My wife's 2002 Highlander will not shift into Park. It will go through every gear except Park. Any ideas on what the problem and fix is? Thank You

Turns out the terminal cover on the battery came loose and fell down in the engine. This caused the shifter linkage to get jambed. $40 fix. dmross

The same problem happened to us. Luckily, we used this forum and figured the problem out without a trip to the dealership.

My 2002 highlander did this yesterday. I pushed it back away from parking lot curb. Then took it the Toyota Dealer. Then came home , Googled up the problem, I found this site and people with the same problem. I called the dealer, they had closed for the day, so first thing today I called at 8 AM..the guy went and looked under the hood, and found this had happened to my Highlander..The dealer fixed it, No Charge....Feel kind of dumb for not looking under the hood myself before taking it in to the dealer.....
