Question about 2007 Chevrolet Monte Carlo

3 Answers

Gear shifter i have a 2007 monte carlo and sometimes when i go to put the car in park to turn the car off the gear shifter sticks and will not lock into park not allowing me to get the key to the off position. It is really frustrating. It only seems to do it when its COLD outside. The gear shifter button sticks and the button will not release to put it in park. Is this a easy fix or should I sent it to the shop?

The shifter cable and linkage may be getting sticky. Locate the linkage and cable on the gear selector (transmission side under hood) and spray them with some PB Blaster or WD 40.

I'm having the same problem. the spring in the shifter is not releasing properly. you'll have to replace the whole shifter. to get your keys out in the mean time take off the shifter top and pull up on the plastic piece . it will then lock and you can then take your keys out.

I would reccomend to remove the shifter, and inspect for someone spilling a sticky soft drink, ive seen that alot, and it "Gums up" the Solenoid. i would try cleaning it with electrical contact cleaner availible at any autoparts store. if that doesent take care of it, a trip to your friendly chevrolet dealer for a new shifter will remedy your problem. it stinks, but the only the shift interlock solenoid is serviced, is in the shifter assembly

Where can i find a shift lock solenoid for my 2002 monte carlo ss? i have searched for days on internet and cant find anything.


just because you disconnected the shift cable from the trans doesnt mean the car is now out of gear. The interlock switch is located next to the shifter in the center console. Remove the bezel around the shifter and you should see a small tab that reads (shift interlock) pull it out of its holder and the shifter should once again move

Toyota Tercel stuck in gear


Its a gear shift issue.


The shifter needs to be inspected. The shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has to be open and realign.


There are many other possibilities. But if it was working right up till now and suddenly this occurred then its shifter assembly alignment issue.


Also i suggest you to refer these gear shift issues, which are mostly noticed. These are direct links with appropriate solutions to the specific problems of gear ****.

I can not get my monte carlo out of park. I push on the break, and I have done everything that the driver manual tells me to. My model is a 97. I am aware of a switch behind the break pedal, but I do not...


it is the shift lever solenoid, if you can acess the inside of the console where the gear shifter is on the bottom left side of the shifter you will see an electrical connecter that has 2 wires hooked to it this is the solenoid, you can replace this and it will fix your problem, or you can just unplug it and the shifter will work, if you choose to leave it unplugged beware that the transmisson will now be able to be shifted into gear without your foot having to be applied to the brake, but hey, who puts their car in gear without their foot on the brake, all this system is is a saftey device to keep you from shifting into gear without your foot on the brake

My shifter is stuck in park


If the steering wheel is turned the continue to turn the steering wheel in the same direction as the tires are going while applying firm pressure to the brake the try to pull it out of park. I know this sounds crazy but they have so many safety swithches on them, you may have one not activating.

There is a safety switch on that car for the gear selector so that
when you press the brake it releases the shifter. Should be by the brake pedal or by the shifter
