Question about 1998 Land Rover Discovery
My 2006 Chevy Impala is stuck in park. The gear shift is located between then seats and the button that must be pressed in to move the gear shift cannot be pressed in. We have tried pressing the brake, applying and releasing the parking brake, etc. We also turning the car to accessory but the car would still not shift out of park. Any ideas?
When you turn ignition on it releases a cable that is attached to the shifter also the shifter has a solenoid attached to it that is released when you step on the brake. Both times that I had the problem of button stuck and cant shift out of park the solenoid was sticking and wouldnt release .

Disconnect the battery then go turn the ignition to on possition then try to shift into nuetral if it does need to replace brake switch or wiring connection . You can leave in nuetral turn ignition off might not go to lock but hook battery up should be able to shift until you put back in park until you get switch replaced.
