Why it will not go into gear?


check to see if the brake lights are working. some cars have a lockout for the gear shifter that won`t allow you to shift out of park if they are not working. it is wired into the brake light switch so when the switch or fuse is not working then the car won`t shift out of park.

Gear shift is stuck on park


Be sure to check ALL fuses. Next check to see brake lights come on when brake pedal is press to check brake light switch. If this doesn't work you may have a mechanical problem inside shifter housing.

Brake lights won't come on after changing brake booster on 97 gmc 1500. Also won't shift into gear.


check for a bad brake light fuse! if not the fuse, the brake light switch operates brake lights and if bad you will not be able to shift it out of park, as well as the brake lights not coming on.! because you have to put foot on brake to do so. if bad switch, it wont let it out of park. it could be just out of adjustment also!! good-day !

Car will not go into gear while running


Check your brake lights. There is a switch on the brake pedal that actuates a release solenoid for the shifter. If this switch is bad, it won't shift out of gear and most likely the brake lights won't work.
Replacing this switch should fix your problem.

Gear shift will not move from park


First thing to check is your brake lights. The brake interlock for the shifter relies on the switch that turns your brake lights on. If it's not working, you won't have brake lights OR the ability to move the shifter out of park. In an emergency, most of these vehicles have a small plug near the shifter that you can remove, push a button, and move the shifter without pushing the brake pedal.

Good luck.

My 1994 toyota Corolla will not switch out of park to reverse or drive and the brake lights won't come on no matter how hard I press on the brakes. I have changed the brake light switch and even...


There is a small plasic acess cover (1/2" x1/2") on the base of the shifter. Pry it open and press the button. You should immediately be able to shift. The button is needed because the sensor on your brake pedal is broken (won't activate your brake lights either). Use the button on your shifter to get your car home or to the mechanic so you can get the brake switch fixed. Remember whern you drive you have no brake lights. -Mark

There is a brake switch on the pedal about half way up. check this and see if you have power coming out when depressed. If you do then the problem lies in the turn signal switch, Some times it's a loose wire.
