06 Dodge Charger Gear Stuck in Park

Hi, I have an 06 CHarger that is also stuck in park. A friend of mine told me that there is a sensor behind the foot peddle that I might need to fiddle with in order to get it to work. He said he tried this with his car and the gear came out of lock mode. Is this possible? My car is at the dealership tonight pending the parts and labor to get replaced. They want to charge me like $400 to fix it! Please help!

Thank you for your quick reply. As it turns out, the trans shifter did indeed need to be replaced. This cost me about $400 but I had no other choice. Now that this has been replaced, do I have to worry about it happening again?

My 2006 dodge charger is stuck in park how do i repair it


When the car gets stuck in park it is due to the park lock system, the system will not release unless the brake lights are on so if you have no brake lights then the gear shifter will not move. Check the brake lights first.

Hi I have a 2006 Dodge Charger SE with 67,000 miles on it.. I got in my car to head to wrk and my gear shift will not move out of park. I tired it several times still will not move. I pulled up my skirt...


SOUND LIKE TRANSMISSION BRAKE INTERLOCK SOLENOID IS NOT ENERGIZING.MAKE SURE BRAKE LIGHTS COMING ON WHEN YOU APPLY BRAKE PEDAL.SEE IF BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH MALFUNCTION OR BRAKE LIGHT FUSE BLOWN. THE TRANSMISSION BRAKE INTERLOCK SOLENOID WONT ENERGIZE, WHICH WILL KEEP YOU FROM GETTING CAR OUT OF PARK.MAKE SURE YOU HAVE 12.6 VOLTS AT BATTERY.DEAD BATTERY YOU WONT BE ABLE TO GET CAR OUT OF PARK.CHECK TRANSMISSION BRAKE INTERLOCK SOLENOID FUSE AND CHECK TO MAKE SURE BRAKE LIGHT FUSE IS GOOD AND BRAKE LIGHT FUSE NOT BLOWED.

I have an 06 charger that is stuck in park,I have tried the red reset button to no avail.I was wondering if there are any other solutions.


There is probably an electric switch on the brake pedal , it won't let you shift out of park unless it senses that your foot is on the brake. If the switch/sensor is kaput it doesn't know that you are on the brake.

Check the brake switch sensor near the brake pedal (or on the lever) to make sure that it is engaging.

This is a c ommon problem to get stuck in park when this brake switch goes bad.

Charger Stuck in Park


The override switch is located in the center console where the gear selector is... unfortunately, on most cars, it requires the center console to be removed to get to it

I cannot get the gear to shift down


check the brake lights, the shifter has a safety feature that will not allow u to shift out of park if your foot is not on the brake and the brake lights are working, if the brake lights are working there is a bypass to get it out of park under a little cover next to the shift handle.
