Don't use that mechanic anymore. What he said is wrong just replace switch. The gear shifter and brake switch separate from each other

Ford crown vic stuck in park


ok you can have a few things wrong. First have some one step on brake pedal see if brake lights come on. If not these vehicles were bad about the wires braking to the brake light switch. After check ing lights and you have found the are operating correctly, try turning igintion key cylinder to first notch just before dash lights come on, now see if you can shift out of park if so the shift interlock solienod on back of column is bad. Lastly if the sifter is really loose they are two 30 torx screws on the back of the column hold the bracket to the shift cable, if that comes off or loose you can not shift as well. Hope this helps if so please vote thank you

HOW TO FIX GEAR SHIFT STUCK IN PARK? HYUNDAI ACCENT


in order for your car to come out of park,the brake lights have to come on. it's a safety feature. are your brake lights coming on?if not then check for a blown brake light fuse in the fuse panel. if not that the brake light switch above the brake pedal may have gone bad.or another solution is, are you parked in a bind? with alot of pressure on the transmission? it will take 2 people to get it unstuck. 1st person in car with key on,2nd person rock car back and forth to free it from a bind. sometimes cars[automatics] do this.while the cars rocking try shifting out of park.hope this helps and thank you for choosing fixya.com

I have a 2001 chevy s-10 that will not shift out of park . I can move the shifter freely,but it will not shift. this is a column shifter.


There is a safety feature on these trucks that makes you depress the brake pedal so you can put the truck in gear, but if you look under the shifter if it is in the floor (console) you will see a solenoid under the shifter. You can over-ride the solenoid by pressing in on the white or cream color clip on the right side of the shifter.this will pull the set pin out towards the passenger side and allow you to put the truck into gear. This is called a shifter lock solenoid. You have to replace the whole shifter assembly if its not shifting out of park. It had to do with the safety feature of the brakes being applied before the car will shift into park. check out the brake switch wire.if its having a cut in between or a loose connection in between this problem can occur. There is a solenoid that locks the shifter in park until you press the brake.Try checking that solenoid and its associated circuitry. also check the brake light switch,you might have a bad brake light switch. the brake light switch releases the shifter lock mechanism.
It's called the shift interlock feature. It's triggered by the brake switch so make sure the brake lights are coming on when this happens. If you have no brake lights, then you will have to test for power in and out of the brake light switch If the brake lights are working, then you'll have to get to the solenoid in the console or column. Disassemble as much as you have to to access the solenoid near the shifting mechanism. Us a 12v test light to test for power arriving at the solenoid when the brake is applied. If power is arriving and the solenoid is not triggering, the solenoid is bad.
This will help. Thanks please keep updated.please do rate the solution positively .thank you for using fixya

I have a Hyundai Accent 2000, My shift is locked in Park unless I use shift lock over ride?


i would check the wires on the brake switch, make sure you don't have a broken wire. if the wires look good tap on the brake switch and then try putting it in to drive if it works then yomight need the replace the brake switch. but also that all of your fuses are good. somtimes that will do it also. try that good luck

My 2002 ford excort will not shift out of park unless you use the shift override button. The fuse for this circuit is good.


Are your brake lights working? A common cause of this problem is the brake lamp switch being disconnected or having a bad switch. One problem that I have seen a LOT is broken wires near the brake lamp switch due to the installation of aftermarket accessories that tie into the brake lamp circuits.

My gear shift will not budge from park. It has done this before, but only for a couple of tries. what can i do?


It is most likely due to your gearshift interlock. This is there to make sure that you have your foot on the brake before shifting out of park. ( It is a nice safety feature that keeps little kids from shifting the vehicle because they can't reach the brake and shift the car at the same time.) If you are stepping on the brake when you are trying to get it out of park and it still won't go, the most likely cause is a bad brake lamp switch or brake lamp fuse. Check your brake lights to see if they are working. If not, fix the brake lights and your shift problem will likely be solved. If the brake lamps are working, then the Shift Lock Solenoid could be defective.

2005 hyundai Accent, can't shift out of park and no brake lights


may want to check the brake pedal switch located on top of the brake pedal arm. If all fuses looks good, replace the brake pedal switch, which can also cause to not shift out of park.

My 2005 hyundai accent wont shift out of park unless i use the shift lock override. any advice?


on most cars when u step on the brake pedal youll hear a "click" near the center console which is the shift solenoid releasing the "lock" on the floor shifter allowing the shifter to come out of park.check to make sure all the fuses are good and check the brake lite switch(es) and wiringfrom brake lite switch to shifter solenoid.a wiring diagram always helps.

Car will not shift from park


Start the engine, push the brake pedal. Have someone look to see if the brake lamps light up. If they do not light up, the fuse to the brake lamps is blown, or the brake lamp switch is bad. The brake pedal switch sends power to the shifter lock. The lock retracts only when the brake pedal is pressed.
