Sounds like you might be having a issue with brake light switch which is locate on top part of brake pedal. The shift lock mechanism works off of the brake switch.

check and make sure the brake lights come on when you apply brake. The shift interlock works off the same circuit so if the lights arent working it wont shift out of park. It is common for the switch to go bad.

2002 honda accord coupe stuck in park. did this a couple days ago but eventually went into drive. now it will not come out of park after attempting many times and turning off and restarting car.


could be the brake switch. unless the brake is pressed it wont release it from park. you can manually put it in gears, theres a little cirlce or square access hole you gotta pry up and remove the plastic piece then push down with a screw driver

I changed the rear brakes on my Jetta tdi and now the brake pedal goes all the way to the floor. It does stop eventually and the parking brakes work. But it stops poorly


you probably have air in the line after brakes are done refill resevoir with brake fluid then the caliper has a little screw for bleeding brakes you must pump brakes 2-3 times leave your foot down until you have someone else open the screw on the caliper to release air or sometimes brake fluid close screw and repeat until the petal gets hard again do it to both rear brakes see if this works..

Gear shift stuck in park on a 2001 gran am. howdo


It is probably not the shift linkage causing your concern. All modern vehicles have a feature called Shift Interlock. It doesn't allow the shifter on automatic equipped vehicles to be moved from park without the key in the ignition and the brake applied. There should be a bypass that will allow you to atleast drive the car for the time being. Check your owners manual to find where it is. It's usually around the shifter. The most common cause for this problem are the brake switch or the shift lock solenoid.

I CANNOT GET MY BRAKE LIGHTS TO WORK. I CHANGED THE BULBS AND CHECKED THE FUSES. WHAT ELSE CAN I DO? I OWN A 1994 BUICK PARK AVENUE


Hello,

Check the wires for the brake system. Its possible that its been cut or something. This had happened to me already. In time, wires get brittle and they tend to just get cut off. This most of the times happen on places that snow.

I hope this helps. Thanks and have a nice day.

The linkage from the shifter to the transmission could be worn. A guy I work with had the same problem with the same car. He change the linkage and it worked fine again
