Gear shift sticks in park..

1 Answer

195

most modern cars have a safty feature that prevents them from being taken out of park with out the foot brake being applied. my best guess would be there is something wrong with this system that stops it from recognising it has been applied. i would have it looked at by a profesional as it can be very tricky to fix if you not familiar with these sorts of things.
