Question about 1998 Toyota Corolla

1 Answer

98 corolla No LIghts in shifter panel

I noticed that my automatic shift panel does not light up. I've had the car for three years plus and thought that it was not meant to light up. But I noticed a couple weeks ago that it did, but it has not since. All the other dash lights seem to be working just fine. And I checked the fuses can't figure out which one is for that area but all the fuses seem to be intact. Not really sure what needs to be done here.

Why does my truck only go into gear sometimes and no brake lights


Year/make/model?? Most probable cause of this would be a defective brake switch as this switch controls the brake lights as well as the shift release solenoid

Why would my automatic car not shift into gear when the car is in drive and running


Because the brake light switch is not working and you have NO brake lights, power to the shifter is through the brake light switch.

Our 1994 toyotal corolla will not shift out of park


The most common problem brake switch, NO BRAKE LIGHTS, NO SHIFT.
the other possibilities interlock shift solenoid, that is the one that the brake switch has to activate so you can move your shifter.

First let somebody tell you is you have brake lights, if don't then replace brake switch. If you do then listen for a click inside the center console by the shifter. no click then you need the solenoid.

By the meantime remove the little square window by the shifter and stick a pen or little screw driver push the button that is inside that would allow you to shift.

Light in toyota corolla VE 98, automatic gear shifter is not working how to fix it?


you have to remove the screws (or bolts) inside the center console compartment. pry up the little ring around the shifter. pull up the e-brake and pull that whole assembly up. once removed there is a small 194 bulb located on the drivers side on the bottom. you should see the little black base. twist counterclockwise to remove. replace bulb and reinstall

Can't shift out of park - automatic transmission


does your brake lights work? It sounds like the shift lock isn't working which could be caused by the brake light switch not sending a signal to the shift lock solenoid that your foot is on the brake. If you can rule out the brake light switch then it could be the shift lock solenoid which should be under the gear shifter.

there is a solenoid that releases the shifter when you step on the brake pedal.there is by the shifter a little tab that can be popped out with a small screwdriver,and using your key,put into the hole and the mechanical device will release the shifter.
it is called a shift lock override

Automatic shifter noise


Hello, and welcome to FixYa.
What you are hearing is the "Shift-interlock solenoid" activating. That is the device that keeps the shifter from being shifted into drive without your foot on the brake pedal. The brake light switch sends power to the Shift interlock solenoid, and, when powered, the oin retracts, allowing you to move the shift lever. This is a normal condition. Nothing to be concerned about. The lights dim because of the slight draw on the alternator.

I would really appreciate a "FixYa" rating for my assistance.
Thanks in advance.
