Assuming the key lock is turning correctly, it could be the brake pedal switch or the lock solenoid that locks the shifter into park.
You could try unlocking the key switch but not turning the switch on, then try moving the shifter. Sometimes the lock solenoid is not "locked" until you turn the key switch on.

92 olds cutlass supreme, shifter moves into gear, but car will not move. Help


It\'s right where the shifter cable goes into the shaft, look
right next to the steering cloumn under the hood,the switch
won\'t keep the car from moving tho,it just wouldn\'t start.But you
could look there to make sure the cable hasn\'t broken or come
unhooked. The cable goes to an arm about 3 inches long just
make sure the arm moves when shifting.

2000 sable- can't shift out of park. shifter glides and needle on dash moves there's no gears shifting. is the transmission blown?


Not likely a blown transmission. More of a shifter cable issue. There is an adjustment nut on the ****** end. It could be loose or missing. If the nut is fine you have a broken cable.

My suv won't shift gears what can i do?


if the shifter is moving then it is probably your trans. but if the shifter is not moving from the park possition (if it is an automatic) check to see if brake lights are coming on if not check fuse for brake lights,it also controls your shift lock.try turning key to possition before lights come on dash board and moving shifter into nuetral pos. then start car and put into gear give that a try, if it does the shift lock isn`t working.

HAVE CHRYSLER 300 THAT WILL NOT COME OUT OF PARK, DROVE ALL DAY PARKED AT OFFICE FOR 1 HR, WITH BRAKE ON WILL ALLOW SHIFTER TP MOVE TO RIGHT, BUT WILL NOT ALLOW YOU TO PUT IT INTO REVERSE OR DRIVE


Its the 'pink' thing. Remove the shifter knob, use a small screwdriver to pop off shifter bezel, un snap shifter cover, 4 clips, two on passenger side, two on driver side, remove 4 each 10 mm nuts holding shifter to the car. O.K. in the front of the shifter, is a pink cam, that prevents the shifter from moving, if the car is not on. It has broken. The small cable on your left controls it. Remove it. (disables it) Reassembel, and get the hell out of there!. Mark, 209-613-0092. Took me 15 min.

Shift lever won't go to park and moves stiff even while pushing on metal lever on the side of the transmission


The first thing i would do is to disconnect the cable at the lever on the ******, next move the lever at the ****** by hand and it should move by hand with little force. if the lever is hard to move then you may have a trany shift rod problem. next with cable removed try to go through the gears with the shifter , the shifter should flow with ease if its hard to move then its the shifter cable or the shifter itself. to find out which one you will need to disconnect cable at sifter and then move the shifter to see if its still tight. if the shifter is tight to move with cable removed then its the shifter but if it moves with ease then you have a bad cable. good day.

1990 honda accord lx is stuck in drive. i can move the shifter but it won't change gears. can't get it in park or neutral only drive works. figured out i can restart engine if i hold the shifter...


if you open up the hood and look on top of the transmission you will see a gold colored arm connected to a rod or cable this cable or rod probably came dissconnected or broke just rech in with some channel locks and move it possition by turning the gold rod shaft coming out of the transmission. it might not be gold it might be black depending on how dirty the engine is. if you have some one sit in the car and move the shifter you will see what needs to be moved. hope this helps

Gear shift will not move from park


First thing to check is your brake lights. The brake interlock for the shifter relies on the switch that turns your brake lights on. If it's not working, you won't have brake lights OR the ability to move the shifter out of park. In an emergency, most of these vehicles have a small plug near the shifter that you can remove, push a button, and move the shifter without pushing the brake pedal.

Good luck.
