It's possible the rubber donut bushings on the shifter linkage underneath the car are worn or even missing. If they have been renewed recently then adjustment of the linkage was not done properly. It is a difficult and dirty job without a car lift.
Even if you can disconnect the linkage this will not fix your overall problem of no keys and you may mess up the vehicle. Go to the dmv with your plate number and drivers lisc they can get you a copy of the title. You can also get a print out of the vehicles ownership just by going to the state police explaining the situation. They should be able to confirm with the ford dealership u are the owner.
It just means your vehicle is on and capable of movement. Because the car can be almost silent when its in its electric mode Ford gave you a little extra indicator to let you know that you're still running/
check all fuses first ... if that doesn't help, disconnect both battery cables and leave disconnected overnight .... sometimes that will reset the system (i kow for a fact it will on dodge and chrysler and i have heard it will on fords too)
Nothing to do with your alternator my friend, you did nothing to cause this situation. Block the tires and put the emergency brake on, slide under to view the shift linkage on the trans, have someone shift ti for you, if the linkage does not move, you have a broken or disconnected shift cable that needs attention.
