SOURCE: GEO TRACKER AUTO shifter does not release from park

I found this online. Check to see if you have back brake lights. If not the fuse for them also triggers the gear release.

SOURCE: shifter is stuck in park

The shift cable is off the lever on the trans...the dash indicator states drive but the shifter is in park. Look under the drivers side of the trans, next to the catalytic converter(make sure the truck is cooled off) the trans cable will not be attached to the tranny lever-re-attach and you will be able to get it home or to a shop for a repair. This happened to me already, simple fix.

SOURCE: Shift lock release worked...do I still need to take car in?

I think the shift inter-lock solenoid was stuck at the time. it can also be your brake switch did not make contact. next time check your brake lights to see if they work while it hapen. so just wait!

2005 Hyundai accent gear shift stuck in park after brake failure


Make sure the brake lights are coming on if not the release solenoid that unlocks park gets no power and will not release the shifter from park position. Also check the owner's manual for a possible way to override the solenoid lock.

When i start my 2005 Ford Ranger 4.0L 4wd It will not go from Park to Drive with the key in & on and your foot on the brake. what ever makes it release to move the shifter is not working... any Idea on...


Only 2 things could be wrong. The brake light switch mounted by the brake pedal arm or the shifter solenoid. Column shifter solenoids you can buy. But console shifters, you have to buy the entire shifter to get the solenoid.

How to fix shifter stuck in park 2005 ford escape


In general this type saftey feature is released by pressing the brake pedal. If that doesn't work check and see if your brake lights work OK. Often its the same electrical circut that powers the shift lever lock release that lights the brake lights. Many vehicles will have a manual over ride. It is usually a slot or little removable plug or plastic panel you remove that let's you release the locking mechonizum at the shift lever. This should not be used as a way to drive a vehicle with non functional brake lights on the road instead of getting them repaired.

Car stuck in park


I have run into this problem on a lot of Chrysler cars. The first thing is to try the shifter release this is located on the console, look in your manual and it will show you how to do this , if this still does not work then you will need a new shifter. there is a small plastic part inside the shifter that breaks. there is no replacement part. the shifter need to be replaced. i would check your dealer for any warranty info on this.

My 2005 Altima is stuck in park. Automatic transmission, low miles starts right up and steering wheel is not locked. Help please!!!


http://www.nissanclub.com/forums/2005-2006-nissan-altima-se-r-discussion/225903-shift-lock.html

your owner's manual will tell you how to over-ride the shift lock. ususally there is a hole covered by a plastic piece, next to the shifter. pop out the cover and push the button to shift. The shifter will lock back up in park until you fix the problem. You may want to set the parking brake and use neutral when you park the car instead of " Park". That way you will not have to push the release button-it will eventually break.

make sure your brake lights work; as the shift lock is powered by the brake light fuse-replace as needed.

Shifter is stuck in park


Billettechnologies.com sells a replacement cog to put your shifter backinto action. Their part replaces a factory plastic piece...no wonderthese are failing at a fast rate.

Cannot turn key in ignition in 2008 cobalt. Attempted to find a release mechanism under steering column as I did with 2005 cobalt but the 2 or 3 things I could move did not release the ignition.


try moving the shifter back and forth from park to 1 then back to park, there is an issue with the shifter not releasing the park lock mechanism that goes into the ignition cylinder.

I have a 2005 impala it will not come out of netural or drive into park i think its the button on the side of the shifter please let me know how to fix this thank you


It could be a couple of things. The first thing i would check is to make sure the brake lights work. The shift interlock requires a signal from the brake light switch to allow the shifter to move. If the switch dosn't work the shifter will be stuck in park.

There should be an shift interlock override somewhere near the shifter for situations such as this. Look in your owners manual for a more detailed location and instructions on using the override.
