Question about Ford Escape
This transmission is electronically controlled so the very 1st thing u need to do is have the transmission control module tested for fault codes, this will give direction to what the problem is, it could be as simple as a defective transmission electrical connector or range selector switch to a transmission hydraulic failure from a defective high pressure pump inside the transmission, but the fault code test is crucial to locating the cause of this failure. I strongly suggest you have a Ford dealer do these tests, they have all the right equipment to test this transmission and can go u the much faster than a outside shop. I am a 25 year veteran Ford dealer technician so I do have 1st hand knowledge of this kind of problem.

Does the truck roll after you put it in gear,like as if it was in neutral?If so,the shift cable is broken,or has come loose at the transmission,check this and go from there.If the shift cable is fine,check to see if the shift lever is moving around the shift shaft coming out of transmission.I hope this was helpful,if so,please let us know,thank you.

On these electricaly controlled automatic transmissions there are shift solenoids that engage the transmission into gear. Unfortunately a dealer or qualified transmission repair shop will need to be employed in order to retreive the transmission computer's trouble codes to more adequately narrow down what the issue is, of course before doing this check the obvious things, make sure that the transmission fluid is up to the correct level (check with engine running) check all fuses, and you might want to get under the vehicle to inspect the wiring going into the transmission make sure no wires are broken or disconnected.
