You can manually shift the selector lever on top of the transmission. You chould check the likage, it must be broken or disconnected either on the transmission end or on the selector itself.

1990 Volvo 740 is stuck in partk. Where is the shift lock release?

It is under the Gear Selector so you will have to pull out the center console. Your best bet is to find another Gear Selector in a wrecking yard. Time consuming but not difficult to replace.

My 2008 Kia Sorento is stuck in four wheel drive. How do I fix it? Thanks, Bill

I assume that the vehicle has a rotating knob on the left side of the dash for four wheel drive. It may have been put into 4 low by mistake. To get it out, start the vehicle and put it in drive, select 4 low on the 4 wheel drive selector, take your foot off the brake and get the vehicle rolling at a walking pace (1-2 m.p.h.) then move the selector to 4 high, stop the vehicle and move selector to 2 high.

1999 Volvo S80 stuck in park

Hi there this sounds like a common fault it also happens on xc70 xc90 an new s80 if you remove the suround from the gear selector you should be able to see the gear linkage cable too the left hand side towards the back of the cable there is a push fit lock nut it is yellow and plastic which locks cable into position it sounds as though the push nut is not gripping the cable if you gently prise open the yellow part to the left of th car it should open the cable is spring loaded so it will stay in position after releaseing the nut push the nut as far forward as it will go so it moves forward on the cable once you have done this push the yellow push nut back in to secure the cable then you should be able to use your car again but what i would sugest is to get it replaced as its started to wear and will only happen again at a later date hope this helps tony.t

My SUV is stuck in the 4X4L mode.

In order to get it to shift in or out of 4 lo the transmission must be in neutral with your foot on the brake and moving less than 5 mph. If it still does't change try tapping the shift motor with a block of wood, it could be stuck
