I have a 2004 Ford Explorer Sport and the gear indicator shift will not go into the right position but car runs fine.

Hi there


It sounds like your shift indicator cable is broken




its number 2 in the pic above ,,,,the other end of it goes to the shifter lever ,,, usaly it brakes by the shift lever and then your indicator is off ----the part is about $30 ----





in the pic above ,,this is the other end by the shifter that brakes,,, number 10 ....



if you need more info on this just , ask , we can go back and forth on this page
