What you have is a safety switch, wich is why when the car is running you need to step on the brake to release the shifter from park. the switch is electric, and therefore isn't working because your battery is dead. Now, for the good news. Next to your shifter there should be a little plug, or a slot about the size of your door lock key hole. Insert your key into the slot, press down lightly, and then you can take the car out of park. That is called your "shift lock release"
Good luck!

Need to jump my 2014 Honda Civic - it's in the garage and I can't get it into neutral to move out for a jump. Help?


Near the shifter there is a cap, remove it with a small screwdriver and insert your key or the screwdriver. While pushing it in, you will be able to shift into neutral.

I have a Dodge Avenger 2008 with a dead battery and the vehicle is in a one car garage. I can't shift the car to neutral to push it out of the garage and jump start it. How do I get the vehicle into...


If the battery is dead,it is a dangerous practice
to jump start it,not recommended I should say

If you can charge it, or take it out and replace it, that
is your best bet.

Someone on your street will have a charger
you can use
