How to disengage shift interlock when shifter stuck at P

It's stuck at P most of the time and I have to wait 40mins until it back to normal. I know that must be the shift interlock. Can anyone show me how to manually disengage shift interlock or simply remove the shift interlock? With photos of the progress, please

Info on the shift interlock is usually found in the owners manual. If the solenoid that locks the shifter into park fails or the switch that activates it (probably located on the brake pedal since you have to step on the brake to select a drive gear) fails there is usually a way to manually override the system. Your owners manual should have that information.

Or ...do some sleuthing on line with a search engine. Just about guaranteed you are not the only Range Rover owner on the planet this has happened to.

Gear shift will not move. I start engine, place foot on brake, then button on the side of shifter releases. But shifter will not budge. it stays in park.


Shift interlock solenoid not working and will not disengage parking lock, remove center console, locate shift solenoid, test it, if bad replace it. In the meantime you can use a zip lock tie to hold it in the disengaged position and your shifter should work.

Stuck in park gear


shifter cable, linkage, or fuse for shift interlock....should be an access hole to manually disengage it, usually around where the shifter comes out(on a floor shift model)

Auto will not disengage from park.


ok, other than the obvious question of are you applying the brake before shifting my next would be does the gear shift move at all? If it does is there any resistance or not? If there is no resistance it is possible that the shift cable is broken. Also is the shifter on the column or in the center console? If it is in the center the plunger that allows the shifter to move may be stuck or broken. There is a clip that holds the handle on, remove the clip and ensure the button on the shifter handle is moving and pressing down on the nylon piece that "unlocks" the shifter. Lastly the problem could be with the "shift interlock" which is a cable that ties the shifter to the brake pedal. If the interlock is damaged it will prevent the vehicle from shifting from park. I hope i have helped in some way.

My shift lever is stuck in park, no matter what I do I can't release it from park. Any ideas?


if the shifter is on the floor there is a little piece of plastic covering a small hole to disengage the emergency shift lock solenoid.Take a small object like a paper clip and press down in that hole and this should unlock it for now.THe main cause of this is a faulty shift interlock control solenoid.good luck and i hope this helps

Key stuck


Hello. Your problem is in the area called Brake Transmission Shift Interlock (BTSI). The shifter assembly in the console has a switch-solenoid (shift interlock) that has to send a release signal to the key release solenoid in the steering column. Replacement of the shifter assembly or shift interlock solenoid normally resolves the problem. regards, Joe

2005 Dodge Magnum STX is stuck in park. Brake lights work, I can feel shift knob loosen but not disengage from park. Do you think it might be part of "the cup plug that retains the park pawl anchor shaft"...


The BTSI (Brake Transmission Shift Interlock) has a small spring retainer on the park safety. A small plastic tab breaks & releases the spring. This requires the shifter to be disassembled in order to be repaired (unless yours is under warranty).

Repaired mine Sunday May 1st and can provide detailed instructions if desired.

If you are lucky, your brake interlock is the only problem. There is a bypass switch located beside the gear selector. Remove the small "cubby" bin located next to the gear shift by simply lifting up to remove. You will note a small access port and a pink button contained therein. Press the pink button to override the brake interlock.

If you still cannot shift into park, then the shifter must be removed for the spring repair. Even if yours is still under warranty, you will get another shifter that will eventually fail due to poor engineering.

Please let me know if you would like my assistance.

Shifter stuck and key will not come out of ignition


yes, there is a light and they may have just forgotten to plug it back in, it should be accessible from the small compartment next to the gear shift, if not, remove the surrounding console and you should be able to find it. there should be 2 lights in there. 1 for the small compartment and another for the gear shift. if it is plugged in check the globe to see if its blown. as for the "little shift interlock mechanism" i would suggest taking it back to the shop and asking them to make sure everything was fastened and tell them you can hear it rattling around. you never know, it may be the wires and plug for your gear shift light.
