Most cars you have to push brake pedal to shift out of park etc. the switch at brake pedal is bad or out of adjustment. God-Bless! Its at top of pedal arm.

Gear **** locked in park and button stuck

sounds like you have to take the console out and see if something is obstructing the shifter or gear release mechanism. Or something got broken or bent inside that shifter or the linkage. But you're gonna have to look more in depth by taking that console out.

Cant get my 2005 eclipse out of park

You probably have a problem with the safety switch on the brake pedal. It Usually has a manual bypass or release button some where on your shift assembly. You may need to refer to your owners manual or ask your dealer to help you find it. I learned this from my wifes nissan , had same problem. This would at least let you Drive the car to a garage.

I cant get my car outta park. When i press down the brake and press the knob i feel a clicking in the brake pedal. i cant get my car out of the park positon and need to get work any ideas whats wrong and...

there is a button right beside your shifter that will release the lock underneith the plastic arouns the shifter. remove the plastic rubber around the shifter and lift the plastic up. there will be a button you can press to release the shifter lock in cases of emergency. careful removing the plastic but may require some light prying action to get it off. hit the button with a srewdriver or key and move the shifter out of park. you will still need to be in park or neutral to start the car. the main problem is probably a park/neutral module, a bad shifter, or a brake pedal sensor

My 2003 Mitsubishi Eclipse Spyder's shifter has had problems "freezing" when it is very cold. This has happened a few times now. The button would not depress to allow it to come out of park....

This might seem weird but a lot of people like my daughter who has kids drop things into the floorboard which migrate to underneath the shifter console where those objects interfere with shifting! Just a thought.

Stuck in 'park'. When I got home and put the car

See a honda dealer or remove console to get to shifter solenoid. Also adjust cable to get key out of ign. We always would pull shifter back and push it foward firmly into park to get them to release key.

Key will not come out of ignition in 97 disco

I had this exact problem. The reason was the little push button on the automatic shifter that you press when you want to move it from Park - sometimes when you place it back to Park, it does not go out all the way - this prevents the key lock from releasing the key. Try to pull that button out all the way and it will release it. Cleaning around the button also helps.

2006 Chevy Impala stuck in park

When you turn ignition on it releases a cable that is attached to the shifter also the shifter has a solenoid attached to it that is released when you step on the brake. Both times that I had the problem of button stuck and cant shift out of park the solenoid was sticking and wouldnt release .
