SOURCE: shifter is stuck in park

check and make sure your brake light s work, if they don't the shifter is locked out, it is a safety feature to make sure your foot is on the brake when u shift into drive or reverse.

SOURCE: replace the automatic shifter cable

I had a similiar problem on my 1996 Escort wagon. The shifter was stuck in park. There is a lil plastic circle to the right of the shifer. Get a small screwdriver and pry off the cap. Then insert a small screwdriver into the hole to see if you can release the mechanism. (by pressing down) If it is frozen like mine was, just remove the 2 screws on the shifter handle one on the side and the other on the side facing the radio. Then remove the 6 screws on the console. Remove the console, in 2 pieces...piece by the parking break first then the larger part that sets over the PRNDL if the lever is frozen and rusted like mine was get some penatrant like WD-40 or liquid wrench....squirt it into the base of the shifter and try to work the mechanism forward and reverse...Note: there is a safety mechanism that holds the shifter in position but will release when you step on the brake pedal. Hope this info helps.

SOURCE: shifter is stuck in park

The shift cable is off the lever on the trans...the dash indicator states drive but the shifter is in park. Look under the drivers side of the trans, next to the catalytic converter(make sure the truck is cooled off) the trans cable will not be attached to the tranny lever-re-attach and you will be able to get it home or to a shop for a repair. This happened to me already, simple fix.

Shift lever blocked in position D ?


Could be the park neutral switch. It senses that foot is on the brake pedal so shifter can be moved.

Shifter button stuck


there should be 2 Phillips screws hold the shifter knob to the shaft. once you take out those screws it should just pop up. as far as I know there are no springs in the knob it's just a slide button. the rest of the parts are part of the shifter assembly.

Car will roll while off and in gear


I am assuming this is an automatic transmission? It is possible your shifter cable or linkage got knocked out of adjustment but most likely the "Park "pawl has either come loose or is broken. It is a lever with a hook like shape that engages into a slotted ring at the output of the transmission.

Heavy duty trucks with Allison automatic transmissions do not have Park on the shifter because the "park pawl" couldn't handle the stress from the heavy loads twisting the driveshaft. Always set your park brake, even on level ground on all cars & trucks with automatic transmissions.

I hope it is just a shifter adjustment otherwise the transmission will have to be removed, disassembled, park pawl replaced.

My 98 ford mustang is stuck in park


check fuses for brake shift solenoid. the brake pedal position switch is a fuse under the hood. inside the passenger compartment, check every fuse. that's a start for not having more information.

2005 chrsyler 300... Car starts, but gear shift stuck in park. Help!


You don't need a shifter assembly. Inside your console is a small "pink" plastic lever that has a spring attached that locks the shifter in park. The small "pink" plastic piece where the spring is attached breaks off. Mine broke off at 45000 miles. Billet technologies makes a aluminum replacement for about $60.00 that won't wear out. The Chrysler forum has pictures and detailed instructions on the replacement procedure.

1996, stuck in park shifter moves fine, but car will not roll in neutral, but if i rock car back and forth it will pop out of park and then i can drive forward and backwards just fine. as soon as i put it...


The park pawl is spring loaded and it sounds like that spring has broken. The problem is, the trany has to be removed from the car and completely disassembled to fix it. The linkage for park is all mechanical, the transmission could be completely out of fluid and park should still work. I guess, I would get into the habbit of setting the park brake, then put the car in park and pull it out of park, before you release the park brake. You could also leave the shifter in the neutral position and set the park brake. This will allow you to start the car but you won't be able to remove the key. Hopefully the brake cables are not all rusted up. Good luck.

It is stuck in park


ok first step is to take off the rubber cover (change holder) on the shifter. there is a pink tab push the pink tab down with a long screw driver. If it still is stuck in park the interlock spring is broken in the shifter u would need a shifter assembly 99% of the time this is the problem good luck.

Car won't shift out of park


I just repaired the same problem, several things could be wrong, first check the brakes and see if the brake light switch works, the next thing I would check then is the shifter box. Take the shifter molding apart till you are at the shifter box itself.Once you can see Inside the box you will see two parts that are pink , the one that is inside the box is the part that allows the shifter to move. get a small screw driver and move this part around. while the key is on and your foot is on the brake move the part and the shifter, it will come free. The problem is that there is a spring attached to this part and the spring breaks off. I took the shift box apart and then I secured the spring to the part with a key ring loop. you could probably use wire to attach the spring . It is working fine now.
