If you mean the car wont shift into gear at all, it might be a fuse. My fuse went out and I could not put it into gear.... I found a fuse in the cab fuse box blown. The fuse blew again so I replaced it with one slightly heavier and its been fine for years. Hope this helps.

1991 Cadillac 409 engine won't shift out of Park


Lets start by checking your brake light switch.
Your car has a switch on the brake pedal that not only makes the brake lights come on, but also tells the transmission it can shift out of park.
This really may be 2 separate switches, but should be under the dashboard and both should "open" when you push the brake pedal down.
Take a good flashlight and look.
The switches are small, about the size of your thumb, and both should have 2 wires attached to them.
Be blessed.

98 Oldsmobile intrigue gear shift stuck in park Does not stick all the time. Can be moved out of gear by using strength to move it. help please. Thank you


Donot use strength for the shifter, make sure the brake light come on when brake padle is pressed down, if not then change the brake light switch. The shifter is powered through the brake light switch.

Shift lever lock won't release when brake pedal is


do the brake lights work? most of the time the problem is a broken wire at the brake light switch under the dash on the brake pedal. the ECM does not see the signal from the switch so it won't allow the car to shift from park.

GEAR SHIFT STUCK IN PARK HAVE NO BRAKE LIGHTS


check the fuses as if the brake light fuse is blown it won`t allow the shifter to move out of park.it has a shift interlock system so the gear shift won`t accidentally be moved out of park by mistake.

My 2000 lincoln town car is stuck in park...won't switch over to drive....what do I do???


The brake must be applied before you can shift out of park.There is a switch under the dash at the top of the brake pedal that is activated when you press the brake pedal. I've had the wires come off the switch on my lincoln.

Gear shift has locked up


sounds like brake shift interlock solenoid is bad. try doing this emergency bypass. Turn key to off position, no lights on cluster. step on brake, pull shifter out of park to neutral. start car & drive away without putting it in park. see owner manul for better description.
