Asked by Feb 12, 2019 at 02:24 AM about the 1997 Toyota Avalon 4 Dr XL Sedan

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 1997 Toyota Avalon will not shift out of
park. I just had new break pads installed
prior to this malfunction. Could this be the
result of an improper break installation?

1 Answer


Might be due to work on the brakes. It's probably the brake-shift solenoid that makes you push the brake peddle to release the shifter. Might just be unplugged.
