    The button on the shifter is stuck in. It will not pop out. Am able to drive car and change gears. Problem with this is i could blow up transmission by knocking the shifter from drive into reverse as there is nothing stopping it.

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.

SOURCE: Sometimes when I put my 2000 kia sportage in park,

Sounds like a messed up the shift linkage, and its possible that need just one adjust or repaired it. There is a paw in the transmission that lock the transmission when in park. If you recently make any repair its possible that the technician broke the paw by slaming the transmission in park while it was still moving. It could be an expensive repair if they have to go into the tranny.

Keep us updated.

SOURCE: shifter is stuck in park.

these systems have solenoid which is controlled by the brake pedal.the solenoid should b located underneath shifter.u have to remove trim panels on shifter , access the solenoid and check for power an ground at solenoid with key on and brake pedal depressed. the solenoid unlocks the shifter gate that loks out gears until the brake pedal is depressd therefore allowing u to shift the shifter. not really hard to do.jus need to b careful on popping out plastic trim pieces and know how to nuse an voltmeter or test light. if u have power an ground at solenoid safe to say solenoid bad. also try tappin on solenoid while checking volts to see if it starts to work.if it does solenoid is bad

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!

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

Check your brake lights, if the system doesn't get a brake lights on signal it will not release park, it is called the park lock system.

Help me please with a transmission problem.


The linkage/brackets may be bent. If the button is stuck in the knob, the shift lever itself may be bent, with some luck the plastic is just interfering with button movement back out.

The ZF transmissions are rather stupid proof.

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 front of the handle has a large "U" clip. Use a screw drive and pry the clip out. It's a lot easier to do when the shifter is pulled all the way back to "1" or "2" but is doable in park still. The handle will then pull up. There will be a plastic piece in it that pushes down to release the lock in the shifter assembly. If when you push the plastic piece down it doesn't release the lock you will have to remove the shifter cover and take a look inside, to see what broke. It may require replacing the whole shifter assembly. You should be able to find the complete assembly used for fairly cheap.

GEO TRACKER AUTO shifter does not release from park


I found this online. Check to see if you have back brake lights. If not the fuse for them also triggers the gear release.
