SOURCE: Can't release key - gear shifter problem? Recall item???

the ignition switch should be replaced but if you want to try to fix it on the cheap use some nonconductive lubricant in the key hole and on the key work the key in and out 10-15 times before turning the key reapplying lube repeat, do not use regular lubricant it can cause short of the switch, if you can't find nonconductive lubricant spray electrical contact cleaner into it or powdered graphite lube.

SOURCE: 2005 Trailblazer XT won\'t go into 4WD. Front hubs

i've been told it was the 4wd actuator located on the passenger side near were the cv joint goes in to the front axle a good test is to floor jack it up so both wheels are off the ground and have someone on the other side , put in nutrual turn both wheels one way at same time and the 4wd drive shaft should turn if not its your actuator, costs about $86 for anew actuator and takes about 5 mins to change once you have the tire off

Ok, here is what you do, slide under vehicle, locate shift lever on side of transmission rotate counter-clockwise two clicks, pop shifter on, hop back inside turn key on depress brake pedal and check shifter, if it falls off again replace cable assembly they do not sell individual bushings, and get cable from dealer.

Re: 2004 Chev Trailblazer won't shift into gear. Shifter is locked in park. Will disconneting the battery fix the prob?


is the shifter on the steering column? If it is then turn the steering wheel left or right, it won't turn much but it will free up the shifter.

I parked my 2003 Chevy Trailblazer in my driveway and now my shifter is locked in the park position. I cannot shift out of the park position even depressing the brake when the vehicle is on. It is locked...


If it is floor shift it has a soloind under the cover not to hard to remove, you have to memove the whole thing bolt in front cupholder and inside armrest storage. once it has removed there is a soloind in there that mounts on the shifter. this goes bad alot. Push the button on the silver soloind button this will release it into gear. Hope this helps. ( Usually he black soloind goes bad)

Can't get my key out of the ignition 2003 trailblazer


I have worked on several vehicles with this same problem and each one was a relatively simple repair with no parts involved, first off the shift interlock has nothing to do with it and will not prevent your vehicle from going into park, it is designed to work ONLY when coming out of park. The problem your having depends on the type of shifter handle your vehicle has, if the release lever is on the bottom and you have to push up with your fingers to release it, then the problem is...there is a rubber type cover that surrounds the release button, after time it becomes distorted and bunches up preventing the shifter from fully engaging in the park position (even though it appears the vehicle is going into park)if your careful you can work the rubber cover out and your problem is fixed. If your shifter button is on the side and pressed with your thumb the cable needs to be adjusted, this cables only purpose is to prevent key removal except when in park and is easily adjusted, with the center council removed, if you look at the front of the shifter base you will see 2 cables that snap into the shifter frame, the larger one is the gear selector cable, the smaller one runs up to the steering column and operates the mechanism that prevents key removal, where the cable snaps into the shifter frame is where the adjustment is done and is identical to a kick-down cable used on older vehicles with automatic transmissions, right where it snaps into the frame there will be a button you can press down releasing a spring loaded adjustment arm, make sure you first mark the arm for reference then press down the button and adjust it a little either way until it functions properly, hope this helps and good luck
