I can not get my car to shift from park into drive, the handle will not move at all what can I do?


Actually the Shifter Interlock Lever needs replacing (MOPAR part #68088259AB). It's a little plastic piece that costs about $8.00 at the dealership. If you pop off the cover of the gear shifter, you can actually push in the plastic piece and shift out of park. Doesn't look like it'll be to hard to fix; part comes with a 11-step instruction sheet with pictures. I also have a 2005 300 with the same issue...

My 2005 Altima is stuck in park. Automatic transmission, low miles starts right up and steering wheel is not locked. Help please!!!

your owner's manual will tell you how to over-ride the shift lock. ususally there is a hole covered by a plastic piece, next to the shifter. pop out the cover and push the button to shift. The shifter will lock back up in park until you fix the problem. You may want to set the parking brake and use neutral when you park the car instead of " Park". That way you will not have to push the release button-it will eventually break.

make sure your brake lights work; as the shift lock is powered by the brake light fuse-replace as needed.

My 2007 Chrysler 300 starts fine but will not shift into any gear


I just finished repairing my 2007 - 300 for the same issue. Pulled in the garage.. went to go out , and could not get the shifter out of park. Researched this issue online.. First step is to remove the right side plastic holder next to the shifter. There is a small hole that has a pink plastic piece. Push this in while moving the shift lever out of park. If the shift lever does not move, then the other "pink thingy" piece that is located inside the shifter box has most likely broken. There is a tiny spring that attachs to this pink piece ( probably a $0.50 piece of poorly engineered product ) that breaks off. See the following link on how to fix this problem. I drilled a small hole in the pink plastic piece where the small hook broke off.. then attached a cotter pin through the hole , and fastened the spring to that... should not have any further problems.. this link demonstrates how to remove the shifter box. The entire process took me roughly 2 hrs to complete... saved myself hundreds of repair dollars!!http://www.300cforums.com/forums/tech-tips-review/61876-tech-tip-review-park-lock-out-mechanism-installation.html

Chrysler sebring is locked in park


Had this happen to me yesterday.  Remove the liner in the cup holder.  There is a hole that you can stick your finger in to push the gear release lever forward.  If that does not work, pull up the chrome bezel around the gear shift.  there is a pink piece of plastic attached to a spring, push that down and towards the rear of the car and you should be able to shift freely until you put it in park again.  Make sure the car is running and your foot is on the brake while trying either solution.

Shift geers stuck in park on 2004 aztek how do i unlock them truck will start up but stuck in park


There is a little gizmo called the BTSI (brake trans-axle shift interlock) that is usually the culprit for this problem. It is located sorta under and towards front of shifter.

t sounds like it could be two or three things:

1) Your park shift interlock isn't working. I think you are on the right track mentioning you had your foot on the brake. Usually, when one steps on the brake with the car in park, the interlock solenoid (BTSI) will "click" as it releases. Do you hear the solenoid? Perhaps the brake switch isn't working or is mis-aligned. It is up under the dash near the pedal hinge point. Do your brake lights come on? If so, the solenoid should be getting the signal it needs.

2) Another way the problem can occur is if you park on an incline and do not set your parking brake before you shift the transmission into park. Failure to set the parking brake first allows the weight of the car to roll against the "parking pawl" in the transmission. The weight of the car would bind things up. Going to have to rock the car up the hill to relieve the strain, something that would take another person if the incline was steep. In your case, you'd have to leave your foot off the brake to move the car to relieve the strain, then put your foot on the brake to engage the interlock.

Good luck, keep me posted

There is a bypass for the safety switch, unfortunately you have to remove the shift cover, the whole plastic piece. there is a white "lever" that you can push that will move the pin out of the way so you can shift it, you have to hold the piece and move the shifter at the same time. it is on the right side of the shifter base (under the plastic piece) you will see what I mean when you remove the center piece.

93 Mercury Tracer will not shift out of park.


This is probably happening because, underneath your shift console, there is a lever that keeps you from shifting from park without the keys in. The best way I found to fix this was, there are 6 screws, that keep you from getting to it, they are pretty visible, two right in front of the passenger and driver seat, 2 closer to where your feet would be if you were sitting in those seats, and two at the back of the e-brake console. Take this entire plastic off and you'll find that when you sit in your passenger seat, you can see a piece that is most likely dirty from spilled drinks and such, and if you push it, it may not budge, this is a solenoid, this is that piece that is keeping you from shifting from park, I recommend keeping and cleaning the solenoid if your solenoid is not completely corroded, in my case, I had to just destroy the entire thing.

The reason that solenoid piece is why you can't shift from park is because you have that solenoid piece, underneath your shifter, and when you push the button, it's hitting the solenoid. The reason for this is, the fact that your shifter uses a small cylindrical piece to guide and stay in gears, and that small cylindrical piece is probably hitting your solenoid.

Cant get shift out of park


the shiter interlock has broken at the shifter...pull the cover from the shifter and locate the then wire at the front left side of the assembly...start the vehicle...apply foot brake,,,push rearward on the plastic piece the cable attaches to at th shifter...and pull into gear.
this not a repair...the only true fix is to replace the shifter assembly
