Jaguar shifters are a known problem. Make sure your brake lights work, have someone verify while stepping on brake pedal with key on. IF you have brake lights your shifter assembly is bad. Replace and you will be good to go.

Why wont my shifter come out of park and lights are out


If it is parked on an incline the best way to get out of park is to fully set parking brake, turn key to the on position but do not start. Should easily shift to neutral and back to park. Start vehicle and shift before removing brake.

My jeep wrangler 2008 - I shifted to reverse then to parking, when i release the breaks it kept going in reverse. So i turn off the engine. now it wont start the engine, neither the shifter will move


The shifter cable has broken more than likely ,Find the shift shaft on the transmission,,block the wheels and remove the shift cable from the shift shaft,put the gear shift in park,then shift the shift shaft in park,then it will start,Then of course you will have to replace the shift cable.

My 02 Dodge Stratus will not shift out of Park. Help?


If the engine starts, but wont shift out of park, you should check that your brake lights are working. The interlock solenoid is powered by the brake light switch, if the fuse is blown or if the brake light switch is bad, the car wont shift out of park...I hope this helps.

My mercury mariner starts fine but wont shift out of park. Mostly only does this after sitting awhile, it's a 2006 model year with center console shift. The shift button on shifter wont depress.


There is a shifter solenoid that prevents it from being shifted out of park without your foot on the brake pedal. The solenoid may be bad or your brake pedal switch may be bad.
