There are a couple of reasons why a 2001 Ford Escape will not move while it is in drive. The transmission may be out of the vehicle or the vehicle needs Transmission Fluid.

When you push the brakes there is a clicking in the steering column on a 2001 ford escape?

The 2001 Escape, with the gear shifter on the steering column, has an interlock solenoid located by the shifter assembly. The purpose is to lock the shifter in PARK until you depress the brake pedal. This is to prevent "sudden acceleration" where you engage the transmission with the brake off and the car shoots forward or backward. When you press the brake pedal a switch is closed that turns on the break lights and activates the solenoid, generating a magnetic field that withdraws the interlock pin, allowing you to move the shifter out of Park and into Drive or Reverse. The solenoid can make a clicking noise. We never noticed the clicking sound in our 2001 Escape until this mechanism had begun to fail, locking the shifter in Park regardless of the position of the brake pedal.

The ABS light means there is something wrong with the brakes. The car will move and drive without exploding, but your safety will be severely reduced. Please get it fixed.
