SOURCE: cant get shifter to get out of park

yes it has a electric sensor at the shifter and this part can be purchased from a local dealer. not hard to replace after the plastic is removed from around the shifter. the reason i asked if the key could be removed is that, it also has an electronic release as well and diff. part. hope the info will help you.

SOURCE: shifter problem

If you take the center console apart and look at the shifting lever, you will be able to tell how it works and figure out what is happening with it. you have to push in on your brake pedal first, of course, and thta will actuate a solinoid in the center console. The solinoid may be faulty or you may have a pinched wire causing this.
You are not an idiot by any means I would guess. You should be able to figure this out. It is a pretty simple assembly.
If you are parking on a hill then you could be experiencing the transmission parking paw having pressure on it, which will cause you to not be able to shift out of park. If you are parking on a hill, I would suggest that you use your parking brake before you put your vehicle in park. This is take the pressure off the parking paw.

Car starts, cant move shifter


take the cup holder out (the one closest to the dashboard) you will see a piece of the inside which you can slide up and remove. you are going to use that piece like a tool! (go to the passenger side and you will be able to see a button like thingymajig inside of the cupholder which leads to the shifter. that's what you want to push that piece in and it will release the shifter. so for the past 5 years when I get in my car start it then I use my right hand to release that and my left hand to push the shifter button in to gear at the same time. it will only move into another gear if you release at the same time. hope this makes sense! once unlock you can move into any gear. only when its in park do you have to use that little piece.
fyi I dropped that thing inside that opening once so now I use a pen/pencil or a comb.

When I start my 2002 olds bravada, the car turns on all lights come on, but when i go to move the gear from park to drive it will not move. It seems stuck in the park position.


their is a part inside the transmission that is know to go out at the tip of a hat. It is a fairly inexpensive part, but you need someone who knows how to tear down a transmission and replace the broken sleve inside the tranny.

Gear shift will not move from park


First thing to check is your brake lights. The brake interlock for the shifter relies on the switch that turns your brake lights on. If it's not working, you won't have brake lights OR the ability to move the shifter out of park. In an emergency, most of these vehicles have a small plug near the shifter that you can remove, push a button, and move the shifter without pushing the brake pedal.

Good luck.

I can't get my 2005 dodge magnum out of park. I checked to make sure the steering wheel wasn't locked. I mashed the brakes and pulled the gear shifter which is located in the floor and it will not move ...

Shift gear is stuck on park and can't get it out of gear.


Hi there,

There are multiple things that must all happen in order for the shifter to move from park.

1. Make sure the key ignition switch is in the "Run" position (the position just before the "start" position).

2. Brake pedal is depressed (usually pushed in a couple of inches or more at least to release the button on the shifter).

3. Push in the button on the shifter and pull back (you may need to push the shifter slightly forward or back a little for the button to move freely).

If the button on the shifter still doesn't push in freely, there is a problem with the mechanical lock-out linkage or electronic switch that releases the button lock. Check under the dash area along the brake pedal arm for anything that doesn't look correct.

4. If the car is on an incline/slope/hill, it will put a lot of pressure on the parking pin in the transmission. Usually a strong tug or pull on the shifter will pull it out while you're pushing on the brake pedal to prevent rolling when it releases. Make sure to set the parking/emergency brake first to prevent this next time .

Good Luck!!

Thanks

Key will not come out. Battery light stays on.


your shifter is not aligned properly this condition indicates that the shifter has placed the transmission in park but just barely it needs like maybe 2 more millimeters of travel.

2002 Pontiac aztec gear shift button wont depress.


there is a bypass for the safety switch, unfortunately you have to remove the shift cover, the whole plastic piece. there is a white "lever" that you can push that will move the pin out of the way so you can shift it, you have to hold the piece and move the shifter at the same time. it is on the right side of the shifter base (under the plastic piece) you will see what I mean when you remove the center piece.
