1995 Volvo 855T-Stuck in Park

Often, I can't shift out of park without using shift override switch. When this happens, the headlights and turn signals don't work.
I suspect the ignition switch. How much is this and is it a DIY repair?

Your problem is at your key. The switch in the steering colmb is cracked or worn out. When it happens, try rotating the key counter clockwise just a little bit and watch everything start to work.
Good Luck,
Tim

2005 Hyundai accent gear shift stuck in park after brake failure


Make sure the brake lights are coming on if not the release solenoid that unlocks park gets no power and will not release the shifter from park position. Also check the owner's manual for a possible way to override the solenoid lock.

Shifter interlock


what car, you never said? NOR YEAR?
park lock out feature;. its broken , they do that. (BTSI system)
got A/T? or M/T both auto and stick shift have lockout.

no car/year, you get the generic answer.
there is a park lockout DEFEATER on most cars, (never on new cars,due to federal bs)

on the shift console, see the defeat device.
the operators guide covers this. its for EMERGENCIES.
pick one.
http://justgivemethedamnmanual.com/jeep/

the A/T box,
Brakes + handle button press, unlocks BTSI

on 2005 and up , no bypass
if the key gets locked too, that tells you what is bad , on newer jeeps
on newer jeeps read this
http://www.lostjeeps.com/forum/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=366251

this feature (pain) has many failure points.
any cable that jams, there are 2 , one to tranny or ignition
switch. and the brake solenoid unlocker in shift handle.
and the button, to unluck shifter, brake switch (no brake lights/)
to diagnosis it is easy , dismantle the console at shifter
then disconnect cables to find if one is stuck, (easy huh?)
and defeat the solenoid, by hand or 12v applied. and check the button
that it does in fact release.
NOT PARK LOCKOUT: (for if not on flat ground?)
reason 2 , driver, parked on a hill with tire to curb and did so
not setting brakes first (or bad ebrake ) and now the tranny parking
pawl is jammed , opps. so wiggle the steering and wiggle shifter,
or have some one push car forward (parked up hill on right) to release
parking pawl. (or gorilla it, ask bubba to muscle it out of park.)
if down hill , well, you get the idea..... pain.. gotta love A/Ts not.
Folks in Sanfranciso, just roll eyes at you, new in town>?

now the grand cherroke,, why not post car model, and year, dang.

quote 2010 oper guide, get one.
Brake/Transmission Interlock Manual Override Your vehicle may be equipped with a shift lock manual override. The manual override may be used in the event that the shift lever should fail to move from PARK with the ignition switch in the ON position and the brake pedal pressed. To operate the shift lock manual override, perform the following steps: 1. Turn the ignition switch to the ON position without starting the engine. 2. Firmly set the parking brake. 3. Using a flat-bladed screwdriver, carefully remove the shift lock manual override cover, which is located on the PRNDL bezel. 4. Press and maintain firm pressure on the brake pedal. 5. Using the screwdriver, reach into the manual override opening. Press and hold the shift lock lever down. Interlock Manual Override end quote.
no all jeeps have this,

Automatic Transmission Gear shifter stuck in park


Your front wheels might be turned to the right or left "binding" the suspension and actually holding the transmission in park. Try pulling the steering wheel with one hand so it is loose a bit as if you are turning the car while sitting still and then shift out of park. Some cars have a 'shift lock override' button also. This allows you to shift out of park without a key.

Looking for Brake-shift interlock override


Unable to shift out of park on very hot days in my Mazda6 2003, was becoming a serious problem this summer.....there is no override button/key on this model. I had it to the Mazda dealership five times before the problem was corrected! Initially the wrong diagnosis was made and replacement of something connected to the brake did not correct the problem. Finally, the shifter was replace and the problem was solved. $$$ Seems like there have been many different electrical problems with this model....some under warranty, some not. I will not ever buy another Madza.......there is no excuse to design a car without an override button or key! ( It was scary to be stuck on sweltering hot days not being able to get out of park.....had I ever had my grand babies with me when this happened, I would have been desperate.)

On my 1995 Geo tracker wich is a automatic. Wont shift.stuck in park


You need to find the shift lock override. There is usually a small plastic cover or hole somewhere near the shifter. Remove the cover and insert a thin screwdriver into the hole, depressing the lock override, while shifting it out of park. If this works then the soleniod at the shifter or the switch at the brake pedal is bad. Yes the vehicle will start in Nuetral.

There is a brake switch located underneath the drivers side on the back of the brake pedal if this is failing you will not be able to shift from park without the shift override.

1995 volvo 960 stuck in winter mode


Where roy might have a possible source, it is most likely the park neutral switch which has started to fail. This is indicated by the shift arrow flashing on the dash. Replacement of this component is relatively difficult without a lift

1999 Volvo S80 stuck in park


see my friend easy fix,the problem you are having is a wire problem that locks or unlocks the shifter from the park potition and also unlocks the key from the ignition switch is just getting stuck inside the ignition switch, so more likely needs lubrication you can do it yourself or have a machanic do it
for you,maybe replace it with a new one( wich i dont think is nesesary) take it out clean it, put new grease and it should be good to go, good luck.This wire is conected to the ignition switch, on the right side and can be pulled out with your hand.
