Question about 1998 Ford Escort
Had the same problem a few months back. right next to your stick shift [automatic] there is a little cilrcle. pop that peice of plastic out and stick a screw driver streight down. there is a little flapper that is conected to your breaks by a cable. it wont let you take the car out of park without your foot on the breaks, the cable may be broke. if you push the flapper down with the screw driver then you should be able to get the car out of park. if that works you know that your cable from breaks to that flapper is bad. i didnt replace mine i just drive around with a screwdriver stuck in the hole. you kindda have to fish around with the screwdriver to get it in the right spot but that should solve your problem. i pulled up to the pumps to get gas and when i went to leave the car wouldnt go out of park, so some guy came and showed me what to do and it has worked fine sense. good luck
