My car will not let me shift out of Park (while having the break to the floor) UNLESS i put my key in the shift lock release button? What could be my problem?

faulty shift lock solenoid would be my first guess...there is a little solenoid (elecromagnetic device) in you center console that moves a plastic locking tab out of position when the BRAKE is is the little thing you hear go 'click' when you press the brake while in park. if you have a multimeter or even a test light you should first check the wires going to it for 12V, could be a loose harness

Well I found out what it was. My throttle body had to be adjusted. Since I just added a 70MM Throttle body. I am back and running.

Your transmission cable is sized, broken, loose or defected. I had this problem 4 days ago with my 92 g2 automatic.

Basically i couldn't put it into Park, and it stays in R (eventho the stick position is in P), so when i thought its in P, it actually start to goes backward!!! And i had to use the key to release the lock and leave it at N and pull the handbrake...

Anyhow, just fixed it yesterday, and damn, the shift is sooo smooth now, is like brane new!! I took it to the dealer to fix it because garages i checked said they don't wanna touch anything related to tranny... dealer charged me about 375$ (tax, labor and part included), that is CANADIAN DOLLARS.

The cable is about a thumb size thick, so i think that alone would probably cost like 150$ maybe 150$ labor...

Check that out first, i highly think is your tranny cable.

I am having a similar problem with my 95. I cant take my car out of P without putting a key in the shift lock release. It is also affecting my brake lights. The parking lights work but the brake lights wont light up at all. I put a test light on the wire running to the solenoid and it lights up. one guy told me it could be the neutral safety switch or the brakelight switch. I dont know what to do. Also, I think I have a short or i blew a fuse because now my parking lights dont work at all...only my signals. Any ideas guys?
