1996 ford conture shift cable adjustment

if you have replaced the shift cable and everything is working other than the dash indicator, that is adjusted by turning a small plastic nut on the right lower right side of the column (it's on a plastic bolt portion of the string leading up and around to the actual pointer)
if you need to adjust it because the vehicle is not shifting out of park correctly or through the gears correctly, something is warn out, usually the cable mounting portion of the column, the actual shift points are set inside the transmission and you can not easily fix any of that

Wiring diagram

There should have been an instruction sheet with the replacement sensor that tells you which wire goes to which.
If there is no instruction sheet I would go back to the store and ask for a replacement.
Each brand of replacement sensor has a different configuration.

When you push the clucth in to shift the motor revs up 1000rpm.this is concerning my 2011 chevy Matis.It is a Mexican model.

you have a stuck accelerator cable. look at the engine and find a thin cable (a few thin wires coiled together, without insulation covering them at some point) leading to the fuel system components. it will thread itself through a small wheel with two holes on it, one where the thin cable enters the wheel and the other hole where it rests. put some grease on this cable, and pump the accelrator foot pedal a few times with the engine off. any type of grease will work, but some last longer than others. make sure you dont get any of the grease on any other parts of the motor or it will smoke when the engine gets hot. just wipe up any spills before you start the car. i have even used chapstick in a pinch. also, you could try turning off the key and starting the car again to reset the switch or module.

My truck starts to shake when i reach 20 mph. what could be the problem?

Could be a multitude of issues, but we'll start with the easy possibilities first. --------- Check all of your tires. You may have a broken belt in one (or both) front tires and that can lead to shaking. If you can, take the tires off and look at each tire straight on, as if you were looking through the tread. Roll the tire slowly away from you and watch to see if the tread is off-center, or if the tire has a bulge on one sidewall. If so, that would be your problem. Just get new tires.

Next, check all of your lug nuts to make sure they are all there and all tight.(Front and back). Also check to see if any of your holes where the studs come through the rims aren't 'oval', as this is a sign of loose lugnuts, will cause shaking, not to mention, is extremely unsafe. If any holes are oval, you will need to replace the rims, and also possibly the studs as the studs have had excessive uneven torque on them, leading them to fail and you could loose a tire while driving. Good luck!

I have a 2004 F150 supercrew 4x4 and it will not shift into park and when I start it I have to put it into neutral any help Thanks

Sounds like the shift interlock circuit has an issue.

This can be 1 of 3 places

1. The fuse for the Shift Interlock circuit. This is fuse #16

2. The shift interlock switch. This is part of the BPP ( Brake Pedal Position ) Switch that also controls the brake lamps. There are 2 switches in the BPP switch, 1 for the shift interlock, the other the brakes. The circuit in the BPP switch for the shift interlock is the Tan w/ Red stripe wire ( from fuse # 16 ) to Pink w/ Light Green stripe ( to the shift interlock solenoid ).
Test both side of this circuit with a meter ( to ground ) you should have power on the Tan w/ Red stripe wire any time the key is in the Start or Run position.
The Pink w/ Light Green stripe wire should have power any time the brake pedal is pressed down.
If you do not have power at the Pink w/ Light Green stripe wire, you need a new BPP switch.
If you have power with the brake pedal pressed on this wire, you need a new Shift Interlock Solenoid.

You will need to go to a Ford dealership and first get the part. The remove the radio's center trim panel. two screws are hidden at the bottom. Removet that panel the remove all screws that hold in the cluster trim. After the trim is removed, remove thecluster screws. You will see the cable which leads into the shift bowl. That is what is removed and replaced

Can't get Shifter out of park on a 2005 F150 ford Truck.

If this is a new body style 2004 ( not a heritage or lightning ) did you check fuse #16 ? This is the fuse for the shift interlock switch on the brake pedal.

IF this fuse is good, check the shift interlock section of the brake pedal position ( BPP ) switch ( on the side of the brake pedal lever, usually has a yellow c-clip cover on it ).
The wires for the shift interlock circuit
Fuse #16 to Tan w/ REd stripe wire
Pink w/ light green stripe to the shift interlock solenoid.

If there is power on the Tan w/ REd stripe wire, press the brake pedal down, and check the pink w/ light greens stripe wire for power ( switch is closed when brake pedal is pressed.

If you do not have power on the pink w/ light greens stripe wire, you need a new BPP switch.
If you have power on the pink w/ light greens stripe wire, you need a new shift interlock solenoid.

Replace antenna

Remove old Antenna
  1. Activate the antenna switch to the up position.
  2. Using the wrench or needle-nose pliers, loosen and remove the original retaining nut on the base of the antenna mast.
  3. Gain access to the underside of the area of the trunk where the antenna is located.
  4. Remove the bracket or brace that is below the hole and holding the antenna in place.
  5. Remove the mast.
  6. Find the motor that controls the antenna mast. Generally, power antennas will have a constant 12-volt lead and a ground lead. The ground lead will be grounded to the panel next to the motor.
  7. Remove the ground lead from the panel.
  8. Pull out the antenna coaxial cable.
  9. Unplug the coaxial from the extension coaxial cable.
  10. Remove the original antenna coaxial cable. Note the route the cable follows.

Install new Antenna
  1. Inspect the fender area where the antenna mast will be mounted for rust.
  2. Clean the area before installing the new antenna.
  3. Plug the new antenna coaxial cable to the extension coaxial cable.
  4. Plug the new antenna's coaxial cable into the radio's chassis antenna jack if there is no extension coaxial cable. Tie or tape the string you put on the extension cable to the new antenna coaxial cable. This assures that the 2 cables stay together as you route them to the antenna mount in the fender.
  5. Connect the power lead of the antenna to the power antenna lead on the radio.
  6. Connect the 12-volt constant lead to the antenna to a 12-volt source or to the ignition switch.
  7. Direct the new antenna cable via the same route followed by the original antenna cable on up to the hole in the fender in which the mast will be mounted.
  8. Ground the ground lead from the motor to a clean metal surface on the metal panel near the mount.
  9. Insert the mast into the hole. Face the serrated side of the plastic cable on the bottom of the mast toward the motor side. The plastic cable can be inserted freely to about 12 inches and will stop.
  10. Turn on antenna switch to down position until the plastic cable goes down and catches into the gear mechanism of the drum housing. If the plastic cable does not gear into the mechanism, twist the cable slightly until the cable contacts into the gear mechanism while the motor is in operation.
  11. Stop the motor after the cable goes into the housing 12 to 25 inches.
  12. Secure the bracket or strap to the bottom of the antenna mast and to the metal fender.
  13. Replace the retainer nut to the base of the antenna mast and secure tightly.
  14. Replace the panel that covers the antenna mount area.

1990 automatic 85,000 miles- Shifter will not stay in park and will start jumping ahead if parked on an incline. Also, when starting the car, the key stays in start position- starting the engine and...

Check the shift cable for proper adjustment. Remove the console, put shift selector in N (make sure wheels are blocked), remove lock pin from cable adjuster, check that the hole in the adjuster is perfectly in line with the hole in the shift cable. (there are 2 holes in the end of the shift cable positioned 90degrees apart to allow for 1/4 turn adjustments) If not perfectly aligned, loosen the lock nut on the shift cable and adjust as necessary. Tighten the lock nut and install the lock pin in the adjuster. If the lock pin feels like it's binding when being installed, it's still out of adjustment and must be adjusted again.
The key staying in the start position: try spraying wd-40 or similar lubricant into key hole, if condition is the same, you will need to change the key ignition assembly, as it is worn out,
