02 escort, won't come out of Park
My wife has an 02 escort with auto and floor shift and it just recently started to refuse to come out of park. The first time, out of desperation, I turned the steering wheel all the way to each extreme and it released as it should. This was probably just a coincidence, as it don't always do the trick. Most of the time I can't hear the brake interlock click, but it works. I guess it don't always make alot of noise. I'm guessing either the interlock solenoid ( for lack of a better name) isn't moving it's full travel ( possibly due to the recent cold weather) or the detent cable on the push button might be stretched.
Can somebody give me a clue how to get the center console out so I can observe and dianose the problem? Any input as to the cuase will be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
