You can also try resetting your battery for 2 minutes. Disconnect your negative cable, turn your headlights on, wait for 2 minutes, turn your headlights off, then reconnect the battery. I would also check your fuses. There is a 10 amp fuse that controls the TCU.
Or, remove the back-up fuse( 7.5 amp ) from the fuse box onder the hood. Right rear corner.

    I soldered two spade connectors to two four foot and ran them to the interior of the Honda. Then I soldered a single fuse holder to them. I put the 7.5 fuse in it for easier removal. Works great !

I have the same problems and it's a real pain but I was told by a Honda mechanic that he unhooked the battery cable and put it back on and it resets the indicator. It works for a little while but it has to be done over and over. When the indicator gets reset, it also releases the gear shift lock. I loosen the left side battery cable to the point where it will hold in place but can be lifted off without having to loosen the bolt. It seems to work best if you do this after parking it for the night and hooking it back up in the morning. I'd like to figure out how to fix it permanently but haven't gotten there yet.

Is there a way to get my 2004 Saturn out of Park gear when the shift lever won't move when I start the car? I think there is something under the dash to switch.


Vehicle has shift lock system .won't let it move from park unless the driver has brake pedal pressed . Do the brake lights work ? Does your saturn have console shift or on the steering coulmn ? There is a electric solenoid that locks the gear shifter lever . could be bad , or wiring .

My 2007 chev aveo wont start and cant move gear shift


most cars the brake light switch has to work properly for it to come out of gear and start properly. check this switch! Also First check to see if you have brake lights (if not the switch may have failed) secondly when with the ignition key on when you press the brake pedal do you hear a click from the area of the gear shift lever each time you press the brake pedal? If not the control module, wiring or solenoid may have a problem. First check all your fuses! Hope this helps, Good-Day!

Button on the gear shift does not press into move gear shift on mountaineer


Check to see if brake lights are working when you step on pedal...if not you may have a bad brake lamp switch on the pedal shaft.if the shifter interlock doesn't see power out of the switch it won't allow you to shift out of park. It's a safety system to prevent anyone from shifting into gear when they might be pressing gas pedal. If you're stuck, sometimes you can turn key on to just before dash lights come on, put vehicle in neutral and start and shift, but be careful because you may not have brake lights and could cause an accident or possibly get pulled over.

Shift into park


Could be the park lock solenoid. Thats the part that locks the shifter in park and requires you to press on the brake pedal to release.

Can't get gear shift to move out of park! Can turn key, to position just before instrument lights come on , and can move gear shift . Is there an adjustment on steering column ?


Can't say for sure but if you get no other answers you may want to check any brake pedal switches.
Lot of vehicles have electric solenoids that lock the shifter until the brake pedal is depressed.
When you press your brake pedal, do you hear a click?

After starting engine shifting lever will not come out of "park".


You probably have a blown fuse to teh shift lock solenoid or the brake lights. See if you have brake lights first. If no, check the brake swithc on the brake pedal arm.

There is an emergency bypass procedure in owner manual.

1990 Toyota PICK UP SR5 V6, when in gear and start releasing clutch pedal, truck starts moving forward with slight jerking. As soon as I give it gas, it starts to **** harder, forcing me to shift into 2nd...


Sounds like it is a clutch issue. Have the clutch plate checked or check the clutch and friction plates. I know it sounds strange but In reality we always press teh clutch all teh way in to shift. But going from 2nd to third you actually don't have to. Going from 3rd to 4th is even less of a distance. It may be a problem between the clutch and friction plates depending on when you last had them changed and adjusted.

Auto transmissiom will not come outof park when


Brake light switch is not working. Electric brake controller is activating the shift lock. It's either the switch or the brake light fuse.

Shift gears are locked!!


if you mean it will not come out of park then see if your brakes light light up when you step on the pedal if not check the brake light switch under the dash on top of the brake pedal.
