SOURCE: Shifter is stuck in neutral and will not move

happened to me. There's a cheap plastic retaining clip which holds some kind of electrical cable to the mechanical assembly. THis clip broke on me trying to move the shifter into drive one day. THe shifter was actually able to be placed into park again but the indicator read, "D". I had to remove all the plastic around the steering wheel so that I could view underneath it. Once I located the assembly and discovered the broken plastic retainer I re-connected the cable to it's connector and secured it in place with multiple rubber "o-rings". I'm sorry that I don't remeber the sizes. It's been about a year and 1/2 and the shifter works better than before. Took about one and a half hours to fix after trying different sizes of "o-rings" that I had handy. I'm sure a cotter pin would work as well.

You will need to go to a Ford dealership and first get the part. The remove the radio's center trim panel. two screws are hidden at the bottom. Removet that panel the remove all screws that hold in the cluster trim. After the trim is removed, remove thecluster screws. You will see the cable which leads into the shift bowl. That is what is removed and replaced

You did not need to remove the heater box to replace the cable. There is a hole in the floor the cable passes through.

If you cannot shift with your foot on the brake, your vehicle's neutral shift interlock may have failed. This is a safety device that prevents the vehicle from being put in gear unless the driver's foot is on the brake. This system is an electronic circuit, and a failure anywhere in the system can prevent you from shifting into gear from either Park or Neutral.

Newer Escapes have an override built in. You will need a small flat-bladed screwdriver to activate the override.

To the right of the shifter handle is a small rectangular access cover, approximately 1 cm by 0.75 cm. Remove this cover. Inside is a small intermittent switch. Put your foot on the brake. Use the point of the screwdriver to depress the switch and, with the switch depressed, attempt to shift the vehicle into gear. If the vehicle does shift into gear, take it to the dealer for service; your shift interlock will probably require a fuse or relay replacement. If the vehicle still will not shift, the transmission system may be malfunctioning. Contact your dealer for service.

You may want to check the shifter cable. The cable is what connects the shifter to the transmission. Have someone shift the shifter while you look under the car if its rear wheel drive and if its front wheel drive look under the hood. PS don't start the car

Ford Escape Transmission Shifter Problems


From 2001 through 2002 Ford used a plastic bushing on both ends of the transmission shifter cable that disintegrates over time and when it breaks your cable will slide off the steel stud either under the hood or inside your steering column, making it impossible for you to shift gears. The expensive replacement cable has the same plastic bushings so I decided to fix mine a better way. I had to search a while and measure many steel bushings before finding one that had the perfect inside and outside diameter. Finally I found a wire splice ferrule (12.5 - 14 ga.) used in fencing sold at Tractor Supply http://www.tractorsupply.com/en/store/fence-wire-ferrules-9-to-12-1-2-ga-pack-of-50 Simply drill a small hole at one end for a cotter pin and then press the ferrule onto the steel stud with pliers. Slide your shifter cable on it and then add a nylon washer and cotter pin. (which the factory should have done for safety anyway!!!!)

Check your shifter cable. I'm dealing with something similar. I actually just need the rubber busher and not the entire cable. My neighbor is a mechanic...thank God...and from what I hear it's an easy DIY. Good luck.
