Stuck in Park

I just had all new disc brakes put on my 2006 Ridgeline.......now it sticks in park? Do I need to adjust the the brake? How?

Also, triangle warning and ABS warning come on?

Re: Stuck in Park

Maybe the brake guy adjusted the rear brakes to tight. And when you put your foot on the brake pedal to release the transmission lock it won't activate it. Can you get it out of Park with the Emergency release pressed?
Is the Parking brake on?

Re: Stuck in Park

If your brake pedal moves and the lever won't disengage, my guess is that something in the transmission release system became disconnected from the brakes. I don't know if it's just an electronic sensor or if it's mechanical, but to me that's what it sounds like if your brakes were replaced.

I'll betcha OurFarm will know for sure..

I can't see how this would be related to a brake job...however, if pushing on the brake pedal (as we have to do to trip the brake switch) to get the transmission out of park doesn't work, I have to think the brake switch is disconnected or not functioning.

This switch turns on your brake lights when you depress the pedal. It also deactivates the cruise control, if cruise is in use.

If this switch is not working you will not be able to get the transmission out of park.

There is a a little square piece of plastic that can be removed with a small screwdriver. Under this plastic is a switch that you can depress to get the transmission out of park and drive normally (except for the fact that you won't have brake lights or be able to use cruise control).

If I remember right, the plastic tab is located on the steering column, but I may be wrong. Some one will correct me....

The switch is located right above the brake pedal. It is activated by the metal linkage that the pedal is mounted on. You may have to be a bit of a contortionist to get to it.

Re: Stuck in Park

Ourfarm would be me....

There are a few things that could be causing this and most have already been mentioned by oldnorske. Now it is puzzling that the ABS light and triangle is on. But that shouldn't cause the shift lever to stick in park.

Re: Stuck in Park

If your brake light fuse is blown it will cause transmission to not come out of park. Been there done that with our Accord.
