SOURCE: When shifting automatic trans in reverse theres a hesitation

I think what you were saying is your reverse slams, and only when you give it gas.
You can try to do the reverse slam fix, which is easy to do:

If it doesn't work, your valve body is probably bad, here is how to swap it, in case you are up for the challenge:

SOURCE: 2001 Ford Escape not responding to shift selector

the shifter which hooks to the box under the hood is missing a rubber ring, causing it to slip off. just go to an auto parts store and buy some shifter rings, and press one on

Ineed afuse legend for my ford focus 06 to locate the reversing light fuse


There isn't a fuse for the reverse lights. The wires run threw the Neutral safety/range selector switch. Mounted on the transmission, under the shift cable.

2004 f 150 reverse lights don't come one


First of all, go to the central junction box (CJB) and check 10A fuse 14 which feeds power to the DTR sensor. Next, check 20A fuse 10 which feeeds power to the reverse relay. Check the reversing lamps for burnout. Start the engine and place the selector in R and check the reversing lamps. If they do not turn on, either the DTR or the reversing relay is defective

Trans range sensor malfunction p0705 what could that be


This code is caused by either a defective range selector switch (also known as the neutral safety switch) or it has lost its proper adjustment due to loose attachment bolts or the connector to the switch is damaged are full of water. The switch is located on the side of the transmission and it sits over the shaft that the trans shift cable attaches to. Based On my experience as a Ford dealer technican i would think you should just replace it if it isn't loose.

I was stopped with the car in neutral and selected 4wd hw the 4x4 light is on but did not hear it engage and now I cannot get the 4x4 light to go off....tried many different combos of brake, neutral etc.


Do you have the extra shift lever on the floor or the "shift on the fly" electric selector? My 1999 only needs to be put in Neutral(with brake pedal pressed) for the Low range and the shift from 2wheel drive to 4wheel high is seamless with the Electric selector.

You might try putting the truck in reverse for a couple of feet, then to Park, and back to Neutral or Drive. Then use the Electric selector. Your year model may require a foot on the brake.

Ford has a style of selector that uses 1 wire to the Shift servo for all the drive ranges. There are resistors in the selector switch with each position making a different voltage. If the LED backlit bulb in the selector is dirty, it can throw off the voltage. I understand that the best access to the selector switch is through the opening for the radio. Once the radio is removed there are 2, 1/4inch screws holding the selector to the dash.

You can replace the selector or attempt to clean it as access is possible by removing 3 clips on the part. This made the LED changeable by providing access. There is a spring and checkball which makes the selector click into place and stay where you put it.

You can also try to clean the connections on the plugin for the selector with Electronics spray. Thats all you may need if you can jockey around the spray can to squirt the terminals on the selector switch.

With luck, my opening instructions may solve your problem. It is possible your mechanical shift linkage for the Park,Reverse,Neutral,Drive has too much play in it and an interlock is just not lining up. If you have another type of 4x4 with the extra lever on the floor there are different instructions.

I hope you feel my information was very helpful and complete. You can contact us again for more help.

Trying to locate back up light switch on toyota camry 2001


The back up light switch is built into the multi-function switch. It is located on the front of the trans axle. The shift cable is connected directly to it. There is no 'seperate' reverse switch for the back-up lights.

P0705 - Trans Range Switch Circuit

Get under the truck and look where the trans shift linkage connects to the trans, there is a post that comes out of the trans, on that post u will see a large switch with multipile wires connected to it, that is the range selector switch, you need to remove the shift arm and a couple of bolts to remove the range switch, it is adjustable, u will see the slots, make sure u put the new switch in the same position as the old one or the truck may not start.
