This is caused by a faulty relay in the break pedal. There is a switch in the break pedal that sends a signal to the shifter to release when the brake is pressed. For some reason Volvo's seem to have pretty flaky relays as they fail quite a bit. Some models (not sure what year yours is) have a key unlock next to the shifter that will allow you to bypass the relay. Look around the shift knob for somewhere to insert a key... You may not have one, either way you are going to want to get this care into a Volvo mechanic right away. It's not too expensive to fix but is necessary.

Thanks

Why it will not go into gear?


check to see if the brake lights are working. some cars have a lockout for the gear shifter that won`t allow you to shift out of park if they are not working. it is wired into the brake light switch so when the switch or fuse is not working then the car won`t shift out of park.

GEAR SHIFT STUCK IN PARK HAVE NO BRAKE LIGHTS


check the fuses as if the brake light fuse is blown it won`t allow the shifter to move out of park.it has a shift interlock system so the gear shift won`t accidentally be moved out of park by mistake.

My '97 grand prix wont shift from park. What is


Hi, you have a malfunctioning brake/park interlock. When you go to shift out of park, as you know, you have to hit the brake or the shifter won't jump out of Park into Reverse. The interlock device that in this system is probably failing.
