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.

2002 Ford Escort gear shift linkage is stuck in park


It's the fuse that is blown which prevent's you from moving the gear from Park to anything else. The fuse box, on a 1995 Escort is on the drivers' side by the break pedal, I'm not sure where your fuse box is. Check the guide to see which fuse is the one for "Stop" and replace it, problem is I'm not sure what causes this and it's driving me crazy because it keeps on doing it. I've gone through so many fuses, there has to be a short somewhere...but I have no idea where.

Are shift settings supposed to light up? Is it a


Yes, they are supposed to light up. I believe that's on the same fuse as the instrument cluster, so if that lights up don't worry about the fuse. It's probably just a burnt out bulb. To replace, remove the knob - 2 screws, one in the front one on the rh side lift up, use thread lock to install, remove the floor console - seats forward remove one screw each side in the back, pull up to remove the parking brake console, seats rearward remove 2 screws from shift console, 2 pushpins each side, remove cupholders, lift and remove console. four screws to remove dial bezel then you'll see the connector for the lamp (the parking brake handle and gear selector will have to be moved to different positions to move console)

Can't get my 2000 ford taurus out of park


The gear selector is locked until the system detects the brake pedal is being pressed, the brake circuit then sends a signal to the shifter release solenoid to pull a pin back and let you shift out of park, this is a safety feature required by federal law, U need to have someone see if the brake lights go on when you press the pedal, if they don't check the switch at the top of the brake pedal, if the brake lights work then the little solenoid is defective.
