On a 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe, the interlock is a cable without a solenoid. There is no release on the shift handle on this model. The cable end at the brake pedal has a little retainer that slips out of position and causes the cable to not pull the interlock lever forward. Once is slips out you might as well replace the cable because it will happen again.

If you accidentilly or purposely lock the shift knob there is usually a small key lock on the console by the shifter that you can insert your starting key into and turn and it releases the locked shifter

Shift Interlock System
The shift interlock system consists of:

Shift lock release

There should two brake switches located above the brake petal, one is designed to activate the rear brake lamp relay, the second would be the park/neutral safety switch which may be defective and failing to activate the shift handle release relay. You can test this by first turn the ignition key forward then jump the two wires behind the switch, you should then hear the transmission shift handle lock release. If this is heard, the switch has failed and requires replacement.

Shift lock release honda civic 2008

Most likely you have a problem with the shift interlock solenoid located under the shifter. It gets its signal from the brake switch every time its pressed. If your brake lights come on when brake pedal is pressed, then you can assume the brake switch is o.k.

Can't shift car out of park

There is a shift lock release lever located just to the left of the gear shift. Pop off the plastic cover, and then use a flathead screwdriver or similar instrument to push down and release the lever. While you are holding that down, you will be able to override the lock and shift out of park. Then release the lever.

I have a 1990 toyota p/u 4x4 automatic. It stuck in park. Will not release to drive. What is solution

Repair the shift lock mechanizm (either the linkage or an electrical issue) or to get by, use the shift lock release which is typically a small hole next to the shifter that may or may not be marked as the shift lock release. Place a key or the like into the hole to release the shifter from park.
