You need to have the abs checked for codes. Then you can diagnose cause.
Check the fuses- Shift interlock is the same circuit as brake lights. As a temporary measure - try to turn the key to 1st (unlock) position shift to neutral to start vehicle and then shift to Drive.
I believe most GM cars the daytime running lights can be turned off by applying the parking brake.
Check fuses, If brake lights do not work, transmission will not shift out of park. Brake light circuit is common to shift interlock. That's why you must step on brake to release interlock prior to shifting out of "Park" If stop lights are not working interlock will not release.
Readjust the brake light switch on the pedal.
Check the circuitry to the backup lights. The same fused circuit is probably used for both brake lights and backup lights. As you go past Reverse, the backup light probably is turned on briefly, causing the fuse to blow. It's just a thought, but I'd think it worth checking.
your park brake
Im not sure i have the same issue... let me know if you get an answer email me at firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks and good luck ill let you know if i find out anything
Leaving the parking brake on while you drive
If you have a manual gearbox you should use neutral AND foot brake at traffic lights. If you have automatic you can leave it in Drive with your foot firmly on the foot brake. (Some instructors would tell you to move it to neutral and keep your foot on the foot brake.)
probably the heat on the drive ways or some cord in the car is just messed up.
Check to see if the stop lights are working - shift interlock and brake lights are on the same circuit Check fuses
warped break disk
Check and see if you have brake lights - If there are no brake lights then your shifter release solenoid will not release the shifter, it will be stuck in park. If this has happened then please check the wiring on the brake light switch which is located on the brake pedal. You will probably find a broken wire.
It probably indicates that both your other brake lights are burned out and need replacing. BTW: It is illegal in most (if not all) jurisdictions to drive this way.
Your car is faulty. DO NOT drive it - take it to a qualified mechanic to be fixed.
Which lights are they is it the check engine abs and brake lights? If so its the transmission ouput speed sensor that needs to be replaced. Inexpensive unless you continue to drive it and blow the transmission. good luck
Because your brake system is not working properly. You need to have your brake system checked out and repaired before you have to make an emergency stop and then they fail to brake as they should. ALWAYS DRIVE SAFELY
ABS and brake lights on dash will be on. Speedometer and cruise will be inoperative.ABS and brake lights on dash will be on. Speedometer and cruise will be inoperative.
Don't drive and take it straight to a garage 'cause it will empty your brake cylinder.
check your cars battery lead terminals i had a similar problem in an olds eighty eight, i would hit the brake to be able to shift it into drive and when it wen tinto drive the lights would dim noticabley if it was night and the engine would die. the trouble turned out to be that the battery terminal leads were heavily corroded and at idle when shifting from park into drive the brake lights being on the abs pump bein on and such caused a large enough voltage drop that the ignition would not have enough to fire the engine and the engine would die.
Check to see if your brake lights work. If not, there is a switch attached to your brake petal Assembly that probably came loose. plug it back in and it should work....
It takes a 7mm hex.
