Look for a broken trailing arm, or loose bolts or degraded rubber grommets on it. This is a piece of the suspension that goes from the frame to the strut. It holds the strut in place vertically. When broken or loose this truck can bang around back and forth. It could also a a worn out universal joint which can be hard to detect because even the slightest amount of play can cause noises. Perhaps even a loose brake caliper. But the gears in the differential may be becoming worn and sloppy as well. You can check up a rear tire and try moving it back and forth to see how much played there is in the differential and universal joint.

Shift interlock solenoid for 2002 ford explorer


Look at the top of your brake pedal lever. You can verify a problem by looking at your brake lights when you press them. Most likely they will not light up. It is this signal which releases the shift interlock solenoid.

Often a foot will dislocate or break the switch on the brake pedal lever.

4wd module isnt workin


First check these steps in engaging.
Stop completely, clutch in or neutral for automatics, step on brake pedal, engage 4wd, select gear. Sometimes the engage switch is connect to the brake also. I have to step onthe brake to get into 4Low on my 1993 Explorer.
Next step is to check for loose wires under the transmission. If the plug came out the trans wont know to get into 4wd.
Lastly, if you are handy, get a chiltons or othr manual and remove and clean the 4wd module.
If none of these work then the module is probably burned out, replace or take to a shop for replacement.
Hope this helps you get it fixed.

Check your parking brake. if it goes down to the floor or does not hold, then your back brakes needs adjusted. bad master cylinders bleed off slowly to the floor while pushing on the brake pedal. If you need assistance on adjusting let me know.

Stop lights is on every time


If your stop lights are on all the time, your stop light switch, mounted on the steering coluum under the dash, is either defective or out of adjustment. Make sure the switch is depressing when foot is off the break pedal. If it is, then the break switch is defective. Good luck!
