The Mustang driver has the answer to the problem. There is a switch on the brake pedal, which must be engaged before the shifter will move out of Park.

I have a 2002 ford explorer and sometimes its hard to shift to drive and the brake lights don't work unless I press really hard on the pedal.


*Hard to shift:
-Possible the shift cable need to be adjusted.
*Brake light is no working unless step(press really hard).
-Need to adjust the brake light switch. It's too closed or stuck.

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.

My ford explorer starts fine but will not shift out of park


sounds like your shift interlock has malfuctioned....press the brake and listen for a clicking noise at the base of the shifter if no click is heard...its solenoid has failed...if it does click...try taping breaks several times while trying to shift it out of park...

I cant shift out of park what is wrong ?


Make sure your foot is on the brake. If so it could be the shift interlock switch.

Cant change gear from park to drive


its a safety switch located either on the brake pedal support or the safety release located in the steering column.
you press the brake pedal and the switch sends power to the release, that allows you to shift the gear selector out of park.
