Why won't shifter come out of Park
Easy fix, I have the or had the same problem with my 97 GMC c1500. Just tilt the wheel up and look on the bottom plastic cover you should see a cut out on the lower right hand side (Gas's pedel side) take a flat head driver and pop off the black plastic arm on the shift leaver. There are two plastic arms on the shift Handel the white one is your shift cable and the black one is your shift lock sellaniod witch is what is malfunctioning. Hope this helps
My problem is similar, and if I bounce the ignition switch a few times into the steering column, most times I am then able to move the shifter out of park. I will try looking at the plastic arms and see if one is worn / cracked. Thanks.
No answer, but wanted to thank you, my son has limited funds this saved him some money, it did the trick!
