RELEASE PARKING BRAKE.
Press hard on brake pedal. Make sure vehicle wheels are not against something. feel for button actuation if its a consol shifter. If all else fails, raise drive wheels off ground. floor jack recommended.
BE EXTREMELY CAREFUL. RAISING WHEELS WILL RELIEVE ANY PRESSURE ON THE TRANSMISSION. yOU WILL NOTICE IT IF THERE IS ANY AS SOON AS WHEELS LET GO OF PAVEMENT.

There is a shift solenoid connected to the brake pedal circuit to release the shifter.it is the click you hear when stepping on the brake.otherwise it stays in park.
the manual overide will let you put it in gear.

I drove my 2005 Dodge Stratus from one parking to the other without an issue. Two hours later, when I turned the key nothing would happen. Battery is good, interior and headlights turn on, but radio


maybe a bad ignition switch or your timing belt,also try turning your steering wheel back and forth while trying to start it.make sure you are actualy in park or that your steering linkage is working and not disconnected under the hood

Locks up


Hi,
1. Ensure the gearshift lever is fully in Park. Put foot on brake and move lever fully into Park and try to turn key.

2. Ensure steering wheel isn't locked. Put key in and turn steering wheel to the left and/or right to see if key will turn.

DO NOT FORCE KEY or it may break!

UUUhh your wheel locking mechanism is jammed, i would try forcing it to try to get the key to work, or if it were me, i would take the steering wheel off and un jam the ignition switch

Have a 2002 dodge neon and the ignition locked up i had it towed and the tow truck driver told me it was my ignition switch... this isint the first time this has happened so after i got it home i just...


Inside the steering column the ignition switch ties in with the steering and shifter lock. The lock plate will sometimes get off center/ out of alignment especially if the wheels aren't straight. This can make everything lockup. If more jiggling doesn't help, you may have to remove the steering wheel and ignition lock, align or replace the lock plate (if damaged) It could also be that the casing on the ignition lock cracked or broke and part of it has jammed in there.

Steering wheel locks up when parked


Although the car is not in front of me, it sounds like when you park ( is this parallel parking ? ) your steering wheel is turned hard to the left or right, which creates extreme pressure on the steering wheel lock. In order to help overcome this problem, you must "armstrong" the steering wheel in the same direction the front wheels are turned. Locking up on the freeway with this same issue. Highly unlikely.

Car will not start and steering wont unlock


Your steering wheel may be jammed. This happens when you park on an incline and the force of the car rolling back jams the steering. Try to turn the steering wheel hard in one direction while trying to crank, then the other direction if the first doesn't work. You may need to take pressure off of the steering lock by pushing the car a little bit.
