This happened to a friend. It was a bad fuse under the hood. Not the fuse box inside vehicle...the one by the battery.

Shift cable or linkage might be out of adjustment neutral safety switch may be affected... Or shift indicator on dash maybe one position off... Being that you can start it in neutral but it jumps into reverse does indicate adjustment issue between your shifter and transmission

A 02 sensor will not keep your car from starting

Won't start and some acceleration problems

Ford Explorer 2011 Suv, automatic, 4 wheel drive 690000 miles
So this is the second winter in a row that I verify had to replace my battery multiple times. It's only been a week but again today my car wouldn't start. Also once my car is jumped and running game I'm having problems accelerating. If I need to accelerate quickly my check engine light will come and the car almost stalls. Then sometimes while in drive (usually I notice this when on the highway) sometimes my car will de-accelerate for a couple of seconds and I can hear a high pitched noise. I have no idea what this could be and when my car was just in to have the battery replaced my internal computer showed no other issies. I own a 2011 Ford Explorer with about 70,000 miles on it. I am the second owner and I love in Pennsylvania so our winters can be pretty cold!

Car wont crank

Ford Explorer 1997 v-6 260000 miles
I have changed the battery and the starter because my car sometimes starts and then wont start. I've wiggled the ignition and the tilt steering wheel to check if it was the ignition and it started. Then i turned car off and next day would not start again. I haven't gotten the car to start again since. Maybe relay?

Trouble starting

Ford Explorer 1997 4L v6 sohc 76000 miles
When you put the key in ignition and turn to start the car will not start,you turn the key to off and remove the key all the dash lights stay on only way to turn them off is disconnect the battery. We can start the car with a wire from battery to starter relay but it will not switch off and carries on running even with key out so we have to pull the battery lead off or unplug the ignition switch. The ignition switch and ignition barrel have been replaced but this has not solved the problem. Any help will be appreciated

Engine won't turn

Ford Explorer 2004 4l ohc xlt auto 150000 miles
Car ran o. K. Yesterday. Went to start today and motor won't turn over. Removed starter and tried to turn motor over with a long wrench on the front pulley but it will not move in any direction. The motor was running normally without any noises at all yesterday. I have removed spark plugs but it still will not turn by using wrench on harmonic balance nut. Any suggestions please!!!!!!!!
