You must depress brake pedal to get shifter to move. Shifter unit is electrical, not mechanical to the transmission!

SOURCE: i have a 2005 navigator the shifter is stuck in

Its a sensor under the brake. You can actually pull the shifter with a little force and it will go into gear. It will cost about $400 at a good garage. Looking at $600 and more at dealer. When you force it into gear, you are not hurting the transmission, just over riding the sensor. Your "D" will not light up on the dash or at the shifter untiol you fix it.

SOURCE: I parked my truck in the garage after work. Came

that has happened to me I usually hold the button and try to shake it a little. My son has had to take it a part to get it to move. I read somewhere that there is a recall with something to do with the bands in the shifter. I don't know if it is the same problem or not.

Why does it get stuck in park


Chris: According to MyAutomaticTransmission.com: "Shifter Lever

Recognizing that you might one day find yourself in such a predicament, vehicle manufacturers incorporated a quick and easy method for manually releasing a shifter stuck in Park. Follow these 4 simple steps.

1. Set the emergency brake.

2. Locate the shifter lock override slot located on the shifter console near the shifter lever. Normally, the slot is plugged with a small plastic cap.

3. Remove the plastic cap covering the override slot and insert a key, nail file or similarly shaped object into the slot and push down.

4. While pushing down, depress the brake pedal, grab the shifter and push in the shifter lock button located on the shifter as you normally do and then move the shifter to the Neutral position. With the brake pedal still depressed, start the engine with the shifter in the Neutral position.

NOTE: If the shifter lever will still not move, repeat the process making sure to press down firmly on the locking mechanism and the brake pedal simultaneously as you attempt to move the shifter lever.


NOTE: Continuing to drive your vehicle in this condition will not cause any additional damage. You will just have to use this procedure to release the shifter each time you attempt to move the shifter out of the Park position." I hope this helps you!

Shifter button stuck


there should be 2 Phillips screws hold the shifter knob to the shaft. once you take out those screws it should just pop up. as far as I know there are no springs in the knob it's just a slide button. the rest of the parts are part of the shifter assembly.

Ignition switch will not engage/turn to start car


Hi Beth usually when shifter is stuck there is a locking mechanism and keeps shifter from engaging unless brake is depressed to release the lock. If you hear a clicking sound when pedal is depressed then switch is probably ok and its probably the steering wheel lock. First try with your spare key to start the vehicle(old key may be worn ). If that doesn't do it then try with WD 40 a very little in ignition key hole or on the key work it slowly and see what happens. If none of these suggestions work its probably the steering wheel lock and that requires surgery. Keep me post best of luck

How do i fix my Chevy Cobalt. Floor shifter stays stuck in park postion. I am pressing brake pedal and pushing the shifter button.


have a helper. tell him to press brake pedal. you come to back of vehicle and see if the brake lights work when helper press the pedal. if lights don't work the tail light fuse has blown. so you cant take from park. and on some brands if horn fuse blown you cant take from park.

Went to park in my 2006 envoy. Shifter got stuck in neutral and the shifter button will not depress.


Same thing happened to me today(but while in drive!). had to crawl UNDER vehicle, driver side, behind the transmission where it narrows down, and the shifting rod (connected to your shifter in vehicle) came disconnected from what i assume was a gear knob on transmission. its basically a screw and nut holding the two together. ill temporarily replace it tomorrow until i can order correct screw and nut. hope this is same situation and helps. easy fix.

ps if you push the gear -knob all the way forwards under vehicle, that is in the Park gear.

The motor start ok but impossible shift to back up,the automatic shifter is block.


this vehicle has a shift-lock solenoid and the brake pedal has to be depressed to activate

if your brakes lights work and you still cannot get out of park then...

if you have a floor shifter look around the shifter for a little "plug"
pop the plug out with something like a toothpick or something sharp that will not scratch the plastic

then insert a key, any key that fits will work, into the hole

inside is a little button and when depressed will allow you to shift out of park

place the vehicle in N and start your car

Stuck in park


vehicle has a brake inter-lock system where depressing the brake pedal closes a pedal switch then energizes a solenoid in the shifter housing which will permit shifter movement(the pink lever is a manual over-ride in the event this sytem becomes inoperative). I would check brake pedal switch and a voltage signal to the solenoid when depressing which should isolate the inoperative component or missing voltage.
