You should apply the parking brake on all vehicles,
when you stop & before you let off the foot brake.
I suspect you have a broken parking pawl in the trans
Remove the trans pan & put in park, to check it out
Maybe some adjustment on linkage or worn out items
that can be resolved, but not likely able to buy parts any more,
have to find a fix & do yourself

I have a 1995 gmc jimmy that will not go into park. It will go in all other gears and runs fine, You have to start it in Netural, does anyone know what is wrong????? please email me at...

Sounds like the linkage is bent or Way out of alignment, Also you do have plastic Bushing for the linkage to pivot on, Maybe you crack half off and the other half fell off.. If this is not your problem WE need a little more info, When did this start? Did you run over a curb? Anything that may relate to this problem

How do you adjust the shift cable on a 1995 gmc jimmy, wont go into reverse or park.

On the 1995 Jimmy, the shift cable can come loose on the mount on the side of the transmission where the cable meets the trans. When it slips, the alignment goes off and causes the driver to not be able to put the trans into park. If you take a long stick you can push the shift arm on the trans to the park position and your trans will go into park.....what you (and I) really need to know is how to take the shift cable mount apart and reset it.

My 1999 gmc jimmy gear shifter is hard to move out of park........what is the problem?

check stop light, if they are not working the vehicle will shift out in PARK. check the fuse.
check the shifting mechanism for loose change and other that might stuck between gears and baseplate.
and safety switch where you press the brake and safety interlock have gone bad.

My gmc jimmy gets stuck in park sometimes and to get it out I have to sit there and miss with it for a while does anyone know what the problem might be?

The gear selector lock may be hanging up or an interment electrical problem. The gear selector lock is so you can't pull it out of park without the key in the run position and your foot on the brake acts as a safety device so you don't accidently pull shifter out of park or kids playing and pull it out of park and also helps for anti-theft device. The proper name for this is SHIFT INTERLOCK SYSTEM. There is no common problems with this system but I have replaced a couple solenoids but not all on GMC's the other item I would think would be more common is the brake switch for this system.
