I would say yes. Replacing the nuetral safety switch should correct both issues.

07 honda fit auto trnas not going into park. I ALREADY DISCONNECT THE SHIFT CABLE OUT OF SHIFTER AND SHIFT LEVER SEEMS TO MOVE FREELY, BUT THE CABLE SEEMS TO STUCK, HOOKED IT BACK ON AND SHIFTED BACK


Shift interlock ! an key lock It's a safety system that won't allow you to shift out of park unless you foot is pushing on the brake pedal , plus it won't allow you to put it into park or turn off the ignition if vehicle is moving . It's electical , brake switch , lock solenoid , may also have a body module of some kind for control . It may have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes stored . The best way to diagnose this would be to buy a repair manual so you read up on how it works .What I said above is just a general explanation of the system . You should also look at a wiring diagram .

97 mazda 626 wont shift from park. release button on side of shifter wont push in. removed knob, plastic rod in center wont move


The 1st thing you need to do is check the brake lights, if they are not wiorking the park lock solenoid doesn't get power and the park lock remains engaged.

When I want to pass from park to drive, it is stuck to park. Motor is running normally. please help...


If the vehicle will not shift out of park, a brake light switch or shift lock solenoid is most likely the problem.

It wont let me move the shifter out of park


Shift interlock solenoid is probably bad.. there is a spot in the console if you look that will allow you to depress a tab that will allow the shifter to move.

make sure brake lights work most cars wont shift out of park unless brake is on. they use the brake light switch for this though some have a seperate switch on the brake pedal
check ALL fuses under dash and under hood replace any that are bad

Car wont shift from park


check your brake lights also, if none then you need to repair the wire that connects to the brake light switch at the brake pedal.....and or replace the brake light switch

The sifter wont move form park.


I have the same car and problem..if you take apart the cup holder, and the silver plates around the shifter, you'll see bright pink parts. There is pink on the left side and the right side, its probably the right side pink part that broke. If you push that pink part towards the cup holders you can move it out of park. That piece broke and will need to be replaced.

Wont shift out of park unless I stick a screw driver in a small hole above gear shifter.


You must remove the console yes, and you need to replace the shift lock solenoid.

GEAR STUCK ON PARK AND WON'T MOVE


I think your brake shift interlock solenoid is not releasing the Park position when you apply the brake.

Check for a blown fuse first. see owner manual for location of fuse.

Also, check owner manual for how to manually bypass the interlock.

When you step on the brake pedal, it activates a solenoid that unlocks the shift linkage cable so it will move. It is a safety feature to ensure you have you foot on the brake and not the gas, as you shift out of park.

please rate highly if this helps.
