    I have same issues. Shift on center console. got it into drive and got home and now only goes to neutral and park. I opened it up and found that everything seems to be connected OK (best I can tell). I cannot surpress the thumb button on the handle to engage gear change. My break does no seem to trigger solonoid or something. Not sure what to do now, any suggestions? thanks,

Ok, other than the obvious question of are you applying the brake before shifting my next would be does the gear shift move at all? If it does is there any resistance or not? If there is no resistance it is possible that the shift cable is broken. Also is the shifter on the column or in the center console? If it is in the center the plunger that allows the shifter to move may be stuck or broken. There is a clip that holds the handle on, remove the clip and ensure the button on the shifter handle is moving and pressing down on the nylon piece that "unlocks" the shifter. Lastly the problem could be with the "shift interlock" which is a cable that ties the shifter to the brake pedal. If the interlock is damaged it will prevent the vehicle from shifting from park. I hope i have helped in some way.

WHAT DOES AUTO MEAN


Probably referring to gearboxes
A manual gearbox in a car requires a clutch that has to be disengaged when changing gear. This is done by a pedal operated by the drivers left foot. So a manual car has 3 pedals.
An automatic or auto gearbox does not have a clutch so there is only 2 pedals.
The auto car is started with the gear lever in P for Park and then moved to D for Drive. All gear changes are done automatically

Park brake keeps flashing and beeps


Usually this means one of two things. Your parking brake is still applied and your shifter is not in park...or, your parking brake is not fully retracted and not touching it's fully retracted limit switch. Cycle your parking brake several times with the vehicle off. When you release it let it disengage fully. Start the vehicle and put it in gear but don't travel (foot on regular brake). If your parking brake is fully disengaged then your dash light for the parking brake should be extinguished. If you STILL have this problem then your limit switch needs to be adjusted or replaced.

ABS light stays on if car is started with parking brake engaged.


The ABS light illuminates when there is an "out of specification" condition. From your description, it sounds like your parking brake cable may require tightening, or there may be an issue where the rear brakes are not properly releasing when the parking brake is released. With car that is nearly 20 years old, it is not inconceivable that the rear brakes and parking brake assembly may require regular service.

A good first step would be to have error codes read out by a local mechanic or auto parts store. This may give you a better indication of the specific problem. In any case, ANY brake warning should be taken VERY SERIOUSLY and corrected IMMEDIATELY, as you may have a potentially dangerous potential of catastrophic brake failure. PLEASE GET THE ISSUE FIXED RIGHT AWAY!

What is the fix for auto door lock on my 2007 chevy silverado engage and disengage while driving on the freeway after the vehicle is warm


Try disengaging the "Auto Lock" feature in the Driver Information System when shifting in/out of Park and at a certain MPH. If that keeps it from doing it, you know the BCM Body Control Module is controlling the action. It could be it "thinks" it's unlocked when it not. May need to replace the power lock assembly. You could also try taking the battery cables off to reset the PCM/BCM. That may fix it too. Worst case, it is the BCM, and they are not cheap. Good Luck!

2000 Mazda MPV Starts & runs won't go out of Park Shifter handle moves won't change gears??


I had this issue in the past. All I did was to replace the brake switch. This part is located behind the brake pedal. Btw, if you this run into this issue again in the future, you can always push this switch with your finger and it's located on top of your steering wheel enclosure, this will disengage the shifter.there is a small rectangle shape cover that you need to remove first.

1500 parking brakes wont disengage


This may sound like a silly answer, but, how often did you use your parking brake previously?
Parking brake cables tend to rust inside the sheath if they are not used very often.
When you apply the parking brake, you use a fair amount of physical force to engage the park brake.
If you do not use your parking brake very often, the inside of the cable may be rusted enough that when you release the park brake, the cable will not release (cable will not slide inside the sheath), as there is only the pressure of the brake shoe return springs disengage the park brake.

I have a exclamation mark showing on my dash what does this mean? When I purchased the car I did not get the book with it.


You have a Canadian model car. The exclamation mark in a circle in parentheses is the parking brake indicator. Make sure your parking brake is FULLY disengaged. If you have been driving without fully disengaging the parking brake, you may have damaged your rear brakes and/or rotors.

If the parking brake is fully disengaged, you may have a faulty switch at the brake handle.

Will not shift out of park


If the trans won't go out of part then the part lock-out is engaged, this is disengaged when the brake lights are activated, make sure the brake lights work, if they don't check the brake light switch (and the fuse) with a 12 volt test light to see if it works, until they work u are stuck.
