locate noise by putting either your ear or hand on/near different "pivot" points. SUCH AS: lower ball joints, control arm bushings, shock absorbers,sway bar,etc. check bolts nuts etc. for tightness. sometimes a giveaway is a RUST MARK near a bolt head or nut-meaning something was rubbing. if you still cant narrow it down, take a can of silcone spray,or WD40, liquid wrench and one by one spray each pivot point untill the squeak lessens or goes away.if that happens youve got your culprit.
