Could not get my 2005 chrysler pacifica out of park. took apart console and replaced pink thing. Now it is still stuck unless i push pink thing fowadr with a screwdriver and press brake pedal at same...

I can only add that you should check your Brakelights to see if they are working. You may have worked on the wrong part.

They use a safety switch usually on the Brake pedal lever and it unlocks the circuit. If you do not get a Brakelight signal, the gearshift will stay in Park.

This interlock is a Trilogy: Brakes, gearshift, and Ignition switch. They are adjusted or "timed" to free up or lock when all 3 are in sync. The ignition switch is suppose to give you trouble when the other items are malfunctioning.

Check your Brakelights, then fix or align that switch, and then you may have to try to align what you fooled with.

Please rate my info.

Tail lights stay on with ignition off

The brakelight switch is located somewhere on your brake pedal arm. On many cars, there is a small rubber piece that the brakelight switch makes contact with. If that piece of rubber falls off the tail lights will stay on all the time. Look around in your floorboard for pieces of rubber or plastic. You can find another piece of rubber and glue it on if this happens. Or if the one that fell off is intact just glue it back on with superglue.

Or the brakelight switch could be stuck.

I have a 1997 Nissan Pathfinder. Tonight I went out to a movie and upon exiting my vehicle noticed my brake lights were on. I opened my door and pulled back on the brake pedal, for a second they turned off...

Climb under the dash and look on the back of the brake pedal, brakelight switch will be on the back of the brake pedal arm halfway up the arm.

Look around in the floorboard and look for some fragments of rubber. If you see some fragments of rubber then the little piece of rubber that is attached to the back of the brake arm has probably fallen off. If the rubber piece breaks and falls off then the brakelight switch will stay on because it will be touching bare metal and grounding the switch making it stay on all the time.

And that seems to make sense because when you pulled back on the pedal the brakelights went
off. Because you pulled the pedal back until it was not making contact with the switch anymore.

And the tach problem is unrelated. And im not sure about whats wrong with the tachometer. But I would suspect the vehicle speed sensor is faulty.

My 95 toyota camry brake light stays on

Ive got a 92 Tercel. Had this same problem. Look around on the floorboard of your car. Look for a small rubber disc, or broken up pieces of the rubber disc.

If you see the pieces or whole hard rubber thing on the floor, then the rubber disc that goes at the point where the brakelight switch touches the back of the brake pedal has fallen off.

When that disc falls off the brakelight switch touches bare metal, and the switch is grounded which makes it stay on all the time.

Climb under the dash with a flashlight and look at the back of the brake pedal. Find the brakelight switch, look at the point where the switch contacts the pedal. See if the rubber disc is missing. If it
is missing find a small piece of rubber to superglue on the spot where the switch makes contact.

If the disc is there the brakelight switch is probably stuck. If its stuck you will see a gap between
the switch contact and the brake pedal. If its stuck get a replacement brakelight switch from an
auto parts store.

You have a brake light switch on your brake pedal. First check to see that the switch is closing when the pedal is off. Then check your light bulbs and fuses for the tail lights.
