Question about Toyota Cars & Trucks
The gear shift will not shift into park, it does not go past reverse and the "P" does not light up on the shifter, it will start in neutral. 2001 toyota tundra
Could be the park lock solenoid. Thats the part that locks the shifter in park and requires you to press on the brake pedal to release.

If the engine stalls abruptly on your Cirrus, as if some one clamped
it, then I would suspect that the 'lock-up' function on the torque
converter of the transmission is in the lock-up position. That means it
is the same as popping the clutch on a conventional transmission car,
which cause the same stall. If you can't drive the car, I would call
around to several independent transmission shops to find one that is
familiar with the Chrysler 41TE transmission and that appears to be
honest. Ask if they have a diagnostic readout box to communicate with
the transmission control computer. If they do then have the car towed
there and let them try a readout. If they get a code 38 or 0740
(depending upon what year model you have there) then that would show
that the lock-up is the problem. If you are lucky the problem will be
with a solenoid switch or valve in the box on the side of the
transmission which can be corrected easily without removing the
transmission. Because this possibility (along with about 6 other
causes) is worth pursuing, I would want a shop that is not going to
talk you into a "rebuild" without first looking into all the possible
reasons for the lock-up condition so you aren't "taken for a ride".
So ask friends if they know a good honest shop and check them out as to how well they understand the Chrysler transmission. You may end up at a Chrysler dealer, but insist on their trying all the other possible causes before authorizing removal of the transmission which is a very expensive repair and may not be necessary.

your shifter linkage is mis alligned. could have hit it while 4 bying? anyway, look up the info for this procedure or buy the book on it at the parts store. have a partner sit in the car while you adjust to let you know when it is in place. easy fix

SOURCE: car will not shift into gear
Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.

it sounds like your gearshift cable is broken..if you can jack up vehicle and support it safely,get someone to move shifter and look on driver's side of transmission and see if linkage is moving on trans..linkage is up near top of trans..i have seen this problem before

look under the hood of your car and have someone move the shifter
look for the movement and see is it is hooked up

car not changing gears and not shifting out of park mode ,it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be
transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.
