Hi there.
can you hear a clicking noise near the selector when you press the brakes?
i suggest you check the brake light if is working or not,
press the brakes and someone look at the brake lights if they comes ON, if the lights not coming ON, you have to check brake light power feed and fuse first, if is OK you need a new brake light switch.
if the brake light is working that means you have a problem with the selector lock solenoid.
Good luck

SOURCE: I bought a new hyundai accent back in 2006, after

Hyundia are the best car in the world. Sorry, but they are getting better. I haven't heard of a harness issue. anyway the coils have the ground in common, but the hot wires are separate. probably got there coil packs from china( junk). And I have seen coil packs break down one after the other on different models. Hopefully the dealer is using a better grade of coils. You might even ask them to go ahead and replace the rest of them, seeing there is an issue there. You just never know.

2004 pontiac sunfire wont shift out of park


Problem with shift interlock system .
Automatic Transmission Shift Lock Control Description and Operation
The automatic transmission shift lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the engine is running. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of the PARK position. The system consists of the following components:
?€¢
The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid


?€¢
The body control module (BCM)


?€¢
The powertrain control module (PCM)

With the ignition in the ON position, battery positive voltage is supplied to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid receives a ground from the BCM. When the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is energized, the shift lever mechanically locked in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal the PCM sends a class 2 serial data message to the BCM. The BCM turns OFF the ground control circuit and this de-energizes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. When the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is de-energized, the shift lever may be moved out of the PARK position. The BCM determines transaxle shift lever position through a class 2 serial data message from the PCM. The PCM receives inputs from the park/neutral position switch and determines shift lever position. When the BCM receives this information and determines that the shift lever is out of the PARK position, the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid ground is opened.

The gear stick on my 2004 saab is blocked. why?


Before you try to fix anything, try applying the foot brake really, really, really hard when you shift out of park. If that makes it better, take it to a mechanic for adjustment.

Reset computer disconnecting battery


get in a mobile mechanic with a scan tool that has the right protocols for GM products and reset the ECM
disconnecting the battery causes more problems than it fixes because it automatically energizes the immobilizer system and then corrupts the CPU in the ECM

Gear shift locks in park and will not move. Had vehicle toured to ford or lincoln dealer 2 times and was told they can not find problem but did get gear shift released by replacing it once but still have...


Contact Lincoln owner relations. There is a switch on the brake pedal which releases the Park setting. This switch can be hit by the driver's feet over and over again.

So if your feet hit the switch and break it or move it the problem will repeat.

It started with the loss of my cruise control. I had no problems with shifting out of park. Came home put the car in to reverse and shut it down. 30 minutes later, started the car, I can move the lever...


Sounds like the cable from the shift lever to the transmission has broken or come loose. You may have to get it towed in to a dealer to have it fixed.

My 2007 seabring won't shift out of park... Car


The car is probably on a steep hill and a lot of pressure is on the park pawl in the automatic transmission. If this is the case, a hard sudden pull should release it. Make sure the brake is on. When parking on a hill in the future use the parking brake before placing the lever in park.

94 Sonoma 4x4 won;t lock into 4WD.


yea its not shifting again like before ? sounds like your transfer case solonoid has possably gone bad again .. these are a sometimes dont work item .. It is what shifts the transfer case into gear and it might be a little worn or weathered and not letting the switch kick it in gear all the way from the N position. thanks Jerry holler if you need more.
