The brake switch may be going bad. This happened in a 1998 Ford Taurus we own.

96 explorer disengages 4wh low but does not engage 2wheel


Does it shift to 4wd high range ? If so then shift to 2wd . What is going on here is the transfer case motor is stopping due to the motor position sensor has gone bad which means that you replace the transfer case motor assembly. But if you wish to make it a 2wd for awhile then remove motor and manually turn shaft . This can be done by raising and supporting rear axle truck in park remove motor turn shaft slowly with pliers and rotating the play in drive shaft. There are stamped markings on back of case showing gear positions..

2003 explorer wont shift out of park engine starts , gear shift will not move


Your shift lock actuator is not working. This system works off of the brake light circuits. The FIRST thing to check is your brake lamps. If they are not working, that is the reason for your shifter not working. Fix the brake lamps and your shifter will shift. (Possible defective brake lamp switch).

If your brake lamps are working, then the shift lock solenoid or its circuits are defective. In this case, you can work around the problem until you can get it fixed. Turn the ignition switch one click.(Far enough to unlock the steering wheel, but not far enough to make the lights on the instrument cluster illuminate.) The shifter will then shift out of PARK. Place the shifter in NEUTRAL and start the engine. You can then shift to the desired gear to get where you need to go. If you place the shifter back in PARK, you will have to shut the ignition off and repeat the process.

Car won't shift out of park


It osunds like the shift interlock solenoid is not unlocking when you step on the brake, do you hear a click nosie?

Try the emergency bypass. turn key to OFF, step on brake, shift out of park into neutral. Then start car and drive away. do not put back in park until you get to destination. Or you will have to shut off, turn key to OFF, and apply brake, and shift to neutral again.

report back. check all fuses. see chart in owner manaul

1998 ford explorer runs fine in drive but in reverse engine only revs as if it were in neutral. Is it the shift cable or the transmission?


to make sure which one disconnect the cable and with your hand click all the way to the front, start the engine have someone in the vehicle with the parking brake on and their foot on the brake the manually put it in reverse, if still no reverse its the transmission.

92 ford explorer. runs great. replaced vaccum modulator recently. shifting from park to drive the engine revs up ( 60% of the time) and its like in neutral. then i shift back into neutral and wait till...


Sounds like the filter in the trans is plugged up. Should flush trans every 45,000 miles and replace filter and fulid. Its easier to take it in to a shop and have it done they use high pressure flush which will clean out the whole thing for about $200.

try checking you Park/Neutral safety switch. if that's faulty it will do exactly what you are saying and while you're at it test the ignition switch but i'm leaning towards the safety switch
