My 2008 escape has a flat battery and a constant clicking noise is coming from the gear selector. When I put my foot on the brake it stops but a clicking nois is also coming from the dash?

The clicking is likely the brake shift interlock. Problem might be with the shift interlock module, about a $20 part, or a fuse to it. Before spending bug bucks on a shop, try recharging the battery, check the fuse, if it still clicks, then try swapping out the module.

Low voltage can cause this, on this make and model you will need what they call a "code saver" before removing the battery, but you can recharge it with a battery charger if the battery is good as long as the key is off.
