Could be the brake switch, or the solenoid that locks the shifter in park.
Both components would need to be tested for voltage.

check the brake lights to see if they work ithey do then the problem is in the locking mechanism, however if the brake lights sont work then first check the fuse, check the wires and the connector that hooks up to the brake switch under the pedal and if it is dammaged repair as needed and if yo get the lights working yo have made the lock to work also!!

This is probably caused by:

a loose door switch, or

a loose connection to a door switch, or

a defective (dirty / corroded) door switch.

There is a false signal being sent that a door is open / ajar.

2009 Ford Escape won't shift into gear


Check to see if your brake lights are burning as the shift interlock works through the brake light circuit. Could be a simple brake light switch at the pedal or LCM Lighting Control Module relay but as new as it is I would check the brake light switch and its connection.

I have a 2009 ford escape that will not shift out of park without pressing the brake pedal multiple times. All lights work on car.


Check to see if your brake lights are working. Sometimes this is as simple as replacing the brake light switch.

My 2007 ford escape sometimes get stuck in park


Look under the dash, on the brake pedal arm. There are one or two switches that activate brakes lights and shift unlock. Check for loose mounting nut or a missing rubber nubber. Look on the floor for something not usually found there. These switches are adjustable and it may be as simple as adjusting them. Have a helper look for brake lights on and shift lever unlocked while you push the switches with your finger. Remember to set the park brake first. Could just be a bad switch or loose connector.

CHECK IF THE BRAKE LIGHT COME ON WHEN YOU HIT THE BRAKE PEDAL. IF DON'T. CHECK BRAKE LIGHT FUSE. COULD BE A BRAKE SWITCH. THERE IS A shift lock solenoid that receives a signal when the key is on and the brake pedal is depressed that allows you to move the shift lever to be taken out of park.

Sounds like you might be having a issue with brake light switch which is locate on top part of brake pedal. The shift lock mechanism works off of the brake switch.
