    when i try and shift, i have to do some weird jiggle thing in order for it to do so, or use both hands. it's really annoying.

    My 1992 Volvo 240 starts fine, but I can't get the shifter out of the park position. The button doesn't feel like it is going all the way down.

It's possible the shift lock solenoid, the wiring, or the fuse is bad.

Shift lever not shifting out of park mode even though the engine is starting fine?


If your shift lever is on the stirring colum, there is a button in the colum itself directly underneath the lever that usually retracts whrn you press the breaks, but in this case it isn;t. Simply remove the right portion of the stirring colum and press the button and put in gear while holding it that is a quick solution on putting it in gear but it is not a permenent fix.
