Our 2002 ford f350 super duty truck will not start won't do anything


My guess is if nothing is happening, the cutoff switch that connects to the clutch (must depress the clutch when starting) doesn't function. If it is an automatic, then the neutral safety switch may also cancel the connection to be able to start it. Try depressing the brake, shifting into neutral after securing the parking brake and see if that changes anything. Else, perhaps the batteries are discharged, or even the starter does not function.

My 2002 tbird won't get out ofnpark


If you cannot move the gearshift lever out of P (Park) with ignition in
the RUN position and the brake pedal depressed:
1. Apply the parking brake, turn ignition key to LOCK, then remove the
key.
2. Insert the key and turn it to OFF. Apply the brake pedal and shift to N
(Neutral). This allows the automatic transmission shift lever to be
moved from the P (Park) position without the brake pedal
depressed.
3. Start the vehicle.
If it is necessary to use the above procedure to move the gearshift lever,
it is possible that a fuse has blown or the vehicle's brakelamps are not
operating properly.

96 F250 can't shift out of park


NOTE: Your vehicle is equipped with a

brake-shift interlock feature. This

feature prevents you from shifting

from P (Park) unless you have the

brake pedal depressed. (The ignition

must be in the ON position.) If you

cannot shift from P (Park) with the

brake pedal depressed:


1. Apply the parking brake.

2. Remove the key.

3. Insert the key and rotate one position
clockwise (ignition in the OFF position).

4. Apply the brake pedal and shift to N

(Neutral). (If the vehicle is shifted to P

(Park), you must repeat the previous steps.)

5. Start the vehicle.


If you need to shift out of P (Park) by using the

alternate procedure described above, it is

possible that a fuse has blown and that your

brakelamps may also not be functional.


WARNING

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE UNTIL

YOU VERIFY THAT THE BRAKELAMPS
ARE WORKING.

check fuse 13 based on the attached diagram.

If this fuse is bad replace it. If it is not bad, blows again, or continues to be stuck in park then you need a new brake interlock switch that can be found on the brake pedal up underneath the dash.mustang_guru_2.jpg

Make sure your foot is on the brake. If so it could be the shift interlock switch.

Can't get out of park. Brake lights OK. 2002 ford excort se, automatic


In Alot of the newer Fords the brake pedal must be depressed to put the vehicle into gear, this is contolled by a sensor near the top portion of the brake lever, just because your brake lights are working, does not mean this switch, is properly functioning, also it is very possible there is a second switch located in the same area that controls this function. Also if this vehicle is a console shift, it is possible that the safety switch that is connected to shifter is disconnected or broken, this will stop your car from shifting into gear as well. Hope this helps!

three things to check

bad Universal Joint,
with the vehicle in park and the parking brake firmly set get under the vehicle and check for excessive play at either end of the driveshaft.

bad transmission mount
get a helper, have them start the vehicle and with the parking brake firmly set and the brake pedal depressed put it in reverse (DO NOT BE UNDER VEHICLE AND STAY CLEAR OF TIRES) , watch the driveshaft and transmission for movement.

bad motor mount
open the hood, have the helper once again start the engine and put the vehicle in reverse with the parking brake set and the brake pedal depressed, watch for excessive engine movement.
