Silver ring around shifter thumb button, will not let shifter disengage all the way. I pulled the silver ring out and it has one tab broken off. Now I just make sure the button comes out when I put it in park and I can hear the ignition unlock. Haven't gotten it fixed really just dealing with it.

This is the problem I am having, thanks for the good info...
Key stuck in the ignition. Same problems with the silver ring. Very expensive fix for a common problem among 2006 Fusion owners! Ford, are you listening?

I'm still trying to get the key out. I will look at the shift stick to see if something is broken.

Had same problem, key would not come out of ignition. Took it to Ford Service center, they wanted $118 just to look at it. Three men looked at it and no one knew about this problem. My brother, a mechanic, checked on internet, looked at it and found out about the shifter problem. He rigged it so I could drive it and get key out, until part came in. Its fine now. Ford should have a recall on this and they should fix it for us. Very frustrating and scary not being able to get your key out of the ignition.
