Cannot move the shift lever out of Park on my 2001 Acura MDX. The normal method of pushing on the brake pedal does not work. My brake lights do not work. I think it's a fuse, but cannot figure out which one.

SOURCE: Shifting lever doesnt want to come out of park

This is a problem that occurs in many Honda's. Inside the shifter is a cable that is connected to the button to release the shift lock so you can shift into a gear. This cable become frayed and can eventually brake, which makes it hard to shift. The only solution is to replace the shifter either with a new OEM from Honda (very expensive) or get a good used one from your local recycle yard.

2009 Cadillac DTS gears won't go into gear shifter won't shift into gear


Something wrong with the shift lock system maybe. Safety system that won't allow the gear selector to move from park unless the driver is pushing the brake pedal . Do your brake light's work ? Does your caddy have floor or column shift ?
Automatic Transmission Shift Lock Control Description and Operation (Floor Shift)
The automatic transmission shift lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the engine is running. 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 solenoid (serviced as the automatic transmission shift lock actuator), as well as the body control module (BCM) and the engine control module (ECM).The shift lock solenoid is located within the floor shift control assembly with vehicles equipped with floor shift.
• The BCM controls the voltage supply circuit of the shift lock control solenoid. The following conditions must be before the BCM will supply voltage to the shift lock control solenoid.
The BCM controls the voltage to the shift lock control solenoid through the shift lock control solenoid controlled voltage circuit. The following conditions must be met before the BCM will supply voltage to the shift lock solenoid:
• The ignition is in the ON position.
• The ECM sends an input via GMLAN serial data to the BCM indicating the transmission is in the PARK position.
• The BCM determines the brake pedal is applied according the brake pedal position.
Since the shift lock control solenoid is permanently grounded, the BCM supplies voltage to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid, mechanically unlocking the shift lever allowing the driver to move the shift lever out of the PARK position as the solenoid energizes. When the brake pedal is not applied, the BCM turns the control voltage output of the shift lock control solenoid OFF, de-energizing the shift lock control solenoid. The de-energized solenoid mechanically locks the shift lever in the PARK position.
During remote start operation, the BCM will de-energize the shift lock control circuit, locking the shift lever in the PARK position.

2000 regal won't go out of park


I would think it has something to do with
Automatic Transmission Shift Lock Control System
The automatic transmission shift lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the engine is running. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of the PARK position. The system consist of the following components:
• The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid.
• The automatic transmission park lock solenoid (Regal only).
• The automatic transmission shift lock control switch.
• The transmission range switch.

Regal
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 and park lock solenoids. The transmission range switch provides a path to ground in the PARK position. With the automatic transmission shift lock control and park lock solenoids energized the shift lever is locked in the PARK position. When the driver presses the brake pedal, the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open. This causes the automatic transmission shift lock control and park lock solenoids to release. This allows the shift lever to move from the PARK position.
Do the brake lights work ? If not could be cause by bad brake light switch .

How do I get unstuck from park?


Vehicles have a safety system that won't allow gear selector to be moved out of park unless brake pedal is pushed ! This what Buick calls there's
Automatic Transmission Shift Lock Control ! Depending on make of your vehicle it mite be called something else . But all vehicles have it.
The automatic transmission shift lock control system 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 brake to shift relay


?€¢
The rear integration module (RIM)

With the ignition in the ON position, battery positive voltage is supplied to the brake to shift relay coil. When the RIM energizes the brake to shift relay, the brake to shift relay switch contacts close suppling battery voltage 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 permanently grounded solenoid is energized. This locks 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. This causes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid to release. This allows the shift lever to move from the PARK position.

My brake lights will not work **** all my fuses are good on a 2001 acura mdx


Hi, the problem you are having will be with the brake light switch, it may be that its come away from the pedal or it could need replacing, to find the brake light switch all you need to do is get on your hands and knees the drivers side of the car and have a really close look at the brake pedal, now once your looking at the brake pedal follow it to the very top of the pedal and then you should see the brake light switch it should be stuck to the bracket of the brake light pedal it will be located just behind the moving part of the brake pedal.

have a look and the switch may just be hanging down and need just pushing back in place, you sohlud be able to adjust it slightly as it may just be wore so have a good look and you will see how it works its just a button that is pressed when you touch the brake pedal.

let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

plz rate this solution as i have a whole page of unrated posts, thanks

2001 ford escort stuck in park lever won't move starts normally


If it wont move into gear,the safety switch is malfunctioning. You can take the plug out of the hole on the upper right side of the console just to the right of the gear shift lever. put a philips screwdriver in the hole and press down. this will manually release the gear shifter mechanism.

I have a 2001 MDX and I cant get it to go into gear. When I depress the brake, I cant move the shifter from park into R,N or any of the D's....what do you think is the problem


Take a look at the shift lock. When you depress the brake is there an audible click heard coming from the center column? If not there could be a few possible problems. Either your brake pedal switch is defective(brake lights coming on?) the wiring to the shift lock is open or shorted, or the shift lock itself is defective. A quick fix is to remove the small plastic cover just right of the shifter that is the shift interlock manual release. Using a small pocket screwdriver depress the white plastic button and move the shifter.
