Cannot shift out of park. Have drove this car for 10 years and this has never happened!


Set the emergency brake.

Locate the shifter lock override slot located on the shifter console near the shifter lever. Normally, the slot is plugged with a small plastic cap.

Remove the plastic cap covering the override slot and insert a key, nail file or similarly shaped object into the slot and push down.

While pushing down, depress the brake pedal, grab the shifter and push in the shifter lock button located on the shifter as you normally do and then move the shifter to the Neutral position. With the brake pedal still depressed, start the engine with the shifter in the Neutral position.

My 2001 PT Cruiser automatic transmission Is stuck in park. The gear shifter moves freely. Is there a lever or cable loose or broke?


It's your shift cable. Happens all the time. More than likely it broke the last time you put it in park. We've replaced two ourselves. You can get them from O'Reilly Auto for about 65 bucks. They can be a pain in the keister to put in. You have to pull the console cover and we literally had to pull the seats to get it to come out. I routes behind the heat shield on the converter and up. We actually shifted it from under the hood all last winter. It slips on the tranny just under the battery.

Have someone shift it from inside and feel underneath the battery to see if the cable is actually moving.

Be careful pulling it off the console if you do it yourself. Its only seated in plastic. That part has the tendency to break also. So there is a chance that it broke there instead of the cable being bad.

So... First. Take the console off and see if everything is intact there. If the shifter is moving freely and feels very "loose" , more than likely, that plastic piece has also broken.

You'll see in the picture the location. If that's the case you have to replace the entire "white" piece of plastic that anchors to the body of the car. You can see it in the picture here. That comes off fairly easy.

Check for cuts in the cable there also.

It's not as difficult as it seems unless the cable needs to be replaced also. You can find on youtube the way to do it or get directions online. Also you can get a repair manual for 20 bucks from NAPA that will show you step by step how to do it. I actually got one for free from the local library. You can check them out.

Good luck with your PT. They are a great car - they just need some TLC now and than.

The only other thing that may have happened (slim chance) is that the cable came off the transmission. This RARELY happens. It is almost always the cable and/or the plastic base underneath the shifter.

I have a 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo. The accordion type plastic housing that moves with the gear shift is broke. What is that part called, and how do I replace it?


I assume you mean the pieces that slide along with your automatic transmission's shifter? Those are called blinds, they're part of your shifter bezel.

To replace your bezel, you have to remove your center console. It's only nine screws. Here's a good writeup on the process: http://www.wjjeeps.com/console.htm

How do i change my shift cable on my pt cruiser


I just had the same experience just now. What I did first was remove the center console. There are 2 screws under the front cup holder and 4 in the center storage compartment. Make sure you disconnect your rear power window switch or you will pull it out. At the bottom of the shifter is a pin and the end of the cable has a plastic piece with a hole in it that connects to the pin. The plastic piece popped off. I put it back on and it worked. It was still real tight, but I am at work and at least I can get home. ( I was stuck in reverse!)

Auto will not disengage from park.


ok, other than the obvious question of are you applying the brake before shifting my next would be does the gear shift move at all? If it does is there any resistance or not? If there is no resistance it is possible that the shift cable is broken. Also is the shifter on the column or in the center console? If it is in the center the plunger that allows the shifter to move may be stuck or broken. There is a clip that holds the handle on, remove the clip and ensure the button on the shifter handle is moving and pressing down on the nylon piece that "unlocks" the shifter. Lastly the problem could be with the "shift interlock" which is a cable that ties the shifter to the brake pedal. If the interlock is damaged it will prevent the vehicle from shifting from park. I hope i have helped in some way.

2001 pontiac aztek Has floor mounted shift. Won't shift out of park.


First of all, you are stepping on the brake pedal when you try to shift. Had to ask.

It could be a number of things. I have a 2000ish Grand Am that wouldn't shift. The problem turned out to be the T-handle on the shifter. Most GM shifter handles come off the same way. If there is a rubber/leather boot, pull that down a little to expose a metal clip.
The metal clip can be pulled off straight for\ward (I think), and the handle comes off.
The shifter will be a tube with a plastic rod sticking out of it. Try pushing the rod in, and see if the shifter works. If yes, replace the handle. If not, the problem is probably down in the shifter.

When you step on the brake, there is a cable going from the brake pedal to the shifter. Step on the brake and you should hear something moving in the center console/shifter. If not, the cable could be detached or broken.

The shifter itself may be broken, but that can be tough to get to.
The could be something wrong at the transmission, or inside the trans.

Chrysler 300 won't shift out of park


I had the same problem with my 05. I couldn't shift out of park. So, I checked brake pedal sensor, and wire linkage and they were fine. I took the center console apart and pulled out the shifter assembly and sure enough the problem was at the assembly. There is a plastic piece. that hooks to a small spring that snapped. I ened up renforcing it with a small clamp hose, and ever since its been functioning fine. I imagine I saved my over $500 bucks of repair cost and also wouldn't be surprize for others to have the same problem.

Floor shifter ont engage to park


YES THE PART THAT IS BROKEN IS MOST LIKELY A WHITE PLASTIC PIECE THAT SITS INSIDE THE SHIFTER HOUSING, REMOVE THE SHIFTER HANDLE REMOVE THE WHITE PLASTIC PIECE WITH ALL THE ROUND BALLS ON IT (I KNOW WHAT IT LOOKS LIKE YOU DONT HAVE TO SAY IT) AND LOOK DOWN THE HOUSING WITH A FLASHLIGHT IF YOU STILL SEE A PART OF THAT WHITE PLASTIC PIECE, THATS YOUR PROBLEM. YOU CAN EITHER REPL SHE SHIFTER LEVER P# 52078551AG OR SEARCH THE JUNK YARDS FOR THAT PART

The solution is that you must purchase the complete shift housing because it is all one piece and you can't just replace part of it.The dealer told me this is about $250.00 U.S. and it can be replaced by an intermediate skilled tinkerer. For right now I just live with the inconvenience as I can pretty much guess what gear Im in.
