turn the ignition key and nothing happens

Hi all....and thanks for having me on the forums. My apologies for such a long post...LOL !! I am having an issue where my 2009 ford escape sometimes does not even crank over. When I turn the key, I get nothing. Down on the lower left hand in the instrument cluster, I get the rapid flashing theft light and my odometer reads all dashes --------. If I move the console gear selector a bit back and forth , it will usually start right up and all is normal. This is an intermittent problem, cause sometimes it starts right up no problem and drives without issue.

I have changed out the complete ignition module in the steering column but that didn't work. Yesterday, I was driving it and "while I was driving" ....ALL of the instrument panel fault indicators came on, and my odometer went all dashes again -------- My speedometer didn't work or my RPM gauge while I was driving. Turn signals were fine and gas gauge was normal too. It was still driving fine all the way home.

When I got home, I put the gear selector in Park....and my odometer reading came back on to the regular numbers and all instrument fault lights went off.
Everything was normal when I put it in park. I turned the key off, and it started right back up... no issues. Has anyone experienced this before?

Thanks for any advice in advance !!
