SOURCE: shift gear is locked cannot shift out of park gear

I had the same problem but my cousing, who is a mechanic, opened the whole thing up and removed the safety catch. Now, this is not the best of ideas because the car will shift now without your foot being on the brake but I have had it this way for a while and no troubles shifting in or out anymore.

SOURCE: car will not shift into gear

Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.

SOURCE: car wont roll forward or back even in neutral

I assume it's a manual transmission.
If the car will not roll backward or forward in neutral (with or without the clutch engaged) the transmission is most likely locked in two gears at the same time.
This may happen if gear selectors are excessively worn. If you are able to examine the gear selection levers external to the gearbox, ensure they are in the 'neutral' (no gear selected) position when the gear lever is in Neutral. If not in correct position, you may be able to manually reset the levers to correct neutral position and thereby unlock the gearbox.
In any case, if it's happened once, it will happen again, so get the gearbox and gear selection mechanism checked for wear or breakage.

I have a 99 Lexus gs 300 and today the gear shift got stuck in drive i finally forced it into park and then i couldnt get it in gear again. The break lights work and the tow truck driver shoved a screw...


It's probably a problem with the shift lock system . This is a safety feature that won't allow you to shift from park into a gear unless your foot is pushing on the brake pedal . Brake switch sends a B+ voltage to a module (maybe) ,the module then energize's a locking solenoid ,to unlock the shifter . Google lexus shifter interlock .

My 1998 gs lexus 300, wont start i think it has something to do with the anti theft , help please!


Test the neutral safety switch.

===

Put your foot on the brake.

Move gear lever to "N"

Start the car

If it start then it's a defective neutral safety switch.

Shift to PARK and shut off engine.

I have the exact same problem. Does it hesitate of the start and then take off? I put an OBD II scanner on mine and it is saying that it is the 1st gear shift cellinoid. Cost's about $350 installed.
