Beside this, what causes the gear shift to be stuck in park?

An open circuit in the shift interlock electrical system can cause the shifter to become stuck in Park if the open circuit interrupts communications between the brake light switch or the ignition switch and the interlock solenoid. If power is present, the shifter interlock solenoid is bad.

Additionally, where is the shift lock release button? The shift lock release feature allows the driver to switch the available automatic transmission options. The shift lock button is usually a button found on top or side of the gear selector lever. With it, the driver can lock the gear to the desired option.

People also ask, what does it mean when your car won't come out of park?

One such problem is a shifter that will not come out of the park position. The most common cause is the brake/shift interlock, discussed in the next section. Another cause is too much force applied by the park gear. Parking on an incline may cause our shifter to stick in the park position.
