Sounds like the cable from the shifter to the transmission probable snaped. It happened to me at the emission inspection station. What a nightmare. To check this you will need some help. Have someone set in the car and apply the brakes as well as the emergency brake just incase. Get under the truck and find the cable from the shifter to the transmission. Have the person in the truck move the shifter lever from park to another gear. If the arm where the cable attaches to the transmission does not move when the lever is moved it is the cable. They are relitively cheap and you should be able to replace it yourself.

My suzuki verona 04, gear shifter is stuck on park, i have to hit the brakes severally for it to move to drive.


There is a lock mechanism that prevents moving shifter out of PARK unless your foot is on the brake. You can bypass this by sticking a small flat blade screwdriver or a key into the little slot on the console by the shift lever.

Are your brake lights coming on when you press the brake pedal?The shift lock is released electrically when your foot is on the brake, and the sensor is tied to the brake light switch circuit. The brake light switch can be seen if you look under the dash at the brake arm. First, check the connector. If the switch is out of adjustment, you can screw it in or out to adjust. Or just buy a new one.

Gear shift will not move from park


First thing to check is your brake lights. The brake interlock for the shifter relies on the switch that turns your brake lights on. If it's not working, you won't have brake lights OR the ability to move the shifter out of park. In an emergency, most of these vehicles have a small plug near the shifter that you can remove, push a button, and move the shifter without pushing the brake pedal.

Good luck.

I believe this vehicle is equipped with a shift lock that necessitates depressing the brake pedal before it can be shifted out of "Park". This is a safety feature designed into almost every car made nowadays to prevent unintended movement of the vehicle when shifting out of "Park". The Shift Lock solenoid is triggered by the brake light switch located near the top of the brake pedal arm. Starting with the "basics", check to see if the brake lights are working (they should illuminate when the brake pedal is pressed. If the brakes lights do not come on. then proceed to check the brake/stop light fuse. Replace if needed. Once the brake lights are functioning, the shift lock should "disengage" and allow you to shift out of "Park" when the brake pedal is pressed. If the fuses are okay, but still no brake lights, then the Brake Light Switch may need to be replaced.

Brake lights working but won't shift out of "Park"? Check for a separate fuse for the Shift Lock Solenoid. Replace if needed. Otherwise the Shift Lock Solenoid may need to be replaced. This will require disassembly of the console to access the part.

This may be caused by a bad brake light switch or fuse, have someone check and see if the brake lights are coming on, the shifter release works on the brake switch, this is to make sure you have your foot on the brake before shifting out of park, if the brake lights are not working then thats the problem, start by check all the fuses, if the fuses are good then i would say you have a bad brake light switch, this switch is located on the brake pedal bracket, if you follow the pedal up to the top will will see a switch that the pedal pushes in when its released and allows it to pop out when the pedal is pushed, this switch most of the time is the problem,good day,

1992 toyota camry v6 auto. can't move shifter. car starts and ste


Car must be on and brake pedal depressed to shift. If you have no brake lights then the car doesn't know the pedal is depressed and will not shift out of park. This car has an interlock overide on the shifter console, push it and it will come out of Park. You will need a brake light switch tho.

Shifting Gear is Stuck in ''Park'' position


u will need to check and make sure the brake lights work, the shifter is tied to the brake light switch, if the brake lights don't work or the brake pedal is not pushed a gear shifter lock out is engaged, this is a Federally mandated safety feature.

2000 daewoo won't shift from park and no brake lights


Sounds like the park/brake shift interlock switch is bad.

Or

"An actuator solenoid and module assembly, located on the lower portion of the steering column, locks the shifter in Park whenever it receives a signal that the ignition switch is in the ON position. When the module receives a signal from the Brake On-Off (BOO) switch that indicates the brake pedal is depressed, it unlocks the shifter so that it can be shifted out of Park."

It says the most common failures in the system are the fuse and the BOO switch, and if they are fine, special tools are needed to diagnose.

To disable the system: Apply the parking brake, turn the ignition key to LOCK, then remove the key. Insert the key and turn it to OFF. Press the brake pedal. Shift to neutral, start the vehicle and select the desired gear.
