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.

What can I do if will not go into park and I can not get my key out of ignition? 2000 dodge intrepid please help


check and see if the steering wheel is locked into place. if it is try turning the wheel a little more to see if you can get the key to turn to unlock the wheel. see if the key will come out with the wheel unlocked. you could try putting it into neutral and applying the parking brake. see if the key will come out. also you could try getting under the car and the should see a cable connected to a little lever on the transmission. push the lever to get it in to park. you can manually put the car in park from there. make sure you have the parking brake on and/or wheel chocks to make sure the car dosent roll on you.

My 2005 dodge magnum will not come out of park


I was having the same problem with my Firebird. make sure the brake pedal is fully compressed when trying to shift gears. if it still will not budge it may be caused by the transmission lock, which is an anti-theft mechanism. the solenoid in the mechanism may not be functioning correctly. when i had this problem i just removed the lock from the transmission.

I have a 2005 dodge magnum sxt that will not shift from park.it's lock in the park position.how do I fix this problem.


If this vehicle was equiped with the brake safety system, you have to have the brake depressed to change gears, then you will need to start by looking to see if somehow the brake sensor came loose. I assume this has a console shifter, remove enough of the console that you can visually see if the actuator is actually moving up when you pull the shift release in to move the shifter. If this is working and there is nothing under the vehicle in teh way of the shifting arm the transmission needs to be serviced.
