I have a 2000 Leganza and it would not shift out of park/gear recently. I discovered it was a bad brake switch with signals the brake lights to activate and the shifter to release. The switch is a small plug-type part and I found a used one on line for about 30 bucks. labor to put it in was about 50. !

I had same problem years ago - there was a recall on the brake light switch - you may be able to get it replaced for free?

In case you get stuck though and need to get it home - stick a screw driver into the slot next to your shifter to get it into gear. Get the switch fixed though - your brake lights may not be coming on.

To fix a gear shift light, the first thing that needs to be done is checking the fuse box to make sure that all fuses are intact. The reason you would fix a gear shift light is, so you know what gear you are in. Driving in the wrong gear can cause transmission problems.
