回答“2009 Ford Escape - Wont shift out of park”I have the same problem just now with my 2009 ford escape. On the right side of the gear shift is a little square , it’s called the brake transmission shift interlock, carefully pry this cover off. push the screwdriver straight down and you will hear a click. You can now come out of park etc. But the minute I put the cover back, I am back to square 1 .
