Yes...The switch is called a neutral safety switch and should be located under the arm that moves on the transmission when you move the shift lever. Most times if it doesn't start in park, it will work in neutral.

99 lincoln navigator column shift stuck in park how do i release shifter?


It is possible that your brake light switch (which also lets the ecm know that you are pressing on the brake) is faulty. I would scan the ecm for a brake switch related fault code. Any malfunction in this switch would keep the gear selector locked in park.

This is a common problem. The saftey interlocks are most likely keeping the tractor from completing the starter circuit. See the attached diagrams for curcuiit.

If off tracter ther park brake set switch must be closed along with thwe PTO off switch closed.

1999 grand prix lights works but wont start. hear one click behind dash when i turn the key to start it.


If you are saying the engine will not crank, try it in neutral instead of park.
The neutral safety switch could be faulty, or you could have a problem with the starter solenoid on the starter.

You may need to reset the system.

SEQUENCE ACTIVATED BY THE PARKING BRAKE .
1. While engine is running (key in ignition switch), apply the brakes and hold the pedal down.
2. Move gearshift lever to neutral.
3. Apply the parking brake Once Twice
Note: The system can be set - at time of installation - to require that the parking brake be applied once or twice.
If set for two actuations, pause one second between the two.
4. Remove key from ignition (the system keeps the engine running).
5. Exit the vehicle.
6. Within 60 seconds, close all doors.
7. The system will stop the engine and blink the parking brakes once to confirm the sequence is valid (vehicle is
ready for a remote start command).
SEQUENCE ACTIVATED BY THE REMOTE CONTROL
1. While engine is running (key in ignition switch), apply the brakes and hold the pedal down.
2. Move gearshift lever to neutral.
3. Apply parking brake.
4. Send the start command (Model 801 & 2101 - Model 903 ).
5. Remove key from ignition (the system keeps the engine running).
6. Exit the vehicle.
7. Using the remote, send the STOP command. The system will stop the engine and parking lights will blink once
to confirm that the sequence is valid (vehicle is ready for a remote start command).

Gear noise left front 2008 prius sound like a tire rubbing against a plastic fender but it is not and the faster you go the louder it gets . Even worse when you steer to the right. And quite to the left.


It's most likely a bad left front wheel bearing or possible tire noise, switch the left front tire with the rear tire and see if the noise changes. If not have the wheel bearing checked, it may need to be replaced.

Unable to turn key to position II in order to start engine on a 2003 volvo s60


Try shifting the car from park to D and then back again while holding your foot on the brake. Assuming that the steering wheel turns freely, the car has a lockout switch tied to the shifter in the console that will keep it from starting if the car is not firmly in park.

Car just started today. When driving to it sounds like thump when changing gears. Talked to transmission guy and he said that Mazda is notorious for faulty park/neutral switch. If we replace that it should...


The park/neutral safety switch has two purposes,
1 not to let the engine start unless it is in park or neutral settings.
2 is when you manually switch gears, it tells the computer and the computer keeps the engine in check until you shift, then the computer compensates for that gear and so on.
I would check motor/ transmission mounts, drive shafts, Suspension bushings,struts, or steering linkage first.
