It's the brake switch. It tells your break lights to come on.

The shift solenoid is under the console in the shift assembly.

A 1991 Ford Escort will not shift into overdrive if the overdrive switch has been turned off or the transmission is failing. A mechanic or local dealership can diagnose and repair both issues.

Probably a bad or malfunctioning modulator valve in the transmission. A good shop can tell you with their computer equipment.

The hood on my girlfriend's Escort has issues with the hood release. I have always just stuck something in the hood release under the dash while I opened it via the lever under the hood.

Drop the tranny pan and remove your transmission filter once that is done your shift solenoid is right there

You take the console out and then the shift interlock solenoid is easily put in. A piece of cake once you get the console off.

forget to tell, the car as an automatic transmission

I'd bet that the clutch is dragging, not releasing fully.

To repair a transmission that is stuck in gear on a 1989 Ford Escort 1.9L CFI, it will be necessary to drop the transmission out of the vehicle. It will probably have to be overhauled by replacing a belt or fixing the linkage, that is causing it to be stuck in gear.

Check all the linkage from the transmission.

I have a 99 an on the shift console there's a small plastic cap at top rt above "P" pull it off. It's a pretty small opening but I stuck drinking straw in an pressed button to unlock. It needs fixed but until u can it will keep u from being stuck.
