Customer Question
I have a 2015...

I have a 2015 Ford transit 150 cargo Van and I just pulled on to a job site and it would not shift into park it stayed in reverse and I could not get it out of reverse so I shut it off and tried every possible combination of things I could think of to get the shifter to move out of reverse but it will not. So if you don't help me I am absolutely stuck

Mechanic's Assistant: Do you have brake lights? Have any trouble codes popped up?

No trouble codes it popped up and as far as brake light I have them

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your Transit T150 yourself? What have you tried so far?

I have tried calling you and trying to depress the brake release the shifter with the key and the on position and that's all I've tried this happened 10 minutes ago

Mechanic's Assistant: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?

Only that there is 73000 miles on it and it has not given me any trouble on anything

Hello, the shifter is stuck in reverse or if feels sloppy when you move it like it has a broken cable?

It is stuck tightly in reverse

Ok if the shifter wont move. Go under the vehicle to the transmission with the vehicle not running and the parking brake set. DIsconnect the shifter cable and see if the shifter linkage on the transmission will move manually. If it does then it sounds like the shifter cable is broken and would need to be replaced.

I dont know anything about vehicles. I do not know how to identify a cable
Ford Mechanic: HDGENE, Ford Senior Master/Diesel/Trans replied 21 days ago

On the drivers side of the transmission is a cable that hooks up to the shifter linkage, it will have an eyelet hooking it to the shifter linkage. Pop it off and try to manually move the shift linkage. If that moves, clicks into each gear range forward and backwards, the shifter cable needs to be replaced.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.
