2002 dodge durango wont shift out of park

Put your foot on the brakes and have someone see if you have brake lights.This has a shift interlock that uses the brake lights to complete the circuit that unlocks the shifter from park. You can bypass this saftey feature by applying brake, engine off key off and moving shifter to neutral then starting the engine Dont forget to fix your brake lights !!

My 95 dodge dakota wont start unless I hold the shifting lever up into park. it is an automatic transmision and if I try to start it without holding up on the shifting lever it is just dead

Adjust the slack out of the transmission shift selector cable, (where it goes onto the side of the transmission). This will hold the lever in the up position as it should be, and there should be no further problems.

My 02 Dodge Stratus will not shift out of Park. Help?

If the engine starts, but wont shift out of park, you should check that your brake lights are working. The interlock solenoid is powered by the brake light switch, if the fuse is blown or if the brake light switch is bad, the car wont shift out of park...I hope this helps.

Hello, I have a 2002 dodge dakota, and it won't shift out of park. What is possibly the problem?

Hi, there is a solenoid at the base of the shifter that releases the lever from park. The solenoid is actuated by the switch above the brake pedal. Check to see of your brake lights are working. If not, replace the switch. If yes, the problem is likely the solenoid. Many vehicles have a slot on the console to release the shifter when the system fails to work as designed. If you can find that, maybe it will buy you some time until you have a chance to troubleshoot the problem.
