Asked by Feb 02, 2015 at 05:00 PM about the 2002 Ford Explorer XLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 2002 Explorer XLT 4WD, with an apparently seized 4.0 v6.  I need to move the vehicle to replace the engine.  What is required to move the transmission to Neutral as the battery is disconnected and the vehicle will not start?  I can reconnect the battery of course.  It would not shift when the battery was attached.

On my 2003 a battery has to be in the vehicle for it to be taken out of park. If you have a battery connect it and it will probably move.
