SHIFTER LOCKED IN PLACE

  1. Remove the instrument panel cover below the steering column, then remove the steering column shrouds to gain access to the brake transmission shift interlock (BTSI) solenoid. The solenoid is part of the interlock cable assembly.
  2. Disconnect the wire connector from the rear of the BTSI solenoid.
  3. Insert the ignition key and turn it to the ON position.
  4. With the brakes applied, try moving the shifter out of the PARK position.
    • If the lever now moves freely in and out of PARK, perform the Circuit Test below.
    • If the shift lever still does not move from the PARK position, remove the BTSI solenoid from the shift lever assembly. If the shift lever now moves freely in and out of the park position, the BTSI solenoid is faulty and the interlock cable must be replaced. If the shift lever still does not move from the park position, the problem is in the shift lever assembly or the ignition interlock cassette

2006 azera won't shift out of park


You have to determine if its electrical or mechanical. Cars should come out of park with break depressed and and key in on position.

To get the car in gear and drive it to a mechanic:
Look for a round cap in the console/cover just in front of the shifter. Remove the plastic cap then you can push (down) the shift release with a small screw driver or pen. Break needs to be depressed and move this shifter all at the same time. I think it resets when you go back to park.

To troubleshoot:
Verify the brake light come on (part of interlocking system) if no check brake fuse. if break lights work check fuse that controls 'key lock control module' and its power source.

2004 Volvo s60 awd t 'stuck in park'


Check your brake lights and see if they are working. The solenoid in the shifter is energized by you stepping on the brake. If your break lights do not work... your stuck in park. This can be caused by a bad brake light switch located above your brake pedal or.... a blown hazard / brake light fuse. Check them first.....

My gaer shift is locked in the park position, but the gauge says it is in neutral. unable to move gear shifter.


There may be two problems. First, the problem with the gear shifter stuck in park. Likely the brake light switch is bad and needs to be replaced.

That will get you out of park and into gear. The second problem with it saying it is in neutral and not park, has to do with adjusting something at the steering column to make it read correctly.

What year, and model, and engine size is your vehicle?

Gear shift won't go out of park with engine running - have to use alternate method - can't find a bad fuse


CHECK TO SEE I THINK THERE A RECALL . YOU MUST STEP ON BREAK BEFORE ATTEMPTING TO SELECT A GEAR ON MOST ALL NEWER CARS AND TRUCKS. THE SWITCH IN THE BRAKE PEDAL COULD BE BAD OR THE SOLENOID ON THE SHIFTER COULD BE BAD.. ALWAYS CHECK ALL OF YOUR FUSSES(BOTH SIDES) WITH A 12 TEST LIGHT

2007 dodge magnum gear stuck in park


The BTSI (Brake Transmission Shift Interlock) has a small spring retainer on the park safety. A small plastic tab breaks & releases the spring. This requires the shifter to be disassembled in order to be repaired.

Repaired mine Sunday May 1st and can provide detailed instructions if desired.

If you are lucky, your brake interlock is the only problem. There is a bypass switch located beside the gear selector. Remove the small "cubby" bin located next to the gear shift by simply lifting up to remove. You will note a small access port and a pink button contained therein. Press the pink button to override the brake interlock.

If you still cannot shift into park, then the shifter must be removed for the spring repair. Even if yours is still under warranty, you will get another shifter that will eventually fail due to poor engineering.

Please let me know if you would like my assistance.

Floor Model Shift Lever will not Shift back into gear, '01 Grand Prix, Automatic, 6 cyl.


Foot on break is the obvious fix, when you press the break pedal you should hear a noise near the shifter which is the switch that releases the shifter, this switch is fused off the break-light fuse I think. Or there maybe weight on the transmission jamming it in park or in gear, is it parked on a hill?
