Make sure that your brake switch at the pedal is not broken or loose alos check the wiring connector at the brake light switch, if it is ok then the problem is in the switch at the shifter itself it is a safety feature to preven accidental drive away of vehicles.

1995 Ford Escort Wagon Automatic, Won't shift


Hi there,

Most modern automatic cars require the driver to depress the brake pedal first, to allow releasing the gear out of Park.

Some automatic transmissions also provide an 'overide' switch near the gear lever, to allow manual release of the gear lever.

If neither of the above resolve this, then you will need to check the operation of your brake switch, mounted on the brake pedal.

Have standard automatic floor shifter--can not get car out of park (1993 Escort Wagon)


Hello, Most likely if you look under the dash of your car, at the Brake pedal levers, you will find a switch. This is the switch that makes it necessary to put your foot on the brake before shifting.

Usually a foot can move or break this switch and the car does not know the Brake pedal is being pressed. Most likely your Brake lights are not working either. This switch is known as an Interlock Brake switch and is available at local autoparts stores.

You may just need to reposition this switch if it is not damaged and it will continue to work. Or the plastic may be broken and you will need a new one.

I have a 98 escort wagon that wont start replaced


I know this is going to sound stupid, but I've done it before, did you put he car in park? You might also want to try it in neutral also. If neither of these two tests work, you can try to jump across the solinoid on the fender well. Don't stand in front of the car, and make sure that the parking brake is set, just in case it starts and tries to run you down. If jumping across the two big posts cranks the motor, chances are either the solinoid or the electrical half of the ignition switch is bad.

Automatic ford escort 1998 will not shift out of "park"


There is a switch between the brake and the transmission. I forget what its called but unless you have your brake pedal pressed your car will not shift out of park. If you do have your brake pedal pressed there may be something wrong with the sensor.
