I have a 2013 Edge (49,900 miles), and I am wondering if I am having a similar issue. I started having problems last week with a dead battery, so I took it to a repair shop (not a Ford dealer) and they put it on some kind of tester that indicated my battery was toast. I had the battery replaced, and no problems starting since. However, my wife started noticing a high frequency ringing noise coming from the vehicle with it not running, key out of the ignition. I cannot hear it. Yesterday, I noticed a random clicking noise again with the engine not running, key out of the ignition. I think the clicking is the starter solenoid. Between the noise my wife is hearing, and the clicking I am hearing, this seems to me like there is something staying active? I am not seeing any warning messages about the shifter not being in park, but I am not sure what else would be causing this issue?

Could be the brake-shift interlock.   Can you tell where the clicking is coming from?   See if the taillights are flashing when it's clicking.

Tail lights do not flash with the clicking.

Is the clicking coming from near the shifter?

A new switch is now available from Ford to fix the issue, it is more expensive than the solution in the OP.

Great! Ford is buying the $5.02 switch and selling it 'on sale' for $16 :(. My $5.02 switch has been working 'perfect' for over 6 months :)

I have to do the fix now and copy/pasted the DD2000GT solution into MS Word and cleaned it up for printing.
 

  1. Set the parking brake
  2. Start your car and move the shifter into drive (you need to do this so the console cover can move back away from the dash face-plate)
  3. Turn the car back off.
  4. Remove the center console with the cup holders.
  5. Remove the two side trim pieces by pulling straight up.
  6. Remove the 6 screws holding this cover down under the trim pieces with a Torx T-20 bit.
  7. Separate the center console from the dash face-plate - this also pulls straight out (towards the shifter) and is kind of difficult so pull carefully but aggressively. Pull straight up on the console from the rear closest to the storage box and it will pop loose and up. You will not be able to pull it up much due to a few wires still attached to the console, but it is more than enough to get the job done.
  8. Working from the passenger side, locate the existing microswitch mounted to the shifter towards the front. Pry it away from the shifter using a thin blade flathead screwdriver and un-route the wiring so you can pull this switch out enough to work with it. I cut the leads off the old switch where it was soldered in place and I had enough wire sticking out that I could splice the new one in easily. NOTE - Leave just a little of the wire coloring on the old switch so you can match the wires up to the new switch leads as the colors are not the same.
  9. Take the lever off the old switch and press it into place on the new switch,
  10.  Re-mount the new switch to the shifter by pressing the posts into the appropriate holes on the shifter base. NOTE - install the switch with the lever down and the leads on top.
  11. Put the console cover back into place just enough so you can operate the shifter.
  12. Start the car and test your splices before putting everything back in place in case you need to pull it back out and fix the wiring.
  13. After you’re sure everything is fine, put the console back together in the reverse order you took it out.
  14. Smile that you finally fixed this annoying problem for $5 and less than an hours work!

    *EDIT The forum broke the MS Word formatting, of course

My pleasure, especially seeing how much help you guys provide.

Just a note on the switch replacement process. The new switch wire color DOES NOT match the old wires. Even though step 14 says this, I missed it. (I edited that part so no one else can miss it)

I followed the above procedure to the letter. When I was done, the switch seemed to be in the toggled ON mode, until in shifted into park. When in park, it still said SHIFT TO PARK, until you toggled the shifter trigger.

I connected the new switch to the old wires, matching the old black wire to the new black one. Then the old red wire to the new red wire (obviously). And the old blue wire had to go with the new green wire, right? Nope.

Turns out the black is pretty obvious, but the new red wire goes to the old blue wire and the new green wire goes to the old red wire. Not at all intuitive.

Good luck!

In post #1 of this Thread it says the colors don't match. I did what post #1 said to do and didn't have any problems figuring out the wiring colors. Just saying....:)

For sure. I even mentioned that I missed it, even though its plainly stated.

I made a mistake and assumed. Just trying to help the next person that half-assed readsthe directions.

Any tips for step four? (ha!) I'm not sure if I missed anything but I can't find instructions on how to first remove the console before removing the sides.

Will the Omron D2HW - BL201M work with a 2012 Lincoln MKS.? I'm getting the same message "shift to park"
