Hi , must be the bulb ( led ) needs replacing if it`s in the middle column than under that "L 2 D N R P" plastic cover.If it`s in the cluster you have to take the cluster (speedo) out and those bulbs usually can be changed from the back of the cluster. Hope that helps.

1995 Toyota Camry have no brake lights and shifter release is brokens what is named part for that shifter release button does that have anything to do with no brake lights or is that just a fuse

Different issues. The brakes are either bad bulbs, bad fuse or bad brake switch or wiring problem. The shifter release button is just that...shifter release button.

95 cougar stuck in park with no brake lights.already check the fuses replaced brake light switch, will not start from neutral.

Still no brake lights would indicate a bad wire. Check for power at the brake switch, repair the wire, they usually break close to the plug. This will get back the lights and shifter. The no start would be the neutral safety switch on the transmission. Usually the switch is under the shifter cable. Some have a separate switch.

Subaru 1995 wont go into gear

There is a small solenoid under the shifter cover that holds the shifter in park until you step on the brake that's not working all the time. It could be the brake light switch on the brake pedal is bad. Check to see if your brake lights are working correctly when you step on the brakes. If they are working right then that's not the problem and you will have to take the cover off the shifter and check to see if the solenoid is working when you step on the brake. I have seen bad or corroded connections at the plug due to liquids being spilled on the shifter. Sometimes the mechanical linkage is bent up from something getting in there through the slot that the shifter moves in. There is a little hole in the shifter cover that says manual release or some such thing. Usually it has a little plug that you have to pry off to remove with a small screwdriver. Then you put the little screwdriver in the hole and push down. That will release the lock so you can shift it. (It's used to shift the car when the battery is dead or missing)

My 2005 Toyota 4runner ABS warning light came on and went off. Now I can't shift into any gear. (auto)????

Look for a bad brake light switch above the brake pedal. If the brake light switch is not working, the shifter unlock solenoid, which gets power form the brake light switch, will not activate, and your shifter will not come out of park.
