2004 Toyota Camry Q&A
2004 Toyota Camry Question: Shifting lever stuck in park
my shifter got stuck in park,I read the book and read to take the little cover off by the shifter and push the botton to release the shifter. it worked fine doing this,but my question is why does it do it? Also is there anything I can do so that it doesn't do it again? Is there something that needs to be lubricated or adjusted? Or do I just keep using this little black button when it happens. Must be Toyota knew there was a problem or they wouldn't of put that little button in there and told you how to use it,am I right in my way of thinking? thanks for all your help in the past,look forward to your response to this one. - joanie3
Check your brake lights! NO , Toyota (and all others , have certain features designed in) decided that if it doesn't see the brake pedal depressed , when attempting to take the car out of park(like when parents leave little kids in the front seat of a running car-that's kinda what got this feature started I believe) it won't let it out of park. IT is a SAFETY feature-not a problem. The problem occurs when a switch , wiring , or PCM goes bad. AGAIN , check your brake lights. Switch can be tested , also fuse (if that's the case , you should have some other inoperative items) and wiring from switch to PCM AND switch to brake lights....ALL can be tested and verified , BEFORE parts are bought. Have fun! ..Drive safely. - ziptie12
