Hi Robert, I'm glad to help!

Robert on Chrysler vehicles. Sometimes its not the power or ground or even the release solenoid. Most of the time its the mechanical mechanism inside the shifter itself. I would call the dealer and see if they have problems with the shifter not coming out of park. The other thing I'd like to see you check is: When you unplug the cable from the shifter can you manually shift gears. Hope this helps and have an awesome day Robert.

SOURCE: Brake Light Doesn't

Yes. Look on the brake pedal lever under the dask. When the brake pedal is pressed the switch is engaged. This is easy enough to replace. If you see two switches, the other one is probably a switch to disable the cruise control.

SOURCE: 2005 Lincoln Navigator. Message says to Check

Most likely the problem you are experiencing with the park assist is a fault in one of the sensors mounted in the rear bumper. I would not consider it to be a major fix, however there will be a few hours labor involved as the bumper cover needs to be removed to replace the sensors.

SOURCE: i have a 2005 navigator the shifter is stuck in

Its a sensor under the brake. You can actually pull the shifter with a little force and it will go into gear. It will cost about $400 at a good garage. Looking at $600 and more at dealer. When you force it into gear, you are not hurting the transmission, just over riding the sensor. Your "D" will not light up on the dash or at the shifter untiol you fix it.

SOURCE: does a 2005 lincoln navigator air ride system

Yes, to a point. It also depends on if you have it in 2 wheel or 4 wheel drive. The system jacks up the vehicle higher in 4x4 for clearance.

The suspension is suppose to drop when you park to make it easier to get in and out and to load the rear cargo area. You will therefore always have the suspension pump go on when you first start the vehicle. Your vehicle should set the same as other Navigators. If your vehicle looks like it has 4 flat tires, then that is too much.

You have a longer warranty with a Lincoln if you are still concerned about it.

Brake lights were on continuously.changed brake switch now the wont work at all and stuck in park


The brake switch is probably mis-adjusted. If it does not activate when the brake pedal is depressed, the brake lights will not light and the gear shift release solenoid will not activate. That, or the wiring harness is not connected properly to the switch or is damaged.

Hard to go from park to drive


You need to check the brake circuit with a meter.
The brake switch signals the shift lock solenoid to release.
It could be the brake switch, or the solenoid, or a bad connection.
You should be able to turn the key switch to unlock but not on, and shift out of park.

My 2005 nissan altima won't change from park when crunk up. what could be the problem?


Usually a sign of a faulty brake light switch or lock solenoid on the shifter. You may be able to get the shifter out of park by turning the key to the unlock position but not "on".
There may be a button you can push next to the shifter to unlock in an emergency. Check your owners manual.

Unable to take out of park position


Do the brake light work? No brake lights and it won't shift out of park. Check your fuses and check for loose wires. Check your brake light switch. If that has failed, you won't be able to get out of park. The other one if the shift lock solenoid which is in the shifter assembly. The brake shift interlock switch prevents the car being shifted from park unless the brake pedal is depressed. Try to apply power/ground to the proper wires & see if it will activate.. If it does, then the problem is between the brake light switch & that solenoid. Could be the wires or the switch.Make sure the shifter cable is still held down in place at the shifter assembly & under the hood. It is the interlock switch that you hear/feel clicking.It is for the prior generation but may still apply.

Good Luck and hopefully you soon will be on the road again...;-)

Gear lever stuck in park


Frist thing is to make sure the brake lights are working as the shifter release works off the brake light switch power, if the brake lights dont work then check the fuses and if the fuses are good then you will need to check the brake light switch, this switch is located on the top of the pedal arm, if the brake lights work then you will need to check the release solenoid on the shifter, this is where i would start. good day.

2004 Volvo s60 awd t 'stuck in park'


Check your brake lights and see if they are working. The solenoid in the shifter is energized by you stepping on the brake. If your break lights do not work... your stuck in park. This can be caused by a bad brake light switch located above your brake pedal or.... a blown hazard / brake light fuse. Check them first.....

Cannot shift out of park without using the over ride button under the center console. What is causing this?


Check fuses could be blown fuse. Or another possibility could be brake pedal switch. Brake pedal must be depressed to release shifter from park. Also try and check voltage at solenoid that releases the shifter from park. The solenoid should be located under the shifter, power should only be there when brake is depressed. If voltage is not present with or with out brake depressed than check fuse and switches before solenoid. If voltage is present with brake depressed and no action occurs at the solenoid than that definitely means it is bad. hope you get it fixed..

Dodge charger will not shift out of park 2006


there is a solenoid that is operated when you put your foot on the brake to shift out of park, if the solenoid doesnt recieve power than either you have no power to the switch on the brake pedal to activate the switch (check fuses) or the solenoid itself has gone bad, the solenoid is usually right next to where the shifter is located

2000 Taurus starts just fine. Transmission stuck in park. Cannot shift. I do have foot on brakes.


When you push on the brake pedal with the ignition key in the run position, do you here or feel a clicking noise at the shifter?

There are also (2) fuses in the interior fuse box ( #17 and #32) that must be checked to make sure they are not blown. If the fuses are good, I would suspect either the brake switch or shift interlock solenoid.

The fuse supplies ignition voltage to the brake switch, when the brake is applied, the switch closes and voltage travels to the shift interlock solenoid. The solenoid is activated and the shift lever is unlocked.

So, it may be one of several things causing the problem.
1) blown fuse.
2) brake switch defective
3) shift inter lock solenoid defective.
4) wiring harness or connector problem.
