1998 Hyundai Elantra wagon shift lock sticks

1998 Hyundai Elantra wagon: My shift lock sticks sometimes in park. I work with it (well, get mad and jiggle it too much) and maybe after about 5 minutes of frustration it will finally shift into reverse. Any idea what is going on? Thanks.

Sometimes I can't get the trnsmission out of park. The button to select will not engage


I found that if you take a pencil and poke down in the Shift Lock Override hole located on the shifter console, you should feel slight spring pressure, gently push down until it bottoms out, while holding it down shift the shifter out of park. This is not the fix,but it could allow you to use your car until it can be properly repaired.The actual problem is the shifter lock mechanism is not working properly.

I have a 1998 hyundai elantra which will not shift out of park. The problem started gradually until now it will never shift from park to reverse.


It seems you have a defecive stop lamp switch. When pressing on the brake pedal, the switch activates a solenoid in the shifter column to release the shifter 'lock' mechanism.

Shift lock release worked...do I still need to take car in?


I think the shift inter-lock solenoid was stuck at the time. it can also be your brake switch did not make contact. next time check your brake lights to see if they work while it hapen. so just wait!
