SOURCE: 2007 Sebring locked in park, but is able to start car.

Brake -transmission interlock system. Solenoid faulty or out of adjustment.
The air swishing sound is probably just your brake pads getting worn down, or some dirt in them. If they aren't sqeeking when you touch the brake, you're okay, or it might have been air coming out of your tire! There isn't much weight on the rear, so it's harder to notice a low tire. Better check it.

1994sidekick stuck in park

check to see if the brake lights come on when you press brake pedal. if they don't it is stuck in park because your brake light switch doesn't work and the swich also tells the shifter lock to unlock so you can move shifter. so If no brake lights fix brake light switch and that will fix it. the switch is located at the top of brake pedal

Both brake lights went out on our 2007 suzuki reno. What could be the problem? When I got in my car it would not come out of park. We had to hit the over ride and then dicovered both brake lights were...

your brake light switch above the pedal has failed or is stuck in. Look up at it to see if it is releasing the button when the brake is pressed. If yes, replace the switch. It only costs about $20, but may be a pain to get in and out. The switch looks like this:

2007 suzuki forenza shift lever will not shift from park

check your owner's manual for shift interlock and how to bypass. make sure your brake lights are working. If not check for blown fuse. brake light switch failure will cause shifter interlock to not function. neutral safety switch must also be checked.

Seabring wont come out of park

check the fuses especially the one(s) for the brake lights. have someone stand in back of car and see if brake lights even work.when you step on brake pedal,you should be able to hear a "click" that is the shift release solenoid letting the shifter come out of park. u might also have a bad brake lite switch or broken/burnt wiring coming off the brake light switch.

My 07 suzuki forrenza will not shift out of park without inserting a key in. The shift lock realease

My wife had 2007 suzuki forenza with the same problem , I look it over, the problem was the brake light switch. I Bought a new one at suzuki dealer in orlando for $15.10 part # 37740-86z21 and replaced it my self , it took less than 5 munites to great now.The reason the gear would not shift out of park is that the brake switch has to send a signal to the relay switch on the gear shifter to remove the shift lock .If this switch is not working it can not send that signal to the relay.Another way you can tell it is the brake light switch is that your rear brake light would not work .You can also bypass this and use your car until you get the brake light switch , here how .look at your gear shifter and locate a small oval shaped cut out (it may have shift lock written next to it ).take a small flat screw driver or some thing Similar and pry out that little plastic incert .Then when you start your car and you are about to shift out of park place a key of any a small screw flat driver into the hole and push down and shift out of park.Once out of park you can shift to any gear if you return the shifter to park you would have to incert the screw driver again.If you need to locate the brake light switch just follow your brake pedal up under the dash board it will be a small white plastic switch attached above the btrke pedal .IT is very simple to replace ,when you locate it just twist it anti clock wise and it will come off , then press the clip in the plug and remove the brake switch from the wire harness.To replace the new one just press the brake pedal down place the switch back where the old one came off and twist clock wise until it snaps into place.and replace the wire plug.REMBER When you get your new brake switch DO NOT press it down or it will get stuck.IF this happens just pull it back it out.and do not buy this part at any auto parts store because the connecter woul be smaller .go to a suzuki dealer ....THEN WHEN YOU FIX THIS PROBLEM GET RID OF THE CAR THIS IS ONLY THE START FOR PROBLEMS TO COME ...GOOD LUCK..
