The sensor is at the top of the pedel shaft. You should be able to push in the button with your finger. Push it in and listen for a click. if you dont hear a click then check the sensor wires for cuts or exposed copper. If thats good then the sensor needs to be replaced.

shift lockout is usually deactivated when your brake pedal is pushed down, so the switch must be bad, do your brake lights work fine? alot of time it uses the same switch. you can see the switch if u look at your brake pedal right above where u place your foot there is a metal bar that attaches it, the switch will be on there. Best of luck

Probably a shift solenoid gone bad. Call dealer to see how you can by-pass to get it repaired. Some of them have an access cover you can remove and push down to release the shifter

SOURCE: Wont shift out of Park

will it shift to other gears? You should check your linkage... you'll have to get under the car and locate it on the transmission. Possibly trace it back to the gear shift and find out if there is possibly a kink in it somewhere or some other obstruction.

Try replacing your brake light switch that is located at the top of the brake pedal arm. It might work if you wiggle or shake the switch but most likely you will have to replace the switch. good luck leave comment.

Abs light on wont shift out of park


Hi Judy , what kind of vehicle do you have ? Year an model ? ABS light has nothing to do with it not coming out of park . Problem with automatic transmission shift lock control ! Probably !
The automatic transmission shift lock control is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the ignition is ON. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of the PARK position. The system consists of the following components:
?€¢
The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid.


?€¢
The automatic transmission shift lock control switch.


?€¢
The park/neutral safety switch.

With the ignition in the ON position, battery positive voltage is supplied to the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The circuit continues through the normally-closed switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The park/neutral safety switch provides a path to ground for the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid in the PARK position. This energizes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid, mechanically locking the shift linkage in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open, causing the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid to de-energize. This allows the shift lever to move from the PARK position. When the shift lever is out of the PARK position the contacts in the neutral safety switch open and the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is de-energized.

My key is stuck in the ignition in the on position and I cant turn my 2009 hhr off. How can I get my key to turn and come out?


FIRST make sure that your shifter is all the way up into the PARK position. Then make sure that the button on the shifter is not sticking. This button operates a switch that energizes a solenoid to keep the key from returning all the way back to the OFF position. If the button is stuck in, sometimes it can be released by tapping on the shift lever. This is a VERY COMMON problem.

Below is a link to a video that explains what I am talking about here.

Was the ignition switch ever recalled on the 2009 chevy cobolt


No,
Recalls for
  1. STEERING:ELECTRIC POWER ASSIST SYSTEM. GENERAL MOTORS IS RECALLING CERTAIN MODEL YEAR 2005-2010 CHEVROLET COBALT AND MODEL YEAR 2007-2010 PONTIAC G5 VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH ELECTRIC POWER STEERING. THE DRIVER MAY EXPERIENCE A SUDDEN LOSS OF POWER STEERING ASSIST THAT COULD OCCUR AT ANY TIME WHILE DRIVING.
  2. POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:LEVER AND LINKAGE:COLUMN SHIFT. GENERAL MOTORS IS RECALLING 276,729 MY 2009 BUICK ENCLAVE, CHEVROLET COBALT, HHR, MALIBU, TRAVERSE, GMC ACADIA, PONTIAC G5, G6 AND SATURN AURA AND OUTLOOK PASSENGER VEHICLES. THESE VEHICLES FAIL TO COMPLY WITH FEDERAL MOTOR VEHICLES SAFETY STANDARD 102, "TRANSMISSION SHIFT POSITION SEQUENCE, STARTER INTERLOCK, AND TRANSMISSION BRAKING EFFECT", AND FMVSS 114, "THEFT PROTECTION AND ROLLAWAY PREVENTION". ON SOME OF THESE VEHICLES, THE TRANSMISSION SHIFT CABLE ADJUSTMENT CLIP MAY NOT BE FULLY ENGAGED. IF THE CLIP IS NOT FULLY ENGAGED, THE SHIFT LEVER AND THE ACTUAL POSITION OF THE TRANSMISSION GEAR MAY NOT MATCH. WITH THIS CONDITION, THE DRIVE COULD MOVE THE SHIFTER TO "PARK" AND REMOVE THE IGNITION KEY, BUT THE TRANSMISSION GEAR MAY NOT BE IN "PARK".
If you are having a problem with your ignition switch, repost question with full details.

MY 2006 HHR IS STUCK IN REVERSE, HOW DO I FIX THIS? SHIFT LEVER IS IN PARK!


For a quick fix to get it to shut off and not go anywhere, drop it into Reverse, which should equal neutral, assuming your shift lever has somehow skipped up one gear. Pull the parking brake, and then, try and find someone who specializes in re-linking a transmission. I've got to admit I'm no good at doing this for automatics.

2006 HHR with automatic transmission. I hear a solanoid clicking sound coming from the shifter area like a solinoid when I start the car and push the brake pedal before pressing the shift button and going...


This time only, your dealer is right. The sound is the Brake to Shift Interlock (BTSI) solenoid releasing the shift lever when you apply the brake. The sound is normal and won't hurt anything but I understand your concern.

Nissan maxima wont shift into park


There is a little button in front of the shifter. I pushed on this while moving the shifter back and forth. It immediately went down and I was able to put he car in park and then pulled out the key.

My 2006 Chevy HHR gives me problems when I try to get the shifter out of the park position. I have to play with the gear shift button for a few minutes before it finally goes into drive. I have had to put...


There is a pin that goes thru the shift cable that is falling out. The next thing that will happen is the key will get stuck in the ignition. I took the plastic off of the sides of the console you will see a black plastic frame with holes in it I cut a larger hole between 2 of the small holes with a hack saw on the driver side. Put the car in neutral seat all the way back pull on the shift button and you will see the pin pull it out with a pair of neelde nose pliers. I put 598 black loctite sealant on mine and reinstall. Shift back to park if you can get the key out and the doors unlock you have the pin in the right spot and it is making both switches when in park. It sticks out about a 1/2" on each side. Good luck
