Well, the actual solenoids are inside of the transmission, you can see them by removing the trans pan. If it wont go into any gear however, this is not your problem. Normally even if you unplug an electric trans it will default to second gear, and still move normally in reverse. Can you feel 'detents' when you move the shifter from park, or is it really easy to move? If you feel the detents, then it sounds like an internal transmission problem to me. The pump would be my first guess.

What is a detent on a shifter


A detent is a notch or notches in a part used to keep a shifter (in this case) at a certain position. Be that an automatic or stick-shift. You can imply that the shift pattern on a stick-shift has detents for each gear as the shift lever locks and slides in and out of each position for that gear to work when the clutch is released. The detents on an automatic can resemble "steps" which engage a different gear or series of gears(drive) when a certain step is locked into position by a pressure bar or pressure lever.

Sometimes the pressure bar or pressure lever is spring loaded and your hand works against that tension to select a gear or function(drive). There may be an adjustment for the spring tension, or the spring is too weak and the shift assembly must be replaced.

With electronic shift solenoids, some of the shift assembly is different than with the old-style mechanical shifter. The action may be fly by wire with electronic shifts.

I do not know what you have, so there may be differences.

Gear shift solenoid bad


not an easy one to repair if you are a novice. it may not actually be the "shift lock solenoid". there is a small switch on the right side of the shifter assembly, which i have found bad connection at, which fixed the shift lock solenoid malfunction. not an easy one to fix if you dont know what you are doing.

If the battery is dead, the shift interlock solenoid will not disengage the gear shift mechanism. You have to have sufficient current through the brake switch to disengage the interlock. Charging or replacing the battery should do it. Hope this helps
