Gear shift wont shift from park


The park in this model is locked out by a pin, that pin is pulled back by an electric solenoid that is powered by the you guessed it, the brake lights. You either have a defective brake light switch (located above the brake pedal) or the connector to the switch is defective due to a broken conductor inside the wires plastic out insulating cover. It is a fairly cheap repair, You can override the lock out by turning the ignition key cylinder half way to the run position and wiggling the shifter at the same time, it may take a few tries but you can get it out of part this way.

How do i take a 96 pontiac boneville stearing column off, our ignition where the key will not turn on or off it is stuck but we need to know how to take the stearing column off


before doing this try pushing shift lever firmly upwards to park

other wise you need to removed stterig wheel and other omponents

if you never done one can get tricky take pictures as you go
also after repair is done test all operation in a area free of dangers
make sure all works

Car is in park on incline, and will not start.


There is a neutral safety switch to make sure car is neutral.If that switch went bad or becase your parked on incline the switch is not made up because car rolled back when you put it in park.If you can depending on the situation,put key in ignition,turn key till one click before it starts,apply emergency brake,depress regular brakes and shift car from park to drive then back to park.then turn off key and restart.If for some reason you try to shift out of park and it wont move you need to roll car a little forward or backward(have someone else do the pushing and be carefull not to put anyone in a pinch point between another car if this car is parked between two cars)With older cars this is usally the case.If this fixes your problem i would have a mechanic change switch because this will probrobly happen again.Be carefull.......

battery is dead, battery cables are loose, or your vehicle is not in park all the way. Put it into neutral and try to start it there.

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
