Question about Toyota Pickup

1 Answer

I have a 1992 Toyota DLX ExtraCab Pickup with a column-mounted automatic shift. The truck has sat for a couple of months without being driven. Now, when I attempt to drive it, the engine starts just fine, but I can't move the shifter out of Park. This should release when I depress the brake pedal as it has done for years. The brake lights work just fine, so the switch appears to be doing its job. All fuses check out -removed them with new ones just to be sure. Now I'm stumped. I would first want to know where the brake/transmission interlock override is located so I can at least move the truck. Can you help?

Not super familiar with these but i believe you can turn the key to the first or second position and shift out of park ... put it in neutral and start the truck and move it. I do however know that not all of the interlock systems are electrical...on the ignition switch itself may have a cable that broke or come disconnected. if you remove the column covers you should be able to see it. hope this helps

My 1992 Toyota 4x4 pickup key won't turn all the way off without disconnecting the battery. What could cause this?

is this a console shift? if so its most likely not getting the signal that its in park. There is a switch on the shifter that wont the key be removed without the vehicle being in park.

1992 toyota pick up extra cab, extra long deluxe... what should the tire pressure be?

The Manufacturer's recommended tire size and inflation decal should be in the door jamb below the latching mechanism on the driver's side door, but if it is not there, 29-30psi front 32-34psi rear. You can go with 32psi at all four corners. That is the pressure i run in my '85 Xtra Cab DLX and it works great.

Hope this helps,

Toyota pickup 1988 V6 Auto tranny does not shift into low 1

I guess the best , easiest & cheapest thing to do, right of the start is get fluid & filter changed, and lube all cables & linkages thoroughly, unless that's all been done recently.
