Yukon won't come out of park

Asked by Jun 29, 2012 at 01:34 PM about the 1997 GMC Yukon

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have a 1997 GMC Yukon 4WD.  I have been having a hard time getting it to shift out of park.  Sometimes I can turn the motor off, turn the key to on without turning it over and shift into neutral and then shift to other gears.  What is causing this?

there is a switch that i cant remember the name of that when you pull back on the lever to move it out of park allows you to change gears, sounds like it's failing. If your truck will start in neutral i would suggest having a good parking brake and useing neutral and not park.
