Some manufactures put in a feature that will not let the button be pushed in until the brake pedal is depressed. If this is the case with your vehcle, there may be a fault with the switch on the brake pedal, or the release in the trans shift has failed.

I cannot get any of my 3 keys to turn in ignition, In Park,I turned the steering wheel the wheels dont move.Now steering wheel is stuck at a tilt...It is not the battery.brake lights work,would it help to...


Try turning the key at the same time as turning the stearing wheel, you should only need to move it a lttle. I am not sure which direction you will need to turn the wheel so you must try both in turn. I think this is caused by the steering lock. I hope this helps.

Ignition stuck key won't turn to start car!


Gear shift is not totally in the park position - had the same problem with a 2011 Acura TL - a rubber band kept the gear shift lever from totally seating in the park position.

The gear shift is stuck in park. The wheel moves


Make sure you have brake lamps. The shift interlock solenoid is powered by the brake lamp switch.

Gear shifter stuck in park, key won't turn.


Most times your stearing wheel is just locked in place in a bind. I try turning the wheel which it will only barely move and turning the key at the same time it should come free. May have to wiggle it some.

Push down on brake pedal with ignition switched on.If it still want shift then you have a problem with the pedal switch.Or maybe you battery needs recharging.Hope that helps.

Can't turn the key, can't move out of park.


Yes the steering wheel lock is jamming your key lock.

try to remember whihc way the wheel was turned when parking. pull down real hard in same direction and turn key.

sometimes you have the pull on wheel very hard in either direction while turning key,****DO NOT FORCE KEY only the wheel/
