Question about 2006 Mercury Milan
I have a 2006 mercury milan. My son came out of work to find the car won't start, there is only a clicking sound when he turns the key. The radio works and the battery is about 3 yrs. old. And the gear shift is stuck in park. where do I begin to figure out what is wrong? He said that when he put it in park he heard a pop sound but didn't really think to much about it at the time.
First the battery is drained. This will cause the clicking sound and possibly the shifter not releasing, if the voltage is low enough. The pop noise, not really sure about. Could be a fuse that popped. But a bad fuse wouldn't cause the starter to click. It would turn the engine or you would have nothing.

Have a load test done on the battery. If it checks out good, take a voltmeter to the battery and have an assistant rotate the engine. If you see more than a 2 volt drop when the car is being started, the starter is heading south.

See if u have brake lights. This is what energizes the shifter solenoid. There are 2 fuses u can check both are in the under dash fuse panel. Fuse 23 (15amp) and fuse 26 (7.5amp).
To get it out of park turn igntion switch on stopping just short of engerizing the electronics then u should be able to get it out of park and into neutral.

sounds like your brake/shift interlock solenoid is not releasing.
Your owner manual will tell you how to bypass in emergency.
Check your fuse first. fuse panel on instrument panel.
Please rate as fixed if this helps.
Fuse 23 - 1 5 amp
Fuse 34 - 7 1/2 amp
check enigne light not related.
The selector lever lock can be moved mechanically out of position ”P" when for example the battery is disconnected or completely discharged.
Using a ball point pen or similar item as an unlocking lever, push forward and hold in position.
Move the selector lever out of position "P".
NOTE: If the selector lever is moved back to ”P" it is re-locked.

Even though your current radio has an AUX button the radio is not programmed to utilize it.
There is no 'easy' way to add the '07 Job 2 and later year model's factory Aux input.
You will need to buy an aftermarket solution. Something like this http://pac-audio.com/productDetails.aspx?ProductId=821&CategoryID=24
