2001 Ford ex xplorer sport trac. Transmission is in drive even when in park, reverse, neutral or drive

Is it a floor shift or column? The simplest explanation would be that the lever from the shifter is not connected to the transmission. If it is shifted with a cable from the shifter going to the transmission make sure the cable is still attached to the transmission and shifter.You need to get under the vehicle and have someone operate the shifter while you inspect it and make sure it is moving the lever on the transmission. It is apparent the transmission is stuck in drive mode and the lever or cable changing modes is not connected either at the shifter or transmission.

Why does shifter solenoid keep shorting out?

shifter. no year vitara. 1989 to 2012?
no symptoms.? (fire?, blowing fuses,?)
the car must be a 3 speed or 4speed automatic and not the 5 speed stick box.
and if automatic, it has feature (usa laws) called a Park-loc-kout
solenoid. located under the shifter console.
is that burning up? the actual solenoid coil, melted and now 0 ohms resistance?
It should not never do that (1 in million odds)

this solenoid?

P0826 Nissan - Manual Mode Switch Circuit
Possible causes: - Faulty Manual mode select switch (Built into control device, shifter)
- Faulty Manual mode position select switch (Built into control device, shifter)
- Faulty Control Device (Shifter)
- Control Device harness is open or shorted
- Control Device circuit poor electrical connection

When is the code detected? When an impossible pattern of switch signals is detected, a malfunction is detected.

Possible symptoms: - Engine Light ON (or Service Engine Soon Warning Light)

P0826 Nissan Description: Manual mode switch is installed in shift control device. The manual mode switch sends shift up and shift down switch signals to Transmission Control Module (TCM) with Control Area Network (CAN) communication.

TCM sends the switch signals to combination meter via CAN communication line. Then manual mode switch position is indicated on the shift position indicator.

When my GE WPRE6100G1WT top load washer is performing normal agitation, there's a load banging noise. I was told it may be the Mode Shifter gone bad. I've checked the counter weight, balance rods, bel

Yup, it's the mode shifter. You're going to need to change out the shaft and modes shifter assembly, along with replacing the tub seal.

You can get all of that with this kit:

And, here is the video of how to change it:

Good luck!

I would like to ask if you have s wiring diagram of lifsn cdi with 4 pin so that it is easy for me to finda where is the source, pulser coil and ignition coil

The coils are behind the flywheel witch is located be hind the air shroud located on the shifter and chain side you should have about 3-4 bolts to remove plus ur shifter and ull find ur coils u are looking for. This is all you need to know to fix a coil problem or a cdi problem.

GE washer. New belt, motor worked one cycle. On second run, all works but no motor running at all. 4 flashes on pc board. Try to reset with 6 hood open in 12 secs. but not sure hood switch works. How...


The error code E4 (4 flashes of teh light) means the the shifter coil is open..the shifter coil is part of the mode repair that the mode shaft would need to be replaced...the mode shaft is in the center of the tub its what the agitator and the inner tub connect to and would require disassambly of just about the entire washer to replace it.

As far a s testing the lid switch with a ohm meter its just a matter of determining via the wiring diagram in the control panel and find the 2 wires on it and where the connect to (sorry dont remember off hand what two wires they are) to test it when the lid is closed on those 2 wires should have continuty with ZERO omhs resistiance and when the lid is open the that circuit should be opened
