My gear shifter gets stuck in park..on my 2008 dodge caliber


All cars have a release button on the shift column for towing. Look for a little square or circle nee your shifter that you can pop the plastic piece off of. Usually you can stick a key or somethin to press the button down and put the car into any gear. I donf know if that helps you for now. You might also wanna make sure you have your foot on the brake when your tryin to put in into gear. Some. Newer carz wont lt you shift out of park unless you are pressing the brake.

2006 pt cruiser gear shift button stuck n can't completely take key out..but button pops up on all other gear except p n 1


On your shift console there should be a small button you pop out and can poke a toothpick in to release the shifter. If you see a little cap near it that looks like it has a small slot in it, pop that up and push the button. That will release the shifter. This may be stuck requiring you to either replace the button or take it in to have it repaired.

1998 arctic cat 300..... hard to shift you have to


I do not know much if anything about an arctic cat but if you have a shifter you have some kind of a transmission and if you need to get it into gear or neutral but cannot do so without rocking the machine or the shifter back and forth a slipping clutch would not likely have anything to do with the problem. You likely should not be trying to shift gears with the clutch engaged and the clutch normally should be FULLY slipping ie completely disengaged when you are shifting. It sounds like you could have sticking shifter linkage parts, worn shifter parts or internal transmission parts, bent shifter forks, worn shifter cam or drum grooves or shifter fork pins or other worn parts or maybe even low or no transmission fluid.

Vt shifter button


this is not an uncommon problem.
you will need to go to your local holden dealer and purchase a new gear shift button.
To fit the new gear shift button you will need to remove the centre console insert and the screw that holds the t-bar trim in position..

what is stuck?

the linkage or the cable from the shifter to the trans.?

block the tires so the car can not roll away...
open the hood and remove the cable from the shifter on the transmission.
see if you can manualy move the shifter on the trans.
if that moves... you may need to replace the cable (shift linkage)

Having a hard time putting my car in gear. It has to warmm up in order to engage the button on the shifter to put the car in gear.


The shifter knob that houses the button may be worn out or the shifter mechanism may need to be lubricated. You can try spraying a little WD-40 around the shift button and into the shift knob using the straw provided with the spray can.
To lubricate the shifter, the shift knob will have to be removed and the shift plate removed to gain access to the shifter mechanism.
Good luck.

Gear shift 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.

Car will not engage out of park then when it did the side button stuck in


I am having the same trouble with my 2004 sentra, above the gear shifter, (which in on the floor) there is a little plate, no bigger than the size of a fuse. If you pop off the little plate you can stick something in there while you shift out of park. Just remove the object after you shift out of park. It cost about $300 to fix it according to Nissan. I hope this helps
