What do i do if I released the park brake but its still stuck


If it is the park brake not releasing it might be a brake shoe that is not releasing. Put the vehicle in reverse and pay the clutch engagement (release - push down) to induce a oscillated motion to the vehicle. The brake should release. Servicing of the brakes should be done as soon as possible as binding should not occur when the park brake is used.

My truck used to get stuck in park but now its permanently stuck in park and will not shift.


Try gently turning the wheel left or right as you try to shift. Truck starts ok I assume. Also apply brake. Maybe the switch thT tells it the brake is pushed is bad

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.

that is park lock failure, build into the shifter section,it has an
electric solenoid lock. and a bypass button.
in the glove box, see oper. guide, it tells you where the erg. release
button location, and varies by sub body type and options.
its hidden cover, or a slot, on most cars. the slot type is to insert
any key in slot and push. bang, it opens (brake set,etc)

My 2001 ford focus is stuck in park, stepping on brake, does not release it from park, and brake lights are not working.........


Without the brake lights working the shift interlock can't release. Turn the key just off the "locked" position and you should be able to shift to neutral and start the engine then shift to drive or reverse. Just don't shift back into park until you are parking the car to leave it.

My car is stuck in park, the brake lights do not work, Ive replaced the switch on the brake pedal and the turn signal switch. Its a 1995 Ford Taurus GL with a 3.0L. I can get the car out of park by turning...


The neutral safety switch on the tranny is going out. Replace this switch and you should not have any more problems. This switch registers that your foot is on the brake before it will allow it to come out of park to keep kids from accidently engaging the shifter.

Do you Hear the (RATCHETING Noise when you Push the Pedal Down ? If Not Its Possibly the Spring that Holds Pressure Against The RATCHET PAW on the Mechenizm itself.
