Can't get my Ford Escort out of park?

Check to see if your brake lights work. The brakes have to be pushed to get it out of park. If the brake lights don't work check the switch at the pedal. If the brake lights work the problem is with the shift interlock mechanism. There is a slot in the console with a plug in it. Take the plug out and insert a small screwdriver. This will allow you to shift out of park. To fix the shift interlock you must take the console off. The shift interlock is about $37 and easy to replace.
