Can't remove my Key but in park

The car is a 2006 Ford Escape.

I can put my car in park and it will stay parked. The problem is that the vehicle does not register that it is in park and therefore i cannot remove my key. If you watch when i change gears it shows every gear i go to except it will not show that i'm park even though the vehicle is parked.

The transmission range sensor is malfunctioning. The range sensor tells the computer what gear the selector lever is in. If it will not read the park position, it will not disengage the interlock system. Take it to a good repair shop that you trust and have them check the function of the sensor. Good Luck.

Need a diagram of the parking light wire and where it is located on a 2010 ford escape, putting in remote start and can't find the right wire


This is a C/P for the 2008 Escape so I'm hoping it's the same for a 2010.
Parking Lights VIOLET/WHITE (+) DRIVERS KICK PANEL SMALLER PLUG IN D. KICK PANEL
IF THE VEHICLE IS EQUIPPED WITH AUTO LAMP YOU MUST USE TWO RELAYS, ONE ON PARKING LIGHTS AND THE OTHER ON HEADLAMPS. IF VEHICLE DOES NOT HAVE AUTO LAMPS THEN ONLY ONE RELAY IS REQUIRED AND THAT WILL BE ON JUST THE PARKING LIGHT WIRE.
SEE TECH TIP in link below;

Hope it helps you with the install.

2006 chevy cobalt LT. the key is stuck


Have you tried shifting the gears completely through and then putting the car in park. It sounds like the car isn't able to be put completely in park to release the key. Try putting the car in N and removing the key. Even thought the car may not completely be in park to release the key, The gear most likely is in park but not enough to make the switch/sensor to release.

2006 explorer. whencar put in reverse it won't move, when it does, it will jump and make a loud clanking sound


three things to check

bad Universal Joint,
with the vehicle in park and the parking brake firmly set get under the vehicle and check for excessive play at either end of the driveshaft.

bad transmission mount
get a helper, have them start the vehicle and with the parking brake firmly set and the brake pedal depressed put it in reverse (DO NOT BE UNDER VEHICLE AND STAY CLEAR OF TIRES) , watch the driveshaft and transmission for movement.

bad motor mount
open the hood, have the helper once again start the engine and put the vehicle in reverse with the parking brake set and the brake pedal depressed, watch for excessive engine movement.

There is a small sleeve just below the shift knob on the ford focus - it can slide down and trigger a sensor in the gear box that tells the car it is not in park even when it is. Push the sensor back up toward the knob (with the car in park) and the key should release.
