I have a 2006 ford focus at my garage. The problem is that the gear shifter doesn't change to manual. Whenever I move the shifter it stays at drive and the car stays at automatic transmission doesnt change to manual. Anyth like this happened with someone? Just want to check if the problem is electrical or mechanical thank you

Are you trying to keep it in first, second.

This sounds like a shift linkage problem.

Hook up the scan tool to it and see what the computer is showing in the range while putting in manual.

I still think it has to do with the shift linkage. This would cause both of your problems, display and transmission range. There are also frequent problems with this on the 2006 year model. It either probably needs to be replaced or adjusted.

It may just be the shift linkage, you wouldn't have to replace the whole shifting assembly for just this problem.
