2006 chrysler 300 wont shift back into park


The shift interlock device is broken in the shifter. If you can take the bezel off around the shifter you will see it. It is a pink plastic piece that allows you to shift in or out of park. They ALWAYS break on these cars. The dealer will replace your whole shifter. But you can just replace the pink interlock device.

My jeep wrangler 2008 - I shifted to reverse then to parking, when i release the breaks it kept going in reverse. So i turn off the engine. now it wont start the engine, neither the shifter will move


The shifter cable has broken more than likely ,Find the shift shaft on the transmission,,block the wheels and remove the shift cable from the shift shaft,put the gear shift in park,then shift the shift shaft in park,then it will start,Then of course you will have to replace the shift cable.

Car wont shift out of park


Usually you are parked on a hil. If you don't put the parking brake once for you shift to park, the shifter will get stuck in park. Try it you may like it.

2000 ford mercury 3.0, shifter wont move. had a fender bender, put it into park and it wouldn't come back out.



For car not changing gears it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

For more troubleshooting, I suggest you to get the Following help link checked, its complete step by step procedure to inspect gear shift issues: -----

My 1997 ford taurus wont shift out of park. The shifter seams to be stuck, it wont move. The shifter is on the steering wheel not the floor.


This is often a switch located on the brake pedal lever. The car requires you to press the Brake pedal before shiftting out of Park. You lose the signal when a foot hits or breaks this part. Look under the dash for the part and fix it.

97 mazda 626 wont shift from park. release button on side of shifter wont push in. removed knob, plastic rod in center wont move


The 1st thing you need to do is check the brake lights, if they are not wiorking the park lock solenoid doesn't get power and the park lock remains engaged.

My mercury mariner starts fine but wont shift out of park. Mostly only does this after sitting awhile, it's a 2006 model year with center console shift. The shift button on shifter wont depress.


There is a shifter solenoid that prevents it from being shifted out of park without your foot on the brake pedal. The solenoid may be bad or your brake pedal switch may be bad.

My 2002 passat wont shift out of parking


there is a safety switch on most cars that wont let you shift from park without applying the brakes. its usually located on the brake pedal. if thats defective, it wont allow you to move the shifter normally. sometimes, it can also be located on the transmission. im not too familiar with volkswagon, but either way, I believe that switch is your problem.

Will not shift out of park


can you move the shifter and it wont go into gear or will the shifter not move at all?? if shifter wont move, there is an electrical solinoid that will not allow the shifter to release when the car is off, that could be faulty, i think it also has a safety mechanism that wont allow it to shift if your foot is not on the brake? if the shifter moves through prn321 but the trans wont come out of park, you have broken the shifter cableand or damaged the shifter mechanism in the trans. hope i have been of some assistance
