My ford laser wont start


What often happens is the switch on the brake pedal gets knocked around by the driver's feet. This switch is suppose to be a safety switch to insure that your foot is on the brake pedal before it lets the starter work. On some models another safety switch is on the gear shift to insure that the vehicle is in Park or Neutral. If your vehicle is a stick-shift they sometimes put the switch on the clutch lever to make sure you do not try to start the car in gear.

The car has an automatic transmission and all of a sudden i had no reverse had no slipping or nothing the drive gears work fine no slipping grinding nothing shifts through all gears just fine


It may just need servicing/adjusting.

Your reverse gear is actually first gear ... when you select reverse another 'cog' fits into the toothed wheels to change the direction of first gear ... to give you reverse...

It may be a sticky valve or just a bit of adjustment (workshop job..) that is required.

What you can try ..

Start the car ... move the lever through all the positions several times (foot on brake..). Keep your foot on the brake and then put it in reverse and rev the car. Hard!

Try doing it several times.

An auto transmission works on valves opening and closing. Reverse gear - in comparison with the forward gears - is seldom used. The reverse valve can 'stick'. Try forcing it to open ... frighten it ... but keep your foot on the brake...

My question is my brake light wouldn't go off so I disconnected the battery,next day put on a brake switch and now SUV Ford Explor wont crank up or get in gear.Then got this guy to come look at it ,then...


Wow, you're all over the page with this request! :)
By saying "wont crank up or get in gear" I need to know, when you turn the key to start, does it in fact make the engine crank?
Make sure the shifter, if automatic, is all the way up into park.
Make sure battery is fully charged. Battery terminals are clean and tight.
Then turn key to on, not start yet. Are lights lighting up on instrument panel? Yes? No?
Try these things and let us know what you have.

Hello. my 2009 CRV had been seeming to make some odd noises when changing gears from park, reverse, and drive. The dealership said nothing was wrong. I had been keeping a close eye on it for a few...


changing gear wont hurt your car unless its thumping into gear, you should all ways put your foot brake on anyhow when changing into reverse or drive to stop this thumping but going into drive then reverse realy wont hurt it in any way

My car wont move out of park and the braks lights arent working.


my ford taurus did this to me too.... your car wont move out of park because it might be the neutral safety switch because your brake light connector piece might have come undone...
now first off the brakes (my switch was above my brake pedal) and just make sure its clipped in and then your neutral safety switch should go of and you can put it into gear.
if you cant find the brake thing to see if its unplugged just turn your key slightly on before all your dash lights come on and put the car into neutral and then start your car and you can put it into gear.

BRAKE LIGHTS STAY ON ENGINE RUNNING BUT CAR WONT DRIVE


there is a button on your brake pedal lever that while braking gets depressed, and turns on your brake lights. Now this component is a plastic piece that can get knocked loose rather simply. You either need to re-secure this component, or replace it

(you can get this part at any junk yard for nothing more than some pocket change)
