Had this happen on 2 separate Ford Explorers. On one the problem was solved by simply pushing on the vehicle and rolling it about 8" until it locked into park. Had to do this a few times when stopped on level ground and the vehicle had not actually clicked into park. Then mysteriously the problem went away.

On the second vehicle the device in the steering column that actuates the little stop had to be replaced. We did go ahead and replace the brake pedal switch at the same time just as a precaution. On this Explorer the driver had broken the stop by forcing the shifter out of park. This caused the replacement to be slightly more difficult.

SOURCE: Shifter stuck in park.

The BTSI (Brake Transmission Shift Interlock) has a small spring retainer on the park safety. A small plastic tab breaks & releases the spring. This requires the shifter to be disassembled in order to be repaired.

Repaired mine Sunday May 1st and can provide detailed instructions if desired.

If you are lucky, your brake interlock is the only problem. There is a bypass switch located beside the gear selector. Remove the small "cubby" bin located next to the gear shift by simply lifting up to remove. You will note a small access port and a pink button contained therein. Press the pink button to override the brake interlock.

If you still cannot shift into park, then the shifter must be removed for the spring repair. Even if yours is still under warranty, you will get another shifter that will eventually fail due to poor engineering.

Please let me know if you would like my assistance.

Make sure the brake lamp switch(es) are working and no blown fuses. Be sure no aftermarket accessories have been improperly installed into these circuits.

SOURCE: Suburban stuck in PARK

I accidently posted under 2004 Envoy - actually a 1997 Chevy Suburban. Found the switch on the brake actuator rod, sprayed with WD 40 (sloppy - hit or miss) - and moved the switch around. Now works fine. If I could find a way to remove the switch, I would replace. I may find the wires for the power and release servo and jump those out with a remote switch in case of future problems.

Why cant i shift my 03 nissan altama out of park


Check to see if you have brake lights. No lights, replace the brake switch at the pedal. This will fix the park problem. If you have lights, then it could be wiring or a bad solenoid at the shifter.

Shifter stuck in park


The "brake shifter switch" (brake light switch) is located underneath the dashboard, and links directly to the brake pedal assembly. If you look, you will be able to find the switch. It is the same switch that releases the lock solenoid on your shifter.
If your brake lights are working, it is not the culprit. Check the shift lock solenoid for proper operation instead.

check to see if the brake lights come on when you press brake pedal. if they don't it is stuck in park because your brake light switch doesn't work and the swich also tells the shifter lock to unlock so you can move shifter. so If no brake lights fix brake light switch and that will fix it. the switch is located at the top of brake pedal

Check your brake lights and see if they are working. The solenoid in the shifter is energized by you stepping on the brake. If your break lights do not work... your stuck in park. This can be caused by a bad brake light switch located above your brake pedal or.... a blown hazard / brake light fuse. Check them first.....

Shifter is stuck in park. had to remove little cover over hole, by the shifter, to insert key into hole, to get shifter to remove shifter from park. what causes this and is it something i can fix on my...


I believe this vehicle is equipped with a shift lock that necessitates depressing the brake pedal before it can be shifted out of "Park". This is a safety feature designed into almost every car made nowadays to prevent unintended movement of the vehicle when shifting out of "Park". The Shift Lock solenoid is triggered by the brake light switch located near the top of the brake pedal arm. Starting with the "basics", check to see if the brake lights are working (they should illuminate when the brake pedal is pressed. If the brakes lights do not come on. then proceed to check the brake/stop light fuse. Replace if needed. Once the brake lights are functioning, the shift lock should "disengage" and allow you to shift out of "Park" when the brake pedal is pressed. If the fuses are okay, but still no brake lights, then the Brake Light Switch may need to be replaced.

Brake lights working but won't shift out of "Park"? Check for a separate fuse for the Shift Lock Solenoid. Replace if needed. Otherwise the Shift Lock Solenoid may need to be replaced. This will require disassembly of the console to access the part.
