Usually a problem with the brake switch or the solenoid that locks the shifter in park.
You may be able to unlock the key switch without turning the switch on, then take the shifter out of park.

SOURCE: steering wheel column

there is a couple of rods on the left side of the colum.
take the panel of, put the key on the ignition. switch on and see wich rod is moving and thats the one that goes to a box type switch.
that switch is the problem, either is loose or faulty, if it wiggles try to tighten it up, if is tight then the switch is faulty and you will have to replace it, you can find it at any parts store

SOURCE: 2002 dodge durango wont shift out of park

Not sure that this is the solution, but I found a work around on my Durango. If you take off the cover on the shifter there is a lever (button) that you can dislodge and the vehicle will release out of park. After I did this a couple of times, I haven't had the issue happen again.

SOURCE: 2002 Dodge Intrepid ES shift selector is stiff.

You have a shift cable. This cable may be getting a
little worn. One way to check it is, disconnect the
cable at the transmission and see if it is still stiff.
Look under the hood, just to the right of the brake
booster. You will see 2 cables that come through
the firewall, one is the throttle cable, it will go to the
right towards the center of the engine. The other is
the shift cable, it will go down to the transmission
linkage. Disconnect the cable there and see if it
shifts any easier. If not, replace the cable.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

04 pt cruiser wont wtart


Sounds as it you have an electrical short somewhere and a connection to the Power steering pump. Did you purchase any gas while going to store? Some under ground fuel tanks can get water into them this time of year especially. If it is flooded, it will not start. Hold gas pedal to floor for 15 seconds and release, then try to start. If it does, it could be as simple as an O2 sensor or Heater sensor causing the problem. Good Luck!!

When you say won't start do you mean it will crank over but not fire off or do you mean it doesn't' turn over at all? We refer to this a "No crank no start" or "Cranks will not start"

Ihave a 1991 tempo. when i went to start it today it would not shift out of park. the steering wheel still moves but the gear shift wont. any idea what could be wrong


Could be a faulty brake light switch, or the solenoid for the shifter lock.
You may be able to shift it out of park if you unlock the steering wheel but not turn the key to On.

What can I do if will not go into park and I can not get my key out of ignition? 2000 dodge intrepid please help


check and see if the steering wheel is locked into place. if it is try turning the wheel a little more to see if you can get the key to turn to unlock the wheel. see if the key will come out with the wheel unlocked. you could try putting it into neutral and applying the parking brake. see if the key will come out. also you could try getting under the car and the should see a cable connected to a little lever on the transmission. push the lever to get it in to park. you can manually put the car in park from there. make sure you have the parking brake on and/or wheel chocks to make sure the car dosent roll on you.

Locked up steering wheel


I think your steering wheel may have been under tension when you parked it. It happens to everyone. Try turning the wheel the direction that it will move and turn the key with foot on brake to disengage the locking mechanism. If this doesn't work, reply back to this post and I'll help you further...MK

Key will not turn to start vehicle.


Try pushing in the key while turning the wheel either way. And jiggling it. This happens because the steering locks for the car's protection. If we park it with the wheels turned, it locks in that position. If that does not work, you may have to call a good mechanic to help you.
