why does transmission get stuck in park
got stuck in park for several minutes but I let it sit while i called my husband. when I got back to the car i tried again and everything was fine.
It could be the shifter release solenoid. Have someone check if your brake lights go on when you press the pedal. If they don't check the brake light switch at the top of the brake pedal. If the brake lights are OK, then the solenoid is defective.
Yes it could be the shifter release solenoid or the brake light switch, either way the shifter is stuck in Park. To get my car out of Park I turned to key to the start position, or actually started the car. Then turn the key back one position. Without pressing the brake pedal you can shift out of park. You then can shift to neutral, start the car and get moving, at least you can move the vehicle or get it to a repair shop to replace the brake light switch and the shifter release solenoid if needed.
