SOURCE: shifter is stuck in park

The shift cable is off the lever on the trans...the dash indicator states drive but the shifter is in park. Look under the drivers side of the trans, next to the catalytic converter(make sure the truck is cooled off) the trans cable will not be attached to the tranny lever-re-attach and you will be able to get it home or to a shop for a repair. This happened to me already, simple fix.

As with most cars and trucks, if the shifter won't move out of park, one possible cause is a faulty brake switch or shift lock solenoid.
If the RV is on flat ground and the park pawl is not under heavy load, you may be able to shift out of park by unlocking the steering wheel but not turning the key to the on position. Make sure the parking brake is set before you try it.

Car will not start and shifter is stuck in park on 93 toyota corolla


Make sure the shifter is all the way in PARK. Try to start the car. IF not work, you could try jiggling the shifter while trying to start the car. (note: most shifters won't budge from park until the car is started for safety reasons). good luck. ALso try jiggling the steering wheel too while trying to start the car. If none of this works, then it might be that the ignition starter is bad and needs replacing. I can't guarantee any of this will work since I don't have all the details. If all else fails, take it in for repair!
Good Luck!

My 1997 ford taurus wont shift out of park. The shifter seams to be stuck, it wont move. The shifter is on the steering wheel not the floor.


This is often a switch located on the brake pedal lever. The car requires you to press the Brake pedal before shiftting out of Park. You lose the signal when a foot hits or breaks this part. Look under the dash for the part and fix it.

Could be a faulty brake light switch, or the solenoid for the shifter lock.

93 tempo


I had the same problem a few months back with my 93 Tempo. After fiddling with the battery, checking for spark, and messing with my distributor cap, I found the emergency fuel shut off reset button in the trunk. If you haven't already, open the trunk, and on the left hand side there is a recess with a largish red button. Press it. If it clicks, then your fuel injector shut off because it though it had been in an accident (mine happened right after pulling into my driveway, where I had bottomed out a little bit, so it doesn't take much to set it off). If it clicks, your car should start immediately
Hope it helps!
