Question about 2009 Toyota Corolla

Won't shift out of park

New 2009 Corolla with 1100 miles on it. Stopped and put the car in park. Came back several minutes later and the shifting handle will not move to the right so as to be able to pullo down into reverse or another forward position. It seems to be locked in park.

    Great job Toyota. You are certainly a Guru. Thanks so much for your help. The fuse worked like a charm.

    I was operating unit as usual, went to back up, buzzer and 2nd from left red panel light went on, no forward or reverse. Let sit a few minutes, did operate in F&R just a few seconds, then again stopped moving.

Look to see if the brake lights work. If they do not come on when the brke pedal is depressed, the fuse may be blown. The brake electrical circuit also controls the shift interlock. You can take the vehicle out of park manually by removing the small square trim tab by the shifter, and pressing the button under it.

Could be the brake switch, or the shift lock solenoid.
Both components would need to be tested. And you may be able to shift out of park if you try before you turn the key switch to the on position.

It started with the loss of my cruise control. I had no problems with shifting out of park. Came home put the car in to reverse and shut it down. 30 minutes later, started the car, I can move the lever...


Sounds like the cable from the shift lever to the transmission has broken or come loose. You may have to get it towed in to a dealer to have it fixed.

Gear shift is locked. we can only shift the car


The automatic transmissions on these vehicles are known to die early in the life of the car and Volvo is well aware that the vehicle has a dud auto transmission. The symptoms you have mentioned are an indication that the transmission has had it. It's basically just running in limp mode now.

You don't say what mileage this vehicle has clocked up but even low mileage vehicles have had to have the entire transmission replaced due to failures like yours. You also, no doubt, have a transmission alert showing on the dash.

The bad news is that a replacement automatic transmission will now be necessary and this will be costly. Even then, with these cars, you could experience another transmission failure after just another 30000 miles or so of driving.

This is very common on Matrix/Corollas and is repairable by way of replacement PCM to correct invalid parameters. the labor is low but the part is very expensive.

Expect approximately $89 or less in labor, and $648 for the new PCM

Loud clanking noise in gear if the clutch is not engaged


Almost sounds like a throwout bearing problem. Either way, bring the car back and make them fix it. It will be covered under the warranty so dont let them try to convince you otherwise.
