Locate all the linkage points under the car and observe how they are binding and where they are binding. Lubricate the rubber bushings with Silicon spray ONLY.

The main problem with any vehicle that will not shift out of gear deals with the transmission. This is a problem where the transmission may need to be replaced to fix it.

Check the linkage from the gear selector (shifter) to the transmission. It may have come loose. If it's intact, check your transmission fluid level. If this doesn't fix the problem, then you'll have to have it towed to the shop.

When I asked how much it would cost to replace the gear shift light on a Toyota Echo, I was quoted about $100 from the dealership! (Most of the cost is labor).

temp. fix. I had to use a pen to press the button inside of the gear box (there is a small hole under D) in order to shift out of park.

sometime when you step on the brake to remove it out of park the relese gets stuck try stepping on brake and shaking gear shift handle We had a similar problem, and the answer that it is the Stop Light Switch on the brake pedal itself is Correct! Did cost $6 to fix, fixed the problem immediately and only 2 bolts to replace. Very easy. Very inexpensive!

If the situation was reversed, would you be happy fixing up a problem they left for the night shift? You should try to fix the problem.

I don't know how to fix it perse, but we ran into the problem in my roommate's 98 SL2 where it was sticking and locking the key in the ignition. The problem was the actual mechanism where the shift lock connects to the gear shift was stuck or malaligned or something, if you pull out the cupholder and wiggle on it it seems to unstick it. I'm thinking a good cleaning should hopefully fix it permanently. I'm not even sure where to buy a replacement interlock.

There are multiple things that could cause this problem, but if everything else seems to work fine, a good place to check would be the transmission and the shifter. Gears in the transmission could be blown and may not catch when you try to shift.

When you press the brake, a switch on the back of the pedal activates a solenoid in the shift console that allows you to move the shift lever out of park. If the switch or solenoid fails, you won't be able to shift out of park. There is a bypass for this. You can stick a screwdriver in the side of the console to manually move the solenoid so that you can shift it. You will have to do this every time you shift out of park until you fix the problem. The owners manual covers it in more detail.

The cost to fix a gear shift solenoid will depend on whether or not the work can be done without lowering the transmission. On most vehicles, this requires the transmission to be unbolted from the motor. This can cost between $500 and $1,000 because of the man hours needed for this type of job.

Is it the kind that has the button on top? Doesn't it screw on?
