You must depress brake pedal to get shifter to move. Shifter unit is electrical, not mechanical to the transmission!

You need to have the dealer check the inter lock solenoid on the shifter cable,
It is powered by the ignition and brake light switch,pushing the brake releases the solenoid and allows you to move shifter.

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

Stuck in park


vehicle has a brake inter-lock system where depressing the brake pedal closes a pedal switch then energizes a solenoid in the shifter housing which will permit shifter movement(the pink lever is a manual over-ride in the event this sytem becomes inoperative). I would check brake pedal switch and a voltage signal to the solenoid when depressing which should isolate the inoperative component or missing voltage.

GEO TRACKER AUTO shifter does not release from park


I found this online. Check to see if you have back brake lights. If not the fuse for them also triggers the gear release.

It might just be a fuse. Check to see if your brake lights light up when you step on the brake with the key on. If not it is probably just a fuse.

you have what is called a btsi, brake trans shift interlock that may be the problem, usually there is a little square cover on the console you can remove and use a screwdriver to depress the latching mechanism to shift the car out of park

Had a problem with not being able to move shifter. Took the vehicle to Lincoln dealership to have checked out. Just knew it was going to cost me big money well it cost me $1.45. The problem was fuse number 16 if this fuse is bad the vehicle will not shift. I hope this info will help.
