Question about 1991 Mazda MPV

2 Answers

I have a 1991 mazda mpv which has been sitting for a while. The battery is dead on it currently and has been for a bit. My problem is that I can't shift it out of park into neutral to be able to push the van into a new parking spot. I put the key in, switch it over to the on position and step on the brake but it won't do anything. I've run into this problem once before but can't remember how to fix it. Help please... is there an emergency release switch somewhere?

On my MPV (MY 2000) it was on top of the steering column. There's a little square cap of plastic that you pry off with a screwdriver. Inside there is a large lever that you depress (with the screwdriver) and then you can shift out of park without power. See owner's manual, pg 5:11 (Shift-lock override).

There should be a manual release button under the steering wheel on the right side in the opening of the plastic trim.

I want to locate the starter motor on 1991 mazda mpv to check for possible connection problems


The starter motor on the MPV is located on the underside of the engine on the passenger side. If your MPV is four wheel drive it will be virtually impossible to see even if you are lying on your back under the vehicle. If you plan to take it out let me know as I have some experience with this situation.
