Engine will not turn over or start when in park.

Safety neutral switch sounds faulty. Most likely at transmission

    There is usually one type that screws into transmission, looks like a regular sensor, and one that is mounted in by the shift linkage at transmission. Either way I would check to make sure linkages are not just out of adjustment enough to cause the problem. If part needs to be replaced, Autozone & other autoparts suppliers should have it, if not a dealer shouldn't be too much more, but call around first.

    My search is turning up a screw into transmission type switch. Have a look above drain pan area on housing for a wire plug attached, and it should be threaded into the tranny.

My 94buick park avenue can't shift out off parking level is locked


Are you talking about the trans shifter or the parking brake ?
If the shifter won't come out of park it could be the brake light switch or the shifter lock solenoid.
You may be able to shift out of park by turning the key to the unlock position but not to the on position, then crank the engine in neutral.

I can't move shifter


Assuming the key lock is turning correctly, it could be the brake pedal switch or the lock solenoid that locks the shifter into park.
You could try unlocking the key switch but not turning the switch on, then try moving the shifter. Sometimes the lock solenoid is not "locked" until you turn the key switch on.

Ignition key gets stuck and car won't start


you might need to replace ignition key cylinder assy and replace current key, now, sometimes if this is a automatic transmission it might have problem with shifter interlock cable try moving shifter from park to first and back to park and try removing key again, but if key gets stuck and car won't start, does the key turns? does the engine cranks? are you using the correct key?

Stuck in 'park'. When I got home and put the car


See a honda dealer or remove console to get to shifter solenoid. Also adjust cable to get key out of ign. We always would pull shifter back and push it foward firmly into park to get them to release key.

Key stuck in accessory position


sounds like shifter or brake sensor is not working. Try holding brake peddle down while turning key. Also try turning steering wheel a little.
