Could be the lock solenoid, or a lack of power from the brake switch.

Well the stuck in park problem may be the brake switch or the shift lock solenoid, and the flickering dash lights may be a wiring problem.

Astro van won't shift into gear


My van wouldn't shift from park into gear in the parking lot at work. I had to have it towed. They replace the switch that is spring-loaded to the brake pedal. When you press down on the pedal, that switch pops out and allows you to shift gears. In this case, the spring didn't release so the van wouldn't shift out of park. They replaced the part but I still had the same problem (did they really replace it?). I took the part out, sprayed with WD40 and it's been working great for years.

Wont shift out of park, brake lights dont work


your brake switch is broken, its on the top of brake peddle. It wont shift from park because you need to press brake to shift from park and with the switch not working it doesn't know your pressing the brake. check connection on switch if its fine you need to replace.

Does the speedometer work ?

Can,t move the gear shift from drive to park it only goes from drive to netraul


Sounds like the linkage may be broken and it wont allow you to shift into
park. You might try pressing on the brake before putting it into Park,
sometimes the engine pushes the van forward and it wont go into Park.

My 2000 MPV gets stuck in park. The parking gear will not light up to indicate the van is in park. Once the van is running for about 20 mins or more the parking gear light will come on and I am able to...


it sounds like a shift lock solinoid ....this prevents the car from being shifted out of park when ur foot is not on the brake....u will have to bring this to a repair shop since the faulty part is located inside the paneling where ur shifter handle is

96 plymouth grand voyager is stuck on park what does that mean?


Your problem might be with the brake light switch. This switch is under the brake pedal, and when the pedal is pressed, it lets you shift your van out of park. This switch also activates the brake lights when you press the brake pedal. Try checking if your brake lights work. These switches are inexpensive, and very easy to replace.

Wont shift gears.


Look under the dash at the switch by your brake pedal. This switch must work for the gearshift to come out of Park. It is also the reason your brake lights do not work.

There is an electric lockout on the gearshift and the power comes from the brake light switch. This is how the van knows you have your foot on the brake.
The switch may be broke or simply loose and not making contact.
