1998 GMC Sierra 5.0L won t shift out park when pressing brake.

Could be the brake switch or the shift lock solenoid. You may be able to turn the key switch to the unlock position and shift out of park before you turn the key switch on.

My car won't shift out of park. I have a 1998

if the gear shift is in the middle down by the floor sounds like ur gear shifter went out..... sometimes there is a rubber piece that is in the gearshifter that will go bad as well and that needs to be replaced in order for it to come out of park... i would have someone u know that knows about cars look at it or get it towed to a shop.. i hope this helps....

Have a 2000 Sephia....grandson drove it..parked it in driveway....put in it park and now it won't come out of park.

Seems the shift interlock solenoid may have no voltage to it when you apply the brake or it may have gone bad .I would check voltage first it gets voltage from the brake switch when you apply the brakes.You can manually shift it by removing that little plastic cover next to the shifter and inserting a screwdriver into the hole as you push down on the shift interlock shift the gear shifter.

next to the shifter is a small cover,take this cover off and push in with your key or screw driver,this should let you take it out of park.
