I would say it has something to do with this !
Shift Interlock System An ignition/shifter interlock mechanism is installed to prevent shifting the transaxle out of the PARK position unless the ignition switch is rotated to RUN and the brake pedal is applied. The floor shift interlock system consists of:
  • an actuator assembly integral to the ignition/shifter interlock cable assembly.
  • a bracket retaining the actuator.
  • the necessary wiring.
The solenoid is energized when the ignition switch is turned to the RUN position, locking the transaxle range selector lever in the PARK position. When the brake pedal is applied and the stoplight switch (13480) is activated, the ignition/shifter interlock actuator is deactivated and the transaxle range selector lever can be moved out of the PARK position.

No. However the IAC (Idle Air Control) valve could be giving you this problem. Have the IAC checked out. Sometimes the solenoid will cease to function. Also take it off and check for any carbon deposits that may be blocking the idle air bypass ports.

The second thing to check would be the EGR valve.

Do you have a check engine light? Had the codes read to determine problem codes?

Sometimes valet keys will make the vehicle run in limp mode so no joy riding is possible. Which limp mode limits the power the car will put out while driving.

The electronic's , control modules , driver door electronic control module ,the lighting control module , SCP serial data communication network . You have no way of fixing this . A factory scan tool would be needed to check communication on the SCP data network .

010 Ford SCP Communications
You would need factory service info. to find control moduels , there power an ground circuits to do electrical testing . Voltage drop testing etc....
You could very easily make thing's worst , short out the network an the vehicle will do nothing . You have no idea of the complexity of this .

There is a diagnostic port that some of the better scanners can use to read the air suspension. It is the cheapest way because you only replace the bad component. The air suspension is designed to let the air out when you either open a door and/or open the trunk. It is attempting to lower the car to make the loading of the trunk and passengers easier. The height levelers are then suppose to recover the ride height and straighten the body to ride level..

The TCM is integrated into the PCM module. .
The PCM/ECM is under hood on the firewall around the master cylinder, there should be two to three bolts that need removal to come out on front side of fire wall. Disconnect the battery negative cable before any work is done.

First thing I would check is the thermostat. You can Google how to take it out. Put it in a pan with boiling water it should open. If it doesn't get a new one. They're usually not that expensive. Hope that helps.

Inside of the door will you will see a small button switch. This switch is what the computer uses to tell if there is an open door and turn on the interior lights. It should be located near the front of the door will and about half way up in the door jam. If you can see which switch is sticking they are simple to remove and replace. They will have a hex shaped bottum that resembles a bolt. Simply turn the old switch out and replace it with a new one readily available at most autopart stores and car dealerships (that have a parts department). You should never attempt to clean or oil any electrical component of a vehicle as this may chase the part to short out and pose a fire hazard. As always if you are unsure of what you are looking for (door jam light switch) please consult a professional. Happy motoring.
