On the base of the shifter under the console.It recieves power from fuse 28 of the fuse panel.Are you sure you have brake lights? This is what energizes the solenoid.

I hear a cclicking noise when I step on break when key is on. I don't hear the click while car is running. Its a 97 infinity q45


Most automatics have a lock on the transmission selector.
When the vehicle is in P (Park) you are not able to select drive or a gear unless you depress the brake pedal.
My Audi Q7 ha a solenoid and you hear it click when I put my foot on the brake.
This solenoid stops you from accidentally selecting a gear without the brake depressed.

Is it a single click when you depress the pedal.
Or is it a constant click click click ?

2004 suzuki automatic transmission stuck in park


that is park lock failure, build into the shifter section,it has an
electric solenoid lock. and a bypass button.
in the glove box, see oper. guide, it tells you where the erg. release
button location, and varies by sub body type and options.
its hidden cover, or a slot, on most cars. the slot type is to insert
any key in slot and push. bang, it opens (brake set,etc)

The knob on my gear shift came off and now I can get out of park


Did you reinstall the gear shift knob? Without the knob attached you should still be able to push down on shifter button with your foot on the brake to shift.

If you cannot push in button, listen carefully for a click (underneath the gear shift) when you put your foot on the brake. If you do not hear a click, your shift solenoid could be bad or your brake solenoid could be bad (which supplies power to your shift solenoid). Your brake solenoid will also control your brake lights so simply put your foot on the brake and have someone see if they light up. If they do light up your brake solenoid is good and you'll have to troubleshoot your shift solenoid.

The gear shift is locked in place and will not shift into reverse. The vehicle has a shift release button on the console to the right of the shifter. When depressed the button unlocks the shifter and the...


It has a brake-transaxle shift interlock. You should just push the brake in to shift, but if you have done that, and it still won't shift, with foot on the brake, push the shifter all the way into park. Sometimes they don't always go into park all the way. Also if you park on a hill, it puts pressure on the btsi, so you cant shift it. Have someone push the vehicle back, just enough to take the pressure off and it should shift. I had this happen to me with my Grand Am.

Having trouble getting button on side of gear shift pushed in to put vehicle put in gear. sometimes takes like 5 minutes to get released stared all at once


try and push the gear shifter forward like you are forcing it into park. while holding pressure on it try pushing the button in, and make sure your foot is on the brake pedal. Some cars have a safety feature that requires the brakes to be depressed before you can shift into drive.

I get a clicking from the gesr shift area when I apply or release the foot brake


This is normal when gear shift is in park. When footbrake is depressed a mechanism in the J gate releases the gear shift so that it can be shifted out of the park position. The clicking noise is is the sound of the mechanism.

1997 Lincoln Continental transmission


I am not entirely certain I understand what button you are describing. However I think you are talking about the button that has to be depressed in order to shift gears. Aside from the transmission not being able to return to the park position, it has no effect on the key being removed from the ignition lock cylinder. The ignition lock cylinder wearing out and not releasing is a very common problem and requires a new ignition lock cylinder.
