Hi, To get the problem solved you will need to have a new ignition installed. The new ignition will have it's own key. You can try to replace it yourself but I warn you qualified mechanics can have real problems with this so I highly recommend taking it to a professional. The ools alone will cost more then a mechanic. I suggest you purchase the part and take the car with the part to a Professional.

Thanks for choosing FIXYA

SOURCE: Can't get my 2000 ford taurus out of park

The gear selector is locked until the system detects the brake pedal is being pressed, the brake circuit then sends a signal to the shifter release solenoid to pull a pin back and let you shift out of park, this is a safety feature required by federal law, U need to have someone see if the brake lights go on when you press the pedal, if they don't check the switch at the top of the brake pedal, if the brake lights work then the little solenoid is defective.

SOURCE: Ford Fusion 04 Engine Management Light

I had a 2002 model 1.4 Fiesta, same problem Engine management light or ECA, electronic accelaration Control (EAC), it needs a ford dealer to do a computer diagnostic, most likely that it will need replaced.

Mt friend who is a mechanic for ford said that it was a common factory fault and is very common in 1.4 zetec /duratec petrol models.

I now have a 2007 Fusion and was quick to see if this problem had been sorted on this model, and it has!!

Hope this helps!!

2006 ford fusion key will not come out of ignition

Electronic's . Your vehicle has a couple safety system that are computer controlled . Shift interlock won't let the gear selector move from park into a gear unless you foot is pushing on the brake pedal .Brake switch is a input to the SJB - smart junction box , ford's body control module. The SJB controls a lock solenoid that will lock the gear selector . Plus has system feature that won't let the key lock an be pulled from the ignition if not in park . Problems happen that cause these not to work . Your best bet , have a qualified repair shop check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .

My daughter just bought a jaguar type s 2000, I wish she would of read the reviews I saw before she purchased this car. The same day she bought it she came to my house parked in my drive way and was...

Check to see if the brake lights are working. The park-lock is usually deactivated by the brake light circuitry. She should be able to drive the car if she turns the key one click, puts the car in neutral, and then cranks the car. Gotta believe the ford solution will work on the Jag, since Ford owns Jaguar.

When i turn my car off i can't remove the key from the ignition. i have a 2007 ford fusion

Either the ignition cyllinder is locked up, or your gear shifter isn't set. Play with the shifter button on your shifter and try to remove the button. Should be a plastic cap. That cap gets jammed sometimes, and this prevents you from removing your key.

My ford fusion wll not shift to 3rd gear and wont go above 50mph

Don't listen to these idiots on here, I am a ASE Certified Ford Technician, and Im telling you that theses trans are junk. I have a 08 Fusion in the shop now. I have done Three, yes 3 Trans swaps on this and the problem isn't fixed. Cannot get out of second gear. Its telling me shift solenoid b electrical / stuck open, its not the shift solenoids, its the TCM FLASH THE TCM. Put A jumper witre from your hot battery post, while disconnecting the negative terminal from the battery. Hook your jumper wire from the positive cable (still on battery) to your negative terminal (off the battery). This sends a ground signal to the electrodes and capicitors to discharge any power remaining, which will put the car into a relearn mode. Let the car sit for about 15 minutes like this. Then Hook your battery back up, get into your car turn the key to the on position without starting the car. Then press your break pedal 3 times then start your car. Allow the car to FULLY warm up, that means allow it to run for appr. 30 minutes, 45 on a cold day. This will allow the TCM to relearn your driving habits. Then drive your car slowly and easily and it should settle itself out. The next thing to do if that doesn't work change the TCM
