My tracker is stuck in park, won't shift , the shifter will not move , the car starts now what?


Most vehicles have a locking solenoid on the shifter that prevents you from moving the shifter unless the brake pedal is pressed. If the vehicle will start, but the shifter won't release when you press the brake pedal, then either the switch that activates the solenoid on the brake pedal is bad, or the solenoid itself is bad. Most vehicles also have an emergency release mechanism for the shifter that can bypass this restriction. There is usually a slot or recess that has a release button that you can insert something thin and release the shifter manually. Check your users manual for details as the method can vary from year to year and model to model.

Stuck in park 2005Chrysler grand Cherokee 6cyl how to release


If you are stuck in Park because the shifter won't move, then you probably have a problem with the shift lock solenoid. It is supposed to release the shifter when the brake pedal is pressed. Most vehicles have a manual release for the shifter if the solenoid fails. You may be ale to see it if you search for it, otherwise look in the owners manual for info on where it is and how to activate it. If you can move the shifter and are still stuck in Park, then you either have a shift linkage problem or a transmission issue.

Why does it get stuck in park


Chris: According to MyAutomaticTransmission.com: "Shifter Lever

Recognizing that you might one day find yourself in such a predicament, vehicle manufacturers incorporated a quick and easy method for manually releasing a shifter stuck in Park. Follow these 4 simple steps.

1. Set the emergency brake.

2. Locate the shifter lock override slot located on the shifter console near the shifter lever. Normally, the slot is plugged with a small plastic cap.

3. Remove the plastic cap covering the override slot and insert a key, nail file or similarly shaped object into the slot and push down.

4. While pushing down, depress the brake pedal, grab the shifter and push in the shifter lock button located on the shifter as you normally do and then move the shifter to the Neutral position. With the brake pedal still depressed, start the engine with the shifter in the Neutral position.

NOTE: If the shifter lever will still not move, repeat the process making sure to press down firmly on the locking mechanism and the brake pedal simultaneously as you attempt to move the shifter lever.


NOTE: Continuing to drive your vehicle in this condition will not cause any additional damage. You will just have to use this procedure to release the shifter each time you attempt to move the shifter out of the Park position." I hope this helps you!

How do i manually unlock gear shifter


If you cannot shift out of PARK (P), ease the pressure on the shift lever. Push the shift lever all the way into PARK (P) as you maintain brake application. Then move the shift lever into the gear you want. If you are still having a problem shifting, then have your vehicle serviced soon.

You must depress brake pedal to get shifter to move. Shifter unit is electrical, not mechanical to the transmission!

My crysler 300 - C is stuck in park and wont let shifter move i move the pink pin under shifter plate left and right and still wont shift


This car uses a park lock system, it is operated by the brake light circuit, so is if the brake lights are not on when the pedal is pushed the park lock will not released. if the brake lights do work you have other more serious issues **** as a defective lock solenoid. The owners manual gives the bypass procedure around this problem, check the index.

Gear shift stuck in park on a 2001 gran am. howdo


It is probably not the shift linkage causing your concern. All modern vehicles have a feature called Shift Interlock. It doesn't allow the shifter on automatic equipped vehicles to be moved from park without the key in the ignition and the brake applied. There should be a bypass that will allow you to atleast drive the car for the time being. Check your owners manual to find where it is. It's usually around the shifter. The most common cause for this problem are the brake switch or the shift lock solenoid.

I parked the car and went start the car again now it is stuck in park it does start.


Do your brake lights work?
If not, check your fuse for them. You likely need to apply your brake to release the solenoid to allow the shifter to move.
Many vehicles had an manual override slot near the shifter you could push a key or small screwdriver down into to release it.
