SOURCE: My gear shift is stuck and will not move from park

do the brake lights work? the system has a lock out that keeps you from moving out of park unless the brake circuit is activated, hence no brake lights no park lock out release, if the brk lights do work u most have a stuck or defective park lock out solenoid.

SOURCE: The gear shift is stuck in park. The wheel moves

Make sure you have brake lamps. The shift interlock solenoid is powered by the brake lamp switch.

Gear shift stuck in park


Could be the brake switch, or the shift lock solenoid. You may be able to take the shifter out of park by unlocking the key switch but not turning the switch to the on position. The components would need to be tested.

Car stuck in park took cap off near gear shift to release it but when you put it back in park same problem . brake light switch not working


the brake light switch needs to be repaired first before you can accurately diagnose the shift interlock system. the brake light switch sends power to the shift interlock solenoid for the gearshift to release from the park position.

Gear shift won't move from Park sometimes. It's stuck!


If the car is inclined severly the shifter will be harder to move as more of a load rests on the park gear. You may have to pull it hard but should come out of park. Make sure your foot is firmly on the brake pedal too and the key is in the on position

Car stuck in park gear


I think you have Check Gear Shift Liver Lock System. Then You have to check Brake Padel Switch because you can move gear shifter by pressing brake padel. Is your brake Padel switch defect stuck in any position.

Shifting Gear is Stuck in ''Park'' position


u will need to check and make sure the brake lights work, the shifter is tied to the brake light switch, if the brake lights don't work or the brake pedal is not pushed a gear shifter lock out is engaged, this is a Federally mandated safety feature.

Key gets stuck in ignition


My daughter drives a Suzuki, my solution to her is: while the gear shift lever is in park, lightly put pressure on the gear shift lever, through the park position and while pressing the gear shift towards park light rock left to right while trying to remove the key.

The interlock between the transmission and the ignition switch needs to be adjusted/ repaired or replaced.
