Sounds like the shift lock solenoid has failed, or there is a short in the circuit.

My truck used to get stuck in park but now its permanently stuck in park and will not shift.


Try gently turning the wheel left or right as you try to shift. Truck starts ok I assume. Also apply brake. Maybe the switch thT tells it the brake is pushed is bad

My 1997 GMC Sonoma SLS is stuck in park. I believe it is due to a failed stop light switch. Where is that switch located and how do I replace it. How do I by-pass that switch to get the truck out of...


The brake lamp switch is located on the brake pedal assembly under the dash. (See Diagram)

To move the vehicle, try this:

1. Turn the key to OFF.
2. Apply and hold the brake until the end of Step 4.
3. Shift the transmission to NEUTRAL (N).
4. Start the vehicle and then shift to the drive gear

My truck will not go into gear from Park position.


In the early 90's, a safety feature was added to keep people from shifting out of park without having their brakes on. This feature runs through the brake lights (in Fords, at least.) I would bet your brake lights don't work, and if they don't then that would be why you're stuck in Park

When I start the car, I can't put the car in shift mode. Unless I am on a slight incline and put my emergency brake on to roll. What is the problem and how much will it cost me to fix?


Can't shift out of park because I've parked on a slight hill and my car has backed up slightly jaming the parking pawl in the automatic transmission after I have shifted into park but before I have set the parking brake. This is a complaint that Ford owners have had for years. Try this proceedure to see if this solves you problem and best of all it's Free. 1st when you park develop the habit of; while still having the foot brake down apply the park brake firmly first and then shift into park and then release the foot brake. Remember it is important to apply park brake with enough force to prevent the vehicle from rolling. What happens is in the rear of an automatic transmission there is a coarse gear that has a lever that engages this larger gear and when you shift into park range this lever goes into one of the spaces in the larger gear and stops the car from rolling. If the car starts to roll it can Jam the lever against the gear and make it difficult to shift out of park. By using the procedure I've outlined it prevents the lever OR Pawl from being jambed into the larger park gear. Try to make this a habit and you shouldn't have anymore problems.

I can't get my Gear Shift our of Park. The engine


Common problem.

In future, when on put it in park only AFTER the handbrake is applied. Ideally, foot brake, shift to N, apply handbrake, release foot brake, shift to park.

If the incline isn't steep have someone push car uphill while you gently move gearshift shift out of park. If its a steep hill, call a tow truck and move to a level surface. The parking pawl in the transmission becomes groved over time (and sticks) unless you use the handbreak as described.
