Who is "you"? This is a general question forum, are you trying to direct this question to a seller/dealer? Simple questions first, Is your foot on the brake when you want to shift it out of park? If so, then the shift interlock might be faulty. The switch location and getting it out of park procedure should be spelled out in the owner's manual, I'm not sure where the override switch is on your particular vehicle at the moment. Contact your local Ford dealer to see if there is a recall or TSB.
