Brake switch is broken or wire is loose check the wires on the brske pedal to see if they have come loose, if they have crip them slightly and slide them back on the sade terminals.

It's more likely to be a solenoid. Next to the Gearshift lever there is a small star headed screw. Undo this screw and spray a little bit of WD 40 down the hole. Replace the screw and then gently activate the lever in and out of park until the problem resolves itself. Inactivity leads to a sticky solenoid. If this doesn't fix it suspect a faulty solenoid.

1997 jaguar XK8 is stuck in park,it starts fine but cant move it out of park

Check your vin number and see if it is after A03098. Your MIL (malfunction indicator lamp) may be illuminated with a DTC P1571 trouble code. Your brake lights may be staying on or coming on without depressing the brake pedal.

These indicate that you need a revised/improved brake pedal switch assembly installed. Call your local dealer to see if they have a replacement program.

In the meantime, there is a plug on your shifter cover to the bottom right. This is your shift interlock override. Take the plug out and insert your key, depress the switch and shift out of park at the same time.

Why wont my car shifter shift out of park?

Does the engine start ? Is this a automatic transmission vehicle ? Do the brake lights work when you press on the brake pedal ? It probably has something to do with the Automatic Transmission Shift Lock
The brake transaxle shift interlock (BTSI) system consists of the body control module (BCM), powertrain control module (PCM), BTSI solenoid, stop lamp switch, and PRNDL selector switch. The BTSI system prevents the driver from moving the shift lever out of PARK unless the brake pedal is depressed while in RUN or CRANK.
The BCM controls the output to the BTSI solenoid by grounding the solenoid which energizes it, preventing shifting out of PARK. When the BCM receives input from the PCM over the Class II link that the transaxle is in PARK and the brake pedal is depressed, it will stop grounding the BTSI solenoid or de-energize it which will allow shifting. After the transaxle is moved out of the PARK position, the BCM shall monitor the status of the PRNDL serial data message sent by the PCM and shall continue to de-energize the solenoid until the transaxle has been returned to the PARK position.
In the event that the serial data messages are never received (approximately 5 seconds) by the BCM from the PCM, the BCM shall de-energize the solenoid to allow shifting. The transaxle can be shifted from PARK by placing the ignition switch in the ACC position. This eliminates power to the solenoid.

Jaguar gear shift is locked in park

most new cars have a brake depression that only allows the shift lever to be moved when the brake pedal is pressed

96 F250 can't shift out of park

NOTE: Your vehicle is equipped with a

brake-shift interlock feature. This

feature prevents you from shifting

from P (Park) unless you have the

brake pedal depressed. (The ignition

must be in the ON position.) If you

cannot shift from P (Park) with the

brake pedal depressed:

1. Apply the parking brake.

2. Remove the key.

3. Insert the key and rotate one position
clockwise (ignition in the OFF position).

4. Apply the brake pedal and shift to N

(Neutral). (If the vehicle is shifted to P

(Park), you must repeat the previous steps.)

5. Start the vehicle.

If you need to shift out of P (Park) by using the

alternate procedure described above, it is

possible that a fuse has blown and that your

brakelamps may also not be functional.




check fuse 13 based on the attached diagram.

If this fuse is bad replace it. If it is not bad, blows again, or continues to be stuck in park then you need a new brake interlock switch that can be found on the brake pedal up underneath the dash.mustang_guru_2.jpg

1997 ford truck cannot get it out of park. Replaced brake light switch assembly.

The shift interlock system prevents the shifting from PARK unless the brake pedal (2455) is depressed. The shift interlock system consists of a shift lock actuator (3Z719) mounted at the base of the steering column tube (3514). If the ignition switch (11572) is in the RUN position, the shift lock actuator is continually on unless the brake pedal is depressed. The shift lock actuator is the logical culprit. Check to see if it's getting voltage when the brake pedal is depressed. If yes: the unit is either faulty, weak or stuck. I can provide wire numbers and colors if necessary. I may need the engine size and Trans. code found on drivers door sticker. Good luck! Aoogha

2001 jaguar stype won't shift from park, what do I do?

The brake switch may be bad on the pedal. Brake lights may still work but signal to trans is lost somewhere. First make sure all fuses are ok. Then test the switch. Voltage should be present on one wire then with the pedal depressed the other wires should have voltage.

I can't drive

check and see if the brake light are working, if they are not the shifter is locked out by the brake park interlock solenoid, the common cause of this is a broken wire (wire looks ok many times and is broken inside insulating outer cover) to the brake light switch at the top of the arm the brake pedal is attached to.
