#1 of 8 2005 Escape Ignition Problem
Dec 06, 2007 (12:59 pm)
Has anyone been able to resolve the problem with sticky ingnitions on Ford Escapes? My escape seems to have a problem popping into park and I can not remove the key until the care decides to pop into park? I would think it is covered under the warranty. I had a ford dealer look at it but they could not re-create the problem. The key issue seems to be affected by the gear shift not popping back to park.

My wife is having the same problem with her Escape. The key can not be removed from the ignition for awhile. I noticed that the ignition selector does not return to the park location.
Anyone had any resoultion to the prior posts?

Turn the ignition on.Engine starts even though the key has not been turned to the far right. In fact the engine starts quicker than by turning the key to the 'START'position.I have lubricated the switch with EXTRA FINE GRAPHITE but no change. Any ideas?

I believe that is a real feature. It's called 'quick start' or something like that.

I cannot activate my scanner in the Key On Engine Off mode.There is no reference to'quick start'in my owner's guide.

You can try searching over at blueovalnews dot com.
Not sure if it applies to the Escape, but I am pretty sure I read about it there.
It was a while ago.
