Shift interlock check your brake lights and fuses for that system, also check your brake light switch.

Dodge magnum transmission won't shift gears


This is what you should do.... PRAY that it is low on fluid. If not, then there are a few questions that I need to ask

a. When you Shift, does the handle go to each gear?
b. Can you feel the Detent on each gear?
c. If the Cable Broke... Easy Fix
d. If your car goes into each gear but does not move... MONEY $$$

To correctly answer your question, I need more information.. Is it not shifting gear when moving or Won't allow you to select gears?

I have a 2005 dodge magnum sxt that will not shift from park.it's lock in the park position.how do I fix this problem.


If this vehicle was equiped with the brake safety system, you have to have the brake depressed to change gears, then you will need to start by looking to see if somehow the brake sensor came loose. I assume this has a console shifter, remove enough of the console that you can visually see if the actuator is actually moving up when you pull the shift release in to move the shifter. If this is working and there is nothing under the vehicle in teh way of the shifting arm the transmission needs to be serviced.

Shifter stuck in park.


The BTSI (Brake Transmission Shift Interlock) has a small spring retainer on the park safety. A small plastic tab breaks & releases the spring. This requires the shifter to be disassembled in order to be repaired.

Repaired mine Sunday May 1st and can provide detailed instructions if desired.

If you are lucky, your brake interlock is the only problem. There is a bypass switch located beside the gear selector. Remove the small "cubby" bin located next to the gear shift by simply lifting up to remove. You will note a small access port and a pink button contained therein. Press the pink button to override the brake interlock.

If you still cannot shift into park, then the shifter must be removed for the spring repair. Even if yours is still under warranty, you will get another shifter that will eventually fail due to poor engineering.

Please let me know if you would like my assistance.

Why is my gear shift will not move out of park?


There is a electric solenoid that releases the gear shift only when the brake pedal is pressed, check your brake lights, are they working? if the brake lights are working then the solenoid may be stuck or otherwise inop, it can be manually over ridden, check the owners manual, it may tell you how to do this.

Dodge magnum gear shift


I had the same problem. The interlock was not the problem. I had the shifter replaced (at my own expense because drive train warranty would not cover). After examining the old shifter discovered source of problem is a plastic cam on the front of ths shifter. A tiny PLASTIC ear which connects to a small spring had broken off. I repaired this by putting in a small screw where the ear had been. Incidentally, my tow truck driver had also seen the same problem on several Chrysler 300s. In my estimation this is a poor design on Chrysler's part.
