When I turn the ignition switch on I often cannot get the stick shift to come out of Park. If I shift it out quickly it will often work but if I leave it to idle in Park for more than a few seconds it jams...


The ability to release the shifter from the Park position depends on the brake switch. You have to put your foot on the brake to take it out of park. You may have an problem with your brake lights as well. Have a friend look at your brake lights the whole time you have the pedal depressed and make sure they stay on. If they go off then the signal to release from park is stopping also.

Shifter stuck in park


Are the brake lights working, the safety lock on the gearshift is operated by the brake lights, if they don't work you can't get it out of park. Sequence is turn on ignition, put foot on foot brake (brake lights come on, park lock disengages). Check the brake light fuse.

Can't shift out of park


The shift interlock has failed, the most common issue is from a poor connection at the brake pedal position sensor. I t became so common the factory issued a Technical Service Bulletin on it. It can also be the solenoid or cable.

ISSUE
The Brake Shift Interlock may be inoperative on some vehicles, not allowing the operator to move the shift lever from the Park position. Stop Lamp operation may also be affected. This may be caused by a deformed Brake Pedal Position Switch electrical connector.
ACTION
Restore Brake Pedal Position Switch operation by installing an updated electrical connector and pigtail.
Refer to the following Service procedure for details.
Try your brake lights if they don't work replace brake switch under pedal also try turning key to run but don't start shift into netural if you can and start. But you won't have brake lights If this helps please rate it thanks

Transmission is locked in park?


check your stop light fuse it could be blown out! you have to have foot on brake to remove from park. if no voltage to shifter, it will think no foot is on the brake. Check that the brake lights work, system requires brake light switch input to come out of park. if its not that. check the brake switch on top of brake pedal arm. good-day !

I cannot put the gear on park


Hi,

Without knowing which vehicle you have, you should first try placing your foot of the brake pedal then shifting into PARK. If this still doesn't work, keep your foot on the brake pedal and have an assistant check to see if your brake lights are working - if no brake lights either, then your brake pedal switch is faulty.

If your brake lights are working ok, then there may be a problem with either the gear linkage to the transmission, or possibly the transmission range switch.

Car in park, will not move. The icon with foot in circle on dash, what does this mean


Hi, it sounds like the brake switch is not working. You must have your foot on the brake to move the shifter out of park. If the switch above the pedal fails, the computer will think you do not have your foot on the brake. This is the same switch that turns on your brake lights. Are the brake lights working? If not, replace the brake light switch. Please let me know if you have more questions, and thanks for using FixYa.
