My gear shifter gets stuck in park..on my 2008 dodge caliber

All cars have a release button on the shift column for towing. Look for a little square or circle nee your shifter that you can pop the plastic piece off of. Usually you can stick a key or somethin to press the button down and put the car into any gear. I donf know if that helps you for now. You might also wanna make sure you have your foot on the brake when your tryin to put in into gear. Some. Newer carz wont lt you shift out of park unless you are pressing the brake.

Broken shifter cable, how do i repair it

Put park brake on or block wheels, and shift into neutral (if possible), If not go to tranny and pop the cable off the tranny lever (pry off with screwdriver). Turn tranny shift lever, until it clicks twice, leave here for later adjustment. Follow the cable to the adjuster, pull out the flat steel retainer clip, pinch the sides to remove cable from bracket. Remove upper covers below the steering wheel. Remove kick panel below steering colomn. Remove cable from steering wheel shifter assembly (pry off and remove clip same as at tranny). Remove the side kick panel and follow cable along floor. You may find it easier to remove the driver seat (4 nuts on floor and wiring). Pull cable thru floor and replace. Reverse procedure to install. Lock the cable and clip at steering colomn, but leave the clip off at tranny. The tranny should still be in neutral. Now turn key to run and shift the shifter into neutral. At the tranny side cable there is a white square button, press in and lock cable to lever. install retainer clip. move shifter thru ranges and ensure it locks in park. Readjust if needed by pressing button and moving shifter lever on tranny.

Our 1994 toyotal corolla will not shift out of park

The most common problem brake switch, NO BRAKE LIGHTS, NO SHIFT.
the other possibilities interlock shift solenoid, that is the one that the brake switch has to activate so you can move your shifter.

First let somebody tell you is you have brake lights, if don't then replace brake switch. If you do then listen for a click inside the center console by the shifter. no click then you need the solenoid.

By the meantime remove the little square window by the shifter and stick a pen or little screw driver push the button that is inside that would allow you to shift.

My honda accord 2003 automatic wont let me put gear shift from Park To drive. I cant press de button to make it get to drive

Sounds like your brake interlock is not working. You can manually override it. Check your owners manual, but there should be a small square around the trim around the shifter. Pry up the square and there is a release mechanism to manually release the solenoid. It should be covered in your owners manual how to override it.
I think to replace it you need to take apart the shifter trim.

My son press some of the buttons and it displays "O/D OFF". please tell me how to turn on O/D. Early response would highly appreciated. REgards Jacob Francis

Hello, welcome to FixYa. Please allow us to assist you.

The OD OFF light has been turned on via the small square button on the side of the shifter handle. This button should normally be in the 'depressed' position, which allows the OD to engage. The OD OFF light is illuminated on the inst panel to alert you that the OD has been manually disengeged. The OD is the final shift of the transmission, thusly giving you maximum fuel mileage.

To rectify this, press the button on the side fo the shifter handle.

Thanks for choosing FixYa for assistance today.

I'm not familiar with when Chrysler stopped using the brake safety system or if they did on that model. If you are pressing the brake pedal and the shift release lever is not releasing the shifter, you will need to open the console and visually check to see if when you press the shift release button the locking pin actually raises to release the shifter. If this occurs then you need to have the transmission inspected and the braking system. All of this is on the assumption that your shifter is mounted on a center console. If it is column mounted you need to have the transmission inspected. One other thing you can try, Even though the shifter is console mounted you can still make selection by turning the column just above the dashboard to shift between the selection. I know it sounds strange but sometimes this does work indicating that the problem is truly the shifter assembly.

96 tercel won't let me shift out of PARK

I have that problem too, there is a little square cap on the shift consloe, its about 1/2 inch square if you pry that cap off with a screwdriver ..there is a small white button in the hole. That button is an emergency manual release for the shifter. If you push in and hold that button down you can manually get the shifter out of park.

Cant get key out

I have a 2006 HHR and with a floor shifter this is the problem. There is a pin that goes thru the shift cable that is falling out. Above the window buttons pry the little plastic holder out remove the 2 screws take the plastic off of the sides of the console you will see a black plastic frame with holes in it I cut a larger hole between 2 of the small holes with a hack saw on the driver side. Put the car in neutral drivers seat all the way back pull on the shift button and you will see the pin pull it out with a pair of needle nose pliers. I put 598 black loctite sealant on mine and reinstall. Shift back to park if you can get the key out and the doors unlock you have the pin in the right spot and it is making both switches when in park. You can see if it is on the switches by looking thru the hole where the little holder came out. The pin sticks out about a 1/2" on each side. If you don't have timre to do the above my car has a small square plastic access panel under the steering colunm pop it off and push a release and get the key turned off your book will walk you thru this it is like they knew this problem would occur Good luck

Shift button won't push in to get out of park

When you get back to the car, do this: Check to see if the brake lights work. If the brake lights do not work, the shifter will not come out of park. If the fuse for the brakes is blown, replace it, there are spare fuses under the hood, in the fuse box. If the fuse blows again, you have a short in the brake light circuit. The good news it this: Toyota provides an "over-ride" function to defeat the shift lock device, if you had a dead battery, and need to get it out of park. Look closely at the shifter/console area. You will see a small square piece of trim, about 1/2" square, or smaller. Pry this out with something like a small flat screwdriver or a metal nail file. Once the trim panel is removed, you will see a small button. Pressing this button will allow the car to come out of park. You will need to use this button every time until you get the cause of the problem sorted out. This should get you going. Thanks for choosing FixYa; a FixYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated.
