SOURCE: My 97 F250 wont shift out of park? Engine starts,

most likely your brake switch is out. If you had a scanner you would be able to see if the computer see's you pressing on the pedal. Or if you know how to test you could check to see if it switches ( completes the circuit ).

SOURCE: wont shift from park to drive its stuck

Since those incidents of runaway cars, they installed an interlock to prevent you from shifting out of park unless you have the brake firmly pressed down.
While checking and fixing a bad brake light switch is a good idea, the interlock was not, so I would just remove it.
It is unreliable, as the solenoid and connections fail commonly, and it is not worth the risk of not being able to drive. That is far more dangerous then the silly thing the interlock was intended to prevent.

SOURCE: My '97 grand prix wont shift from park. What is

Hi, you have a malfunctioning brake/park interlock. When you go to shift out of park, as you know, you have to hit the brake or the shifter won't jump out of Park into Reverse. The interlock device that in this system is probably failing.

SOURCE: 97 mazda 626 wont shift from park. release button on side of shifter wont push in. removed knob, plastic rod in center wont move

The 1st thing you need to do is check the brake lights, if they are not wiorking the park lock solenoid doesn't get power and the park lock remains engaged.

SOURCE: car won't shift from neutral to park

replacing transmission?????nonsence!!! i can tell this is an automatic trans setup, not standard. lets start here. put car in PARK and turn key on so the dash comes on. do not start car. step on the brake pedal several times slowly and listen for audible sound coming from the shifter area. you should hear clicking sound everytime yo uhit the brake. that is the shift lock solenoid releasing the mechanism indside of the shifter assembly so you can get the car out of park and into gear. you may have an issue with the shifter assembly it self. if no clicking sound is heard, it will need to be diagnosed fruther. the solenoid can not be purhcsed separatelly. shifter assembly only. start with the listening procedure and let me know.

97 le sabre is surging and stalling at low speeds of about 5 mph, like when pulling into a parking lot. Usually will start right back up but last night had to have jumped


If "VOLT" or battery symbol is lit when engine is running, the alternator is not charging the battery. Replace alternator.

I'm sorry to tell you this happened to me too. Probably internal failure of the transmission. Take it to a shop before you do more damage and have them check it out.
