There is a lock out solinoid in the steering column. but the problem was in the shift cable.
The easiest way to diagnoise this problem was to disconect at the transmission and then try the shifter.

2010 merc gm shift lever stuck in park car will start steering wheel turns


You have a shift interlock problem . What kind of vehicle ? a mercury what ?
Shift Interlock System
The shift interlock system prevents shifting from PARK unless the brake pedal is depressed. The shift interlock system consists of a shift lock actuator mounted on the selector lever. If the ignition switch is in the RUN position, the shift lock actuator is disabled when the brake pedal is depressed.
If the selector lever will not move out of PARK with the key in the ON position and the brake pedal depressed, it will need to be unlocked manually.
Do the brake lights work ?
Visually inspect for obvious signs of mechanical and electrical damage; refer to the following chart:

1991 Cadillac 409 engine won't shift out of Park


Lets start by checking your brake light switch.
Your car has a switch on the brake pedal that not only makes the brake lights come on, but also tells the transmission it can shift out of park.
This really may be 2 separate switches, but should be under the dashboard and both should "open" when you push the brake pedal down.
Take a good flashlight and look.
The switches are small, about the size of your thumb, and both should have 2 wires attached to them.
Be blessed.

How can i get it to shift to neutral


You need to post what make of vehicle this is and whether it is an Automatic or stick shift.

In general, the brake pedal must be pressed for an Automatic to be shifted away from Park. In most stick shifts, the neutral is available after pressing in on the clutch.

For Automatics requiring the pressing of the brake pedal, an interlock switch is on the brake pedal lever under the dash. The switch can be knocked out of place by feet or even broken by the drivers feet striking it.

The idea is for the gearshift and brake pedal to be "interlocked" so the brakes are applied before the gearshift can be moved. This requires the shift linkage to be adjusted or "timed" to line up for the electric signal produced by the brake pedal switch. There is also a similar system to prevent the starter from working when the gears are not in Park or neutral.

In the case of a car like a Corvette, you would push down on the stick shift before the trans will engage neutral. This was made so you would not be able to over rev the engine by missing a gear.

I hope that one of my solutions works for your unknown vehicle.

My shifter got locked i hav a 2006 forenza


Most newer cars have a "shift interlock" on them so you can't shift out of PARK unless you are pressing the brake pedal. It is usually a switch attatched to the brake pedal under the dash. If this switch goes bad, you won't be able to shift out of PARK.

2006 HHR with automatic transmission. I hear a solanoid clicking sound coming from the shifter area like a solinoid when I start the car and push the brake pedal before pressing the shift button and going...


This time only, your dealer is right. The sound is the Brake to Shift Interlock (BTSI) solenoid releasing the shift lever when you apply the brake. The sound is normal and won't hurt anything but I understand your concern.

1997 ford truck cannot get it out of park. Replaced brake light switch assembly.


The shift interlock system prevents the shifting from PARK unless the brake pedal (2455) is depressed. The shift interlock system consists of a shift lock actuator (3Z719) mounted at the base of the steering column tube (3514). If the ignition switch (11572) is in the RUN position, the shift lock actuator is continually on unless the brake pedal is depressed. The shift lock actuator is the logical culprit. Check to see if it's getting voltage when the brake pedal is depressed. If yes: the unit is either faulty, weak or stuck. I can provide wire numbers and colors if necessary. I may need the engine size and Trans. code found on drivers door sticker. Good luck! Aoogha

1993 festiva will not shift out of park.


yes the part your referring to is called a brake shift interlock.if the solenoid has failed or is not getting voltage from the brake pedal switch than it will not allow you to shift from park.if you have your center console out, you can unplug the BSI solenoid and check for source voltage present while applying the brake pedal (ignition key on)if you have source voltage present and nothing from the solenoid than i would call it a bad solenoid
