Question about 1994 Toyota Tercel
Check that the brake lights are working. The solenoid that lets the gear lever out of park is triggered by power from the brake light circuit. If the lights are not working check the fuse an replace if blown.

shift lockout is usually deactivated when your brake pedal is pushed down, so the switch must be bad, do your brake lights work fine? alot of time it uses the same switch. you can see the switch if u look at your brake pedal right above where u place your foot there is a metal bar that attaches it, the switch will be on there. Best of luck

SOURCE: key stuck in accessory position
sounds like shifter or brake sensor is not working. Try holding brake peddle down while turning key. Also try turning steering wheel a little.

It might be the lock sensor. To get you where you need to go there is a bypass sometimes you have to take a small little cover off to get to it and use a the key or a small screw driver

The automatic transmission shift lock control switch.
The park/neutral position switch.
With the ignition in the ON position, battery positive voltage is supplied to the park/neutral position switch. When the transmission is in the PARK position the contacts in the park/neutral position switch are closed. This allows current to flow through the switch 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 automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is permanently grounded. This energizes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid, locking 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, causing the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid to release. This allows the shift lever to move from the PARK position.
Park Lock Solenoid
The park lock solenoid is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the key is in the OFF position. The key must be in the RUN position to release the park lock solenoid. The system consists of the park lock solenoid. With the ignition in the ON position, voltage is supplied to the park lock solenoid. The park lock solenoid energizes through a permanent ground unlocking the shift lever. With the ignition in the OFF or ACCY position the park lock solenoid de-energizes and locks the shift lever in the park position.
