Question about 1995 Cadillac Seville

1 Answer

My 1995 STS is stuck in park

I have not used it in a long time and realized the battery went dead. Charged it up and it started immediatly, but I can't shift it.
A friend has a Jaguar that has that problem but there is a manual way to get it out of park so it can be driven.
Does anybody know how to get it in gear to get it to a dealer.

Thanks

might be time for new battery, they only last so long, usually 5 yrs is listed and that's if it's a good one to start with..more pricey. We just had the same thing happen to us. Turned out the alternator was junk, which wouldn't hold the charge from the battery and the battery was a 6yr battery, but we got 8 yrs out of it. Ended up replacing both alternator and battery in Advanced Auto's parking lot, during snow storm in NH!! They let us use their tools to replace both right there. They have tools and they checked both, no cost.

Sounds like a loose connection on the battery. Clean and tighten them, and check the battery ground. Is the starter cable on tight? If still nothing, a shop needs to check the ignition switch for a defect.

Running so few miles has accelerated the aging of the battery - the battery never had a chance to fully recharge in such small trips -  so now you have to replace it a year sooner than usual.
Just replace it.

Jump starting the battery may be all you need. If this vehicle was not in park when the battery went dead and when you got in to start it it was dead. You then probably put it into park trying to start it.
But the issue at this time is if it was in neutral when the battery went dead the you changing the selector to park may not actually have placed the transmission in park. With electronic gear selection it actually need power to the system to place the transmission in park.
Without it really being in park the key may move to the lock position.
A bit of quess work here but I hope for you I hit the mark.
