Ford Galaxy 2011 gear stick stuck in park won't move


Lots of modern vehicles fitted with auto transmission have a safety lock preventing the gear lever being moved unless the ignition is on and the brake pedal applied.

This probably applies to your car and if the system is faulty it will leave the gear lever stuck. Usually it is possible to hear the lock release.

If the transmission end selector lever is accessible, disconnecting the cable or rod from the lever and moving it by hand will provide a clue whether the problem is inside the box or the cable or gear lever.

Seized gear box.


check the selector levers for wear and possible jamming or if you have the lever directly into the top of the box then check the lever pivot pin in the turret of the gear box.

1990 ford probe stuck in park wont unlock


Have someone look at the Brakelights when you step on the brake. If they do not light up, that is the reason the car will not shift into gear.

There is a switch on the top of the brake pedal and it is an Interlock. The part is suppose to reduce the chance of runaway cars when you shift into gear, a process known as "lurching".

Although the switch is mounted high on the brake pedal lever, it often gets broken or moved by the drivers' feet. Look up under the dash and see the condition of this part on the brake pedal lever. You will then know whether to replace or reposition the switch.

Please rate my info.

My battery is dead and I can't move the car due to the auto gear shift stuck in park. How do I move the car to get a jump on the battery?


if you look on the center council where the shift lever is you will see a small plastic button on the drivers. Remove the button. Insert a small screwdriver into the hole and push down. You will then be able to move the shift lever into nuetral and push the car.

I have 1990 accord lx 5speed that is stuck in 4th gear but the shifter moves in all gears..To get home I had to ride the clutch in 4th all the way home..Checked the links from shifter to trans everything...


Do you still feel the same feedback from gear lever when you change gear or it appear loose? It looks like a gearbox problem, maybe due to low gearbox oil something has broken inside the gearbox.

My 1990 Mercury Grand Marquis won't shift into higher gears, It's also got a really bad whine when u try n push it ... I've checked the transmission fluid and added more, but didn't seem to help, any other...


The first thing you need to check is the Throttle Valve Cable. This cable runs from the throttle body to the transmission and controls gear changes according to throttle position. It may have come disconnected from the throttle lever, or could even be stuck in a "wide-open" position. If this cable is okay then there is a real good chance that the direct clutches have failed. This clutch pack is used in 3rd and 4th gears.
