If you have no electrical power to the car the solenoid will not release the gear shift. You can release it manually, on the under side of the steer colum should be a small button to push, or if it is shift on the floor, there should be a "release" tag.
Make sure you battery is fully charged, and check MAIN fuses in the engine bay.

Check your brake lights, if the system doesn't get a brake lights on signal it will not release park, it is called the park lock system.

97elantra shifter stuck in park but when useing the override button it will move but car takes off in drive


Sounds like to me you may need to have the nuetral safety switch adjusted or replaced. This switch will allow a vehicle to start only if the gear shifter is in the park or nuetral position if it starts in any other gear it may need to be adjusted or replaced hope this helps you.

Stuck in drive


The shifter cable that runs from the lever down to the transmission is most likely broken. You can move the lever on the transmission to put it in park.

Transmision Shifting Problem


Was the fluid you drained red or black? did it smell like trans or gear oil? With linkage disconnected, could you put trans in park by moving the lever on the side of the unit? Oil condition is likely a separate issue...most "blown" transmissions generally have normal operation of shift, it just dosen't do what you tell it to. two things likely going on are: linkage problem and likely in need of fluid/filter change.

the simple fix might be the park interlock cable. this locks the shifter unless you press and hold the brake pedal while selecting gears. I've seen and replaced a few of these on several chrysler/dodge vehicles.

Will not come out of park...dose the shifter move but still in park? If so, sounds like your gear selector cable. As for the not starting and just died, not sure.....will need more info.

Shifter Button Stuck


I had that same problem. There is a gear shift lock button to the right of the gear shifter that has to be pressed down before you can unlock the gear shifter and the key.
