If it isn't low on brake fluid (which can cause that on some cars) then I would look for a corroded connector at the rear taillights...

I have a 1999 GMC Envoy. The button will not depress to take it out of park to engage any other gear. What am I looking for as the problem?


Most vehicles require that you step on the brake firmly to disengage the shifter, and if you are stepping on the brake its possible that your brake lights are faulty. Look for a bad fuse, or brake light switch activator under the dash near the brake pedal.

Won't shift out of park


You probably have a defective brake light switch. The brake light circuit controls the shift interlock. This is made so small children cannot shift the vehicle out of park....You have to step on the brake and work the shifter at the same time...little kids can't do that. Anyway, check your brake lights to see if they are working. If they are not working, this is your problem. The most likely cause would be the brake switch mounted under the dash on the pedal assembly.

96 F250 can't shift out of park


NOTE: Your vehicle is equipped with a

brake-shift interlock feature. This

feature prevents you from shifting

from P (Park) unless you have the

brake pedal depressed. (The ignition

must be in the ON position.) If you

cannot shift from P (Park) with the

brake pedal depressed:


1. Apply the parking brake.

2. Remove the key.

3. Insert the key and rotate one position
clockwise (ignition in the OFF position).

4. Apply the brake pedal and shift to N

(Neutral). (If the vehicle is shifted to P

(Park), you must repeat the previous steps.)

5. Start the vehicle.


If you need to shift out of P (Park) by using the

alternate procedure described above, it is

possible that a fuse has blown and that your

brakelamps may also not be functional.


WARNING

DO NOT DRIVE YOUR VEHICLE UNTIL

YOU VERIFY THAT THE BRAKELAMPS
ARE WORKING.

check fuse 13 based on the attached diagram.

If this fuse is bad replace it. If it is not bad, blows again, or continues to be stuck in park then you need a new brake interlock switch that can be found on the brake pedal up underneath the dash.mustang_guru_2.jpg

Parking Brake Fault light is coming on? I reset the battery and it keeps coming on. It starts with the "apply parking brake" light and then when you take off, it goes to a parking brake fault? Please...


This is a common fault often caused by low battery voltage, before you start taking expensive actions with the park brake modules etc get your battery checked for 100% efficiency.
Hope this helps, good luck.

My shifter locks when i've just turned the car on and try to shift from park to drive. It moves to the right a little bit, but will not move down into reverse. Ideas?


There may be a malfunction in the shift interlock sys.
This sys. keeps the shift from being moved from park
unless the brake peddle is depressed. There are 5 fuse's, directly or indirectly related to the interlock system. Fuse #6 15amp in the fuse box under the hood on the left side. The next 4 are in the fuse box
behind the left side of the dash. Fuse #3 15amp/fuse
#18 15amp/fuse #16 20amp and fuse #4 15amp.
Check these first, before you move on to the brake
light switch, under the dash at the brake peddle.
And the shift lock solenoid, under the console left of
the shift lever. Hope this helps.

No break light, can not shift gear.


your brake light switch has failed. this will also allow you to shift out of park when you hit the brake pedal. when you hit the brake pedal the brake light should come on and the shift interlock solenoid will activate(you might hear a clicking sound under the dash or near the shift handle) allowing you to shift out of park.

My brake lights won't work thus causing my automatic shiter the lock into park. any suggestions thanks chris


Look above your brake pedal and you will see your brake switch up along your brake pedal arm. It will either be between the brake arm and the firewall so when you brake it pushes the switch in. Or it will be between the dash and the brake arm so when you brake it pulls the switch out. This switch will need to be replaced.

No tail lights or brake lights/must start car in neutral


Look up at the top of the brake pedal under dash and you should see a switch hooked to the pedal with a LG/R and LG wire. You should have power on the LG/R wire then when you depress pedal it should have power on the LG then.
Another question does the 3rd or high mount brake lamp illuminate when pedal is depressed?

Stuck in Park


The park lock mechanism is deactivated by the brake switch. Check to make sure the brake lights are working before any other repairs are made. When the key is in the on position and you depress the brake pedal it allows you to take the car out of park. One can usually turn the key one click and not have power to the park lock mechanism. Then depress the brake pedal and put the car in neutral. With your foot on the brake pedal you can start the car and drive normal but when you put the car in park the process will have to be repeated. Often times one of the wires to the brake light switch on the brake pedal gets brittle and causes intermittent contact or no contact. Check this first.
