My trans shift lever push button will not push in when engine is running and brake pedal is pushed down


Check to see if you have brake lights. If the brake light switch under the dash is broken or mis-aligned it can cause the shift lock to stay on

I can't get my brights to stay on without having to hold them on . What might be the issue


I find that to energise the high beam momentarily (to warn oncoming motorists) I pull back on the switch lever but to change to full beam on I push down on the lever until it clicks as the low /high beam is the back and forward motion of the light switch

How to fix the shift cable





  1. Position the steering column transmission shift lever to PARK (P).
  2. Apply the parking brake.
  3. Raise the vehicle. Refer to Vehicle Lifting.




  1. Position the transmission range select lever to PARK (P). Rotate the range select lever clockwise until it reaches the full mechanical stop position.




  1. Slide the black retaining clip forward on the range select lever cable end. This will allow the white lock button to be pushed out.




  1. Push the white lock button on the range select lever cable end out. This will free the metal core adjust body which is inside the cable end. Do not push the white lock button completely out.
  2. Inspect the metal core adjust body on the cable end for dirt or debris that may restrict the travel. Remove any debris by washing the cable end, the metal core adjust body, and the white lock button with soap and water. If the travel of the metal core adjust body remains restricted after the cleaning, replace the cable assembly.
  3. Lower the vehicle.
  4. Ensure that the parking brake is applied.
  5. Turn ON the ignition switch.




  1. Move the transmission shift lever from PARK (P) to 1 and back to PARK (P) ten times.




  1. Place the steering column transmission shift lever in the Park (P) position.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to the OFF position.
  3. Raise the vehicle. Refer to Vehicle Lifting.




  1. Position the transmission range select lever to PARK (P). Rotate the range select lever clockwise until it reaches the mechanical stop position.




  1. Push in the white lock button in order to secure the core adjuster body inside the range select lever cable end.




  1. Slide the black retainer clip rearward over the cable end until it covers the white lock button. Lock the clip over the cable end.
  2. Lower the vehicle.
  3. Turn ON the ignition switch.
  4. Ensure that all the transmission shift light positions (P. R. N. D, 3, 2, 1) engaged and illuminate. If you cannot perform this task, repeat the cable adjustment procedures.
  5. Ensure that the engine starts in PARK (P) and in NEUTRAL (N) positions only. If the engine does not start in PARK (P) and in NEUTRAL (N), the Park/Neutral Position Switch may need adjustment.
  6. Turn the ignition switch to LOCK.
  7. Ensure that the ignition key can only be removed with the transmission shift lever in the PARK (P) position.
  8. Start the engine and check the vehicle transmission shifting. The range select lever cable is properly adjusted if the steering column shift light positions are the same as the transmission engagements.

The lock button on the gearshift will not unlock on my 2002 Chevy TrailBlazer. I read online that I should press an orange lever under the center console but when I looked in there I found the lever on...


Since the lever is obviously no help, try this:

BRAKE LIGHTS AND SHIFT LOCK
Look under the dash, on the brake pedal arm. There are one or two switches that activate brake lights and/or shift unlock. Check for loose mounting nut or a missing rubber nubber. Is the brake pedal coming all the way back up? Look on the floor for something not usually found there. These switches are adjustable and it may be as simple as adjusting them. Have a helper look for brake lights on and shift lever unlocked while you push and release the switches with your finger. Depress the brake pedal to get it out of the way. Remember to set the park brake first. Could just be a bad switch or loose connector. Check fuses and the bulbs. Is shifter fully in Park?

Brake lights won't light up when brake is applied but all other lights work


Without more to go on, I can only suggest that you check out the brake light switch. It will be a mechanical switch located either on, or directly behind the lever of the brake peddle assembly. Basically, the brake peddle is pushed and the lever moves. This will cause the lever to activate the switch, turning on the brake lights. There may also be a brake light fuse. It would be located in the fuse panel, and should be labeled. But, as I said, without specific year and model info that's about as useful as I can be. You can try Google images entering your year, model, and the phrase "fuse panel" to see a picture of your fuse panel. Good luck! I hope this was of some help. Dano

My 1994 Ford Ranger SuperCab won't shift into the overdrive. All the other gears in the tranny shift smooth and work well. It just won't shift into the overdrive. Every once in a while the check engine...


There is an overdrive bypass switch on the end of the shift lever on some, Push the button on the end of the shifter. It is easy to overlook, as it is on the very end of the shift lever, and can be inadvertently switched off when you shift to park. Hope this solves your problem

The shifter locks and it is hard to get it out of gear


check your brake light switch. If it is loose or broken the shifter interlock will not disengage; as the power to the solenoid goes through the brake light switch. Otherwise it is a problem with the the brake light fuse, switch or shifter lock solenoid.

Overriding the system:

On the riight side of the shift lever. There is a small round plastic cover. (The left side of the shift lever is P, the right side of the shift lever is a small round plastic cover about half inch.) Pop out the plastic cover, push the lever on the handle and insert a long philips screwdriver in it. It should shift now even if the engine is off. ( You do not need to turn the screwdriver, just insert it)

I turn off the car, but key will not come out of ignition. Lock on shifter doesnt work. I can shift without pushing button on shifter. This is an automatic.


We had this problem on 06 and it is the shift button that doesn't pop out. You may be able to pull it out so you can remove the key for now. We had ours fixed under warranty (replaced)
