Shifter Interlock Solenoid Replacement Service

What is the Shifter Interlock Solenoid all about?

Solenoids are cylindrical coils of metal wire that carry electric currents. The shifter interlock solenoid ensures you can’t shift from Park to Drive without first applying the brake. The solenoid inside the interlock system is what allows you to move the shifter. When the brake pedal is pressed, the solenoid receives a signal that releases a mechanical lock on the shifter and allows it to be moved. The shifter interlock solenoid also enables the shifter to be moved from Neutral to Reverse and, from Reverse to Park. If the solenoid does not receive the brake pedal signal, the shifter will not be released from its current position. You may not be able to shift out of park, or if you are in drive gear, you may not be able to shift past Neutral back into Reverse or Park.

Keep in mind:

  • If you can’t get out of Park, a dysfunctional shifter interlock solenoid is not the only probable culprit.
  • If a light on your dashboard tells you that the brake lights aren’t working, your shifter interlock may not work either.

How it's done:

  • The vehicle battery is disconnected
  • The defective shifter interlock solenoid is removed
  • The new shifter interlock solenoid is installed
  • The battery is reconnected
  • The vehicle is tested and shifter operation is checked

Our recommendation:

The shifter interlock solenoid does not require servicing. It is meant to last the lifetime of your car. If your shifter will not come out of Park, or is stuck in gear, have one of our expert mechanics diagnose the system and replace the shifter interlock solenoid if required.

What common symptoms indicate you may need to replace the Shifter Interlock Solenoid?

  • Shifter will not move out of Park
  • Key will not come out of the ignition

How important is this service?

Though it does not present a safety concern, your vehicle is unusable in many cases until the shifter interlock solenoid is repaired. Getting your faulty interlock solenoid replaced is essential for normal car operation.

I was beyond happy with the service provided by John and Yourmechanic Repair Services. John was prompt, very accommodating, and quite fast. It took him just about an hour from the moment he got to my apartment to completing the repair. This was my first time using Yourmechanic services and I couldn't have been more pleased. In addition John showed me my old part and clearly explained the issue with the repair and defective part, he also gave me several options to address other items associated with that repair. No sooner than my getting back upstairs to my apartment I texted several family members and friends about YourMechanic services recommending them to all of my closest friends and family. Not to mention, the whole repair was affordable. I will continue to sing the praises of YourMechanic. Thank you once again John. Man, if only going to the dentist was as painless as this repair, I might still have teeth. Lol.

Better than good Ira was here before the scheduled time which was even better or I would have been late for a airport drop off, plus what I thought was the issue turned out to be something else which cost almost 70$ CHEAPER, thank you for your honesty
