1997 Mazda 626. 4 cylinder . Stuck in park.   Got it up the gill by finally figuring out the
switch lock.      Any easy fix. Or testing can be done by me.   Before 100 hr for a
mechanic.   Brake lights come on so not a brake light switch.   Darn

Can you hear a small motor working under the shifter when you press the brake pedal? There is a motor/switch that releases a lock lever underneath. I had a small plastic pin break on the arm that controls this lock. When you turn turn your shift lock with a key, you are manually releasing the lock. I drilled out the plastic where the pin was, and pressed in a metal pin. Fixed!

I have a 1997 Mazda 626 car and the overdrive button seems to be coming on and sticking causing the car to not want get speed. What could be my problem?
