My 2004 chevy optra won't shift out of park. The

My 2004 chevy optra won't shift out of park. The only way it does is if I press a key into the small slot near the gear shifter. I looked in the owners manual and it said to do this to be able to shift from P to D and then take it to a garage. I don't have the bread right now to take it to a shop. I think this might be related to a built in safety switch built into the transmition that I have tripped but I'm not sure. Any help would be appreciated.

My 2004 chevy trailblazer key will not turn all the way off and I don't have to press the brake to shift out of park. Any ideas what the problem is?


Bad interlock switch or gear indicator. The dealer will have the part to fix and it could event be recalled as I know they recalled many Jeeps for the same issue.

Could be the brake switch or the shift lock solenoid. You may be able to turn the key switch to the unlock position and shift out of park before you turn the key switch on.

My 2008 Chevy Malibu won't go into park and I can't take the keys out of the ignition.


There is a problem in the shift linkage or internally in the transmission.
Needs further diagnostics.

Gear shifter is broken


When you say it is broken do you mean it won't move into certain gears?

In past couple days our '04 Echo shifting lever won't go into Park or 2 or Lo gear. And we couldn't take the key out of the ignition. My husband took to center console cover off and when he loosened the bolt under the lever we were able to get it into park and get the key out. But still cannot get into the lower gears. Will probably be taking it to a transmission shop before making major decision.

If your's is an automatic trans, and it is locked in park, there is a small opening on the right/front side of the shifter, pop the top and press the white button, it releases the lever.

Good Luck!
