Try and start it up in Neutral, with brakes on of course.

My 2007 Lincoln MKZ gear shifter is getting stuck in park and comes out after trying a little while, not every time but its increasing more and more.


On your vehicle there is a shifter interlock system ,it's a safety feature . Doesn't allow shifter to be put into gear if your foot isn't on the brake pedal .

Electrical issue


Does the vehicle start an run ? If it does ,the brain as you call it is working fine . The check engine light has nothing to do with the PCM /ECM sensing problems .You probably should take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop .

I have a few problems. First my van won't keep a charge. Second my van seems to not be able to go beyond second gear. Next when it was running it would die for no reason.


If it's not holding a charge you could have a bad battery or the alternator is not putting out enough voltage to keep it charged. Have your battery tested at auto zone or advanced auto. Once the battery is ruled out the next thing to do is check the alternator, this can be done with the alternator installed on the vehicle, if you have a digital multi-meter or volt meter you can check alternator out put at the battery. If your D.C voltage reading is more than 13 volts than your alternator is working. Your transmission issue is probably linked to the electrical issue since it is an electronic transmission, and requires a certain amount of voltage to operate properly.

New battery. left lights on & had to charge.


There seems to be a no charge state in this case. i recommend checking the charging system. use the procedure below to isolate this issue.

Wear protective eye wear and clothing and remove all jewelry when checking your battery and charging system. Jewelry is a good conductor of electricity and is not recommended. Most batteries wear out every 3 to 5 years and need to be replaced. Always replace your battery with an equal replacement battery to assure proper operation. Automotive batteries have a +positive terminal (red), - negative terminal (black). Electricity is stored in the battery and then supplied to the vehicle when the engine is not running. While the engine is running the vehicles alternator charges the battery for future use. (Note: never disconnect the battery while the engine is running. If the battery cable is disconnected from the battery a spark can be generated which can cause the battery to explode or a major electrical malfunction to occur.)

To check a battery surface voltage, remove the positive terminal protective cover. Connect the +positive side meter lead (red) to the positive side battery terminal. Connect the - negative (black) side meter lead to the negative battery terminal. With the vehicle not running and the car sitting over night the battery voltage should be between 12.5 and 12.8 volts.(You will need to use a voltmeter for this testing procedure)

The alternator is rotated by a drive belt driven by the vehicles engine while it is running. Electrical voltage and amperage are generated to recharge the battery and supply voltage to the electrical system of the car. The alternator is held in place with mounting bolts. There is a main electrical wire on the rear of the alternator that supplies voltage to a main voltage junction box. If your alternator is not charging properly, your battery will slowly drain down from operating all the electrical systems in your car and stop the car from running.(most non charge states will be the cause of a loose belt or a low tension rate, due to a mis-adjusted alternator. make sure you have enough tension in the belt for full rotation of the alt pulley)

Next, you will need to check the alternators output with the Amp meter.

Testing the amperage output of the alternator is good for measuring the amount (not the level) of voltage the alternator can produce. This test can be tricky because if the alternator is weak it can still show it as producing amperage. Which is good, but if the voltage is low, it will still allow the battery to go dead. To check the amperage output of an alternator an amp meter is needed. Once the meter is connected start the engine. Next turn on all electrical accessories and raise the engine idle to about 1200 RPM. The alternator should output the max amperage it was designed to produce. Example: a 90 amp alternator should output about 88 amps. Note: An alternator cannot sustain maximum output for long periods of time. If the alternator is forced to operate at maximum output it will overheat and fail. An alternator is designed to operate at max amperage output only for a reasonable amount of time.

((Connect the voltage meter lead the same way you would in a battery static voltage check, Start engine (do not drive) at engine idle the voltage should be between 13.6 to 14.3 volts. If not the alternator may need replacing.)))

NOTE_ Ok, if everything checks out Ok with the above inspections, and you charging system is working correctly, this will lead to a battery drain issue. Use thsi procedure below to isolate the drain.

Here is the procedure I use to isolate a battery drain. Remove negative battery cable from the battery. Using a 12-volt test light, hook one end to the negative battery post the other end to the negative battery cable you just disconnected. The test light will glow or "light" if there is a drain. If the "light or glow" is faint, that is probably normal draw for the clock or computer. If the "light or glow" is bright, then there is a large drain. That should be corrected. Now start removing and replacing the fuses one by one until the light goes out; that one will be the circuit with the drain. Remember to hold in the button in the door jam for the interior lights.

Cannot turn ignition to start vehicle.


Once the battery is charged, the ignition and shifter should function.
Have the battery charged first or jump start the vehicle and see if all is functioning.
Let me know.

I have some problems with 2000 gmc jimmy not sure if me or truck


If it is a Canadain built vehicle the law required the head lights to stay on while the ignition is turned on. I have owned 9 Jimmy and Blazers including your year of Jimmy and none of them ever amde a noise in the dash when I put the vehicle into park. The shifter only has an electrical line runnig to the light control and a cable which runs under the carpet to the transmission.
