    I'm having the same problem on my 2005 Forenza. I'll check the brake light fuse.

    I found that if you turn the key to Lock in the steering column, put the parking break on, insert thekey into the shift lock, put vehicle in Neutral, then start the car. this iwll unlock your gear untill you turn the car off... then you must do this every time you want to drive.....

Stuck in Park?
Check to see if the stop lights are working - shift interlock should be the same circuit Check stop light fuse
Try turning the key to 1st position (Unlock)
Shift to neutral to start vehicle and then shift to Drive

Shifter is locked in park on a 2002 bravada that sayes on dash its in reverse


PRND321 Display
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the selected gear position as determined by the engine control module (ECM). The IPC - instrument panel cluster receives a serial data message from the ECM indicating the gear position. The PRND321 display blanks if:
?€¢
The ECM detects a malfunction in the transmission range switch circuit.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of serial data communications with the ECM. The automatic transmission shift lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the engine is running. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of the PARK position. The system consists of the following components:
?€¢
The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid


?€¢
The automatic transmission shift lock control switch

With the ignition in the ON position, voltage is supplied to automatic transmission shift lock control switch. Voltage flows through the normally closed contacts of the automatic transmission shift lock control switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is permanently grounded. This energizes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid causing the transmission shift lever to be physically locked in the PARK position. When the brake pedal is pressed the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open, de-energizing the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. This allows the shift lever to be move out of the PARK position.
The transmission range (TR) switch is part of the park/neutral position (PNP) and backup lamp switch assembly, which is externally mounted on the transmission manual shaft. The TR switch contains four internal switches that indicate the transmission gear range selector lever position. The PCM supplies ignition voltage to each switch circuit. As the gear range selector lever is moved, the state of each switch may change, causing the circuit to open or close. An open circuit or switch indicates a high voltage signal. A closed circuit or switch indicates a low voltage signal. The PCM detects the selected gear range by deciphering the combination of the voltage signals. The PCM compares the actual voltage combination of the switch signals to a TR switch combination chart stored in memory.
You need a Tech2 scan tool to diagnose this problem ! possible range sensor !

1995 nissan sentra automatic trasmission will not go into passing gear


Gear shifts happen depending on how far the gas pedal is
pressed & the load on the vehicle

Transmission pressures change as you drive under different conditions,so the shifts happen at different speeds

There is no passing gear

If you have a 4 speed,you have 3 forward gears & an overdrive
forward gear, plus torque converter lock-up

You saying you have no 4th to 3rd downshift or whatever

Maybe the transaxle is failing mechanically inside-worn out

Does Shift solenoid A&B control shifting into 5th gear on an automatic transmission?


First check the transmission MIL code , that will tell you if it is the Over Drive lock solenoid mal functioning , Do a tranny oil change with filter ,then replace fifth gear pressure solenoid , when you are there already .

Trans stuck in 4th gear shift lever sloppy


bad transmission, I changed one just like it,first thought the clutch had locked up, but changed that and same thing (locked up)and took pan and topshifter out, and the gears actually heat welded themselves together, my guess as to reason would be lack of gear oil. only fix is to replace transmission or rebuild, but with gears in that shape better bet would be to find another, and make sure you change gear oil and fill to proper level

The shifting gear locks, like inside the console. the only way I can change the gears is when i stick a pin into a small hole located on the top left of the console.


Either your brake light fuse, brake switch or shift lock solenoid is bad. Any one of those being bad will keep the shifter locked. Have them checked out.

I have a 1991 accord lx. Was only functioning in


No, those sensors are seperate from transmission, should be a solenoid that is electrically controlled inside the transmission that controls the shifting.

2007 Nissan Versa gear shift locked in Park. My Versa will not shift out of park unless i push the shift lock button. What could be the problem?


There is a switch under your break padal, which is responsible for tail lights and gear lock. if that switch is working fine and your tail lights are working fine then check the electronic lock of gear which is under the cover of gear.

Shift Gear locked


Possible there is too much tension on the driveline. Jack up both rear wheels and try to move shifter. I could be wrong but it's the only thing that makes sense at this point!
