In auto-transmission vehicles, it is a switch activated (off the brake) solenoid that releases the shifter. In your case the solenoid switch might have a loose connection or it might be partly damaged, so even after releasing the brake you have to wait for sometime to get the solenoid switch to get working, and thus a delay in switching gears. (If the solenoid switch works properly, it will get instantly activated on releasing the brake). So I recommend to check the loose connection of the solenoid, if not it needs to be replaced. If the delay is only marginal, then you can go with this solenoid without replacement. There is no other harm to the vehicle.

The solenoid switch might look like this :

    I am sorry, but I don't know the position of solenoid switch. I think it is in the engine compartment and not under the brakes. It might be a little expensive.

When I turn the ignition switch to start the vehicle I often cannot shift the stick shift out of Park. If I immediately try to switch gears after starting the engine it usually works but if I leave it more...


ok the safety feature on an auto gearbox is that the gear select has a solinoid lock on the shift & you norm have to start engine first before you can select drive now if the engine is running & not allowing you to select a drive then for some reason the solinoid is losing its signal or going faulty or even the shaft needing a little lube IE: wd40 now my volvo won't even allow me to take the key out untill its in park hope this helps

Gear shift locked in park


Try setting your parking brake before you put the gear selector in park. Then put it in drive before you take the parking brake off to see it it keeps the load off the transmission when your parking on a steep incline or decline.

03 navigator gear shift gets stuck in the parked postion and wont shift to drive what's wrong?


The switch on the brake master cylinder is FAMOUS for shorting out. Unplug it and find the blown fuse. In the fuse box under the hood, fuse 1.5 Your truck may be under a recall for that switch, call the dealer with your VIN number and see if it qualifies.

A safety feature on your car is that it will not shift out of "park" if you are not applying the brakes . Make sure your doing that while trying to shift out of park .
