If your shift lever selector is loose most likely the shifter tube is cracked and the tab that presses in the shift interlock is not being depressed because the tube is separated or the bushings that hold it in place on the steering column are severely worn or the brackets are broke this happens from trying to get the vehicle out of park without stepping on the brake and forcing the shifter also check your brake lights for functionality if the fuse or bulbs are out you won't be able to get it out of park also the brake light switch at the peddle this what I think your problem is one of these issues and I hope this helps you go to ford parts .comte look up your part if the shifter is wiggling around so you can see it in a picture otherwise advance ,autozone etc.will be cheaper good luck stephen
It's not a fuse , the SJB - smart junction box controls these lights ! This is fords body control module . If the Heater / A/C control panel ,hazard switch ,headlamp switch , message center switch all work, it is not a fuse . The gear shifter I would say the bulb is burnt out . The steering wheel lights could be out because of an open in the clock spring . The clock spring is a device inside the steering column under the steering wheel that keeps your horn , cruise control , radio buttons etc... connected electrically . How cars clock spring works
It has to do with the Power Transfer Unit, also known as a PTU. This COULD be the issue. As far as something coming apart and causing an accident, that is highly unlikely, but anything is possible. And your concern should be expressed to your dealer. Most, if not all corner shops are not equipped to handle your concern and it should be addressed by a Ford Dealership.
do you mean the door operating mechanism in the door or a door lock to this oldie ? if so its a doddle trust me just take it out complete ,if this vehicle is similar to a focus or a fusion one nut at back of door handle ? three on the lock and take it out complete with the anti theft shrouds the lot .simple
If it has a check engine light then there are fault codes, have them checked with a better scanner, the one you used may have the wrong protocol or is defective. You may need a shop or Ford dealer to look into this and read the fault codes.
I can tell you this its a lose bolt the dash board is moving witch one it is I don't know .
You can instead of taking the dash apart try to pin point the spot and wedge like card board in to see if you can make it stop this may even correct the problem .but you drive the vehicle so your the only who knows it would be hard to take it to someone else and expensive and you would be the crazy lady with the squeak .So be proactive and think about how to find it and correct it you know more now then anyone you can take it to .
it usually means traction control is off.if that light is on with either service,fault,management,engine light also on it can point to a possible fault being saved by the ecu if so get the vehicle checked out
