You need to remove the trans pan to inspect the parking pawl and rod. Hopefully you can adjust or repair with trans in your vehicle.

Also don't assume your cable etc is okey. You don't know that. You may be able to adjust it and be okey.

SOURCE: changing time on clock radio 1999 ford explorer xls

To set the hour, press and hold the CLK control and press SEEK. (Use arrows to increase or decrease hours). To set the minutes, press and hold the CLK control and press TUNE and use arrows.

This should work unless your vehicle has a separate clock module.(Other than the digital radio display).

There are several options. It all depends on how bad you want the leather seats. You could disassemble the seats and transfer the upholstery from one seat to the other, or you could transfer the motor mechanisms from one seat to the other. The leather seats are most likely equipped with seat heater elements...there is no way you are going to get them to work without redesigning half of the vehicle, so you can either leave the heating elements out when you transfer the upholstery or just leave their respective connectors disconnected.

My 1998 ford explorer shift is funny.


If the shifter is sloppy there is a piece that comes loose but usualy breaks under the dash where the shifter cable hooks up the the sterring column. It is a tube that runs from the shifter handle to the cable. Ford will sell you 2-3 pieces, but first get under there and look for lots of play. It may not even put the trans in park if its really loose. You must remove the whole column to fix it. Hope this helps.

My 1996 ford explorer wont engage into gear and no brake lights. Have to barely turn key on to get it to Neutral then start explorer and no brake light.


You kind of answered your own Question. If the shifter is a floor shifter and not on the column I would check the linkage there. Do you have reverse lights? And after it starts does it go into gear or is it a dead stick? I would also check to see if the shift cable on the trans is moving with someone moving the shifter. It might be the cable or module on the brake pedal. Give more info after trying these and let me know.

I have a 2004 ford explorer xlt the gear shift broke when i went to put it on drive...how is that possible???


hello! will try to assist! you may have a broken shifter cable.when you turn the key to 'on' or 'start' the shifter just moves sloppy,or easily. right? thats a sign of broken shifter cable.i have a 1994 explorer 4x4 there is a shifter cable to your transmission,sometimes they break. the cable will need to be replaced. you can purchase new or used,but if you're going to keep the truck,buy it new. the older fords had a metal linkage to the transmission,without the push button 4x4 option. the new ones have a cable shifter,just another way to get into our pocket book. try this with 2 people [for safety] put your emergency brake on,turn key switch on. have someone,or you,look under the driverside of truck up at the transmission shifter cable to see if it's moving on the side of the transmission.whoevers setting in the drivers seat will have to move the shifter from park to low,with the emergency brake on so the truck does'nt move or their foot on the brake,that works too. just make sure your safe as the truck cannot move while the person's shifting the gears while you look under the truck for shifter movement on the transmission.if no movement on the transmission while the gears are shifted,the cables broken. there,i went through the steps to insure your safety,and to give you a solution. just always be safe when you're under or around a vehicle that you're trying to repair.remember this always!the vehicle can be replaced,you can not! thank you for choosing fixya com and i look forward to assisting you in the future.

I unable to put my 1999 Ford explorer into park. Sometimes it will not start unless I put the key into start bring the gear down and up towards park and hold it. Somebody told me it could be a shift...


Hi, you are on the right track with the shifter cable, when the shifter cable goes bad it stretches out and doesnt allow the transmission all the way up into park. these cables arent to hard to replace but do require some moderate interior disassembly. if you do not feel comfortable with this repair you should take it to a repair shop. also the shifter cables can sometimes only be found at the dealer which is a little pricey.
