2001 oldsmobile intrigue stuck in park

Check to see if you have brake lights, If they don't work replace the brake switch at the pedal. This will also let the shifter out of park. If they do work there is a solenoid at the shifter. Column shifters, replace the solenoid. Console shifters you have to replace the entire shift.

Could be one of two things. First is the brake light switch, located of course at the brake pedal under the dash. But usually if the brake lights work it is fine. Second there is a solenoid inside the console at the shifter. Look to the right of the shifter, there should be a slot there. Insert a key and push down to release the shifter. This solenoid is part of the shifter, so to replace it you have to replace the whole shifter, Runs from $150 to $200

Neutral Park/BackUp Lights Switch - REPLACEMENT & ADJUSTMENT
  1. Remove the console trim from the console.
  2. Disconnect the electrical connector from the switch.
  3. Remove the 2 attaching screws from the switch and remove the switch.
  1. To install a new switch:
    1. Place the switch onto the transmission control shifter and loosely install the attaching screws. Position the transmission control shifter assembly in the N notch in the detent plate.
    2. Assemble the switch to the transmission control shifter assembly by inserting the carrier tang into the hole in the shifter lever.
    3. Install the attaching screws and tighten.
    4. Move the transmission control shifter assembly out of N position. This will shear the switch internal plastic pin.

  2. To install the original switch:
    1. Place the switch onto the transmission control shifter and loosely install the attaching screws. Position the transmission control shifter assembly in the N notch in the detent plate.
    2. Rotate the switch on the shifter assembly to align the service adjustment hole with the carrier tang hole. Insert a 3 / 32 in. (2.38mm) diameter gauge pin to a depth of 9 / 16 in. (15mm) and tighten attaching screws.
    3. Remove the gauge pin.

  3. Connect the electrical connector to the switch.
  4. Install the console trim to the console.

Is there a light on the shifter console for nighttime driving?

Yep! it's a common problem with most of the cars, there is usually a tiny 12 Volt bulb that is supposed to light the shifter dials. Some are easy to replace some are tricky, depending no how complicated it is to remove the cover on around the shifter.

Cannot see selector gear at nite - lights are out

Remove the console that surrounds the shifter. This may require removing the shifter handle, too, but it may not be necessary. There will be a screw on the back of the shifter's handle. If it is necessary to remove the handle, make sure the parking brake is engaged and shift into the lowest position to allow for more room to move the handle and then the console. Under the console, you will see the lamp for your shifter. Take it to the parts store to find the appropriate replacement.

i hope this helps
