u have to have the brake pushed in to take vehicle out of park.. if that doesn't do it.. there is a brake switch on the back of your brake pedal that when u shove brake in it sends a signal to shifter telling it that the brake is depressed.. that switch might be bad..
CHECK BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH MAKE SURE BRAKE LIGHTS IS ON.IF NO CHECK BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH FUSE IF POWER GOING TO BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH AND BRAKE LIGHTS DONT WORK REPLACE BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH.IF BRAKE LIGHTS WORKING.PROBLWM COULD BE IN BRAKE TRANSMISSION SHIFT INTERLOCK SOLENOID.REASON I SAY CHECK BRAKE LIGHT SWITCH.WHEN YOU DEPRESS BRAKE PEDAL THE BRAKE TRANSMISSON SHIFT SOLENOID ENERGIZE SO YOU CANT GET CAR OUT OF PARK.
There are actually 2 pink release buttons. The one at the right rear of the shifter is the brake interlock. The other one is at the left front with a cable attached to it and it is the reverse lockout. There are 2 steps to getting out of P. Try it without pressing the brake and you'll notice that you can't even move the stick to the right to leave P. Press the brake (or press the pink brake interlock tab down) and you'll be able to move the stick to the right and a little bit back toward R but you won't be able to get into R. That's where the other pink piece comes in. Push this pink piece straight towards the rear of the car and you'll bypass the reverse lockout.
This gets you moving but now to figure out why the reverse lockout is not working correctly. Anyone know the solution?
The BTSI (Brake Transmission Shift Interlock) has a small spring retainer on the park safety. A small plastic tab breaks & releases the spring. This requires the shifter to be disassembled in order to be repaired.
Repaired mine Sunday May 1st and can provide detailed instructions if desired.
If you are lucky, your brake interlock is the only problem. There is a bypass switch located beside the gear selector. Remove the small "cubby" bin located next to the gear shift by simply lifting up to remove. You will note a small access port and a pink button contained therein. Press the pink button to override the brake interlock.
If you still cannot shift into park, then the shifter must be removed for the spring repair. Even if yours is still under warranty, you will get another shifter that will eventually fail due to poor engineering.
Please let me know if you would like my assistance.
check to see if your brake lights are working if they are not working check power to the brake light fuse if its ok the brake lihgt switch maybe bad if the power is not getting to the shifter lock from the brake light switch the car will not come out of park
