I had this problem. Purchased a brake switch that fits against the back of the brake pedal arm. It has a small plunger that fits against the top of the pedal arm and plugs into a power source. Hard to get to, but only cost me $18. The switch releases the shifter. No problems since.

SOURCE: After backing out of drive,

After I asked shop to check my 2002 LEXUS ES300, trunk release switch is not working. The shop owner said, he did not touch there, only check passenger side air bag. I checked in glove box, but switch is push in (turn on). Now, it only works with the key and remote. How can I fix this?

I cannot shift the selector level out of parking position to other position even though the brake pedal is de-pressed.


Don't know make and model but try putting your key in the slot if you have a floor shifter and see if that releases it cable probably broke you will have to leave car in nutral and set parking brake or get a spare key to leave in the slot

Shift lock parking break


ck if your brake lights are working, if not, ck the fuse. if fuse is good and brake lights work, could be problem with solenoid not unlocking the lever, there should be a bypass so you can get it into gear (small slot near shifer, put your key in there to release shifter)

Car will start but gear shift is locked


follow instructions in manual for SHIFTLOCK RELEASE

Turn off car.
Engage Parking Break
Take ignition key and put into shift lock release slot (near gear shift)
Push down on key and at same time MOVE gear shift to neutral.
Remove key, start car as normal and disengage parking break...

good to go.... mechanic can replace/repair if this is an ongoing issue: $85 I read somewhere...but heard it's not hard to do yourself for $35 someone else wrote.

Goodluck
