Sounds like you will need a new Brake Transmission Interlock Switch.

On a 96 Jaguar XJ6, the gear selector sticks in the park position when startin


i presume this is a x300 series, you should hear a click from the gear selector area when you press the brake pedal with the ignition on, if not the park release soleniod is not working, the common cause of this is the brake pedal switch faulty, you can manualy release it by removing the little star shaped plug near the gear lever and inserting a small object like a screwdriver or your key, then select N and start engine,

Subaru 1995 wont go into gear


There is a small solenoid under the shifter cover that holds the shifter in park until you step on the brake that's not working all the time. It could be the brake light switch on the brake pedal is bad. Check to see if your brake lights are working correctly when you step on the brakes. If they are working right then that's not the problem and you will have to take the cover off the shifter and check to see if the solenoid is working when you step on the brake. I have seen bad or corroded connections at the plug due to liquids being spilled on the shifter. Sometimes the mechanical linkage is bent up from something getting in there through the slot that the shifter moves in. There is a little hole in the shifter cover that says manual release or some such thing. Usually it has a little plug that you have to pry off to remove with a small screwdriver. Then you put the little screwdriver in the hole and push down. That will release the lock so you can shift it. (It's used to shift the car when the battery is dead or missing)

I started the car and it I can't get it out of park. The parking brake is not on. I pressed the brake obviously before trying to put it into gear. Everything else seems fine. Suggestions??


Yes, stick with a manual transmission. But often with newer automatics there is a release button under a little cover on the side of the console. When you get stuck in Park you get the car towed to a Dodge dealer, they open the little cover, push the button, send you on your way, and send Dodge a warranty bill for $50.00. You are only out the tow fee, some time and of course some aggravation that they would not tell you that over the phone.

My gear shift is stuck in park


i first have too ask if your'e on an incline/decline. if so its torchlock. which means there is alot of pressure on the gear (the wieght of the car). in whch you will have too have someone too rock your car back/forth until you can pull it out of gear. if not on an incline/decline your cable from your brake pedal to your shifter could be broken disengaged. take your ignition key an put it in the little slot on the panel where your shifter is located, push down and pull the gear out of park. the slot may be hid by a little small cover that prys off pretty easily. its there to keep thieves from pushing your car down the street if they cant strart it

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.

Shift gear is stuck on park and can't get it out of gear.


Hi there,

There are multiple things that must all happen in order for the shifter to move from park.

1. Make sure the key ignition switch is in the "Run" position (the position just before the "start" position).

2. Brake pedal is depressed (usually pushed in a couple of inches or more at least to release the button on the shifter).

3. Push in the button on the shifter and pull back (you may need to push the shifter slightly forward or back a little for the button to move freely).

If the button on the shifter still doesn't push in freely, there is a problem with the mechanical lock-out linkage or electronic switch that releases the button lock. Check under the dash area along the brake pedal arm for anything that doesn't look correct.

4. If the car is on an incline/slope/hill, it will put a lot of pressure on the parking pin in the transmission. Usually a strong tug or pull on the shifter will pull it out while you're pushing on the brake pedal to prevent rolling when it releases. Make sure to set the parking/emergency brake first to prevent this next time .

Good Luck!!

Thanks

The gear-shifter solenoid or brakelight switch has failed.

To check the brakelight switch, start the car and step on the brake. If the brakelights don't come on, the switch is faulty. You'll find the switch under the dashboard above the brake pedal.

If the brakelights came on, your shifter solenoid is probably bad. In this case, here's a quick-and-dirty fix to get you moving...

Look for a small plastic cover next to the gear shift. Pop this off with a fingernail or small flat screwdriver. There will be a hole beneath the cover. Push a small screwdwiver down that hole untill you feel some resistance. You should now be able to shift out of park.

Be warned...this trick allows a shift even without touching the brake. So get the solenoid fixed as soon as you can.

Good luck !

Will not shift out of park


Chances are you're parked on a hill. You need someone to push on the car to take the pressure off the parking pin in the transmission. The other possible problem is there is a solenoid the won't release the gear shifter until the brake pedal is depressed. If you are pushing the brake pedal before trying the gear shift there is a malfunction in this system. This is not as easy to fix. If you aren't mechanically inclined I recomend taking that to a mechanic. If you are so inclined let me know and I can help guide you thru the steps.
