My gear shift on my 2007 dodge magnum will not get out of park. Is there a way to temporarly fix it till i can get to a mechanic!?


The BTSI (Brake Transmission Shift Interlock) has a small spring retainer on the park safety. A small plastic tab breaks & releases the spring. This requires the shifter to be disassembled in order to be repaired.

If you are lucky, your brake interlock is the only problem. There is a bypass switch located beside the gear selector. Remove the small "cubby" bin located next to the gear shift by simply lifting up to remove. You will note a small access port and a pink button contained therein. Press the pink button to override the brake interlock.

If you still cannot shift into park, then the shifter must be removed for the spring repair. Even if yours is still under warranty, you will get another shifter that will eventually fail due to poor engineering

2005 Dodge Magnum STX is stuck in park. Brake lights work, I can feel shift knob loosen but not disengage from park. Do you think it might be part of "the cup plug that retains the park pawl anchor shaft"...

Car will start right up but will not go into gear


There is a possibility that the plastic pieces that allow the shifter to move and slide have broken. You need to remove the console shroud and pieces to be able to see the shifter. There should be two pieces of plastic usually pink or yellow in color with a spring attatched (the spring depresses when the button on the shifter is pressed). Sometimes these plastic pieces break and blocks the shifter from moving.

You can get a factory service manual with complete removal instructions and pictures from here. 2005 Dodge Magnum Service Manual.

Shifter is stuck in park


Billettechnologies.com sells a replacement cog to put your shifter backinto action. Their part replaces a factory plastic piece...no wonderthese are failing at a fast rate.
Here is the LINK to make this change out of parts...

Car won't shift out of park


I just repaired the same problem, several things could be wrong, first check the brakes and see if the brake light switch works, the next thing I would check then is the shifter box. Take the shifter molding apart till you are at the shifter box itself.Once you can see Inside the box you will see two parts that are pink , the one that is inside the box is the part that allows the shifter to move. get a small screw driver and move this part around. while the key is on and your foot is on the brake move the part and the shifter, it will come free. The problem is that there is a spring attached to this part and the spring breaks off. I took the shift box apart and then I secured the spring to the part with a key ring loop. you could probably use wire to attach the spring . It is working fine now.

Dodge magnum gear shift


I had the same problem. The interlock was not the problem. I had the shifter replaced (at my own expense because drive train warranty would not cover). After examining the old shifter discovered source of problem is a plastic cam on the front of ths shifter. A tiny PLASTIC ear which connects to a small spring had broken off. I repaired this by putting in a small screw where the ear had been. Incidentally, my tow truck driver had also seen the same problem on several Chrysler 300s. In my estimation this is a poor design on Chrysler's part.
