Usually there is no adjustment check to make sure that there is no grime or crud caked around the button if so take something to clear it out of the way. you may also want to lube it with wd 40 or some other penetrating oil of your choice. hope this helps you.

Where can i find a shift lock solenoid for my 2002 monte carlo ss? i have searched for days on internet and cant find anything.


just because you disconnected the shift cable from the trans doesnt mean the car is now out of gear. The interlock switch is located next to the shifter in the center console. Remove the bezel around the shifter and you should see a small tab that reads (shift interlock) pull it out of its holder and the shifter should once again move

it is the shift lever solenoid, if you can acess the inside of the console where the gear shifter is on the bottom left side of the shifter you will see an electrical connecter that has 2 wires hooked to it this is the solenoid, you can replace this and it will fix your problem, or you can just unplug it and the shifter will work, if you choose to leave it unplugged beware that the transmisson will now be able to be shifted into gear without your foot having to be applied to the brake, but hey, who puts their car in gear without their foot on the brake, all this system is is a saftey device to keep you from shifting into gear without your foot on the brake

2006 Monte Carlo


Here's how to override the shift lock on a 2006 Monte Carlo. First, remove the top of the shift console by pulling up on the plastic piece directly in front of the hinged cover. This is the piece that has the cup holders molded into it and it is held in place by 4 clips (i.e. it will pop back into place with no tools).

Next, shine a flashlight down into the console to the right of where the shift lever passes through (passenger's side). You'll see a wiring clip with 4 or 5 wires going into it. Directly behind this clip you can see a metal shaft with a flared top that looks like a button. This is the shift lock override button. Reach in behind the wiring clip with your right hand and press this button in. With the engine running, hold the button in with your right hand, press on the brake, and shift out of park with your left hand.

Now you can drive the car to your mechanic (or to your own garage) to find out why the shift lock solenoid is not working. On mine it was obvious. A wire going into that clip near the override button came loose and there was no power to the shift lock solenoid. I removed the clip, reattached the wire, and replaced the clip. Problem solved, fixed for free!

The shifter cable and linkage may be getting sticky. Locate the linkage and cable on the gear selector (transmission side under hood) and spray them with some PB Blaster or WD 40.
