Your transmission shifter is controlled by the "shift interlock system". You blew the fuse that controls it. I'm guessing that your radio also does not work?

The fuse you need to replace is for the cigarette lighter - it's in the driver side kickpanel. It controls the lighter, the radio, and your shift interlock system.

The "Stop" fuse could also create the same problem, because your car must register the brakes as being depressed before it will let you shift out of park. Check both those fuses first. One of them is likely your issue.

Good luck.

You probably have a bent park pin, or need the shift linkage adjusted

SOURCE: shift lever not shifting out

If your shift lever is on the stirring colum, there is a button in the colum itself directly underneath the lever that usually retracts whrn you press the breaks, but in this case it isn;t. Simply remove the right portion of the stirring colum and press the button and put in gear while holding it that is a quick solution on putting it in gear but it is not a permenent fix.

When I turn the ignition switch to start the vehicle I often cannot shift the stick shift out of Park. If I immediately try to switch gears after starting the engine it usually works but if I leave it more...


ok the safety feature on an auto gearbox is that the gear select has a solinoid lock on the shift & you norm have to start engine first before you can select drive now if the engine is running & not allowing you to select a drive then for some reason the solinoid is losing its signal or going faulty or even the shaft needing a little lube IE: wd40 now my volvo won't even allow me to take the key out untill its in park hope this helps

My jeep wrangler 2008 - I shifted to reverse then to parking, when i release the breaks it kept going in reverse. So i turn off the engine. now it wont start the engine, neither the shifter will move


The shifter cable has broken more than likely ,Find the shift shaft on the transmission,,block the wheels and remove the shift cable from the shift shaft,put the gear shift in park,then shift the shift shaft in park,then it will start,Then of course you will have to replace the shift cable.

1997 Carolla- engine dies when shift to reverse or drive, starts again when put in park. Is this a transmission problem or starter/ignition problem?


There is a switch that only only allows you to start the engine in Park or Neutral. It sounds as if yours is faulty or has a bad connection. Finding it will be the problem.

The parking light estay in reverse ,when is on parking and dont start the engine


Your shift indicator is out of alignment or your shift linkage is out of adjustment. If you have the shift lever all the way up and are sure it has locked into park try shifting to Neutral and see if you can start it in neutral. If it starts this is a simple adjustment. if it doesn't you will need to replace the neutral safety switch or have the TCM repaired at a transmission shop.

I can't get my Gear Shift our of Park. The engine


Common problem.

In future, when on put it in park only AFTER the handbrake is applied. Ideally, foot brake, shift to N, apply handbrake, release foot brake, shift to park.

If the incline isn't steep have someone push car uphill while you gently move gearshift shift out of park. If its a steep hill, call a tow truck and move to a level surface. The parking pawl in the transmission becomes groved over time (and sticks) unless you use the handbreak as described.

My 97 F250 wont shift out of park? Engine starts,


most likely your brake switch is out. If you had a scanner you would be able to see if the computer see's you pressing on the pedal. Or if you know how to test you could check to see if it switches ( completes the circuit ).
