Im not trying to be a **** by asking but is there any atf in the reservoir? if so check your book for fuse placement and check those you may have blown a fuse if not well good luck it may be best to bring it in to a garage to have a diagnostics run on it i know there are a lot of shops around me that do it for free so call around before just bringing it in cheaper. good luck

2003 aviator won't go into gear


When you say the vehicle "won't go into gear," do you mean you cannot move the lever out of PARK, or do you mean that when you move the lever out of PARK the transmission will not engage?
If the lever will not move out of PARK, check your BRAKE LIGHT fuse, your BRAKE LIGHT switch, and the SOLENOID at the shift mechanism.
If your lever moves out of PARK easily (too easily), it is possible that your shift linkage has broken or come loose.
If your lever moves out of PARK normally but the transmission does not engage, it's time to have the car towed to the transmission repair shop.

1991 Ford F150 won't shift into park or reverse. Will go into neutral and drive, and the linkage at the transmission moves ok


The linkage may be out of adjustment preventing the shifter from moving into reverse or park.
One way to test this is to disconnect the linkage and manually move the lever on the transmision making sure that it can be set into park. Also try moving the lever counting each click from park to low gear to make sure it is clicking into each gear. If this works then the linkage is probably out of adjustment.
On the link cable there is typically a bolt in an oval shaped metal near the transmission shift lever.
1)Detach the shift cable from the transmission shift lever
2)Put the transmision shift lever in the park position, and also the shifter in the cab
3)Loosen the adjustment bolt
4)Reattach the cable to the lever
5)Tighten the adjustment bolt in place
6)Confirm that you can shift through all of the gears
Hope this helps

The weld on the manual lever is known to break loose. First, with the wheels off the ground, with the lever in the park position, does the drive shaft lock in park? If yes or no sometimes, drop the trans pan. I bet the nut on the lever camd loose.

I have a 2003 ford escape with a factory stereo in it. every time i shift out of park the stereo stops working. if i shift back to park it works again. any ideas?


Sound like the shift mechanism is rubbing against a wire or two which is affecting the radio. Do it slowly and see which gear selection makes the radio stop working. After that, you will need diagrams from the web which shows you the dashboard location for wires to fix this problem.
