Question about 2005 Ford Escape
I have a 2005 Escape Hybrid. Today I have had problems getting the vehicle to go into gear. When I get it into gear it's fine but when I stop I can't get the keys out of the ignition. It's really cold. Could this be a problem Any ideas Please let me know...Thanks...Bill
It could also be a nuteral safty switch if the POV is an automatic. the switch prevents the car from starting or ingaging any gear/.

Hi Bill, I had the same problem with a Mitsubishi Pajero, I pulled up and put the gear lever into park turned off the ignition and blow me I tried and tried to get the key's out.
After 3/4s of an hour I realised the selector button on the Auto gear stick was stuck in! with a bit of fiddling I got it out and Bingo the key's too.
Later a little Wd40 and it hsn't done it since. So maesure he lever is well into park, parking brake on and button all te way out.
Good Luck! and Merry Christmas,
