Q: Q: Shifter stuck in park

asked by on

My shifter is stuck in park.

The Problem with your car is the shift interlock release latch is broken and is a common problem with these cars. The interlock release is located under the shifter and can be replaced fairly easily with a new metal part. I would recommend having a Technician from YourMechanic come out and install a new interlock release latch.
