Is the car paked on a level ground? if not and the car is slightly sloping backwards. you need to get someone to give it a little push while you attempt to move the gear to D position.

Can't shift car out of park


There is a shift lock release lever located just to the left of the gear shift. Pop off the plastic cover, and then use a flathead screwdriver or similar instrument to push down and release the lever. While you are holding that down, you will be able to override the lock and shift out of park. Then release the lever.

  • GEAR SELECTOR LEVER - INCREASED EFFORT TO SHIFT FROM DRIVE TO PARK
Publication Date: November 1, 2004
FORD: 2002-2005 Explorer, Mountaineer ISSUE: Some 2002-2005 Explorer 4dr/Mountaineer vehicles, may require a greater effort to move the gear selector lever (shift lever) from drive to park. This may be due to a time delay with the brake shift interlock (BSI) pin retraction.
ACTION: To service, replace the BSI switch. Refer to the following Service Procedure.
SERVICE PROCEDURE
  1. Remove the two (2) fasteners supporting the instrument panel knee bolster from below the steering column and remove the cover (Figure 1).

    tb7934b.gif
    Figure 1 - Article 04-22-12

  2. Remove the three (3) fasteners supporting the steering column lower shroud and remove the cover (Figure 2).

    tb7935b.gif
    Figure 2 - Article 04-22-12

  3. Remove the three (3) wiring bundle carrier fasteners from the bottom of the steering column to allow movement while removing the BSI switch. It may be necessary to release the connectors from the multifunction switch (Figure 3).

    tb7936b.gif
    Figure 3 - Article 04-22-12

  4. Remove the BSI fasteners (T-30 on the side and T-20 on the bottom) (Figure 4).

    tb7938a.gif
    Figure 4 - Article 04-22-12

  5. Pull the BSI tab on the bottom of the column downward to help free the BSI from the column housing.
  6. Break the two (2) side tabs off the BSI by the white wiring connector (Figure 5).

    tb7940a.gif
    Figure 5 - Article 04-22-12

  7. Push the locking tab on the white connector towards the wiring to release the connector from the BSI. Be careful not to damage the connector or wiring. If the connector does not free easily, a very small flat screwdriver may be used to help lift the locking tab (Figure 6).

    tb7941a.gif
    Figure 6 - Article 04-22-12

  8. Connect the wiring to the new BSI. Ensure all clips are fully engaged to prevent the connector from pulling free.
  9. Reinstall the BSI onto the steering column and reinstall fasteners (Figure 7).

    tb7942a.gif
    Figure 7 - Article 04-22-12

  10. Check BSI function. With the key in the accessories or run position, press the brake pedal. The BSI pin should retract on brake application, and spring up one (1) second after releasing the brake pedal. Repeat several times.
  11. Reinstall fasteners to connect wiring bundle carrier to the steering column. Make sure all connections to the multifunction switch unit are secured properly.
  12. Reassemble steering column in reverse order. Ensure rubber gap hider around shift lever is properly seated on the shroud.
  13. Cycle the shift lever from park to drive and drive back to park several times to verify improved shift effort.

2005 pontiac aztek, won't shift out of park. Button can be pushed in but won't move gear shift, acts like it is stuck. What could be happening? $$$$ tight


Modern cars have shift interlock solenoids that prevent you from taking it out of park without pressing the brake. If your brake lights work, then the switch is good and the solenoid needs to be replaced. Look in your owners manual as it will give you instructions for taking it out of park until you get this fixed. It usually involves sticking a screwdriver in from the side to push the release lever out of the way and then you take it out of park.

When car is in park and you press the break the gear shifter will not move.


There is a shift lock release lever you can use to override the lock. It is located to the left of the gear shift, and it's covered by a small plastic cover that you can pop off. Use a flathead screwdriver (or something similar) to push the lever in, and then you can shift out of park.

My gear shift i stuck in park


You can get it out of park as a temporary fix by popping off the little cover to the left of the gearshift, then pushing down on the lever beneath the cover with a flathead screwdriver (or skinny key) and then shifting out of park.

1999 Honda Accord EX won't shift out of park. It is stuck. I think it's the shift lock solenoid but I'm not sure. How do I get the car out of park. I pushed the brake in but the button on the gear shifter...


If you press the Break pedal and the shift button does not engage, Your Solenoid did not activate to release it out of park. either the: solenoid is out - Bent levers - Solenoid harness disconnected - Break activation wire may be damaged. this piece is easy to replace as it sits on the right side (passanger side) of the shift lever. remove center console cover to access the soleniod which is held on by two 10mm nuts. and a C- clamp
