Question about 2000 Chevrolet Blazer

I can not get the Auto shift lever out of park

I have a 2002 Chev Blazer and it is very difficult to get the shift lever out of park. IF it does come out, then when I try to put it back, the ignition key will not come out. Also IF it comes out, it goes into Reverse and Neutral fine, but to get to Drive I have to push the button on the shift lever in. Going back from Drive to Neutral requires the button pushing in, but then it goes straight to reverse without needing the button. Help!

I initially tried to override the Brake / Transmission switch by disconnecting the battery but that did not work. I solved the problem by disconnecting the wiring from the actual gearbox, and manually moving the linkage at the gearbox. After doing that everything was re-connected and now works fine.

Is not in park but the emergency brake is on cannot get into park


Sounds as if the shift cable is binding. Check the shift release silenoid under the steering column, this selinoid runs hand in hand with the shift lever on the floor, it will prevent the key from turning completely off and interfere with the shifter lock selinoid.
If the keys turns off all the way, I suggest investigating the casing around the shifter for items that may have slid into it (Coins will bind up the shifter) the housing will come off allowing you a visual.

My 2002 chevy blazer is stuck in park


first check to see if the brake lights are working. If they are you will need to pull the center counsel and repair the broken wires fro the shift interlock.

If the brake lights are not working. check the fuse and the switch. The switch will be under the drivers side of the dash mounted on a bracket near the brake pedal lever. The fuse will be in one of the fuse blocks and labeled BRAKE or STOP.

Faulty shift/ignition control?


Todd, Over time, shift linkages and cables tend to stretch or develop some "slack" in the system which can cause this type of problem. I would suggest readjusting the linkage and see if that takes care of the problem.
1) On level ground, block the wheels to prevent rolling.
2) Place the shift lever in neutral.
3) Loosen fastener at transmission select lever and allow linkage to relax or find center.
4) Turn key to start position to verify transmission is in neutral, engine should roll over, no need to start engine. Shut engine off if started.
5)Center linkage at transmission select lever and tighten fastener.
6) Recheck Park position, readjust if necessary.
Good luck, let me know how it goes.
Regards,
