see my friend easy fix,the problem you are having is a wire problem that locks or unlocks the shifter from the park potition and also unlocks the key from the ignition switch is just getting stuck inside the ignition switch, so more likely needs lubrication you can do it yourself or have a machanic do it
for you,maybe replace it with a new one( wich i dont think is nesesary) take it out clean it, put new grease and it should be good to go, good luck.This wire is conected to the ignition switch, on the right side and can be pulled out with your hand.

SOURCE: 2006 Nissan X Trail Gear Shift Stuck in Park.

This is not a permanent fix, but you'll be able to shift and drive...this is a "safety feature" when you're break lights aren't working...it may be a fuse issue, i found that didn't help either.

How to drive it while it's "broken" On the top left of your gear shift is circle that looks like a button that is only 3/4 there...see picture (it's circled in red)

pry that off with a key or something... now restart your car, push on the break and at the same time insert a key or something into the now open hole...while pushing down use the other key to shift into reverse. You will need to do the same thing to shift back into park.

Good heavens that is the most inneficient safety feature I've ever heard of. How about instead of leaving the car immoble and keeping you in a scetchy neihborhood to get mugged they just "invent" a warning light notification. grr

The interlock solenoid is provide with power by the Transmission control module (tcm) when the brake pedal is applied3f09359.jpg and then grounded by the gear selector switch in park. If you access the connector to the tcm, you can check to see if it's getting a ground signal and check the solenoid. Pull the harness connector off the tcm and apply 12v to the harness connector pin that leads to the white wire with a green stripe as seen in the diagram. If the solenoid clicks, you may have a bad tcm. If the solenoid does not click, you may have a bad solenoid, or bad selector switch. The tcm is under the front passenger footwell.

Can't shift gear


check the fuse for your brake lights, check your brake light switch. If the brake lights don't go on your car will not shift out of park. The shifter should have an override button. look for an access hole (cover) near the shifter, pop the cover off and push a pencil down there to shift. check your owners manual for specific information on the use of the override button

I have a 99 Lexus gs 300 and today the gear shift got stuck in drive i finally forced it into park and then i couldnt get it in gear again. The break lights work and the tow truck driver shoved a screw...


It's probably a problem with the shift lock system . This is a safety feature that won't allow you to shift from park into a gear unless your foot is pushing on the brake pedal . Brake switch sends a B+ voltage to a module (maybe) ,the module then energize's a locking solenoid ,to unlock the shifter . Google lexus shifter interlock .

What is the button on the right side of the shifter counsel for?


That could be a shift lock release button. Your car wont shift out of park unless you step on the brake, that button is an override in case you need to get the car out of park and the shift lock solenoid isnt working.
