There is a auto lock which keeps it in PARK position until released by the user, generally done with a Button which is pressed by the thumb. It's a simple locking pin with a spring & a container.
Get that lock & button replaced a.s.a.p.(i.e the entire assembly if required, since this a equipment which is used most frequently other than locking the doors and turning the ignition) .................sodeep

2007 500. Shifter broke inside is a plastic. Plunger that has stuck and wont engage park or let my keys come out how do i bypass this


You disconnect it down at the transmission, and move the linkage manually. Doing so manually will engage the "park" position on the trans itself, but the wiring to release the key is connected directly to that shifter. The only way to "bypass" would be (_after_ disconnecting the linkage to the trans), disassemble the entire shifter from the console. You will find a switch. You simply need to engage the switch (or disengage it, depending on what position "park" would put the switch into)... Then you can remove the key. Seems to me it's easier to remove the car battery and simply use spare keys to lock the doors, until you can obtain a replacement shifter. You can even "block" the tires to prevent motion if you don't want to mess with the trans linkage until after you obtain a replacement shifter. (If I was there I'd get that to shift. I've done it before. I just can't explain how to do it. It's a pain-in-the-rear-jury-rig process, but it can be done).

Stuck in park what causes it and how do you fix it?


possible causes:
-on a hill without parking brake engaged, causing vehicle to jam into park. This can be fixed by pushing the car rearward while having an assistant shift out of park-with engine off. Be careful, and be prepared to hit the brakes soon as park is disengaged.
-shifter assembly locked in park. Look in owner's manual for park release button. Chances are the shifter assy needs replacing.
-linkage disconnected or shifter cable binding or broken.

Ignition switch will not engage/turn to start car


Hi Beth usually when shifter is stuck there is a locking mechanism and keeps shifter from engaging unless brake is depressed to release the lock. If you hear a clicking sound when pedal is depressed then switch is probably ok and its probably the steering wheel lock. First try with your spare key to start the vehicle(old key may be worn ). If that doesn't do it then try with WD 40 a very little in ignition key hole or on the key work it slowly and see what happens. If none of these suggestions work its probably the steering wheel lock and that requires surgery. Keep me post best of luck

Don't know about needing the brake pedal pushed to get INTO park, but it might, as the pedal needs to be pressed to get it OUT of park.

97 mazda 626 wont shift from park. release button on side of shifter wont push in. removed knob, plastic rod in center wont move


The 1st thing you need to do is check the brake lights, if they are not wiorking the park lock solenoid doesn't get power and the park lock remains engaged.

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!
