When you put the car in park, a switch on the shift lever mechanism is depressed and tells the computer the mechanism is in park. Either the switch has gone bad or the linkage and switch have worn loose and are not making proper contact. In either case, replacing the switch will solve the problem.

Dash lights


Most of the dash lights are powered thru the tail lamp relay along with the outside parking lights. There may be a solid state controller that provides the ground circuit and the dimming control.
You may need a wiring diagram or shop manual to troubleshoot the circuits.

My suv won't shift gears what can i do?


if the shifter is moving then it is probably your trans. but if the shifter is not moving from the park possition (if it is an automatic) check to see if brake lights are coming on if not check fuse for brake lights,it also controls your shift lock.try turning key to possition before lights come on dash board and moving shifter into nuetral pos. then start car and put into gear give that a try, if it does the shift lock isn`t working.

When i push on my brake my dash lights and park lights and tail lights come on at the same time


The likely cause is a short in one of the brake light sockets feeding power back into the parking lights. Check both brake light sockets for heat damage. If no damage, remove the brake light bulbs one at a time to see if the problem is in the bulb or how it is fitting into the socket. If that isn't the problem, check the wiring behind the socket for a short between the wires.

check the parking light fuse or taillight fuse to make sure it has not blown. replace it if it has blown and see if the lights work or if the fuse blows again. if it blows when you turn the lights on then you have a short circuit that needs repaired. if the fuses are good ,then most likely the headlight switch is bad not allowing the taillights or dash lights to work.

I have a buick park ave 1999 with a malfunction


This is a problem in the circuit that controls the warning light on your dash. I am not sure why you would have failed emissions for this, I would call your BMV and find out.
