Check the brake switch above the pedal. take the connector off the switch and short the terminals in the connector together with a large paper clip. If this puts the stop lights on, replace the switch. If this doesn't fix it, please get back to me.

My car won't start and is stuck in park.


Will the starter motor crank? Do you have a shift interlock bypass button? If there is one and you have a console shifter, it should be close to the shifter, with foot on the brake, push the button down and shift into neutral, then see if it will start.
I can think of two possibilities, the shift interlock system, won't let you shift it w/o your foot on the brake and or the neutral switch/transmission range sensor, won't let you crank it unless the tranny is in park or neutral.
Don't replace anything unless your testing points in that direction.

1999 Yukon Denali stop shifting out of park.


Check the brake lights when this happens, if they are not on then you have found the problem it is the brake light circuit. Go under the dash if the brick lights don't work and check the brake light switch above the brake pedal, it should have 12 volts in and out with the brake pedal pushed down. See typical brake light switch location below. #4 in diagram is brk lite switch.

The T-Handle will not come out of Park,unless I use a screwdriver to by-pass the Shift Lock Solenoid.I replaced the Shift Lock Solenoid,and it's still the same.Any ideas?Better still-is there a way to...


There's a plunger switch on the brake pedal arm up above the pedal. It probably isn't working now. There will be a way to move it as an adjustment, which you can try to see if you can realign it. If that doesn't work you can replace it, or just jumper the two wires on the switch itself to effectively permanently close it. Then the interlock will be disabled and you won't have to push the pedal down to take the car out of Park.

Will not shift out of park


Chances are you're parked on a hill. You need someone to push on the car to take the pressure off the parking pin in the transmission. The other possible problem is there is a solenoid the won't release the gear shifter until the brake pedal is depressed. If you are pushing the brake pedal before trying the gear shift there is a malfunction in this system. This is not as easy to fix. If you aren't mechanically inclined I recomend taking that to a mechanic. If you are so inclined let me know and I can help guide you thru the steps.

You have a blown brake lamp fuse.
Start the vehicle, depress the brake, and have someone observe to see if you have brake lights. No brake lights = no removal from park W/O pushing the over-ride switch.
FYI: Brake lamp fuse failures are most always created by a faulty trailer wire harness.

1997 TOYOTA 4RUNNER SR5 WON'T SHIFT OUT OF PARK


You have a blown fuse for the brake lights. The shifter will not come out of park if the brake lights do not work. The crusie will not work, either. I will bet that there is a short in your trailer wiring, and it popped the brake light fuse. Easy to check; get in, start it up, push the brake. If there are no brake lights, the fuse is your problem. Please respond if this helps. Thnaks for choosing FixYa.
