2017 Fusion Energi here.  Since I purchased it in 2016, I've been able to start the car and shift the transmission turn knob to D, sometimes in what seems like quick enough succession that the computer says "no" and after a second shifts back to Park, from which I then need to shift it back to D, and all is well.  Have others experienced this?

Yes-  Almost as if I'm "too quick" for the computer to finish doing all their checks before verifying (or ignoring) the gear change.


I've started turning the park brake off first before turning the dial to "R" or "D".  Usually that extra second is enough for the ECU to "get ready" to go.  It's an annoyance.

If I "rush" things, this tends to happen. I've had to teach myself to "take things slow" - start the car, take a breath, shift to D at a calm pace, disengage the parking brake, and then it's fine. If I try to turn the shifter the way I would spin a combination lock, the car really doesn't like it.
