Emergengy break won't hold on 2007 dodge charger r/t

You may have to get the wheels off and inspect the cable and then if the cables are working. Take off the brake rotors and inspect the parts and replace the worn or damage parts. Could be as simple as adjusting the tensioner for the rear brakes. Or may need a brake job.

Sounds like the gearshift interlock is not working. I assume you know you have to hold your foot on the brake with the ignition switched on. Check all the fuses. If they're ok you may need to take it to an auto electrician unless you can find the fault in the interlock system yourself. It may be that the switch may be faulty or out of adjustment. It is located down on the brake pedal.

2007 dodge charger is stuck in park

Your vehicle has a brake shift interlock which simply means that it will not move out of park unless the brake is pressed in. A common cause for this to cause your interlock to cause this problem is if your brake llights are out but there could be a number of reasons for this. It's most likely electrical and you may need to have it looked at but check your fuses before you take it somewhere. it may be that simple. Below are instructions on how to override this in order to be able to shift gears and be able to drive it as well. I hope this helps and good luck.

When I start my car I can not change gears out of park Chysler Sebring 2007 , today

These newer cars have a safety as part of the brake pedal system. Check along the brake pedal to see if the switch is misaligned or disconnected. This is to prevent someone from pressing the accelerator while taking the vehicle out park and causing an accident. Good luck

My 2007 dodge charger se/sxt sedan will not shift out of park

More than likely your brake lights are not working either. Not sure if they have separated the brake lights from the brake safety switch. But more than likely your brake switch on your brake pedal is not working properly. You have to press the brake to shift from park and the computer is not seeing that you are pressing the brake, and not unlocking the shifter.

Why wont my 2008 dodge avenger shift from park?

I assume you are pressing firmly on the brake pedal. If so, it is most likely the brake safety switch, not detecting that you are.
Contact your dealer about the override for this, (usually there is a button somewhere), if that fixes it, you need to get it replaced.
All new cars require that you press the brake to be able to shift out of park; this prevents the so-called "sudden acceleration" problem, when you put your foot on the accelerator instead of the brake, shift into drive, and then no matter how hard you press on the accelerator (which you *think* is the brake), the car will not stop, in fact it "races out of control".

But occasionally this switch goes bad and has to be replaced.
