Hi
Fords suffer with earth/groud problems, check all the earth leads from the battery to the car body ensure they have a good connection, most of the time it is the rear lights that cause the problem so check them and I do mean wire by wire being careful not to miss anything, there is a small black wire in the boot that go's from the light cluster to the body make sure this has a good connection to the body also.

Lastly check the park lights around the bulb to see if the bulb is contacting the metal rim cooerctly.

Hope this helps
Regards
Dan

Could be caused by stuck contacts inside the park lamp relay . The brake light problem could be caused by a faulty brake light switch . This switch is on top of the brake pedal . Check for B+ voltage with a voltmeter before replacing the switch .
The park lamp relay is in the relay box Relay Box

2001 ford escort stuck in park lever won't move starts normally


If it wont move into gear,the safety switch is malfunctioning. You can take the plug out of the hole on the upper right side of the console just to the right of the gear shift lever. put a philips screwdriver in the hole and press down. this will manually release the gear shifter mechanism.

Sounds like your brake light switch has gone bad. It is located on your brake pedal and is easy to change and relatively inexpensive. Let me know if you have any more questions. Thanks for rating my response and for using FixYa!

make sure that your brake switch at the pedal is not broken or loose alos check the wiring connector at the brake light switch, if it is ok then the problem is in the switch at the shifter itself it is a safety feature to preven accidental drive away of vehicles.
