Question about 2003 Ford Escort
You might have a damaged brake switch located behind the brake pedal. Reach it with your hand and verify if the switch is stuck. If when you pull it it goes back in, you have a damaged switch and needs replacement.

Replace the brake light switch on the pedal try removing it first and pulling out the plunger and refitting it sometimes this fixes the problem

my car got stuck in park several times, i'm the brake lights would come on but i couldnt push the button to make my car move out of park...there's a tab on the right side at the top of the gear shifter console pop it out, stick a skrew driver down in and that should release it if that's your problem...it's a little bit of a rig, but it works, havent been stuck in park since

I have the same problem with my 03 Focus hatchback! Someone stoppedme yesterday to tell me that they looked like they were always on when i was driving but when i was in "Park" they worked... This particular driver was also driving a focus hatchback and asked me if my Cruise Control was working.. It actually was not and he told me the same thing happened with his focus. He said it was a wire attached to the back brake lights that had broken. I have not yet gotten it fixed. has anyone else had this problem?
