SOURCE: gear shifter is stuck in park 2008 impala

The system is designed so that if the brake pedal is not depressed during the shift out of park the lock solenoid will not disengage the park lock pin. So the first thing to do is check and verify the brake lights work.

My 2008 Chevy impala loses all power to dash panel and will not start or come on at all. Turn key on and everything dies checked battery .help


I don't believe it has anything to do with the brakes or shifter system. You either are losing contact with the battery or you have a dead short that is shutting it down. Could be the ignition switch itself.

Went to start my car, wouldn't start, key was stuck, wouldn't shift, battery wasn't working, heard a clicking noise in the door, radio flashed once, console light up several times. Help! ...


The most commonly diagnosed component is the shifter and/or shifter solenoid on your Impala.
GM issued a bulletin on this problem. Contact your dealer, they are aware of the problem and you could be covered under warranty. Below is a copy of the bulletin.

My 2008 Chevy Impala's gear shifter button is not releasing when put into park so the key will not come out of the ignition and causes the battery to die. Car engine will shut off but power stays on.


Take a little WD-40 and spray beside the button with the straw. Work it back and forth the best you can to include a few smacks on the shifter itself. This will allow the lubricant to travel down the shaft of the shifter also. This should take care of it. Let me know.

I have a 2000 impala, which a friend of mine had my shifter cable installed. And now its stuck in second gear. The shifter goes up and down but it's not catching which leaves it stuck in second gear!...


It sounds like the shifter cable has popped loose.  You should be able to see the shifter cable on the transmission.  See if it is disconnected there.  If it is not, then the cable most likely popped loose at the shifter end.  You might be able to see the cable at the shifter end if you raise the vehicle (safely!) and crawl under there to see it.  Otherwise the shifter will have to be removed to inspect the cable connection on that end.

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.
