Hi guys,

 

Sorry if this issue has already been covered. However, I didn't find anything using the search function. I have a 2014 Ford Fusion Hybrid here with no remotes (keys). I can get the vehicle in to neutral and the vehicle has power but I can't get the electronic emergency break to disengage. Is there any way to manually realease this break so I can move the vehicle? I haven't been able to find anything on it anywhere. Thank so much for any info you can provide.

There is no manual release.  It's applied by a motor.

 

Normal release.

Put your foot on the brake pedal and push down on the parking brake switch.

 

Automatic release.

Just drive away and it should release automatically.

On your console there is a release button. On my SE it's there and you simply pull up to release.

Thanks sir,

 

So basically if I don't have the keys for this vehicle there is no way at all for me to move it if the parking break is applied? Seems hard to believe you know? Long story but I have 7 of these with no keys that need to be moved all with the parking breaks engaged.

What exactly does this look like? I've seen in other vehicles if you lift up the center console you can find a loop wire of some sort to pull up that would release the break...

If you can put the car in neutral and the battery is charged, try this.

Close the driver's door and fasten the driver's safety belt, now get someone to push the car forward.

This is called the 'drive away release mode', it might work.

 

The parking brake release is on the left side of the center console, it looks like this, push down to deactivate.

On mine it is on the left hand side with the P symbol on it. Have not used it, but going to the manual it's on page 170 and you life up to engage and push down to release. GrySql went one better and posted the picture for you.

The details of this "long story" might be important; maybe VERY important.

 

If you are 100% on the up and up, contact Ford for help.

Thanks but I did that already. Not sure how the details are relevant to what I am asking though. I have a vehicle with no keys with the electric emergency break in the on position and I need to release it. I can get the vehicle in to neutral, and the battery is charged... I do not think I am missing any information. If so, what else would you need to know?

 

Thanks

I just tried this but didn't have any luck with it. Thanks for trying, I appreciate your efforts. If you have any other ideas please let me know.

How do you get it into Neutral without the keys? Is it Push Button Start or does the car use a key? Some of those details are important because they affect how the vehicle behaves.

You had the car in neutral when you had it pushed?  Try putting it in Drive, seatbelt on, doors closed.

How did you get 7 Fusions, all without keys?

Can you actually shift the car without keys? 

 

I know where there are 7 Fusions, and I don't have keys for those.  But I don't think the owners of the cars want me to move them.

 

Where they all towed to your place?

One of the mechanics was able to remove something in the center console that allowed the gears to be shifted. I'm no mechanic not quite sure what he did there. It's a push button start.

I tried that as well and still got nothing. I don't know why they arrived with no keys. I work at an auto ramp.

Not towed sir. I work at an auto ramp and we had several arrive on rail with missing keys. No one seems to have any information on this anywhere. This is just a final attempt to gather some info on this. Yes you can shift the car.

It is a puzzle, same thing happens if the battery is dead, the car won't move.  You'd think there would be a workaround.

Call the Ford Roadside Assistance hotline @ 1-800-241-3673.

I agree with GrySql. What did Ford Roadside Assistance say?

Ford Roadside Assistance would not apply to a car in transit from the factory.  He works at the place where they unload cars from the train.

 

It's easy to get the car out of Park.  Pull off the right side lower console panel, it's held by spring clips.  Stick a long screwdriver in the slot and move the colored pawl to release the shifter.

I suspect the parking brake release switch just sends a signal to the computer to tell it to release the brake.

Wonder how they got them loaded without the keys. From what I understand the brake is activated Key On and can only be deactivated Key On.  The only way you can move them is with dollies under the rear axle.
