Okay, you are correct, the key is stuck because of the shifter lock wont release, the most common reason is its stuck, you will need to remove the covering around shift to get to shifter lock release solenoid, there you will clean and lube it, you will need to move it by hand as you spray wd40 on the arms, you will see how it work by pressing the shift release and you will see to lever that gets pushed, it wont move because its stuck but you will see the levers move inside, hope this helps, good day.

I think the shift inter-lock solenoid was stuck at the time. it can also be your brake switch did not make contact. next time check your brake lights to see if they work while it hapen. so just wait!

I have a 1990 toyota p/u 4x4 automatic. It stuck in park. Will not release to drive. What is solution


Repair the shift lock mechanizm (either the linkage or an electrical issue) or to get by, use the shift lock release which is typically a small hole next to the shifter that may or may not be marked as the shift lock release. Place a key or the like into the hole to release the shifter from park.

it could be the solenoid that releases the lock on the shift,when you press the brake pedal the shift lock should release when the key is in the ignition and you can the move the shift,you need to check the soleniod near the TBar

My 1998 Tracer is stuck in park. When I push on the brake, the button on the shifter will not push in.


Hello! It sounds as if your gear shift lock isn't working properly - it should release when you depress the brake pedal. You're not stuck, however. There is a small plastic piece to the side of the gear shift on the console - you can pry this piece up and off, revealing a hole underneath. Insert a screwdriver straight down and you will push on the manual gear shift release button - once you do that you will be able to move the gear shift. This can be caused by a few things - weak battery, or the release button is broken behind the brake pedal.


Hope this helps and good luck!
