Shifter button stuck


there should be 2 Phillips screws hold the shifter knob to the shaft. once you take out those screws it should just pop up. as far as I know there are no springs in the knob it's just a slide button. the rest of the parts are part of the shifter assembly.

Vehicle stuck in park


You must depress brake pedal to get shifter to move. Shifter unit is electrical, not mechanical to the transmission!

Ignition switch won't release key when it is put in park. But when I removed switch and key tumbler, the key tumbler/cylinder releases key. Why won't the key release when it is in park?


Most newer models have a safety feature called
shift interlock. This prevents the key from being turned back
to the lock position if you forget to place the gear selector in park.
Depending on the model,
If it uses a cable, it may be sticking or needs adjusting.
If it uses an electrical solenoid. may be blown fuse or park switch.
Tap, shake, and pull up on the shifter and make sure it's in park.

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.

Cannot shift out of park without using the over ride button under the center console. What is causing this?


Check fuses could be blown fuse. Or another possibility could be brake pedal switch. Brake pedal must be depressed to release shifter from park. Also try and check voltage at solenoid that releases the shifter from park. The solenoid should be located under the shifter, power should only be there when brake is depressed. If voltage is not present with or with out brake depressed than check fuse and switches before solenoid. If voltage is present with brake depressed and no action occurs at the solenoid than that definitely means it is bad. hope you get it fixed..

This car has a lock out device as all vehicles have. You need to depress the brake firmly to shift into gear as you may know. The solenoid that retracts the lock out for the shifting is at fault and needs to be replaced. You will see it if you remove the entire top of the shifting console
