SOURCE: INSTALLED TRANS 700R4 RAN GOOD

well, to me 2 things may happened, your manual valve in the valve body is detached or... your boost valve pop out, this is part of your pump, ider way remove your trans pan and check for either one in it, or a clip tnat holds manual valve, if your boost valve come apart you need some one that knows how to put it togheter or a manual for specific trans.
good luck

SOURCE: shifter on 95 buick riviera stuck in park

There is a "park lock cable" located in the steering column that releases the shifter after the ignition switch is turned to the on position. There is also a BTSI (brake trans shift interlock) solenoid that also releases the shifter when you press on the brake pedal. One of them is not functioning, are you able to turn the steering wheel after the car is started?

When that happens again, try moving shifter harder into park, or in to neutral and also try stepping harder on brake pedal & see if it makes any difference.

1992 toyota camry v6 auto. can't move shifter. car starts and ste


Car must be on and brake pedal depressed to shift. If you have no brake lights then the car doesn't know the pedal is depressed and will not shift out of park. This car has an interlock overide on the shifter console, push it and it will come out of Park. You will need a brake light switch tho.

C320 starting problem


Hello,

I had the same problem with mine. Disconnect the power seat moduale underneath the seats. Recharge the battery and shouldn't happen again. Providing the battery hasn't worn down past the charging point. Worst case you will have to get a new battery. If you google C320 battery drains you will see hundreds of other peoples posts.

Good Luck
