Question about 1999 Subaru Legacy
Has shift lock, I press the brake but still wont shift out of park...any idea's?...thanks
You probably have a fuse or circuit burned. If not the relay that commands the unlock mode when you press the brakes is gone. This is obviously a security device. You shoud get it fixed. If you still want to move your car, you can override this security by removing the plastic cap that is around the transmission shifter inside the car. It looks like a cover. It's press fit. By applying a small pressure sideways you should be able to remove it. You'll see then the base of the shifter. On the right side there should be a mechanical box with a hole. Insert a stick like a robertson screwdriver there, press down while shifting out of park. You'll be able to drive to the garage.

Tips for a great answer:
The automatic transmission shift lock control switch.
The park/neutral safety switch.
With the ignition in the ON position, battery positive voltage is supplied to the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The circuit continues through the normally-closed switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The park/neutral safety switch provides a path to ground for the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid in the PARK position. This energizes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid, mechanically locking the shift linkage in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open, causing the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid to de-energize. This allows the shift lever to move from the PARK position. When the shift lever is out of the PARK position the contacts in the neutral safety switch open and the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is de-energized.
