That is a result of the 'minor collsion' that can be fixed,. It is an adjustment on the cable for the transmission you can talk to a service person at a dealership and they can tell you where it is supposed to be. hope that give you some hope

Why is shifter stuck in park?

There's an electric solenoid that locks the gear selector. It is controlled by the vehicle computer. The vehicle computer checks to see that you're good to go (engine running) before releasing the gear shift solenoid. I had the vehicle computer go bad on me one day and the vehicle gear selector was locked in park. Towed my XK8 to a Jaguar dealer, a recycled vehicle computer installed, and solenoid release worked again for my car.

2006 ford fusion key will not come out of ignition

Electronic's . Your vehicle has a couple safety system that are computer controlled . Shift interlock won't let the gear selector move from park into a gear unless you foot is pushing on the brake pedal .Brake switch is a input to the SJB - smart junction box , ford's body control module. The SJB controls a lock solenoid that will lock the gear selector . Plus has system feature that won't let the key lock an be pulled from the ignition if not in park . Problems happen that cause these not to work . Your best bet , have a qualified repair shop check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes .

2004 dodge intrepid wont move out of park

Usually a problem with the brake switch or the solenoid that locks the shifter in park.
You may be able to unlock the key switch without turning the switch on, then take the shifter out of park.

2004 F-450 power stroke diesel, sometimes it won't turn over when you turn the key. It has a automatic transmision,if I shift it to drive then back to park,it will usually crank.Once it cranks and runs it...

It may be a fault with the gear selector ignition isolation switch on the side of the transmission. As a safety measure the vehicle cannot be started when the gear selector is in anything other than park (maybe neutral). If the linkage between the gear selector and the selector switch on the transmission is a bit slack or the switch on the transmission is faulty the ignition might be disabled as it assumes it is actually left in gear. Check the this selector switch and the shift linkage to it. I think the fault might be easy to correct with adjustment, clean up or exchange

The transmision is locked in park. Level ground. Just can"t get it out of park.

your brake pedal has a switch located at the top of the brake pedal arm that may need to be replaced. Is there a slot by the shifter that you can put the key into? Most cars have a slot that you can release the shifter with. If not see if your brake lights work. If not you may need to replace the brake light switch.

My key is stuck in the ignition. Won't lock.

do not try to put the key in lock. if it will still start, then you will be able to replace the lock cylinder. if you rotate it to lock then you might not get it to turn again. as for the gear selector, there is a release on the shifter. some have a slot to stick a key and push down as you change gears. others you may have to take apart the console, and you will see the release lever.

Mazda3 gear selector won't light up ''P'' for park

I had the same problem and I fixed it by oiling the gear shaft beside the transmission tank. There is no taking apart anything in the transmision but instead the shaft that is visible under the car I oiled.
