Oh, boy - this could be pricey!! Either the shift linkage came apart or the Transmission went bad. Find the shift linkage rod coming through the firewall and follow it to the transmission. Check for connection to the trans and if the grommets are good. If both are good, then you'll need to get it to a transmission shop to be investigated. If no Linkage rod, then your trans is 'wired' meaning it is electronically controlled, and the shift solenoid ( or other component)is bad or has a bad connection. If this is the case, locate the shift solenoid on the side of the trans and inspect the wires - if any are burnt or lumpy, that would be bad and need replacement.
Hope this helps!!

SOURCE: manual transmission goes into gear without clutch

Clutch adjusted wrong so not fully engaged, or clutch plate worn out.
Pedal should have 1" or so movement before pressure felt building up.
If not, adjust so there is some free play.
If free play is present the clutch itself is likely in trouble or the mechanism is damaged.

It may or may not be a problem with shifter interlock system .
Automatic Transmission Shift Lock Control System
The automatic transmission shift lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the engine is running. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of the PARK position. The system consists of the following components:
• The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid
• The body control module (BCM)
• The engine control module (ECM)
• The transmission control module (TCM)
The body control module (BCM) controls the voltage supply circuit of the shift lock control solenoid. The following conditions must be met before the BCM will supply battery voltage to the shift lock control solenoid:
• The ignition is in the ON position.
• The ECM sends a serial data message to the BCM indicating the transmission is in the PARK position.
• The ECM receives a brake applied input from the brake light switch and sends a serial data message to the BCM indicating the brakes are not applied.
With the above conditions met, the BCM supplies battery voltage to the shift lock control solenoid. The solenoid is permanently grounded and therefore energizes, locking the shift lever in the PARK position. When the brake pedal is depressed the ECM send a serial data message to the BCM indicating the brakes are applied. The BCM turns off the battery voltage supply to the shift lock control solenoid. This de-energizes the shift lock control solenoid releasing the mechanical lock, allowing the driver to move the shift lever out of the PARK position. With the shift lever out of the PARK position the ECM sends a serial data message to the BCM and no voltage is applied to the shift lock control solenoid.

Gears won't change. Can anybody provide some useful advice. ?


Automatics have a gear shift safety solenoid that locks the gearshift/transmission in park unless the brake pedal is depressed. This is to prevent people from dropping into a gear from park and rolling into traffic or backing up over someone unexpectedly. When you press the brake pedal you should be able to hear a clicking sound coming from under the gear shift lever. If you dont hear the sound then the solenoid may need to be replaced. The other possibility is needing to replace the brake pedal position switch (usually attached to the pedal assembly or behind the brake pedal assembly) which tells the shifter solenoid to activate when the pedal is depressed.

1995 Ford Escort Wagon Automatic, Won't shift


Hi there,

Most modern automatic cars require the driver to depress the brake pedal first, to allow releasing the gear out of Park.

Some automatic transmissions also provide an 'overide' switch near the gear lever, to allow manual release of the gear lever.

If neither of the above resolve this, then you will need to check the operation of your brake switch, mounted on the brake pedal.

Shift - interlock system problem .
Automatic Transmission Shift Lock Control System
The automatic transmission shift lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the engine is running. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of PARK position. The system consists of the following components:
• The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid
• The automatic transmission park lock solenoid
• The automatic transmission shift lock control switch
• The transmission range switch
With the ignition in the ON position, battery voltage is supplied to the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The circuit continues through the normally-closed switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The transmission range switch provides a path to ground for the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid in the PARK position. With the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid energized the shift lever is mechanically locked in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open, de-energizing the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. This allows the shift lever to move from the PARK position. When the shift lever is out of the PARK position the controlled ground contacts in the transmission range switch open. This prevents the automatic transmission shift lock solenoid from energizing when the vehicle is out of the PARK position.

2006 TRAILBLAZER WONT START AND GEAR SHIFT BUTTON WONT DEPRESS


it's possible that the brake light switch on your brake pedal arm could be bad. this controls both the brake lights and the solenoid that unlocks the shifter to allow the button to be depressed. as far as the truck not starting, the shifter linkage may need adjusting on the transmission.

I am unable to get my 2001 spectre into gear. I


If it has a center console inside the center console is a shift interlock solenoid which when the brake pedal is depressed sends a voltage signal to the shift interlock solenoid which then unlocks the shifter allowing you to shift it. It may be bad look into it. You can also manually unlock the shifter by pulling the small plug on the console next to the shifter then sticking a screwdriver down in there far enough to un lock the shifter they made that for this reason.

How do you remove shifter being stuck at park for a 1990 toyota camry?


For the short term and as a temporary measure, the shift lever can be released by depressing shift lock override button which is in a small hole next to the shifter, typically covered with a small piece of plastic.

A permanent fix is needed though. The transmission shifter has a safety interlock. You must depress the brake to release the interlock in-order to shift into a drive or reverse gear. This system is powered by electricity. The fuse may be blown. Check the fuses for faults. The brake pedal / brake light circuit must be functioning in order to put the car in gear. Check the blue 10amp brake light fuse. Make sure the wiring in the trunk does not have breaks that may cause the fuse to blow

Automatic transmission 98 4 runner


You have a blown brake lamp fuse.
Start the vehicle, depress the brake, and have someone observe to see if you have brake lights. No brake lights = no removal from park W/O pushing the over-ride switch.
FYI: Brake lamp fuse failures are most always created by a faulty trailer wire harness.
