IF THE CAR WON'T TAKE A JUMP THAN YOU NEED TO REPLACE THE BATTERY. BUT FIRST CHECK THE TERMINALS FOR CORROSION AND MAKE SURE THEY ARE TIGHT. I HOPE THIS HELPS YOU. PLEASE KEEP ME INFORMED. THANKS FOR USING FIX-YA. AND THANK YOU IN ADVANCE FOR AN HONEST RATING. BEST OF LUCK. P.S. CHECK ALL THE FUSES BEFORE YOU BUY A NEW BATTERY.

Need to jump my 2014 Honda Civic - it's in the garage and I can't get it into neutral to move out for a jump. Help?


Near the shifter there is a cap, remove it with a small screwdriver and insert your key or the screwdriver. While pushing it in, you will be able to shift into neutral.

The battery is so dead that a jumper will not have the amps to start the car. The clicking sound is from the starter trying to turn. First I would go a head and replace the battery with one you no to be fully charged and try again.

2000 Buick regal- My key is stuck in the ignition and will not come out and it has no power, I am unable to even move it oiut of the garage. Help!


I suspect your battery is dead. The key won't come out unless the car is in park also.. and might even require power from the battery to get the key out.. I would start with a jump to the battery and see if your key issue is solved.

I have a Dodge Avenger 2008 with a dead battery and the vehicle is in a one car garage. I can't shift the car to neutral to push it out of the garage and jump start it. How do I get the vehicle into...


If the battery is dead,it is a dangerous practice
to jump start it,not recommended I should say

If you can charge it, or take it out and replace it, that
is your best bet.

Someone on your street will have a charger
you can use

How can I put car in neutral if battery is dead?


What you have is a safety switch, wich is why when the car is running you need to step on the brake to release the shifter from park. the switch is electric, and therefore isn't working because your battery is dead. Now, for the good news. Next to your shifter there should be a little plug, or a slot about the size of your door lock key hole. Insert your key into the slot, press down lightly, and then you can take the car out of park. That is called your "shift lock release"
Good luck!

Battery Dead - How can I get the vehicle into neutral


i hate to say it, but you are gonna have to open the hood in the confined area and try to work with the area you have or call in whatever autoclub you use / the dealer and make it their problem.

actually you can buy a jump box that plugs into your cig. lighter and jump it that way. my jump box has the set up to do it that way. but check your owners manual to see if the car will accept that without damage.
