Why doesn't your 1996 Subaru Legacy automatic-transmission shift out of Park and have already tried depressing brake pedal and releasing the shift lock under shift plate?

Why does my dodge Dakota not shift into gear It will not come out of park And the brake lights arent working either. Could there be a connection?

There is what is called a brake sensor. This sensor has to engage to sent a signal to the transmission to release the pawl so that you can shift it. Replace the brake pedal sensor. It is usually on the top of the pedal arm upward under the dash. This will also cause the brake lights not to work. Good luck.

What can be the problem a 1996 contour brakes do not work but rear window brake works and you hear a clicking in the drive console when car in park and brake pedal is depressed?

Can't say that I fully understand the question. Rear window brake? Brakes don't work? Please explain. Does brake pedal go to the floor? No brake fluid in Master cylinder? due to leak. Brake pedal has normal travel but no stopping? Worn brake linings. Clicking in console could be normal, sounds like shift interlock is working properly. Allowing you to shift from "park" into other shift positions. Have to step on brake pedal to allow shift.

The shift mechanism is only allowed to move from park if and when the brake pedal is pressed. Possible causes are, faulty brake pedal switch, shift interlock solenoid, wiring, or broken shift button. Possible shift linkage or transmission problem. Find the procedure for "bypassing or overriding the shift interlock" for further diagnosis.
