SOURCE: Brake lights

I have a 98 and had the same problem just today, I found the problem by looking up where the pedal goes to and you will see two switches that the pedal hits when released, its the switch on the left side of the car, you will notice two (well one is prolly missing since the lights wont go off) blueish rubber pads on the brake pedal that hit the switches. since the one that goes to the switch to turn the lights off is gone go out and buy a small plastic body push screw to insert in the hole the old pad was in. there ya go all fixed

SOURCE: Ford truck shifter locked in park

For the column shifter it is on the left hand side of the steering wheel column behind the knee panel.
For the console shifter it is under the cup holder, think it is still on the left side.

For either of them, the shift interlock solenoid has a white button on it, that you can press and it will release the gear shift lever.

This is for the 2004 New Body style truck, if you have a 2004 Heritage or Lightning, it is slightly different.

SOURCE: 98 Ford Escort, Emergency brake doesn't hold car.

If you have rear rotors that look like a rotor mounted on top of a drum brake, you will have an emergency brake inside the drum portion. The rear brake rotors are not flat like the front rotors for this style.

The E brakes have brake shoes and they have "Star" wheels for adjustment just like the regular drum brake. You really need to take off the rear rotors to inspect the inner drum portion. If you do adjust the E brakes without looking at the drum part, chances are the drum is pitted and rusty and you will be lucky to stop once before the E brake linings are ground off.

The other type of E brake works off the Rotor pads. You will see the brake cable attached to a lever on each wheel. There will be an Equalizing cable connecting both rear wheels with an adjustment point joining the main cable. Although the 3 clicks moves the main cable, to have both rear brakes equally tight you need the Equalizing properly adjusted.

Those are the things you need to look for.

SOURCE: I have a 1999 Ford Escort and this morning could

These cars have a shift interlock switch that prevents the car from being shifted out of park if you don't depress the brake. If your brake lights work, then the switch it good. It isn't uncommon that the interlock solenoid fails. The solenoid moves the lock release when you depress the brake. If you look on the side of the console you can see a notch cut out. You can put a screwdriver in there to push the interlock and shift it from park. Of course, you don't want to do this all the time so you either need to replace the interlock solenoid (last I checked they were about $150) or just defeat the solenoid with a zip tie. The only problem with the zip tie is that you don't have to depress the brake to shift it from park and it can be shifted from park even if the key is not in it. Your owners manual will have better detail and pictures of the interlock and where to put the screwdriver to manually shift it from park.

I have a 2000 ford escort zx2 and the shifter won't engage unless I use the override button.What is causing my shifter not to work?


There is a solenoid lock which works on the brake light circuit, if the brake lights are working it is possible the solenoid has packed up. Need to check it's operation.

Brake & Wheel issue


Thats quite a list.
The brake noise could be rust on the rotors, but you should check all 4 wheels. The pedal going to the floor is probably a faulty master cylinder.
The clicking noise around the shifter is more or less normal, its the solenoid that locks the shifter in park.
You would probably need to have a tire shop check the rear suspension for that noises.

Won't shift out of park. The button on the shifter won't depress.


check the brake pedal is pressed as there is a switch built in so you need to press the brakes to take it out of park. if pedal pressed then check switch at pedal under dashboard, check for power at switch. if power present check switch on gearlever and wiring between the two. if NO power at brake light switch then check for blown fuses hope this helps

2001 ford escort stuck in park lever won't move starts normally


If it wont move into gear,the safety switch is malfunctioning. You can take the plug out of the hole on the upper right side of the console just to the right of the gear shift lever. put a philips screwdriver in the hole and press down. this will manually release the gear shifter mechanism.

Wont go out of park


Do the brake lights work? You may have a defective brake pedal switch. There is a switch which knows if the pedal is depressed. If it's not depressed it will lock the shifter in place. That switch is located above the brake pedal under the dashboard. If the brake lights DO work, then you may have a problem with the solenoid that locks the shifter. When you press the brake, you should be able to hear a small click come from the gear selector. You can try to replace the brake switch if the brake lights don't work. Should only cost a few $$.

Car will not come out of park when you apply brake and push button on shifter


park brake switch not releasing, it is in the gear selector panel and locks the shifter into park, when you depress the brake pedal it unlocks the shifter from park. it is not hard to fix. make sure to replace it don't just remove it. you have to remove the top of the shifter lever to remove the panel and some screws in the rear cup holder and a couple of screws towards the front of the panel in the storage compartment.

Transmission problem with 2001 Ford Escort


Sounds like a problem with the shift interlock.Here's how it works:You put your foot on the brake pedal,the brake pedal switch sends voltage to a solenoid mounted on your shifter.The solenoid unlocks the shifter,and you remove it from Park.When the interlock doesnt work,it's usually the interlock solenoid mounted on the shifter malfunctioning,however the brake pedal switch,or wires to and from can also be at fault.
