SOURCE: The brake lights my 2000

We bought a 2000 Blazer in '02 and one day I noticed there were no brake lights, but the 3rd light on top worked fine. I did some research online and found out there was a recall on this problem due to the hazard switch on the column. I also found out if I wiggled the hazard switch a certain way, the brake lights worked. I was able to get by for awhile by wedging a 'widget' beside the hazard switch button and the hole in the column cover. This worked fine until someone would knock the widget out of place.
I finally got around to having the switch replaced at a local dealer. All was fine until last week when I was told the brake lights were out again and I found out my hazard lights didn't work either. I changed out the switch assembly myself this time, and once I had it out I saw what happened. The brake light voltage comes in to the assembly on a white wire, and the first contact this goes through is on the hazard switch. In my case the contact had obviously overheated from the brake light current and melted the plastic holding the contact in place, thus breaking the circuit to the brakes. Either a poor design or too much current for the circuit to handle.
Soooooo now I am in the process of replacing the four bulbs in the tail/brake light assembly with 3 watt Luxeon LED plug-in replacements. The current draw of the original bulbs was measured at 2.2 amps at 13.8 volts, times 4 bulbs makes about 8.8 amps that goes through the contact in the hazard switch whenever the brakes are stomped. The LED replacements draw .2 amp each, so times 4 will be .8 amp or less than 1/10th of the original equipment bulbs. These LED bulbs in my opinion are as bright or brighter than the original equipment and hopefully will help from burning out another switch assembly.. David

SOURCE: ABS Light and Parking brake light on

check your fuses, then check the ABS valve located beside the master cylinder and the wiring to it and finally check your speed sensor, which is located on the transmission on a 2 wheel drive and on the transfer case on a 4 wheel drive. but make sure hat your E-brake is released as it will cause these lites to come on.

SOURCE: Brake lights wont work! All others do!

I just had the same problem on my '04 Silverado. All it was was corrosion in the socket/bulb. Put some dialectic grease on both the bulbs and worked them in and out a couple of times and now they work fine. Was weird that they both went out suddenly and together but I guess they are made exactly the same.

SOURCE: 04 Trailblazer Will not shift out of park.

Sounds like the cable from the shifter to the transmission probable snaped. It happened to me at the emission inspection station. What a nightmare. To check this you will need some help. Have someone set in the car and apply the brakes as well as the emergency brake just incase. Get under the truck and find the cable from the shifter to the transmission. Have the person in the truck move the shifter lever from park to another gear. If the arm where the cable attaches to the transmission does not move when the lever is moved it is the cable. They are relitively cheap and you should be able to replace it yourself.

Trail blazer gear shift button


Could be the brake switch or the shift lock solenoid. You may be able to turn the key lock to the unlock position, move the shifter out of park, then start the engine in neutral.
The shifter and the shift lock solenoid would need to be inspected.

When you operate the brakes, does the brake light come on?
If not, then check and/or replace your brake switch (located towards the top of the brake pedal).

If your brake light works, then check the gear shift lock solenoid operation. Check for power to the solenoid, when the brake pedal is depressed and check the solenoid movement. Replace if necessary.

Gear shift on 2006 Nissen Sentra locks in park and can't move it once it locks and have to take safety lock button out to get it into other gears. I need a diagram of how it works and to fix it.


This car is equipped with a park lock safety system, the system releases the shifter when it receives a signal that the brake lights are on from the brake on and off switch at the brake pedal. So the first thing to do when this happens is check to see if the brake lights are working, if not that is the problem.

Car will not come out of park


The park lock safety system gets power from the brake light circuit, this means unless the brake lights work and the pedal is depressed the system locks the shifter in the part position. The first thing you do is check the brake lights, if the lights work you have other issues best left to the dealer if the brake lights don't worth then you have found the cause and just need to repair the brake lights, this can be the brake light switch or the wiring connector to the switch. Repair as needed.

My 2002 tbird won't shift out of park I played with the shifter and rocked the car and got it out a couple of times


The first thing to do is check the brake lights, if they don't work the shifter lock will not release the shifter from park. The common problem on this model is the connector at the brake light switch is defective due to broken wires inside the plastic outer insulator.

Shift lever will not move out of park. Engine is running, seat belt fastened, parking brake released, all doors hood and trunk closed, foot firmly on brake pedal.When the button on the side of the shifter...


you should hear a click from the solenoid when you apply the brakes. If your brake lights don't work, your shift lock release won't either. There is a bypass method for emergencies in your owner manual. Check fuse for brake lights. And switch on brake pedal
