SOURCE: car will not shift out of park and yes the brake is being pressed

Shifter assemblies are a common problem with these vehicles (floor shift models). An audible click should be heard in the shifter area when the brake pedal is depressed (if not, you may have an electrical issue in the btsi curcuit, see a qualified repair facility). Hope this helps you, good luck

Radio, Brake Light, Interior lights, And Wont Shift Out Of Park.


This problem sounds like you dislodged the switch on the brake pedal lever. You need the signal to unlock the vehicle from Park. You will probably find that the Brake lights do not work when you press the brake pedal.

Now if the switch is good, you probably broke the fuse feeding power to the switch. You can get a wiring diagram online by running a Websearch or going to Autozone.com and registering your car. This site has a HELP section at the bottom of the page and you would need to toggle between free and pay info.

Wont shift out of park, brake lights dont work


your brake switch is broken, its on the top of brake peddle. It wont shift from park because you need to press brake to shift from park and with the switch not working it doesn't know your pressing the brake. check connection on switch if its fine you need to replace.

TRANSMISSION CABLE


On my '96 Olds 98, brake transaxle shift interlock is simply a pain in the ***. Solution: always press foot brake AND parking brake hard and hold while shifting into park and shutting down engine. Try not to park "downhill." Read owners manual;"shifting out of park." This even calls for opening and shutting the door! If you can't start in park, try neutral. If all else fails, unhook red battery cable for a minute. Re-attach and restart car, which should re-set computer to recognize your key, which has a computer chip embedded in it. Worst option EVER invented!

My 98 ford mustang is stuck in park


check fuses for brake shift solenoid. the brake pedal position switch is a fuse under the hood. inside the passenger compartment, check every fuse. that's a start for not having more information.

How do you override the transmission shift lock on a 1998 Volkswagen Beetle, when it's stuck in Park?


On most cars of that year and newer you have to have the engine running and be pressing down on the brake pedal to shift out of park. If that does not work try having some one rock the car forward and back while you try to shift out of park. If the rocking trick works in the future while still in gear and holding the brakes set your parking break then shift to park. This will keep the weight of the car of the parking lock in the transmision and prevent the problem from reoccurring. Good Luck!!

96 subaru will not shift out of park


you probably have a fuse or circuit burned. If not the relay that commands the unlock mode when you press the brakes is gone. This is obviously a security device. You shoud get it fixed. If you still want to move your car, you can override this security by removing the plastic cap that is around the transmission shifter inside the car. It looks like a cover. It's press fit. By applying a small pressure sideways you should be able to remove it. You'll see then the base of the shifter. On the right side there should be a mechanical box with a hole. Insert a stick like a robertson screwdriver there, press down while shifting out of park. You'll be able to drive to the garage.
