There is a lock that is activated by the brake pedal. You should hear a click by the gear selector when you step on the brake pedal. If you don't hear the click then you probably have a cut wire that goes to the brake safety actuator

My suzuki verona 04, gear shifter is stuck on park, i have to hit the brakes severally for it to move to drive.


There is a lock mechanism that prevents moving shifter out of PARK unless your foot is on the brake. You can bypass this by sticking a small flat blade screwdriver or a key into the little slot on the console by the shift lever.

Are your brake lights coming on when you press the brake pedal?The shift lock is released electrically when your foot is on the brake, and the sensor is tied to the brake light switch circuit. The brake light switch can be seen if you look under the dash at the brake arm. First, check the connector. If the switch is out of adjustment, you can screw it in or out to adjust. Or just buy a new one.

Wont go into drive


A problem exists in the neutral safety switch, or the brake switch that tells the sensor the brake is on and allows it to shift into drive or other gear..there is a bypass for this ,if the shifter is on the floor, it ison the right side of shifter,you will need to remove the console cover, it looks like a silver button with a spring under it..If shifter is on steering column,,the cover will have to be removed,and the same buttonwill be visible...Replace the Brake neutral shift switch either way....about$37.50 and 3 hours work..Good luck

How do you replace drive indecator light


1. Lift the little carpet in the console rear to the automatic gear shift. Pry with a small flat screwdriver will do the job.2. Remove the three Philips head screws.3. Remove one Philips head screws on each side of the rear console, they are located at the bottom front of the rear console panel. You may have to move the driver and passenger seat back to see the screws.4. Grab the back of the rear console and gently wiggle, pull backward and lift upward. Pull the hand brake so it is easier to remove the loosened rear console panel. 5. Use a flat head screwdriver to pry the rectangular 'cushion' around the automatic gear shift. Gently pry at various spot and the rectangular 'cushion' will come off easily.6. Now you are just one more plastic cover away from the burned bulb. The plastic cover that has those 'P'ark, 'R'everse, 'D'rive letters is held in place by four snap on latches. Use a small flat head screwdriver and gently push the black latches inward in a downward motion, once the screwdriver head gets inside the grey latch holder it will free the black latch. Work on each of the four latches in turn.7. Wiggle the plastic cover until it is completely loosened from the four latches. Gently lift the plastic cover up. The automatic gear shift will stop the plastic from being lifted out completely. You still have enough room to work with. You will see the little burned bulb directly below those 'P'ark, 'R'everse, 'D'rive letters. Gently pull the bulb out. I got my replacement bulb at Canadian Tire, Motomaster instrument replacement bulb 194LL (clear, long lasting, 2 bulbs for $2.99Cdn). It is a push-on bulb.8. Test the bulb by starting your car and dash lights.9. Snap back the plastic 'P'ark, 'D'rive cover. Put back the rear console panel and finally the rectangular 'cushion' around the automatic gear shift.

Gear shift stuck in park - brake lights are working - we have checked all the fuses. How do we remove the cover on the shift panel?


First check for a loose vacuum hose to the brake petal. Most models use this safety for engaging the tranny by depressing the brake petal and then selecting the drive or reverse gear.

My gear shift i stuck in park


You can get it out of park as a temporary fix by popping off the little cover to the left of the gearshift, then pushing down on the lever beneath the cover with a flathead screwdriver (or skinny key) and then shifting out of park.

Car is stuck in Park. Will not shift after losing


Your car will only shift out of park with the brake pedal down. If this does not release it, there is a bypass switch that is located in your center console near your gear selector. You'll actually have to remove your center console in order to access this bypass switch.

I cannot get the gear to shift down


check the brake lights, the shifter has a safety feature that will not allow u to shift out of park if your foot is not on the brake and the brake lights are working, if the brake lights are working there is a bypass to get it out of park under a little cover next to the shift handle.
