SOURCE: parking break lever stuck

most likely the brake cables have seized up- it is best just to change them, if you do get the handle to move it may cause the brake to stick on and will warp and ruin your back brakes-best way to tell is to disconect the cable from the rear drums, which involves taking the rear drums and bearings off.hope this helps and good luck

SOURCE: My 2001 Ford Mustang v-6 automatic gear shifting lever wont move

The shift interlock does not allow the car to shift out of park unless the brake pedal is depressed.  Quick fix is with the car running to set the parking brake and turn the car to off and remover the key.  Put the key back in and turn one click to on.  Shift the car into neutral and you can start the car and go.  The repair for this is either the brake switch located on the brake pedal being replaced.  I had a broken wire leading to the switch that caused the problem.  It also can be a blown fuse.

Make sure you have brake lamps. The shift interlock solenoid is powered by the brake lamp switch.

SOURCE: 2001 ford escort stuck in park lever won't move

If it wont move into gear,the safety switch is malfunctioning. You can take the plug out of the hole on the upper right side of the console just to the right of the gear shift lever. put a philips screwdriver in the hole and press down. this will manually release the gear shifter mechanism.

SOURCE: It is extremely hard to move the shift lever from

Your shift cable needs to be adjusted. I would take it to the garage that installed it and have them adjust it.
Hope this was helpful.

Ford Galaxy 2011 gear stick stuck in park won't move


Lots of modern vehicles fitted with auto transmission have a safety lock preventing the gear lever being moved unless the ignition is on and the brake pedal applied.

This probably applies to your car and if the system is faulty it will leave the gear lever stuck. Usually it is possible to hear the lock release.

If the transmission end selector lever is accessible, disconnecting the cable or rod from the lever and moving it by hand will provide a clue whether the problem is inside the box or the cable or gear lever.

it could be that the ignition lock and/0r the brake pedal sensor that unlock (allows you to move the shifter) are/is not working correctly or has failed. You will have to check both those elements as well as the cable beneath the consul covering and the solenoid that pulls the cable.

if you look on the center council where the shift lever is you will see a small plastic button on the drivers. Remove the button. Insert a small screwdriver into the hole and push down. You will then be able to move the shift lever into nuetral and push the car.

Gear shift stuck in park


The BTSI (Brake Transmission Shift Interlock) has a small spring retainer on the park safety. A small plastic tab breaks & releases the spring. This requires the shifter to be disassembled in order to be repaired.

Repaired mine Sunday May 1st and can provide detailed instructions if desired.

If you are lucky, your brake interlock is the only problem. There is a bypass switch located beside the gear selector. Remove the small "cubby" bin located next to the gear shift by simply lifting up to remove. You will note a small access port and a pink button contained therein. Press the pink button to override the brake interlock.

If you still cannot shift into park, then the shifter must be removed for the spring repair. Even if yours is still under warranty, you will get another shifter that will eventually fail due to poor engineering.

Please let me know if you would like my assistance.
