2005 Volvo S60 Q&A
2005 Volvo S60 Question: Gear Shift stuck in Park
I have read a bit on this issue on other sites and would like additional information. I understand that this could be result of a spilled cup of coffee..but how do I remove the covering on the gear shift to clean out any residual moisture that might be present? I really don't want to take it to the dealership if I can do it myself. Thanks! - NancyinRaleigh
If the problem is from spilled coffee, then any damage done will unlikely be fixed by wiping up any residual fluid. You will need some ability to diagnose what the problem is, first by checking for fault codes, then by diagnosing the electronic circuit. You should have a repair manual (I suggest going to AllDataDIY.com) a voltmeter and the basic hand tools needed for the job. This is not really an entry level repair for the inexperienced person, you may want to find a good independent Volvo shop, or take it to the dealer. Good Luck! - Bret Bodas
My 2008 Volvo S60 2.0 T is stuck in park position. I can start the engine. The brake lights lit when press the brake pedal. The gear shifter is not stuck ( I suppose cause I can press on it). I can...
IN the mornings when I crank the car the gear shift will not release from park, even when pressing on brake.
