The solenoid that operates the cable to unlock the shifter is activated by the brake light circuit, 1st thing to do is verify the brake lights work, if they don't then that is the problem, if they do then the gear shifter release solenoid is at fault.

I had the same problem and the reset button did not work, but I found that there is a cable to the front and left of the shifter, and if you pull that cable in a SW direction, then I could move the gearshift at the same time. Temporary, obviously, but at least you can get it where you need it. Still don't know what the replacement part is that I need. Can anyone help with that?

SOURCE: 93 Mercury Tracer will not shift out of park.

This is probably happening because, underneath your shift console, there is a lever that keeps you from shifting from park without the keys in. The best way I found to fix this was, there are 6 screws, that keep you from getting to it, they are pretty visible, two right in front of the passenger and driver seat, 2 closer to where your feet would be if you were sitting in those seats, and two at the back of the e-brake console. Take this entire plastic off and you'll find that when you sit in your passenger seat, you can see a piece that is most likely dirty from spilled drinks and such, and if you push it, it may not budge, this is a solenoid, this is that piece that is keeping you from shifting from park, I recommend keeping and cleaning the solenoid if your solenoid is not completely corroded, in my case, I had to just destroy the entire thing.

The reason that solenoid piece is why you can't shift from park is because you have that solenoid piece, underneath your shifter, and when you push the button, it's hitting the solenoid. The reason for this is, the fact that your shifter uses a small cylindrical piece to guide and stay in gears, and that small cylindrical piece is probably hitting your solenoid.

The gear shift is stuck in park. I can depress the button on the gear shift, but it won't move.


Replace the gear shift. The solenoid you pushed down on is jammed. You can't buy just the solenoid.

Cannot push button in on gear shift


You need to have someone or two to push the car to get the pressure off. If you are facing downhill have them push the front end, if uphill push the back. Release parking brake first because that will keep it from moving. After pushing a few inches you should be released and can shift but be carefull you don't run anyone over (go for neutral with foot on brake) Hope this helps.

It has a brake-transaxle shift interlock. You should just push the brake in to shift, but if you have done that, and it still won't shift, with foot on the brake, push the shifter all the way into park. Sometimes they don't always go into park all the way. Also if you park on a hill, it puts pressure on the btsi, so you cant shift it. Have someone push the vehicle back, just enough to take the pressure off and it should shift. I had this happen to me with my Grand Am.

Vehicle stuck in park will not change gears. Will start fine


does the gear shifter move? if the gear shifter moves and it wont shift then you have broken linkage, if it wont move you may have ignition linkage problems or the button may not be pushing in all the way, also the brake pedal is tied in too

2007 Nissan Versa gear shift locked in Park. My Versa will not shift out of park unless i push the shift lock button. What could be the problem?


There is a switch under your break padal, which is responsible for tail lights and gear lock. if that switch is working fine and your tail lights are working fine then check the electronic lock of gear which is under the cover of gear.
