something inside goes over center easy fix is to stop the button from coming out of the handle to far get a rubber o ring just larger then the button then slip it in to the handle so it acts like a circlip and prevents the button from releasing to far lubricate the button and o ring with some lubriplate so it moves freely then make sure the shifter works correctly going from drive to neutral without pushing the button it should not go past neutral in to reverse if it does try a diffrent size o ring if you got the right size o ring it should take about 1 min to fix plus the time to get the button in the first time T Bay INVENT

My 95 Z28 shifter gets stuck in park when cold is there a switch in the brake peddel?

On my 95 Z28 (with Automatic Transmission), there is a solenoid which releases the shifter button when the brake is pressed so the car can only start with the transmission in park. When the solenoid starts to go bad, it tends to not release in colder weather. I was able to get around this problem by using by hand to lifting up on the solenoid (or by rotating it) while pressing on the brake (perhaps the solenoid shaft binds from ware in the old orientation). I used a piece of wire to lift up on the solenoid by tying it to a nearby bracket, which fixed the problem for now.

Why is tempo shifter stuck in park?

There is a plastic rod inside of the shifter arm, it unlocks the shifter from the park position when the button on the shifter handle is pressed. So, press in on the shifter button and pull the shift handle straight UP (you might have to pull hard). You should be able to remove the broken pieces of the plastic rod with some wire. You might have to go to a junk yard for a replacement.

I have a Lexus LS400 and it gets stuck in park?

This is a fairly common problem with many modern cars. It usually happens from a sticky drink or other liquid being spilled over the shifter area (cafe mocha, etc.). There is a solenoid in the shifter assembly that unlocks the park button when you step on the brake pedal, and it gets gummed up from whatever was spilled down there. Occasionally, when you take it apart and get to the solenoid, you can spray penetrating fluid into it, and free it up. Most of the time, though, the solenoid will need to be replaced with a new one from the dealer, or a used one from a salvage yard.

1995 Monte Carlo will not go in gear from park. cann't get the button to go in?

The shifter button is a rod with an angle on it and returned by a spring. Normally when this happens the rod inside the shifter handle has worn out or broken. If it has a round knob w/ button in center, the shaft is froze or rusted. Either case the knob has to be removed. I think there is a solonoid in thr shifter base , when the brake pedal pushes it unlocks the shifter. Try good luck, something connects to the shifter Cavaliers have cables. You must have power , battery power!!!
