I have a 2006 pacifica. I have no brake lights (left right). When I press the brake pedal, I hear a click sound coming from under the shifter area. Weird?


No not weird that clicking sound is your shift lock it's supposed to make that sound first check
Brake light fuse if that is good check brake light switch witch is mounted under the dash above the brake pedal somtimes they can unadjust them selves and the switch doesn't hit the pedal or it is just bad and if that's not the problem it's the module that you will have to take to a repair shop

How do i fix my Chevy Cobalt. Floor shifter stays stuck in park postion. I am pressing brake pedal and pushing the shifter button.


have a helper. tell him to press brake pedal. you come to back of vehicle and see if the brake lights work when helper press the pedal. if lights don't work the tail light fuse has blown. so you cant take from park. and on some brands if horn fuse blown you cant take from park.

Cant get my 2002 car to shift out of park witout using the shift lock release


Do the brake lights work? If the brake pedal being applied is not sensed the system will not operate the electric solenoid that pulls back the lock pin at the shifter.

you should hear a click from the solenoid when you apply the brakes. If your brake lights don't work, your shift lock release won't either. There is a bypass method for emergencies in your owner manual. Check fuse for brake lights. And switch on brake pedal

My '97 grand prix wont shift from park. What is


Hi, you have a malfunctioning brake/park interlock. When you go to shift out of park, as you know, you have to hit the brake or the shifter won't jump out of Park into Reverse. The interlock device that in this system is probably failing.

there is a button right beside your shifter that will release the lock underneith the plastic arouns the shifter. remove the plastic rubber around the shifter and lift the plastic up. there will be a button you can press to release the shifter lock in cases of emergency. careful removing the plastic but may require some light prying action to get it off. hit the button with a srewdriver or key and move the shifter out of park. you will still need to be in park or neutral to start the car. the main problem is probably a park/neutral module, a bad shifter, or a brake pedal sensor

After i replaced front brake pads there is a clickig sound at shifter console when i apply brakes, but only when car is running and only when it is in park


If it makes 1 click for every time you push the brake pedal , You probably didnt notice it before you did the brakes but the noise is a shift lock solenoid , normal.

you should be able to pull key out in neutral. It sounds like a brake pedal issue not making contact with switch for shifter. Happens a lot actually. Until you can get serviced do it like a manual for now and as I stated you should be able to pull keys out. Its a button behind brake pedal. Try pusing it but leave car in park. Its usually a green and black switch. Leave car e brake on though. Safety reasons. Hope this helps

What would be the reason for the key not to come out of the ignition and the car not shift from park without pushing a button one the bottom of the shifter on a 97 grand prix


There may be a brake pedal switch sensor that determines when you have the brake applied. Normally if the pedal is down the pedal switch activates and removes a "lock" that would keep the shifter from moving.

Ordinarily when this happens you have to physically move the lock or replace or adjust the brake pedal switch to get the shifter to move freely.

If the car is not in "PARK" properly (the transmission can be in another gear even if the shifter "seems" to be in park - this would require an adjustment in the shift linkage) then the key won't turn to start.
Likewise until it is "properly" in park or neutral you may have difficulty locking the steering column and removing the key.
