I had the same problem. A penny got into the console, and jammed the linkage to go into park. after the penny was removed, it was fine.

It could be a couple of things. The first thing i would check is to make sure the brake lights work. The shift interlock requires a signal from the brake light switch to allow the shifter to move. If the switch dosn't work the shifter will be stuck in park.

There should be an shift interlock override somewhere near the shifter for situations such as this. Look in your owners manual for a more detailed location and instructions on using the override.

I was driving and when I when to put my chevy impala 2005 in park my gear broke, now my keays are stuck in the engine and my car won't start


Is the shifter broke? Is the transaxle in park? You should be able manually shift the transaxle to get it in park position at the linkage on transaxle. You need to know what your doing, no offense. Even after that, there is the shift interlock system you have to deal with. I can't tell what is broken?

New 1969 c4 auto transmission has park but no reverse or netural


Is it possible the transmission was not made for a Mustang ?
With the shifter on the floor, the linkage would be different than a car with the shifter on the column.
Have you contacted the company ?

Do you have brake lights? The brake switch on the pedal has to work to send a signal to a solenoid at the shifter to release park.

2005 Dodge Magnum STX is stuck in park. Brake lights work, I can feel shift knob loosen but not disengage from park. Do you think it might be part of "the cup plug that retains the park pawl anchor shaft"...


The BTSI (Brake Transmission Shift Interlock) has a small spring retainer on the park safety. A small plastic tab breaks & releases the spring. This requires the shifter to be disassembled in order to be repaired (unless yours is under warranty).

Repaired mine Sunday May 1st and can provide detailed instructions if desired.

If you are lucky, your brake interlock is the only problem. There is a bypass switch located beside the gear selector. Remove the small "cubby" bin located next to the gear shift by simply lifting up to remove. You will note a small access port and a pink button contained therein. Press the pink button to override the brake interlock.

If you still cannot shift into park, then the shifter must be removed for the spring repair. Even if yours is still under warranty, you will get another shifter that will eventually fail due to poor engineering.

Please let me know if you would like my assistance.

Will Not start in Park


The safety netural switch is loose there is a nut on the shift rail, if it is tight then the safety netural switch is bad and is held on with two bolts and takes 20 miutes to remove replace and adjust.

2008 Chevy Impala transmission shift lever locked up...


I had this problem and its common on the impala. There is a manual release button under the shifter trim. Remove the trim and look down and on the passenger side you will see a silver button near the bottom. With the shifter in park push in the button and this will release the shifter. You can drive the car as long as you don't put it back in park. If you do just push in the button and release it again. My problem was a broken wire in the shifter cable. You won't find this release button in the owners manual. After mine was repaired I drilled a inch and one half hole in the passenger side of the console opposite the level of the button in case I had future problems. Just reach in with your finger and push in the button to release the shifter.

Shifter stuck in park!


you have to take off the plastic all around the gear shifter. You can wedge a screw driver carefully around the edges and pry the plastic off then there is a screw on the shifter take that off and slide the top off and then take off the rubber until the whole shifter is exposed then you will see in the cavity on the right side a little metal round tab on a spring that you have to push in with a screw driver and it will release the shifter. Good luck
