Your car should have an E-brake engage/release lever. Please inspect the push button on the end of the lever. Does the button depress and release correctly? My guess is that the lever needs to be repaired or replaced. Maybe the internal spring has broke and the button wont release. If the button doesn't release, the ratchet wont engage. Write back and let me know what you found or if you have other questions, good luck.

My 1995 jaguar starts but i cant get the shift to work


with the ignition on press the brake can you her aclick from the gear lever area i suspect not the lever is more than likely stuck in park the soleniod that releases the gear lever
is not being powered the most likely cause is the brake light switch on the brake pedal you can get it out of park by removing the little plug near the gear lever and pushing something like your key in to the hole to manually release the gear lever there is also a relay under the j gate that may be faulty/dislodged or the release soleniod itself faulty

I have a Lexus RX300 1999 model and have this recent problem. engine running normally but gear gets stuck in Parking mode and won't shift. had to depress the emergency button on the gear shift and


Hi there,

Some automatic vehicles rely on the brake switch (mounted on brake pedal) to be activated by depressing brake pedal. This signal then operates a relay and switch, to release the gear lever.

Firstly, I would check the brake pedal switch (are your brake lights working?).

If brake switch is confirmed OK, then inspect the relay (and related circuit components) of the gear release switch.

Seabring wont come out of park


check the fuses especially the one(s) for the brake lights. have someone stand in back of car and see if brake lights even work.when you step on brake pedal,you should be able to hear a "click" that is the shift release solenoid letting the shifter come out of park. u might also have a bad brake lite switch or broken/burnt wiring coming off the brake light switch.

I have a jaguar xj8 and the gear got stuck in park ,and I can't put it in reverse or drive. How can I fix this problem


Most likely the lock out switch at the brake pedal is at fault, because in order to put it in in to any gear you have to step on the brake first ! Their is a switch located which prevents you put it in gear with out stepping on the brake pedal, so check this switch first.

2007 Ford Explorer Sport-Trac automatic trans shift lever release.


Most common is a failing brake light switch. If the brake lights don't come on when the shifter is stuck and they work when the shifter works you need a new switch.
