Question about Chevrolet TrailBlazer

1 Answer

I start the 02 trailblazer and press the brake...but it won't let me move the gear out of park. I can usually hear a clicking noise when I press on the brake and that releases the shifter but I don't hear that now. So when i press the button on the shifter, it won't go in and that won't let the vehicle shift out of park? Help??

    That happened to me while I was at the gas station. There is a silver round button that will release the gear shift out of park. You have to take off the middle console to see it. It is facing the passenger side of the gear shift. Press the button the same time as you press down on the gear shift and it will release. But as soon as you put it in park it will lock again, The message is not getting to the computer from the brake to the gear shift, it is a defense mechanism from children and sometimes it gets stuck. Your gonna need to take it to the shop to get it repaired. It shouldn't cost much.

Gears won't change. Can anybody provide some useful advice. ?


Automatics have a gear shift safety solenoid that locks the gearshift/transmission in park unless the brake pedal is depressed. This is to prevent people from dropping into a gear from park and rolling into traffic or backing up over someone unexpectedly. When you press the brake pedal you should be able to hear a clicking sound coming from under the gear shift lever. If you dont hear the sound then the solenoid may need to be replaced. The other possibility is needing to replace the brake pedal position switch (usually attached to the pedal assembly or behind the brake pedal assembly) which tells the shifter solenoid to activate when the pedal is depressed.

Anti shift gear car wont come out of park


follow the steps . God bless you
Instructions
    • 1 Start the engine. Press firmly on the brake while wiggling the shifter from side to side.
    • 2 Remove the console surrounding the shifter. It is usually very easy although you may need to use the screwdriver to lift an edge or remove a clip
    • 3 Look inside the shifter mechanism for any sticky substance. Often when drinks are spilled on the console they seep down into the shifter mechanism and make the interlock solenoid sticky, meaning that it sticks closed when you press the brake and the car won't come out of park.
    • 4 Remove any sticky substance with the alcohol. Start the engine, press the brake and try to move the shifter out of park. If it still does not move then there may be another issue with the interlock.
    • 5 Examine the shifter for a release button that will allow you to move the vehicle out of park so it can be taken to a repair shop. It is usually hidden under a small flap or cover that will have to be lifted with a small screwdriver.

My car will not go into gear


Automatic or manual? If it is an automatic does and fairly new, do you hear a clicking when pressing on the brake pedal? A lot of GM cars require you press the brake to shift out of park. If you don't hear it click then the solenoid could be bad or bad fuse etc. that lets it shift from park. It would be helpful in the future if you would mention the year and make of the vehicle you want to try to fix.

2005 navigator gear shift click.when i press on the brake and the car is in park i hear a click!


hi.
this is correct and perfectly normal. you may notice the same in neutral

it is a safety catch operated when you press the brakes, and it is supposed to lock the selector in the park position ( and neutral on most cars) until the brakes are pressed.
if you try to move the selector out of park (or neutral) with the engine running, and the brakes OFF, you should not be able to move the selector.

When i have the key on in the park position and i hit the brake i hear a clicking noise in the gear is that normal


Yes that clicking noise is a solenoid allowing you to put your vehicle in gear. Try to gently put car in gear without stepping on brake, it shouldn't go, that solenoid is a safety item making sure you have brakes your engaged before moving.

My husband turned off our Chevy Trailblazer without putting it in gear and now it won''t start and the gear shift is lock up. What do you do to fix it????


first make sure battery isn't dead because if he cut it off in gear then the switch couldn't cut the power off and it'll run the battery down and there is a electrical solenoid that allows the shifter to move if theres no voltage than the shifter want go into park and the ignition switch want turn off.
