    Couldn't get my 96 Camry (109,000mi) out of park this morning. After reading this post I tested the brake lights, and sure enough they are only coming on intermittently when I put the brakes on. I then checked the fuses, but they were all good. At that point I decided to take it in to my trusted mechanic (I am not that car-savvy). I thought I would have to have it towed, but my mechanic explained to me over the phone how to do the shift lock override to be able to bring it in. I'm waiting to find out the diagnosis.

Try this: Start the car. Have someone look at the brake lights. Press the brake pedal. Do the brake lights come on? There is a switch on the brake pedal that allows the shifter to come out of park. No brake lights? Check the brake fuse. Fuse OK? Check under the hood for a blown 30 amp (or bigger) fuse. I'd bet that you have a blown large fuse. Did anyone try to "jump" the battery just before this happened? If so, you may def have a blown large fuse. Hope this helps.

Sun roof wont close


theres a way to close it by taking off the panel above that covers the motor and putting a allen wrench into the middle of the motor unit and turning it i think clockwise. If the gears are stripped it wont work...but if its just the motor then manually turning the gear should close it. I figured out which way it needed to be turned to close then put a allen attachment on my cordless drill and made it easier cause it will take awhile

Looks like the s/roof needs to be put back in its channel so it can easily slide. Try if possible.

you need to check and see if there is any debris blocking the drain tubes for the sun roof. If not then you need to follow the tubes and look for kinks or other reasons why its not able to drain off quickly.

Can't open a 2002 Mercedes c230 kompressor sun roof


It's typically the motors or the special drive tubes that it uses. If you here a clicking noise then the sunroof became to tight and ruined the motor gears. You can actually switch the two motors, one is for the shades and needs less power then the other motor. They are identical, switch them. Nex make sure they are very tight to the 3 mounting bolts, there is a rubber washer bushing that wears out and alloys the motor to flex too much, causing the gear mis-alignment and gear grinding. This works great I do it all the time.
