Question about 2007 Ford Fusion V6

Interlock sensor Ford Fusion, Key Stuck

My Key got stuck in my 2007 Ford Fusion AWD V6, the only way I could get it out is to disconnect the battery. After researching, I disconnected the interlock sensor which allows the key to be removed but it also disables the mechanism that allows the shifter to shift easily out of park. I can push down on the manual override and shift out of park easily but I need a solution that allows me to remove the key and shift smoothly out of park without an issue. Appreciate any help... Thanks in advance.

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!!

Hey.look under the car and see if the plug came off or a wire is broken. If all is ok with that you may have a ABS sensor that is stuck. You can remove it and clean it off and put a very little grease on it and it should free it up.

2006 Mercury Milan key stuck in ignition.


There's a TSB published by ford for this condition. It's caused by a binding shifter button.

  • KEY STUCK IN IGNITION / SHIFTER BINDING CONDITION
Publication Date: July 6, 2007
FORD: 2006-2007 Fusion LINCOLN: 2006 Zephyr MERCURY: 2006-2007 Milan
This article supersedes TSB 07-2-1 to update the Part List. ISSUE: Some 2006-2007 Fusion, Milan and 2006 Zephyr vehicles built before 9/4/2006 may exhibit a customer concern of the ignition key getting trapped or a shifter slider binding condition. Most of the key trapped conditions are caused due to a binding shifter button which does not allow the pawl to contact the park detect switch.
ACTION: Follow the Service Procedure steps to correct the condition.
SERVICE PROCEDURE If the key will not release from the ignition cylinder lock follow the Key Trapped procedure. On vehicles with a hard-to-shift shift lever into park or slider bunching/binding then follow the Shifter Slider Binding procedure. Key Trapped:
  1. Actuate knob button 5-10 times, observe for binding or sticky condition.
  2. Replace knob assembly if the knob sticks following Workshop Manual (WSM), Section 307-05. NOTE: WHEN REPLACING THE SHIFT KNOB DO NOT REUSE THE SCREWS. REMOVE AND DISCARD THE SCREWS. INSTALL TWO NEW SCREWS AND TIGHTEN TO 18 LB-IN (2 N-m). DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE SCREWS OR DAMAGE MAY OCCUR.
Shifter Slider Binding:
  1. If shifter slider is bunched up or binding, replace bezel assembly following WSM, Section 307-05. NOTE: WHEN REPLACING THE BEZEL, CARE NEEDS TO BE TAKEN TO ENSURE THAT THE BRAKE SHIFT INTERLOCK OVERRIDE TAB IS PROPERLY ALIGNED INTO ITS GUIDE. REFER TO FIGURE 1.

    Figure 1 - Article 07-14-7

    NOTE: WHEN REINSTALLING THE SHIFT KNOB DO NOT REUSE THE SCREWS. REMOVE AND DISCARD THE SCREWS. INSTALL TWO NEW SCREWS AND TIGHTEN TO 18 LB-IN (2 N-m). DO NOT OVER TIGHTEN THE SCREWS OR DAMAGE MAY OCCUR. NOTE: IF OVERRIDE CAP IS DAMAGED DURING REPAIR, IT IS AVAILABLE SEPARATELY.

Check for power and ground at the break, transmission, interlock switch located at the gear shift - if you have power and ground interlock is faulty - replace interlock switch. If no power and ground - check circuit continuity.

Key stuck in ignition 2007 Ford Fusion


i read other forums and found out if you remove the ring around the shifter button it releases the key. sometimes this gets stuck and the car thinks it is still in gear so it will not allow the key to release. this worked when it happen to me!
