Q: Car not moving

asked by on

My car won't move.

Hi there. Im unsure of the issue you are reporting. There are countless amounts of issues your vehicle may be experiencing. If your vehicle is stuck in park there is a brake switch that commonly goes out on vehicles, that will allow you to shift out of park. Also you maybe experiencing locked wheels due to your brake being stuck. An adjusting of the brakes would solve this issue. I would strongly suggest having a certified mechanic sent by YourMechanic come to your residence and diagnose your issue more precisely in person.
