Do you have brake lights? The brake switch on the pedal has to work to send a signal to a solenoid at the shifter to release park.

My 2008 Chevy Impala's gear shifter button is not releasing when put into park so the key will not come out of the ignition and causes the battery to die. Car engine will shut off but power stays on.


Take a little WD-40 and spray beside the button with the straw. Work it back and forth the best you can to include a few smacks on the shifter itself. This will allow the lubricant to travel down the shaft of the shifter also. This should take care of it. Let me know.

A friend of mine has a 2008 chevy impala and it is stuck in park


This happened to mine. I took the cover off where the shifter is; there is a very small wire that came out on mine, the funny thing is it would only happen once in a while, then one day it wouldn't come out of park at all, that's when I found the wire.

My wifes car is stuck in park. It is a 2008 chevy impala


These cars have a shifter lock that is integrated with your brake pedal. The solenoid should release when your pedal is depressed.Check to make sure your fuses are good first.

I have a 2005 impala it will not come out of netural or drive into park i think its the button on the side of the shifter please let me know how to fix this thank you


It could be a couple of things. The first thing i would check is to make sure the brake lights work. The shift interlock requires a signal from the brake light switch to allow the shifter to move. If the switch dosn't work the shifter will be stuck in park.

There should be an shift interlock override somewhere near the shifter for situations such as this. Look in your owners manual for a more detailed location and instructions on using the override.

2008 Chevy Impala transmission shift lever locked up...


I had this problem and its common on the impala. There is a manual release button under the shifter trim. Remove the trim and look down and on the passenger side you will see a silver button near the bottom. With the shifter in park push in the button and this will release the shifter. You can drive the car as long as you don't put it back in park. If you do just push in the button and release it again. My problem was a broken wire in the shifter cable. You won't find this release button in the owners manual. After mine was repaired I drilled a inch and one half hole in the passenger side of the console opposite the level of the button in case I had future problems. Just reach in with your finger and push in the button to release the shifter.

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 .
