I have a 2005 Aztec, the shifter has a "u" shaped pin located on the front towards the dash if you use a small screw driver you can loosen the pin enough, then use a small pair of plyer to put it out. The shifter will then pull up. Hint. With your foot on the brake...put shifter in low gear to create more space to access this pin
you dont have to but it makes it a lot easier.
The switch is located inside of the frame, underneath the panel where the shift lever comes up. Remove the knob on the shift lever and remove 2 screws, and remove the plate. The switch is mounted below the Deck Lowering Lever.
my Trans was stuck in park and I could turn and remove key snd turn steering wheel. There is a hole under the ignition switch that may have a plug in it. Stick something through and you should feel it push a tentioned lever up. with your other hand see if you can now push in the shifter button and move it. I did this while my '04 was running and it allowed me to shift.
Depending on the model they are usually located on the transmission. Just below the shift linkage and cable. Follow the shift cable to the transmission and you will find it. you will have to remove the shift cable and lever , then unbolt the switch and work it up off the shaft.
Please be aware that for 1979 - 1981 Pontiac Firebird/Trans Am models no unique service manuals were created. Instead, model year-specific supplement manuals were printed, which detailed new data specific to their respective model years. In other words, because the shift knob assemblies from 1979 - 1981 models were no different from the 1978 model year, the 1979 supplement manual refers the user to the 1978 service manual. This is why the "7B-21_pic" service manual image says it's from the "1978 PONTIAC SERVICE MANUAL". automatic transmission SHIFT CONTROL LEVER - R & R (Fig. 7B-23) 1. Release shift control lever by inserting a thin rule or a piece of .015" - .020" shim stock into socket along side base of shift control lever on driver's side. 2.

Install shift control lever by inserting into shift socket. Bayonet retainer will lock control lever automatically into proper position. manual transmission SHIFT CONTROL ASSEMBLY - REPAIR (Fig. 7B-21) 1. Remove shift lever shaft retainer and shaft from control lever housing. Then, remove shift control lever assembly from control lever housing. 2. Note position of spacers in relation to shift levers and remove spacers and shift levers from control lever housing. 3. Remove spring bracket and spring from shift control lever assembly. 4. Remove retainer and control lever pivot pin from shift control lever assembly and separate control lever bracket from shift control lever. 5. Clean and inspect all components. Replace all worn, cracked or broken parts as necessary. NOTE: If necessary to remove reverse lever adjusting screw, grind or chisel off the weld and remove screw from control lever bracket. 6. If adjusting screw were removed, position shift control lever bracket and install pivot pin and retainer. Install reverse lever adjusting screw but do not weld at this time. NOTE: Lubricate all levers and spacers with water repellant-type of lubricant such as lubriplate or equivalent. 7. Install shift levers and spacers in control lever housing. 8. Install spring bracket and spring in control lever bracket and shift control lever assembly into control lever housing, making sure lever engages shift levers. 9. Install shift lever shaft and retainer. 10. If removed, adjust reverse lever adjusting screw as follows: a. Position shift control lever in 1st-2nd shift lever and touching interlock plate spacer between 1st-2nd and reverse shift levers. b.

700r4 gear shift lever want lock in place
You can remove the linkage from the shifter to the transmission and manually shift transmission.
If you have an auto trans, check to make sure the car is in park. If the shift lever is even slightly misaligned, (even though the indicator says PARK) your key won't come out.
You sound like you have the same problem I had. The shift lever has a linkage that overtime can stretch. When you put the car in park, wiggle the shift lever until you hear it click. Then you can remove your key.
Check to see if the stop lights are working- shift interlock and stop lights are a common circuit. If not working check the fuse and operation of the stoplight switch. Try turning key to 1st position (unlock) without starting vehicle, shift to neutral to start vehicle and then shift to "Drive".

I have had the same problem with my 2002 Buell Blast, where when you shift to first, or down shift at all, the shift lever comes loose and just hangs. What I did to fix this, is loosen the hex-nut and bolt that go through the shift lever, and remove the shift lever itself. What is probably happening is oil is seeping in between the shift lever openining and the primary. Clean the openinig on the shift lever, and the spool it attaches to. If the hex-bolt is in poor condition, pick up a new one, or if it's in alright condition (not stripped) clean it. Simply set the shift lever where you want it, and retighten the hex-bolt. Tighten it a fair bit, using a lever to get extra leverage on it. Buells are notorious for leaking oil, so start with that. Worked for me...
i wont to change my shifter but cant take off old one
Look at the base of the shift knob towards the dash and you will see a push in clip that you pull out and the knob will come off.
Where is the shift solenoid located on a 2004 pontiac grand prix
The shift level is locked by the shift solenoid. When you step on the brake, the brake switch sends power to the shift solenoid and it moves a lever to unlock the shifter. If either the switch or solenoid is bad, you can't shift out of park.
On the 2000 the knob is on a spline on the shift lever. You'll either have to cut it off, or if you want to reuse it take out the lever by unscrewing the nut under the shaft, place the shaft in a vise and pound off the knob with a soft hammer.
you need to get a special tool if you just want to pull the shift lever by itself.
