Question about 1999 Ford F250 Regular Cab

2 Answers

I have a 1991 Ford F250 with a C6 transmission 4X4, 460 and I cannot put the vehicle in Park. I have to start the vehicle in Neutral and shut it off in Reverse. I bought the parking switch F2UZ-15A851-A but cant find it near the linkage to replace. Anyone have a diagram or other suggestion of what might be wrong? Thanks

I have a 92 f250 with a 351 which had the same problem. there is a linkage adjuster at the bracket that holds the cable in place by the shifter lever on the transmission. you have to squeeze the sides of the clip which hold the adjuster in the bracket and feed it toward the front of the truck...then you roll it over and there is a white clip which can be pinched together and then slid out. you can then slide the cable towards the back end of the truck, push the white clip back in, rotate it back around, and slide it back in to the mounting bracket. i dont know if it is the same with your motor...but you can check. i actually fixed mine today, with just a pair of needlenose pliers, and a flathead screwdriver. i actually could have done it without use of a tool if the plastic wasnt so still...hope this helps...g.

Two things, the shift linkage bushings need replaced or most likely the column shift tube needs replaced.

My 1991 ford escort won't turn over. Fully charged battery. any ideas?


There is no relay involved in the starter circuit of this vehicle . The micro switch you are talking about at the shifter has nothing to do with the starting circuiIt either . If you have a automatic transmission There is on the transmission the park neutral safety switch . Won't allow the vehicle to start unless the transmission is in park or neutral . Ford calls the switch manual lever position switch . Try moving the shift lever to netual to see if it starts .

Check the linkage on your steering column, first. You can disconnect it from the transmission, then see if it moves freely.

To install:

  3. Remove the jackstands and lower the vehicle.
  4. Connect the negative battery cable.


ADJUSTMENT

C6 Transmission
  1. Hold the steering column transmission selector lever against the Neutral stop.
  2. Move the sliding block assembly on the neutral switch to the Neutral position and insert a 0.091 in. (2.3mm) gauge pin in the alignment hole on the terminal side of the switch.
  3. Move the switch assembly housing so that the sliding block contacts the actuating pin lever. Secure the switch to the outer tube of the steering column and remove the gauge pin.
  4. Check the operation of the switch. The engine should only start in Neutral and Park .
