HiCustomerthis is lostrider, there is an actuator that lets the shifter move from the park position, but first I need to ask you a few questions.
~Need you to look and see if the brake lights are working when the pedal is depressed?
~Is your truck a floor shifter or a column shifter?
~When you press on the brakes, do you hear a click sound from around the shifter area?
The brake lights do work when I depress the pedal and there is a click sound from the shifter area when I depress the brake.
The shifter is on the floor (center console).
its a 2006
This article supersedes TSB 07-11-12 to update the production fix date.
Some 2006-2007 Explorer 4dr, Mountaineer and 2007 Explorer Sport Trac vehicles built on or before 11/14/2006 may exhibit an intermittent condition where the shifter may require the use of the manual override function to get the shifter out of park. This condition may be caused by chemicals migrating from the shifter lubricant, and being deposited on the shifter switch contacts.
Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.
