Yes that clicking noise is a solenoid allowing you to put your vehicle in gear. Try to gently put car in gear without stepping on brake, it shouldn't go, that solenoid is a safety item making sure you have brakes your engaged before moving.

I hear a cclicking noise when I step on break when key is on. I don't hear the click while car is running. Its a 97 infinity q45


Most automatics have a lock on the transmission selector.
When the vehicle is in P (Park) you are not able to select drive or a gear unless you depress the brake pedal.
My Audi Q7 ha a solenoid and you hear it click when I put my foot on the brake.
This solenoid stops you from accidentally selecting a gear without the brake depressed.

Is it a single click when you depress the pedal.
Or is it a constant click click click ?

On a 96 Jaguar XJ6, the gear selector sticks in the park position when startin


i presume this is a x300 series, you should hear a click from the gear selector area when you press the brake pedal with the ignition on, if not the park release soleniod is not working, the common cause of this is the brake pedal switch faulty, you can manualy release it by removing the little star shaped plug near the gear lever and inserting a small object like a screwdriver or your key, then select N and start engine,

Check to see if your brake lights are working. If not, you have a blown fuse for the brake lights or a bad brake light switch on the brake pedal arm bracket.
When you turn the key to ON, a solenoid energizess and lock the sihft interlock. When you step on the brake to shift out of park, It de-energizes the relay so you can move the sift lever. You should hear a click noise with they key in ON position and you step on the brake pedal. TRy this witohout starting the engine & listen.
The bypass emergency procedure is in your owner manual under sift interlock in the index.
But, usually you turn the key to OFF (first click) and then step on the brake & shift out of park. Then start car in neutral and drive away.
It works because you did not energize the shift lock solenoid, by not turning key to ON.

report results and please rate, thanks.

Also, check the wire going to the brake switch under the dash. It may have just come off.

I get a clicking from the gesr shift area when I apply or release the foot brake


This is normal when gear shift is in park. When footbrake is depressed a mechanism in the J gate releases the gear shift so that it can be shifted out of the park position. The clicking noise is is the sound of the mechanism.

My 2001 crown vic will not shift out of park


when you depres the brake pedal do yoiu hear a clicking noise in the steering column? (this noise would be a sign of the shift interlock solenoid functioning)? are all of the brake light bulbs working? (it wont let you shift without all brake bulbs working)....you can overide this shift feature by turning key to on position, without starting vehicle, shift into neutral, then into your desired gear. i hope this helpos your some! good luck!

I have a 98 Nissan Pathfinder. I noticed that the brake light keeps on even while driving or even parked and keys out and car is locked. WHen i press brake pedal, i hear a click noise once. Just one click...


check the brake light switch. when you step on the brake pedal, it allows the 'normally open' switch to move to the 'contact position'. If it's not broken, it may just need adjusted, or a shot of WD40 if it sticks.
