What causes my gear shift to lock in park


Manufacturers have designed the shifters to lock in the Park position. This is to prevent children from accidentally moving the shifter out of Park if they are playing behind the wheel (as they should not be of course). The ignition must be in the ON position, with the brake pedal pressed, to release the shifter from PARK. If there is a malfunction, most cars have a bypass release button hidden near the shifter. Check your owners manual for details if needed.

Parking brake light is on


You may have play in the park brake pedal due to park brake cables needing servive/repair. If you pull up on the park brake pedal when the light is on... will it go out? Another reason for this light to come on is low brake fluid. Have the level checked

Parking brake sensor won't release.


the park brake lamp is on. right? (symptoms and evidence)
that means the switch is bad. or wires to it shorted.
we'd, pull pull the switch wire and see lamp go off
then wed play with the switch to see if its good (test) or bad.
or the linkage to the switch is wrong.

2001 jeep grand cherokee driver side rear brake locked up. replaced brake pads and rotor. wheel still getting hot but not locked. could it be the parking brake?


it could be,, check the brake line going to the brake and see if it has play ,, also, it could be the caliper isn't flowing , once they get overheated the grease in them ( the slide pins) tend to get stuck ,, pull the caliper apart and clean all the old grease of and re lube them

1999 Z71 will not shift out of Park sometimes. Have to play with the brake pedal for shifter to release. ????


There are two things that could be going on if while "Playing with the brake pedel" it will eventurally release.

The 99 Z71 has an electrically controlled park lock accuator that releases when you put your foot on the brake. It is an electromatic maganetic slide that releases the shift lever out of park.

1) There could be a problem with the brake switch itself,

2) It could be the accuator in the shifter has become weak and no longer wants to pull out.

It is more likely #2, and that one is harder to replace. I would try a new brake switch first, and if it does not work, take it back and trade it for the lock accuator.

Hope this give you an idea where to go.

Car is stuck in Park. Will not shift after losing


Your car will only shift out of park with the brake pedal down. If this does not release it, there is a bypass switch that is located in your center console near your gear selector. You'll actually have to remove your center console in order to access this bypass switch.

Convertible top won't close on my 2000 boxster


POSSIBLY SWITCH THAT RECOGNIZED PARK BRAKE ON OR POSSIBLY BAD MOTOR. YOU CAN GET A TEST LIGHT AND PROBE THE CONNECTOR FOR POWER AND HAVE SOMEONE ACTIVATE MOTOR TO SEE IF ITS A PWR PROB OR MOTOR THATS BAD. MAYBE PLAY AROUND WITH PARK BRAKE,MAYBE SWITCH JAMMED OF STUCK AND NEEDS JARRING TO ACTUATE.

Installed a dvd player but i can't get it to play dvds


On the parking brake under the dash is a switch at the top that actuates the parking brake light. On most vehicles most are two wire switches, but some are one wire switches. If you have a two wire switch then you can unplug it and use a test light with the ignition turned on without starting the vehicle and test the wires to see which is the hot wire and then connect to the one that has no voltage on it because it is the ground for the switch. The wire is used to detect the parking brake position as engaged before it will allow viewing of the DVD player when the vehicle is not moving. When the brake is off the DVD player will not play DVDs, this is a safety measure so the driver will not be distracted while driving. Good Luck, RAC
