Ther is an electric solenoid in the shifter the fuse may have blown but if you have ever spilled anything sweet ,soda juice etc it will get sticky and gum up not letting it operate as designed check fuses first, if fuse is good then go to solenoid

SOURCE: 2008 Dodge Avenger. Cannot shift gear out of

Try the override - remove cup holder rubber liner and stick your finger in the hole to depress the button. See owners manual.
If this doesn't work than your tiny spring has come off the broken hook on the shifter assembly. Replace it by drilling a small 1/16th hole in the pink lever and reattach a new spring. better than a new one with the cheap tiny hook that keeps breaking.

2008 dodge avenger stuck in park but cluster reads neutral


First thing to do is check and see if the brake lights work, the brake lights power the release solenoid so you can move the gear selector from part to the desired gear.

Why doe's a 2008 dodge avenger shug when it put in gear


I'm not certain what SHUG means. Can you offer a better description?

It is normal for there to be a slight bump when shifting from park to drive, especially when very cold. Something I do that helps is to shift from park to neutral and wait a few seconds before shifting to drive. That seems to ease the process of shifting to drive. Also, check the fluid when the engine is warm and idling in Park. If low, add only the necessary amount.

Its the Shift Park Lockout mechanism. You can watch a video on you tube from Billets. They make a replacement part that is not as fragil as the plastic one from the factory.

2008 Dodge avenger that is getting stuck in park, over-ride is not working either


The spring come off inside the shifter assembly. It hoods to a small pink, plastic thing that isn't worth 2 cents. If you remove all the shifter covers, you can pull it back with your finger while shifting to allow it to shift. I had to reattach the spring.

2008 Dodge Avenger. Cannot shift gear out of


first thing I check is if the brake lights work.

a trick that works on some cars is turn the key to one notch before "run", shift into neutral and start. then take it to the dealer, it's under warranty, right?
