Question about 1995 Subaru Impreza

Brake lights wont turn on

The car has a brake problem. The lights work fine when i get it into gear but sometimes it takes me an hour to get it into gear. I was thinking it was the transmission but it ran great whenever it did so i couldn't figure it out except that it was a picky car. It is a 1995 Subaru impreza and i have no idea what is happening to tell the car it cant go into gear because the brake is not on or the transmission is stuck.

If you look at the brake pedal you will find 1 or more switches connected to it. one of them has gone bad. you can test them yourself with a continuity tester and your local auto parts store will be able to get you a new one.

When this happens check the brake lights, are they on when the pedal is pressed? If not that is the problem.Your car has a park lock system, it is released by pressing the brake pedal but the lights must work or the Park lock solenoid is not powered up and doesn't release the shifter from park position.

My car wont shift into gear, while stepping on brake, anymore, we need to stick a key into the hole right on the console above the gear shift. Is this expensive to fix, what do we need


It can be as simple as a blown fuse. Do the brake lights work? The brake light switch turns on a soioid that ets you take it out of park. Theres a cable on colullum shifted cars that can break or come off but the brake light swich failing or even the high mount brake light bulbs being burnt out ( depending on what country the car was built for ) the don't what you driving if your brake lights don't work.

Car won't go in gear brake lights not working. replaced one switch on brake pedal already


If the brake light switch doesn't work then the solenoid that allows you to move the gear selector out of park is locked out, it is a safety feature required by law, jump the brake light switch with a paper clip ( verify the brake lights are on) and see if you can get it out of park, I am sure it will now come out, then either replace the brake light switch or the wiring to it, many times the wires to the connector of the brake light switch brake inside the plastic insulation, so the outside looks good but the connection is not there or comes and goes, I suspect this is the problem with your car. The solenoid I mentioned is on top of the steering column.
