Turn the key from the lock position to the first 'on' position (first click from the position the key is inserted). Holding the brake, try to move the selector. Does it move? If so, you have a problem with the shift interlock. If not, you probably have a linkage / trans problem Have an assistant watch the brake lights. If no brake lights, check fuses for blown fuse. Repairing lights will repair interlock.

How come my car won't shift into park


The steering wheel can be in a bind to prevent the park lever from moving. Try working the steering wheel at the same time you try to move the shift stick. My mother-in-law had the very same problem.

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.

Shifter on 95 buick riviera stuck in park


There is a "park lock cable" located in the steering column that releases the shifter after the ignition switch is turned to the on position. There is also a BTSI (brake trans shift interlock) solenoid that also releases the shifter when you press on the brake pedal. One of them is not functioning, are you able to turn the steering wheel after the car is started?

Twice my 21 yr old has told me he cannot start the 2002 Buick Regal. The first time I think the gear shift had not fully engaged in Park. This last time he said the steering wheel locked up, so he...


could be a faulty safety start switch, as far as the steering wheel locking up,, most the time thats just caused by turning off the key while the wheels are up against a parking curb or something thats putting pressure on the wheels, if the key won't turn Just pull it from side to side as you wiggle the key , I'd have the safety switch in the shifter checked, and maybe adjusted

I just drove my enclave this morning, but went out to start it and the key won't turn. I tried the spare key and this won't turn either. I tried moving the steering wheel, but it will not move at all. ...


I would call a local dealer with the VIN in hand and find out whether it is under warranty, 5yr/50k miles is typical. If not I would talk to the service manager and find out if this is a common Buick problem and if so how much to fix. This involves the lock cylinder and steering column, and is outside the normal repair shop's venue.

1999 Regal GS -stalls, starting trouble, won't shift now


the batt is suspect...take it to autozone, or other place, they'll check it out free......the shifting out of park is a seperate issue, the pawl for the steering/shifter is not working properly....did you notice if the steering wheel would turn when the shifter is stuck?....probably not....when this happens try to turn the wheel back and forth-not hard but not gently- a little graphite dust sprayed in there would help.......hope this helps you out

The car will start but is stuck in park and wont shift


On most car what you have is a solenoid on the transmission lever. remove the cover and should have an access to it. then all you have to do is depress it so it release the lever. check the power going to the solenoid you should have power to it when you depress the brake when your engine is on. if not check your circuit or fuses.

2002 buick regal won't start


I have a 2003 buick regal. I found a small cover or tab about 3/4 of an inch square under the bottom of the steering column cover. If you remove that tab and take a thin object , like a phillips screwdriver and shove it up that hole it will release the ignition so you can turn it back and pull out your key. What a great discovery!
