Sounds like the range sensor might be bad. Is it a 3 liter or 2.3

2001 escape vehicle dies when put into reverse


If it also dies in drive it is a TCC (torque converter control/lockup) valve that is stuck or the TCC solenoid. If it drives forward, then it is internal problems. Planetary gears/sun gears that have broken.

2001 Ford Escape shift locked in park position, but display shows neutral.


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.

What is a detent on a shifter


A detent is a notch or notches in a part used to keep a shifter (in this case) at a certain position. Be that an automatic or stick-shift. You can imply that the shift pattern on a stick-shift has detents for each gear as the shift lever locks and slides in and out of each position for that gear to work when the clutch is released. The detents on an automatic can resemble "steps" which engage a different gear or series of gears(drive) when a certain step is locked into position by a pressure bar or pressure lever.

Sometimes the pressure bar or pressure lever is spring loaded and your hand works against that tension to select a gear or function(drive). There may be an adjustment for the spring tension, or the spring is too weak and the shift assembly must be replaced.

With electronic shift solenoids, some of the shift assembly is different than with the old-style mechanical shifter. The action may be fly by wire with electronic shifts.

I do not know what you have, so there may be differences.

Gear Shift not shifting properly


Depending on whether it is a column shift or floor, you have to get the linkage loose enough to get the car in neutral, move the selector back to the proper setting, and tighten everything up.

If the car is not setting on a hill or incline, you should be able to move the shift levers by hand when you've loosened the linkage and move it until it is in neutral. Put on jack stands and chock the wheels that are on the ground.

Can't remove my Key but in park


The transmission range sensor is malfunctioning. The range sensor tells the computer what gear the selector lever is in. If it will not read the park position, it will not disengage the interlock system. Take it to a good repair shop that you trust and have them check the function of the sensor. Good Luck.
