2005 lexus gs 300 stuck in park


could be the fuse for the brake lights if its blown you will not be able to get the transmission out of park its a safety precaution built into the car so your not driving with out brake lights check all your bulbs in the tail lights and turn signals look for water in the tail/signal light this will cause the blown fuse and the bulb will be broken and the glass will be discolored with white smoked tint to it this comes from the bulb exploding from +/- touching each other blowing the fuse, another thing to check would be your brake light switch if you change the fuse and step on the pedal and if the fuse blows and the same thing happens that's the problem LATER MAN!

Tip

Automatic trasmission lever is stuck in park position


When this happens, usually it is because of a failure in the gearshift selector switch solenoid.
The gearshift selector solenoid is the switch that unlock the lever from park position when driver turns on the ignition and release brake pedal.
When brake pedal is depressed with selector in park position, this energizes the solenoid, unlocking the shifter.
Teh solenoid is energised by same circuit connecting the brake lights.
When for some reason (a short for example) the brake light fuse that protects the circuit blows, this will result in a failure to energize the solenoid, and lever won't be released from park position.
You find the fuse in the fuse box, on Discovery this is fuse number 1. This is a 15 Amps blue fuse. Fuse is located in the fascia fuse panel.
In most cases you fix the problem by replacing the brake light fuse.

Another reason for a failure to energize the solenoid is a faulty brake light switch.
This means the solenoid itself is faulty and need to be replaced.

How to proceed:

Check brake lights. If brake lights are not working, check and replace fuse number one in the fuse box. This will solve the problem in most cases.

If fuse keeps blowing there must be a short in the brake lights wiring.
You will need to access the rear light access panels and unplug the wiring harnesses that connects to the tail light assemblies.
Replace the fuse and try again to start the car, with all tail lights harnesses disconnected. If it starts drive the vehicle to the nearest mechanic, the vehicle will not be safe without tail and brake lights.

When fuse is not blowing check the brake light switch. Remove the panel above the brake pedal. There you find several switches, the second from the bottom will be the brake light switch. Unplug the switch connector, put parking brake on, turn on ignition and short the two green wired pins.
You should hear a click, while shorting the contacts move the shifter out of park position

When brake light are working fine, and lever stays on park position, it is usually the solenoid or its connections that are faulty. Try connecting directly the solenoid to power. The solenoid is connected to red and black wires. Apply 12 Volts across the wires, following polarity. If this worked the solenoid will click, and you will be able to move the gear out of parkposition. When there is no click you need to replace the faulty solenoid that is located in the shifter assembly.

2005 kia sorento change ext fuse and it keep blowing


I have a 2004 Sorento EX and my EXT fuse along with the stop lamp fuse kept blowing. The ext would blow as soon as I turned the vehicle on. The stop lamp would blow after a couple pushes of the brake pedal causeing me to have no rear lights at all regarding brake and the lights that you turn on at night. After much reading online in forums such as this, I was led on a chase looking for grounding wires, broken wires, dirty battery terminals, faulty altinator, and for a drl module. I could not find a drl module as I now do not believe there is one in sorentos, or at least in mine. I then came to the brake switch that is located on the arm of the brake pedal. I disconnected it, put a couple of new fuses in, started my vehicle and checked my fuses, and at last they did not blow! I reconnected the brake switch and checked the fuses and they had blown. I have a hunch that I am dealing with a faulty brake switch. Hope this helps

Both brake lights went out at the same time i changed the bulbs but the brake lights still wont light up when i depress the brakes but my rear lights still work


ok so what your saying is that the tail lights still work but no brake lights work, you've replaced the bulbs, next step is to check the fuse for the brake lights, if its bad just replace it, if its good, you need to check the brake light switch thats located at the top of the brake pedal arm, ( up under the dash where the brake arm attaches to the mount, you will see a switch,,, sometimes they just get stuck, so depress the brake and see if the switch is moving at all, if not, remove the switch and replace it as long as the adjustment looked to be correct.

Tail lights and brake lights are combined. I have tail lights but no brake lights. fuses look good.


No they are different systems going to the same place, the tail lights use one fillament in the bulb and the brake and turn signal use the other, a couple things to check, brake light fuse, brake switch (located on the brake peddle) check for power, I have also run into the 4 way flasher that were the problem, more than likely the brake switch

Signal lights tail lights work but when i step on the brake pedal the fuse blows


you may have a shorted brake light switch or a wire at the switch that is shorted to ground.the switch is located at the base of the brake pedal lever and has 2 wires connected to it.check to see if the (I think)the orange wire is firmly connected to the plug connector,this wire should be the power wire to the switch and is not the problem as the fuse only blows when the pedal is pushed.the other wire(I think) is a white wire,this wire goes from the switch to the wiring to the brake lights.this wire could be shorting out causing the fuse to blow,and needs to be checked.

Brake Light Fuse


You have a short in the lighting system. Try removing both brake bulbs and with a new fuse installed.. does it still blow the fuse? If not, then install one bulb at a time and repeat the test.. You probably have a short in or around the bulb socket.. Hope this helps
