Check the switch under the brake pedal (some have cables) when you apply the brake pedal it disengages a lock on the shifter, it's a safety feature. I hope this was helpful for you. Take care and God bless.

    Is the car sitting on a decline? If it is...the parking pawl inside the transmission might be stuck on so you would have to push the car up the hill enough to shift it out.

My 2005 nissan altima won't change from park when crunk up. what could be the problem?


Usually a sign of a faulty brake light switch or lock solenoid on the shifter. You may be able to get the shifter out of park by turning the key to the unlock position but not "on".
There may be a button you can push next to the shifter to unlock in an emergency. Check your owners manual.

try pushing the knob down onto the shifter a little bit then try and shift. Sometimes if that knob is raised even a little bit it will be locked in park. Can't be 100% sure without seein it but worth a shot. Hope that helps you.

My 2002 tbird won't shift out of park I played with the shifter and rocked the car and got it out a couple of times


The first thing to do is check the brake lights, if they don't work the shifter lock will not release the shifter from park. The common problem on this model is the connector at the brake light switch is defective due to broken wires inside the plastic outer insulator.

2008 Saturn Vue Stuck In Park. The car starts fine however when you try to shift out of park the shifter is locked up and won't budge. You have to restart the car multiple times to get the shifter...


these have a safety system so the shifter won`t go into any gear unless the brake is pushed(indicating someone sitting in the drivers seat),if the brake lights aren`t working this indicates that the fuse that operates the shift lock solenoid and brake lights is not working and needs replacing.check the fuses and replace the fuse and things will probably return to normal.

GEAR SHIFT STUCK IN PARK HAVE NO BRAKE LIGHTS


check the fuses as if the brake light fuse is blown it won`t allow the shifter to move out of park.it has a shift interlock system so the gear shift won`t accidentally be moved out of park by mistake.
