SOURCE: 1997 Lincoln Towncar. Shifter stuck in park

There is a switch mounted on the arm of the brake pedal (under a plastic cover held on with 3 plastic push-pins). There is an electical connection attached to this switch. In my case one of the wires had broken and was not supplying electricity to the switch. By fixing the broken wire it allowed the shifter to properly move and got the brake lights working again.

My 94buick park avenue can't shift out off parking level is locked


Are you talking about the trans shifter or the parking brake ?
If the shifter won't come out of park it could be the brake light switch or the shifter lock solenoid.
You may be able to shift out of park by turning the key to the unlock position but not to the on position, then crank the engine in neutral.

Shifting Out of Park Position


hi..

spaclear.gif A simple procedure to prevent being jammed in PARK on a grade:
  1. Do not put it in PARK until, with foot brake applied, you've secured the parking (emergency) brake.


  2. Before releasing the parking brake, apply the foot brake and move the shift lever to NEUTRAL or DRIVE.

Why does it get stuck in park


Chris: According to MyAutomaticTransmission.com: "Shifter Lever

Recognizing that you might one day find yourself in such a predicament, vehicle manufacturers incorporated a quick and easy method for manually releasing a shifter stuck in Park. Follow these 4 simple steps.

1. Set the emergency brake.

2. Locate the shifter lock override slot located on the shifter console near the shifter lever. Normally, the slot is plugged with a small plastic cap.

3. Remove the plastic cap covering the override slot and insert a key, nail file or similarly shaped object into the slot and push down.

4. While pushing down, depress the brake pedal, grab the shifter and push in the shifter lock button located on the shifter as you normally do and then move the shifter to the Neutral position. With the brake pedal still depressed, start the engine with the shifter in the Neutral position.

NOTE: If the shifter lever will still not move, repeat the process making sure to press down firmly on the locking mechanism and the brake pedal simultaneously as you attempt to move the shifter lever.


NOTE: Continuing to drive your vehicle in this condition will not cause any additional damage. You will just have to use this procedure to release the shifter each time you attempt to move the shifter out of the Park position." I hope this helps you!

Transmission shifter stuck in park


There are 2 locking mechanisms in the shifter assembly. One is mechanical and the other is electronic. The electronic lock is disengaged when the brake pedal is depressed. This is a safety feature to disallow you from shifting from park without applying the brake. Most people would think this is the problem because of the symptom. But in fact, it is most likely the following reason which has nothing to do with the brake lock.

This problem is inevitable in all vehicles that use this gear shifter, Charger, 300, and Magnum. It happened to me on both of my vehicles (Charger and 300) within 30 days of each other. Chrysler is aware of the problem and has redesigned the part. After analyzing the new part, I believe it will fail too. The part that is failing is made of plastic and has a very small nipple on it where a spring is attached. The spring keeps tension on the part to keep it rotated in a default position as the shifter enters park. The part is attached to the key assembly via a cable and prevents the removal of the key until the shifter is in park. This is also a safety feature to prevent the vehicle from rolling if not placed in park before removing the key and exiting the vehicle. When the part fails it mechanically jams the shifter in the park position.

Emergency Solution: remove the chrome bezel and use a screw driver with a shaft at least 6" long. You will see a slot around the entire shifter assembly. Slide the screw driver straight down in the slot at the most forward position and approximately one inch left of center. Start the vehicle, hold the break, and push forward on the screw driver while maneuvering the shifter out of park. By pushing the screw driver forward you are pivoting the bottom of the screw driver and applying pressure to the failed part rotating it into the position the spring would normally place it. This allows the shifter to be removed from park. The shifter will go back to the park position with out any assistance of the screw driver. This procedure will need to be repeated each time you want to move the shifter out of park. CAUTION: YOU CAN REMOVE THE KEY WHILE NOT IN PARK. THIS WILL ALLOW THE VEHICLE TO ROLL.

Permanent Solution: Replace the shifter assembly, although, I believe the new shifter will eventually fail. If you are mechanically inclined there is a better solution. Replace only the failed party with a stronger part. A company in Florida makes a duplicate part from aluminum and it should never fail. http://www.billettechnology.com/ Here's the part you need... http://www.custombilletstore.com/product_p/1028.htm

How do i adjust the shifter linkage on my 1981 blazer.It shifts into drive but not 2nd or 3rd


I will try to help.
I would get someone to shift the shifter inside to the park position to see the direction underneath of the
shifter on the tranny. Then loosen the cable to the
shifter on the tranny move the shifter on the tranny to the same direction you seen toward park to the last position on the shift mechanism. That should be the park position. now put the shifter in the park position and tighten and/or reattach the cable. you should be good now. Hope this helps

97 Celica - Key stuck in accesory position


while in park, press shifter firmly even farther above park. Hold shifter and turn key.
The linkage may need adjusting. If this does not help the situation, then the pins inside the ignition are not getting pressed down because key is getting worn. You can try to tap around the ignition lightly with hammer to shake the pins loose.
