    My Trailblazer shifter started getting stuck in park around the 90K mile mark. Dealer diagnosed the problem as the neutral safety switch (after replacing the solenoid & eventually the entire shifter). Problem occurred again several times within 5K miles and 2 more NSS were tried. Eventually the dealer mechanic cleaned up a ground near the NSS and problem went away until now. Vehicle is now at 116K miles.

    Got stuck in Dallas on a Sunday. Got gas, put car into drive and attempted to drive forward but went in reverse instead. Fortunately I found a Firestone that was open and they sent a flatbed to get me. Seems as though the Gear shift cable went out. That was costly at over $1000 to get fixed and an overnight stay plus a days vacation.

    Started car thought it was battery but it dead in reverse then it was stuck not able to release to netural or park. The warning lights lights never coame on or have there been any problems with car. Still trying to see if it's the Netural safety switch aor the gear shift cable.

    It has been awhile since this problem happened but I figured out it happens when the the dash lights and meters loose power or something. When that happens, the power window on the driver side will not work as well as the power door lock for the drivers side. When the meters and the indicaters go out on me and it is sporadic, I make sure I don't use the window so that it doesn't get stuck in the down position. I figure it is a short or something. THe car is getting old so I haven't bothered to try to get it fixed. When it got stuck in park and the shifter said it was in drive, I couldn't get the key out. THey had to come tow it and the mechanic didn't know what was wrong with it. It started working as sporadically as it happens.

    The transmission will not shift. The stick will move but the display stays in park.
