Question about 2001 Ford Escort ZX2
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.

I have seen this many times before. the brake light switch is part of the releasing mechanism for the park lever. to test this switch step on the brake and have someone check if the brake lights come on. if they dont come on you need a brake light switch. which is located right behind your brake pedal. replace this switch and your problem will be solved.
