I have a 2002 Escort ZX2. Recently it hasn't been able to shift out of park. I've read posts about replacing the stop light switch. But there are 2 switches on the bracket. On the left is a blue switch that is a plastic housing. The one on the right is smaller and has a metal housing. The problem was intermittent for a while so I was able to try both switches to see which one controlled the release for the shifter. The smaller one on the right seemed to be the one that worked. The car has cruise control. Whenever I look up the part to purchase it, they always ask if I have cruise control and then tell me the large blue switch on the left is the one I need. But I'm not sure and that switch is much more expensive. I've tried buying the other switch from 2 different stores but neither one fits the wire harness. When I look up the part on Ford's website, they only show the blue switch. Can anyone clear this up for me?
