Could be the brake switch or the park lock solenoid.
The brake pedal sends a signal to the soleniod, or interrupts power to the solenoid when depressed.
Something could also be binding in the shift linkage.

Shifter well not come out of park when foot on bark.


There's an "interlock" that prevents you from moving the shifter out of park when you don't have your foot on the brake. If the brake light switch isn't working, then you won't be able to pull the shifter out of park. Also, if you park on a hill, and let the car roll while it's in park, it can be very hard to pull it out of park. Set the parking brake before letting off the brake when putting into park.

Can,t locate hand brake for toyota avalon automatic


Automatics do not have a hand brake. Only standard transmission vehicles have hand brakes.

Automatics have a parking brake, to be used on hills.

Take a look at this image;

Down at the foot pedals, the one on the far left side is the parking brake. If you don't know this, then you probably shouldn't be driving. Take a taxi or a bus instead. You're dangerous!!

1992 mercury xr-7, shifter is hung up in park, I believe you have to have your foot on the brake to disenage. with my foot on brake pedal botton on shifter will not press in to move shifter out of park....


Hello, Check out the top part of your brake pedal lever. The switch that makes the shifter release can be broken or knocked out of position. You will notice the Brake lights are probably not working either. Once you get the brake lights to work, the shifter should work.

Engine problem


Turn the key to ON, put your foot on the brake and move shifter to N. Try and start it. If nothing then you probably have a bad starter.

Problems starting


sounds like you have a bad ground fault switch( safty switch). if you move the shifter around slightly while in park and have someone turn the switch will it start? that would indicate a short or a misalignment. Be sure to keep you foot on the brake anf have the parking brake set while trouble shooting. let me know MrRodneyLong@gmail.com
