SOURCE: 1993 camry le 6cly will not roll backwards.

It sounds like a problem with the reverse gear and you're probably going to have to have a transmission shop look at it,I'm assuming it locks when it's running and you shift into reverse.

SOURCE: 1996, stuck in park shifter moves fine, but car

The park pawl is spring loaded and it sounds like that spring has broken. The problem is, the trany has to be removed from the car and completely disassembled to fix it. The linkage for park is all mechanical, the transmission could be completely out of fluid and park should still work. I guess, I would get into the habbit of setting the park brake, then put the car in park and pull it out of park, before you release the park brake. You could also leave the shifter in the neutral position and set the park brake. This will allow you to start the car but you won't be able to remove the key. Hopefully the brake cables are not all rusted up. Good luck.

SOURCE: I used my cars emergency

Ok not sure what car u have but most rear brakes are the same unless it has disc brakes on the rear. Release the brake and then crawl under the car and look at the back of the rear brake drum, you will see a cable going either in or across the rear drum to a lever.Try tapping the lever away from the cable and see if this frees up your brakes. Good luck.

Can not back up or even push it backwards in neutral running or not.


The right rear brake on my Granddaughters car was so worn that the pad jammed when turning backwards stopping any backwards motion. When going forward it did not jam and could be pushed or driven forward. Tell everyone that if you hear scraping noises when applying brakes to get them checked right away.

2000 Sebring JXI wont start & when in reverse you can push the car forward or backward

Click on the link for starter wiring. Not sure what's going on with your tranny? You can see in the diagram, the tranny module gets voltage from the crank position, ignition switch. You can also see the fuse, not only check the fuse, use a testlight and check voltage on fuse circuit.
Any testing, make sure functional parking brake is set and block the wheels. be safe. Safety is your responsibility.
Battery has a full charge and battery connections all good?

My truck is stuck in drive and I cannot move it to any other gear. My key is stuck in it. I push on the brakes to try and get it to move and the brakes will not go down. Help!!


you will have to move brake pedal lock switch by hand while you wiggle key switch forward and backward to get them to align back up with shifter safety its a little tricky but will enable you to get it in park and remove key

You mean the shifter is stuck?, in park?or the shifter goes to each gear but the car wont move? If the shifter is stuck, check all fuses and be sure the brake lights operate.

My park avenue has been sitting for 3years. I dropped the tank and cleaned it and it started right up. when I put into gear it wont go.


Hi the chances are the brakes are seized solid if this is the case then hitting the center of the back wheels with big hammer can free the parking brake, if the parking brake has been on all this time then this is going to be your problem, if the hammer dont work then your going to need to keep working the car backwards and forwards until the seized brakes free up, give it a hit with a hammer and then try moving back and forwards keep doing this until the brakes are free.

one way of testing the brakes is to jack the wheels up one at a time and see if you can turn the wheels by hand hopefully the front wheels should turn but the chances are the back are stuck solid

Look under car if parking brake cable is loose with parking brake off your parking brake are stuck, it will be very hard to remove brake drum's beining parking brake is engage, try to push it with another car and hopefuly it will break loose, then take it to repair shop so they can lube the parking brake system.Hope this was helpful.

Wont move out of park


Your brake switch may have gone out. The way to test this is to apply the brakes and see if your brake lights are working. If so, then your transmission has gotten stuck and you need to either push the vehicle forward if facing up hill or backward if facing down hill. This will release the transmission and allow you to shift.

Emergency brake could be stuck in the "ON" position. try rocking the car forward and backward.
Also engage the "E" brake and disengage multiple times to try get it unstuck.
