SOURCE: 2005, 300c will not shift out of park

Inside the shifter is a second locking mechanism that breaks where the spring is attached. I learned the hard way. Our car is out of warranty and it broke, so not have the time to research it let the dealer fix it. $500 later and now I know what happened. Several people have fixed it them selves by taking the shifter apart and using wire to connect the spring back to the plastic piece. I checked and the shifter on moparpartsamerica.com has the parts for either $65 for the four speed shifterr or $119 for the 5 speed. The next time I will fix it myself.

SOURCE: 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.)

How to disengage shift interlock when shifter stuck at P


Info on the shift interlock is usually found in the owners manual. If the solenoid that locks the shifter into park fails or the switch that activates it (probably located on the brake pedal since you have to step on the brake to select a drive gear) fails there is usually a way to manually override the system. Your owners manual should have that information.

Or ...do some sleuthing on line with a search engine. Just about guaranteed you are not the only Range Rover owner on the planet this has happened to.

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.

Cannot locate shift interlock override


All vehicles should have your foot on the brake prior to shifting into gear from park. This could cause problems to your vehicle or even injure should this device be removed. Be responsible and use the brake pedal prior to shifting vehicle into gear. Heck, the vehicle is 22 years old.

Gear stick stuck in Park and will not move


The shift interlock solenoid is likely failed.
If you do not hear a click when you put your foot on the brake (and the brake lights illuminate) look in your manual for the location of the shift interlock override button. It is usually behind a removeable panel near the shifter.

Stick a pen inside and push the button to temporarily override the solenoid.

Car won't shift out of park with brake pedal down dodge stratus 2005


The brake/shifter interlock switch is bad. You can manually override the switch. Your owner's manual should have instructions on overriding the switch.
