The park is locked out until the brake is pushed, make sure the brake lights work, if not test the brake light switch with a test light, if all that is ok then the solenoid that disengages the park lock out is defective.

Started not shifting out of park only occasionally at first.then continually got worse. Now i can't get it out of park at all. once out of park shifts normally to other gear


You did not put vehicle y m m but normally all newer cars have a shift interlock solenoid that wont let you shift out of park unless you apply the brakes sounds like interlock solenoid failed. Its down low under the shifter and difficult to get to.

2008 Saturn Vue Stuck In Park. The car starts fine however when you try to shift out of park the shifter is locked up and won't budge. You have to restart the car multiple times to get the shifter...


these have a safety system so the shifter won`t go into any gear unless the brake is pushed(indicating someone sitting in the drivers seat),if the brake lights aren`t working this indicates that the fuse that operates the shift lock solenoid and brake lights is not working and needs replacing.check the fuses and replace the fuse and things will probably return to normal.

Started the car, tried taking it out of park but it wont budge.. what could be the problem?


Did your vehicle ever have the requirement to activate the brake before you could put it in gear? Ford played with this idea about this time and it might be that system malfunctioning. It could also be something in teh transmission. There is a locking pin that engages when you shut the vehicle off in park. On occasion, usually when parked on an incline, pressure will make that stick and it becomes very difficult and in some cases impossible to dissenge until you relieve that pressure. To eliminate this possibility as the problem have someone "rock" the vehicle slightly while you try and put it in gear and see if it will shift. The other possibility is the locking release on the shifter not functioning correctly. to get into that assembly and adjust it I recommend the Haynes or Chilton's repair manual for your vehicle which will help you make this repair.

The gear shift on my 1998 Lincoln Navigator is difficult to move out of park. It started about a month ago, when I tried to back out of my parking spot at home. Tonight, the vehicle died on me at a stop...


It can be either the shift cable or the Automatic parking brake release.
With your vehicle stalling it sounds like the parking brake release is leaking vacuum and causing stalling.

You can check with Autozone or Oreillys to see if there is an aftermarket part for that. Then locate the Auot release on your vehicle and when you take it off, slide the parts within the fixture to verify sticking.
