My 2001 Ford Escort wonít shift into any gear. The shifter wonít
move, the car starts fine but canít put into reverse or any gear. Any
suggestions to what I can check myself before I have to tow it to a
repair shop. Never had any problems before until this morning.

Re: 2001 ford escort won't shift to any gear

Could be lots of things, but my Taurus wouldn't shift out of park due to a
$2 electronic part. Guy at the dealership did it for me, wrote off half the
labor for a total of $50. That and the towing of the stupid thing....

Re: 2001 ford escort won't shift to any gear

Check your brake lites, check the bulbs and the switch

Also you can turn ignition key to "run" (dont start!) , shift car to
neutral, start car and shift to D or R and drive
