Question about 1995 Chevrolet Caprice Classic

1 Answer

Won't shift from park

My 1995 Caprice Classic won't shift out of park when the car is started, the only way to get it to shift is to turn the key to the very first ignition click (lights not on) and then shift to neutral and then start, then it can be shifted into reverse or drive. But once it's shifted back into park you have to turn it off and start all over again.

You either have a bad brake pedal sensor or a bad shift interlock solenoid. Luckily both parts are cheap to replace if you do it yourself. Google search those items to find the particular locations for your year and replace the bad part. If your brake lights work when you step on the brakes then replace the interlock solenoid. If your brake lights don't light up then replace your brake switch. Either one of these problems would and could prevent your car from shifting out of park.

SOURCE: 2008 impala won't start or shift out of park, key is difficult to remove from ignition.

Sound like a problem with the Neutral Ssafety Switch, this is located on top transmission (generally) and its possible that need some adjust.
