Check fuses could be blown fuse. Or another possibility could be brake pedal switch. Brake pedal must be depressed to release shifter from park. Also try and check voltage at solenoid that releases the shifter from park. The solenoid should be located under the shifter, power should only be there when brake is depressed. If voltage is not present with or with out brake depressed than check fuse and switches before solenoid. If voltage is present with brake depressed and no action occurs at the solenoid than that definitely means it is bad. hope you get it fixed..

99 honda accord won't shift out of park


Check your brake light function. If that is at fault then your brake light switch may be faulty. If your brake lights are fine then you may have a faulty shift lock solenoid. Some Japanese models of that era have a button or key slot near to the shift lever. If you depress that then it should manually release the lock and allow you to move through the gears, until you move back to 'P' position at which point it will lock again.

My mercury mariner starts fine but wont shift out of park. Mostly only does this after sitting awhile, it's a 2006 model year with center console shift. The shift button on shifter wont depress.


There is a shifter solenoid that prevents it from being shifted out of park without your foot on the brake pedal. The solenoid may be bad or your brake pedal switch may be bad.

I turn off the car, but key will not come out of ignition. Lock on shifter doesnt work. I can shift without pushing button on shifter. This is an automatic.


We had this problem on 06 and it is the shift button that doesn't pop out. You may be able to pull it out so you can remove the key for now. We had ours fixed under warranty (replaced)

Gear shifter is not moving when u press on break


Are you parked on a slope by chance, or wheels turned hard when shut off? If so, have someone rock truck forward/back while you try to get out of park.

Shift button won't push in to get out of park


When you get back to the car, do this: Check to see if the brake lights work. If the brake lights do not work, the shifter will not come out of park. If the fuse for the brakes is blown, replace it, there are spare fuses under the hood, in the fuse box. If the fuse blows again, you have a short in the brake light circuit. The good news it this: Toyota provides an "over-ride" function to defeat the shift lock device, if you had a dead battery, and need to get it out of park. Look closely at the shifter/console area. You will see a small square piece of trim, about 1/2" square, or smaller. Pry this out with something like a small flat screwdriver or a metal nail file. Once the trim panel is removed, you will see a small button. Pressing this button will allow the car to come out of park. You will need to use this button every time until you get the cause of the problem sorted out. This should get you going. Thanks for choosing FixYa; a FixYa rating for my assistance would be greatly appreciated.

2001 Ford Focus shift button stuck in park


it's under a dime size cover on your console near the shifter. But, your brake/shift interlock solenoid is not working. either a fuse or the solenoid is bad. see owner manual for lcoation of over ride.

Shift light replacement


First, the bulb is a GE 158.
There are two screws near the back of the parking brake cover (one each side). Move the seats forward to remove them.
After removing the parking brake cover (helps to raise the parking brake), there are two screws at the back of the shift console.
Remove those two screws. Pull out the four 'serrated' push pins under the dash area holding the shift console (two each side). Then pull the cup holder up and out.
You should then be able to remove the shift console. One suggestion- if you need to move the shifter out of park, make sure your parking brake is on! There is a shift release you can depress with a small screwdriver under the little button/tab to the right of the shifter. (Can also be reached under the console with your finger after removing the cupholder.)
The bulb holder is on the driver's side. Only one I assume.
Good Luck,
Robert
