There is no neutral, there is a modification for "tricking" it into neutral, but these are the best solutions I can offer, aside from puling the driveshaft.

For whatever reason, someone at Ford didn't see fit to design the electronic control module to make any use of this neutral position.

And be sure to keep the transmission in gear (manual) or park (automatic).
