Q: Car not shifting out of park

My car won't shift out of park.

A: Your car uses a shift interlock that keeps ...

Your car uses a shift interlock that keeps it from coming out of park unless the brake pedal is pressed. If the brake light switch fails or if the locking solenoid fails then this will occur. The most common failure on this car is the shifter assembly itself failing. If the shifter is moving, but it is not coming out of park, then the shift cable may have broke. If you are going to have this checked out, consider YourMechanic, as a certified mechanic can come to your home or office to diagnose your shifting issue.
