Ford escape 2006 gear selection is messed up
Hi i went too start my car this morning and when i
took it out of park and put it in reverse on the
dashboard it said it was in drive and moving
forward then i put it in drive and it said it was in
neutral, now when i put it in park it goes to gear
one or two. So i switched the car off and
sometimes it wont switch back on? Is this a
problem with the gearbox or gear selector? I cant
figure out if its a mechanical or electrical problem
Much help would be appreciated thanks

It really sounds like the gear selector switch, you might check to make sure it is still bolted down and not just slipping around, otherwise check the switches grounds and if they are good replace and properly adjust the switch itself. You may also have an ignition switch problem if you turned the engine off and now it won't crank, but fix the selector switch first cause the ignition switch and the gear switch are somewhat connected, if it does see that the trans is in park or nuetral it won't allow the Starter to crank over the engine.

Sound like an issue with the shift cable
Found out the problem the linken for the gear selector in the engine bay was pulled of its rubber seal that was worn out, slapped a new one in and was good as new
Great, sounds like it was an easy fix.
