SOURCE: 1996 Nissan Sentra Automatic shift lock problem

jlcoffell1: From your description, it sounds as though there has been a power source supplied which is not suppose to be present all the time. If someone over rode the interlock, they may have supplied power to the shift solenoid so that it would be the same as though you were applying the brake. It could be as simple as, who ever bypassed the system, picked the power source from the ignition circuit from that control unit. The ignition circuit is a green wire. It goes hot when the ignition switch is turned on. You would look for it to be jumped some how to either the same side of the control unit as the green wire going in, but it would be tied in with a red/green wire. If they carried it to the other side of the control unit, it would tie into the Blue/orange wire.
This is where I would look first.>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
Good hunting.
Let me know if you need more help.

SOURCE: My 2001 Mazda tribute column

The same thing happened to my 2001 Mazda Tribute. It was stuck in Neutral. The shifter cable fell off the little metal post under the steering column. To fix it I removed the plastic column covers. Put the round end of the cable back on the little silver colored post. Then secured it on the post with a ring type push nut from Ace Hardware. Total cost of repair was sixty cents. The cables are not always broken. They just fall of the little post.

SOURCE: charger won't shift out of park ...park lock

http://www.custombilletstore.com/product_p/1028.htm I know this is late but I had the same problem. The release wouldn't work either. I had to remove the shifter and take the cover off. A spring broke off the pink lever in the front of the shifter. The shifter would move side to side but couldn't be pulled back. The above link sells a replacement part that might work. Thanks to petevpi.

I have an 02 mazda tribute and my breaks and blinkers stopped working all of a sudden. I can't even get it out of park since I can't uses my breaks to shift. No break lights either??!


The brake light switch at the brake pedal controls the brake lights and the gearshift release solenoid. It should have no effect on the signal lights. You may have 2 problems. You can try tapping the brake light switch and moving the contact plunger by hand to see if the brake lights/shift release will work. If it starts operating again, I would replace it immediaetly before it fails completely

Gear shift repair


Are your brake lights working?
  • No? It's either the fuse for your brake light circuit, or the brake light switch at the pedal.
  • Yes? In that case, the interlock solenoid is stuck in position, has burned out, or has become disconnected.

My 2005 Pacifica will not disengage from park and the check engine, brake and anti-skid warning lights are all on


SHIFTER LOCKED IN PLACE

  1. Remove the instrument panel cover below the steering column, then remove the steering column shrouds to gain access to the brake transmission shift interlock (BTSI) solenoid. The solenoid is part of the interlock cable assembly.
  2. Disconnect the wire connector from the rear of the BTSI solenoid.
  3. Insert the ignition key and turn it to the ON position.
  4. With the brakes applied, try moving the shifter out of the PARK position.
    • If the lever now moves freely in and out of PARK, perform the Circuit Test below.
    • If the shift lever still does not move from the PARK position, remove the BTSI solenoid from the shift lever assembly. If the shift lever now moves freely in and out of the park position, the BTSI solenoid is faulty and the interlock cable must be replaced. If the shift lever still does not move from the park position, the problem is in the shift lever assembly or the ignition interlock cassette

the hissing sounds are probably the brake booster seals from you pumping hard on the pedal,
if your shifter is located on the floor the shift inter lock is just a solenoid that gets its power from the stop light switch,
