Question about 2006 Toyota Sequoia
Engine runs fine. Apply brake, depress shift lock button and hear solenoid activate but can't move the shifter.
You're going to have to look into the console, it sounds as if it has a broken solenoid rod or it's disconnected. The fact that you can hear it click verifies the system is electrically sound. I hope this helps. Take care.

that means the pin that the knob presses down is stuck on something. if you take the shifting panel off it showes everything. then there will be a plastic guide. see what the pin is sticking on and there you are.

There is a solenoid located under the shifter housing that releases the shifter lock once the break is pressed. One of two three things has likely happened. One, there is gunk or syrup on the solenoid from spilled coffee or soda on it and it needs to be cleaned with alcohol. Two, the solenoid is bad and needs to be replaced. Three, the linkage has popped off or broke and needs to be repaired.
You can override the switch if you need to.
You will need to take the housing off around the shifter and find the solenoid. There is usually a manual override switch that you can push to get it to release. Sometimes it is an off color like pink or red.

Do the brake light work? No brake lights and it won't shift out of park. Check your fuses and check for loose wires. Check your brake light switch. If that has failed, you won't be able to get out of park. The other one if the shift lock solenoid which is in the shifter assembly. The brake shift interlock switch prevents the car being shifted from park unless the brake pedal is depressed. Try to apply power/ground to the proper wires & see if it will activate.. If it does, then the problem is between the brake light switch & that solenoid. Could be the wires or the switch.Make sure the shifter cable is still held down in place at the shifter assembly & under the hood. It is the interlock switch that you hear/feel clicking.It is for the prior generation but may still apply.
Good Luck and hopefully you soon will be on the road again...;-)
