The lock mechanism for part is operated by a small solenoid, this solenoid is powered by the brake light circuit, so when the brakes are pressed the solenoid releases the part lock by pulling the electric solenoid plunger back, so if u have no brake light then the car remains locked in park, check and make sure u have brake lights, if not check the brake light switch under the dash above the brake pedal, it should have 12+volts in and out of the switch when the brake pedal is depressed, if no power out of switch but has 12 volts in the switch is defective or out of adjusment.

99 mercury mystique key wont turn engine to off


Is your Shifter all the way in Park? Try putting the Shifter in neutral to shut off the engine. If that works your key still won't come out but the car will not be running. If that worked then more than likely something is stopping your Shifter from going into park all the way. Try working the Shifter back and forth with you thumb on the button a couple of times to see if you can get it into park. Just remember the car can roll if it's not in park so use your parking brake if it works or get someone to block off the wheels (forward and back) while you hold the brake pedal.

2009 sonta wont go into park


the shifter wont move, or moves to park but park does not work?
try to be clear.
are you on flat ground?
are you against a curb
did you wiggle the steering and turn the key and wiggle the shifter to park? at once.

there is thing called park lock out but works moving from P/N to gears active, R/D/L. usually going to N/P is no problem. unless cables are rusty.

Park shifter stuck


Could be a problem with the brake light switch or the shift lock solenoid. You may be able to take the shifter out of park if you try it with the key between unlock and on.

My 1997 ford taurus wont shift out of park. The shifter seams to be stuck, it wont move. The shifter is on the steering wheel not the floor.


This is often a switch located on the brake pedal lever. The car requires you to press the Brake pedal before shiftting out of Park. You lose the signal when a foot hits or breaks this part. Look under the dash for the part and fix it.

My crysler 300 - C is stuck in park and wont let shifter move i move the pink pin under shifter plate left and right and still wont shift


This car uses a park lock system, it is operated by the brake light circuit, so is if the brake lights are not on when the pedal is pushed the park lock will not released. if the brake lights do work you have other more serious issues **** as a defective lock solenoid. The owners manual gives the bypass procedure around this problem, check the index.

It wont let me move the shifter out of park


Shift interlock solenoid is probably bad.. there is a spot in the console if you look that will allow you to depress a tab that will allow the shifter to move.

Will not shift out of park


can you move the shifter and it wont go into gear or will the shifter not move at all?? if shifter wont move, there is an electrical solinoid that will not allow the shifter to release when the car is off, that could be faulty, i think it also has a safety mechanism that wont allow it to shift if your foot is not on the brake? if the shifter moves through prn321 but the trans wont come out of park, you have broken the shifter cableand or damaged the shifter mechanism in the trans. hope i have been of some assistance
