When you turn ignition on it releases a cable that is attached to the shifter also the shifter has a solenoid attached to it that is released when you step on the brake. Both times that I had the problem of button stuck and cant shift out of park the solenoid was sticking and wouldnt release .

Apparently there's a latch that catches the shifter, its a yellow piece of plastic (1992 auto 240) I busted it off cause it was gonna make me late for work haha! silly me didnt bother to look in the manual till it was to late but its in there and you can disingage it by sticking your finger in the shifter housing and lifting it or something like that - check your manual !

check for broken wires under the floor shifter at the BTSI connector..the 06 impala had shift solenoid problems often. If thats ok then...remove the negative battery cable and turn key to the on position...try to shift in to Neutral...if your are able to shift, the brake switch is faulty.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

SOURCE: pathfinder will not shift out of park without

Have you had it checked at the shop? if it's still under warrenty take it to the dealer, it could be a loose conection or a loose brake light switch or needs to be adjusted as the plastic shaft has worn out from use. If it's not under warrenty post here and I will replay, also do you have a volt meter to test this with?

Your shift-loc solenoid is not functioning. It could be the solenoid itself, or it could be the brake switch needs adjusting or replacing.

Hope this helps

It might be the shiftlock. On newer cars you have to press the brake pedal in order for it to shift out of park. There is a manuel override in the owners manuel. There is a switch on the brake pedal that would need to be replaced.

I have a 2005 impala it will not come out of netural or drive into park i think its the button on the side of the shifter please let me know how to fix this thank you


It could be a couple of things. The first thing i would check is to make sure the brake lights work. The shift interlock requires a signal from the brake light switch to allow the shifter to move. If the switch dosn't work the shifter will be stuck in park.

There should be an shift interlock override somewhere near the shifter for situations such as this. Look in your owners manual for a more detailed location and instructions on using the override.

You should be able to see a box type component on the backside of your brake pedal. When you step on the brake it sends a current to the computer telling it your on the brake and its ok to shift. Also known as shift lock control. You should also be equipped with an override on side of shifter, Maybe a small button to push or slide or even remove to reveal a small white button. Push it in and shift. Good luck.

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!
