Shifter assemblies are a common problem with these vehicles (floor shift models). An audible click should be heard in the shifter area when the brake pedal is depressed (if not, you may have an electrical issue in the btsi curcuit, see a qualified repair facility). Hope this helps you, good luck

Elantra won't start and moves when it's in park


I'm going to say something happened to the cable between the shifter and the transmission. There is a switch on the transmission that prevents you from starting the engine in anything other than park or neutral. The transmission is probably in reverse or drive which would allow it to roll.
Someone would need to check the lever on the trans where the shift cable is attached.

99 mercedes-bens c-230 wont shift out of drive


There is a safety device that operates off of the brake pedal that maybe is not working properly. When shifting transmission depress brake pedal. Try this, depress brake pedal as far as it goes, turn key to off position as if you are goig to remove, while pressing on brake try shifting transmission to park. I hope this helps.

Parked on a inclined driveway so I went 2 release da car from park into 2 reverse n the shift won't move at all please help me


Sounds to me like there is too much weight on the "park" gear. Have someone push the car forward a little bit, and do it gently, to release some of the pressure on the transmission, and it should shift from Park without a problem. I highly recommend if parking on an inclined driveway, or any hill, to use the parking brake if it is possible to do so. Good Luck

your problem lies in the internal parts of your transmission which are the clutch linings, they are already worn out and starts to slide.

My gear shift is stuck and will not move from park to reverse. I had backed out the car and turned it off. when I went to move the car, my gear shift will not move out of the park position.


do the brake lights work? the system has a lock out that keeps you from moving out of park unless the brake circuit is activated, hence no brake lights no park lock out release, if the brk lights do work u most have a stuck or defective park lock out solenoid.

Won't shift out of park


Look to see if the brake lights work. If they do not come on when the brke pedal is depressed, the fuse may be blown. The brake electrical circuit also controls the shift interlock. You can take the vehicle out of park manually by removing the small square trim tab by the shifter, and pressing the button under it.
