GMC 2005 Envoy shifter stuck in park, car still moving

Sounds like a problem with the shifter linkage. A linkage is basically the mechanical connections (rods, nuts, bolts, swivels, etc.) between two points; one is local and the other is remote. Motion or movement of one results in the same movement of the other. Your shifter is the local point for you and the transmission is the remote. If the linkage is bent, broken or missing parts, the local shifter movement will not be transferred to the remote transmission. A mechanic should be able diagnose and repair this for you pretty easily. Good luck!

Key won't go to off position on 2005 Envoy XL

is the car in the park position sometimes moving the shifter into the gears helps if not possible the ignition switch is damaged and needs to replace the lock in the barrel sometimes jam for now you could shoot some wd40 into the switch while moving the key to on run and off it might help but i always had to finish by replacing the switch

2005 GMC ENVOY Gear Shifter won't move,why and how do I fix the problem?

I am assuming the shifter will not move out of Park (you don't mention it). The shift interlock is not working. Thing you can do is turn ignition key little, but just before ignition comes on, and try to move shifter to N. At this stage you can start the engine and shift to D. This is a temporary solution to allow you drive the vehicle to a repair facility. If you are successful, it is the interlock solenoid that needs to be checked out.

2005 pontiac azteck ignition is stuck and wont go all the way off.. what is the problem

Is the battery dead, if so the key may not come out untill you get power again. Also make sure it is in park, and try moving the shifter down to drive, then back into park again. If that dosen't work put some pressure on the shifter pushing it twards park, and try taking the key out while doing that.

2004 gmc envoy shifter stuck key wont release

First i would check your brake switch it works a locking mechanism right along side your gear shifter which locks the gearshift in place. also look for a slot sometimes there is a slot made for you to slide your key into to release the shifter and allow you to move it manually. it will be on top somewhere by your shifter identification indicator PRND321 if the brake switch is good remove the PRD321 cover and look for the lock on the right hand side at the base of the shifter this may need replacing. thanks for using Fix Ya

My 2002 GMC ENVOY SLT is stuck in reverse and I can't get it start or move out of reverse. Is this an electrical problem?

If its stuck in reverse then it wont start, this could be a bad tranny or the shift cable broke or came loose, theres a braket under the dash that holds the shift cable before it connects to the shifter linkage arm and that braket sometimes gets loosened up and the other problem is the shifter tube may have broken. a good way to see if its the tranny or the shifter asm is to get under the truck make sure to block wheels and put e-brake on. dissconnect linkage at the tranny and move the selecter arm on the tranny, if it in reverse then it should move o click in one direction which is park and the other way is into neutral then drive and so on, try to get it into park and seeif truck starts, if it does then its not the tranyy but rather it the shifter, another thing before doing that have someone turn key on but dont try to start it just move the shifter and se if it moves the arm on the trany, you will see this from under the side of truck on driverside. good day.

2005 cadillac cts key wont turn to on position

This can be the immobilizer at work or at fault mode.

If you have ON-STAR they may fix you up in few minutes.

Disconnect the battery for 3-4 minutes.

TAPE the 2nd key NEAR the ignition key area.

Reconnection the negative cable.

Try to get the key out of the ign.

PUT THE "BAD"/questionable key far away from the steering lock area.

Test the 2nd key.

Make sure the steering does not stick.

Drive right to a shop.
