Won't shift out of park

My blazer starts fine but sometimes when i go to shift it doesn't shift so i have to use the override button. Can someone tell me what it could be i have removed the center console and did a thorough check for frays and solenoid and such, and needless to say didn't find anything. Any suggestions would be awsome.

    Check engine light comes on and reduce power light. Truck idles high andthen like chokes out. Cannot get out of park. Happened after I installed a brake controller & new battery. Brake Controller was installed properly and still did not work. Uninstalled and now will not get out of Park.

    I have a 2004 Envoy. Last May, my button on the gear shift would not allow me to push it in to move gear out of park. Only happened on extremely hot days - plenty in TX. Dealer checked all brake lines and gear shift panel - could not reproduce problem, so no real solution. This last weekend, it happened again. Dealer checked all but still could not reproduce. Suggested replacing shift lock solenoid, but could not guarantee that it would fix problem. Only happens when hot outside. Have to wait till evening when cool again, then car shifts fine.

Check out your fuse box and look for a fuse for the torque converter some automatic transmissions have a fuse for the torque converter check it out and see if it's blown.

Shift lock


It could possibly be a bad electrical connection or poor connection with the transmission. Did the mechanic get any error codes?

Looking for Brake-shift interlock override


Unable to shift out of park on very hot days in my Mazda6 2003, was becoming a serious problem this summer.....there is no override button/key on this model. I had it to the Mazda dealership five times before the problem was corrected! Initially the wrong diagnosis was made and replacement of something connected to the brake did not correct the problem. Finally, the shifter was replace and the problem was solved. $$$ Seems like there have been many different electrical problems with this model....some under warranty, some not. I will not ever buy another Madza.......there is no excuse to design a car without an override button or key! ( It was scary to be stuck on sweltering hot days not being able to get out of park.....had I ever had my grand babies with me when this happened, I would have been desperate.)

Well, I have a 1994 Toyota Camry XLE V6. I bought it from someone almost two years ago, knowing that it did not have reverse. When we bought it we noticed that the transmission fluid was very low to none...


if the gears were "melted together" then the trans wouldn't shift at all. since the car runs fine sometimes and sometimes it doesn't it sounds like an electronic problem. the trans uses shift solenoids to acheive gear changes. is the fluid dark brown in color or smell burnt? if so you may have some slipping of the clutch discs/ bands, but it doesn't sound severe if the car runs fine at times. i suggest you have a trans shop to drive the car and get a more accurate diagnosis.

Dome light won't work exept by the override switch-sometimes


I seem to be having the exact opposite problem. I have a 99 chevy blazer and the dome light will not turn off unless I push the override button in. The radio does turn off as soon as I turn off the ignition key. If I leave the dome override button out, the dome light will constantly stay on even while I am driving. It used to work fine. Every now and them it starts working properly, but it hasn't worked right for a long time now. I tested all the switches and they all seem ok. They rear hatch is also closed. Does anyone know what the problem can be and how to fix it?

Not shifting into 2nd gear


Check all of your vacuume hoses to your transmission and you also may have to have your computer in your car reprogrammed.

I can not get the Auto shift lever out of park


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.

Shift lock override button


Check your brake lights, if they are not working then the shift will not unlock.
