Check the switch on your brake pedal; it is a safety device that will not allow you to engage the transmission unless your foot is on the brakes. This device will not work without battery power and you might also have a manual over ride on the side of the shifter cover to move the selector anyway.

Why won't my 2002 platinum edition mercury sable ls engage in gear?


Sounds like the solenoid is dirty or not functioning for going into gear.

Requires a transmission rebuild to rectify which is expensive, but effective in fixing the problem and when done, will extend the life of the transmission to that of a new one.

If you've been 4X4 driving a lot it could be that your gears are binding up . Meaning . . if you've ever had your vehicle locked in 4 and decided to hit pavement without unlocking, ( even if it was only a short distance, ie: a block or to), your gears have a bind on them which in time will really cause major problems. Starting with being hard to get into and out of 4WD and grinding noises. there are a few other things it could be instead but starting with this no cost attempt to finding out, I suggest you try it. You might be suprised. Put the truck in neutral . Jack up the front and rear of the truck and secure withjack stands. the wheels should give up what bind there is at that point.
