Many new cars have stuff interconnected. I've seen some that want you to press on the brake to get it out of park, put it in park to get the key out of the switch, etc. The cruise control is disconnected by the brake, and the car will beep at you if you leave anything on and try to take the key out.
Check with your owner's manual about your car's preferences. If the car is not properly in park or neutral, it won't start.
in the car wash turn off engine and leave shifter where you had it and car will go thru as if in neutral. then put it in park and crank to leave. the car will only start in park or neutral. you can find neutral by trying to start in all other position except park
Try putting the car in neutral and turning key if that does not work try turning steering wheel with a little force while turning key try this in park also. if this was helpful please leave me good feedback
replace the park/neutral switch. The switch is mounted to the transmission. After installing the new switch, leave the screws a bit loose, set the parking brake, turn on the key, and put the transmission in reverse. Adjust the switch by rotating until the backup lights are on, and then tighten the screws.
ask at the dealer i think it may only need a new stop light switch but i could be wrong ,how about leaving the car in neutral ,does key come out then as should do but later cars like this it might not work in neutral though
you should be able to pull key out in neutral. It sounds like a brake pedal issue not making contact with switch for shifter. Happens a lot actually. Until you can get serviced do it like a manual for now and as I stated you should be able to pull keys out. Its a button behind brake pedal. Try pusing it but leave car in park. Its usually a green and black switch. Leave car e brake on though. Safety reasons. Hope this helps
There is a switch on the side of the trans called a neutral safety switch. It only allows starting in park or neutral. the switch probably needs replacing. The next time you have a problem starting, try shifting to neutral to see if it will start. To do so, leave the key in the on position, apply the e-brake and shift into neutral.
The park pawl is spring loaded and it sounds like that spring has broken. The problem is, the trany has to be removed from the car and completely disassembled to fix it. The linkage for park is all mechanical, the transmission could be completely out of fluid and park should still work. I guess, I would get into the habbit of setting the park brake, then put the car in park and pull it out of park, before you release the park brake. You could also leave the shifter in the neutral position and set the park brake. This will allow you to start the car but you won't be able to remove the key. Hopefully the brake cables are not all rusted up. Good luck.
