1994sidekick stuck in park


check to see if the brake lights come on when you press brake pedal. if they don't it is stuck in park because your brake light switch doesn't work and the swich also tells the shifter lock to unlock so you can move shifter. so If no brake lights fix brake light switch and that will fix it. the switch is located at the top of brake pedal

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.

Camry 97 shift stuck in park position


Hello. Welcome to FixYa. Please allow me to help out on this.

If your car is stuck in Park (the shifter won't move), you either have a blow nbrake light fuse, a bad brake light switch, or the shift interlock solenoid under the shifter is bad.

The fuse is the most common, followed by a failed or unplugged brake light switch. It is rare for the shift interlock solenoid to fail, however.

Check your brake lights and see if they are working. The solenoid in the shifter is energized by you stepping on the brake. If your break lights do not work... your stuck in park. This can be caused by a bad brake light switch located above your brake pedal or.... a blown hazard / brake light fuse. Check them first.....

HAVE SOMEONE GO BEHIND THE CAR AND CHECK AND MAKE SURE THE BRAKE LIGHTS ARE ON, IF THEY DON'T WORK THEN THERE IS NO POWER TO THE BRAKE PARK INTER-LOCK SOLENOID AND YOU CAN NOT DIS-ENGAGE PARK. IF THEY DON'T WORK CHECK THE FUSE, IF IT IS OK REPLACE THE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH.
