SOURCE: gear shift lever moves but

The shift solenoid is stuck. The lever is moving, but its not making the gears to shift.First check the shift solenoid, if its stuck / worn out cracked.It has to be replaced.Also check the brake light switch. The brake light switch has alot to do with being able to shift from park since the sensor sends a signal telling the system that the brake pedal is being pressed and to allow you to shift from park. -- There is a small cable attached to the ignition switch that unblocks the gear shift. When this cable gets loose or broken it does not unblock the gear shift, causing it to get stuck.--- Checkout, this should help.Keep updated.Thanks.Helpmech.

SOURCE: why won't the gear shift move to drive

you need to check and see if your brake lights are working, the same switch operates the shift interlock solenoid.

1998 toyota tacoma slips out of gear

Check the shifter cable at the transmission side and see tf the pivot on the transmission is not rusted and is not difficult to move, take your vehicle and shift to neutral, now turn it off, put on parking brake or block wheels so you don't run yourself over now you can feel the shift link on the transmission, lube it up as it may not be going in fully and causing to slip out, good luck..

check the fuses as if the brake light fuse is blown it won`t allow the shifter to move out of has a shift interlock system so the gear shift won`t accidentally be moved out of park by mistake.
