2001 crown victoria

I have the same problem with my car as you do.  It will only go into a gear if you start it from neutral. If started in park none of the gears will work.

04 crown victoria not turning over battery gud new alternator


connections? at the battery posts are good? power available at starter relay? car is in park or neutral? now you need to verify theres power on the start wire. the small trigger wire for start enable. if a test light or voltmeter wont show power during crank, then it may be theres a problem in the neutral safety. it has to know the trans is out of gear. newer vehicles have mlp sensors instead of neutral safety switches. its time to get a service manual and determine the pinpoint test for this vehicle

I have a 93 crown victoria and it runs great but more often when I put it into park it doesnt want to start again. I have to reput it in park 3 or 4 times.


Bad PRNDL switch(park/reverse/neutral/drive/low).May be adjustable,but most likely the switch is bad.As a temporary/free solution,try starting in Neutral(USE YOUR PARKING BRAKE!)

The gear shifter wont go into park , and only started in neutral but now seems to be stripped. this is a 1992 crown victoria v-e


The bolt tens to loosen up on the shifter. Look up from the floor board at the column. You will see the shift cable attached to a metal shift arm. Where this arm is bolted to the column with two bolt, tighten the bolts they should be loose, You will need a torx bit. I think T30 or t40

2004 Crown Vic Police car the starter tries to engage while shifting from Neutral to Drive, any ideas?


The ignition switch and/or neutral safety switch is failing.
Please do not use the vehicle until you are able to inspect the ignition switch,the wire harness connected to the ignition switch and neutral safety switch + the recall on the wire insulator.
The starter gear can damage the flywheel and cause LABOR INTENSIVE repair.

Please check the service record the 2004 recall on selected Crown Vic Police car.
Link HERE for the official NTSA recall notice on wiring insulator.
Call your local Ford dealer,provide you VIN number and reference recall NHTSA Campaign ID number : 05V206000

My gear shift is lock how can i get it unlocked, i can not get it out of park.


try turning your key half way then put in neutral then start. if this works your brake switch is bad. or the fuse is blown. when turning the key half way there are two or three positions just not all the way to start.

My car won't shift out of park, 1993 ford crown victoria i need to know the location of the sclu switch and/or the park sense switch


Check to make sure your brake lights are functioning properly. The crowns vics of that year have a neutral safety switch that links the shifter to the brake lights.

If the brake lights don't turn on = it won't come out of gear

If they do turn on = it could be that the neutral safety switch is out of place or malfunctioning.

I do believe that the neutral safety switch in that model should be located near the firewall attached to the upper side of your steering column.

You can easily get a manual for your car or look it up at the library to find it's exact location. Or try asking at your local auto parts store.

My 2001 crown vic will not shift out of park


when you depres the brake pedal do yoiu hear a clicking noise in the steering column? (this noise would be a sign of the shift interlock solenoid functioning)? are all of the brake light bulbs working? (it wont let you shift without all brake bulbs working)....you can overide this shift feature by turning key to on position, without starting vehicle, shift into neutral, then into your desired gear. i hope this helpos your some! good luck!

2000 crown victoria -brake lites failed


You have a bad switch at the brake pedal. Or a loose wire. Try light pulling on the wires on the switch at the brake pedal under the dash. They should be tight and secure. If tight and secure the switch could be bad.
