THE CAR IS STUCK IN PARK BUT IT STARTS JUST FINE.

The little button on the side of the selector will not press in to get it out of Park. Is there a way to check the brake interlock switch? If that is even a consideration. Thank you

Adjustement Procedures and Diagrams to show where and how to measure adjustemnts. Finally, the wiring diagram for the system. There is also an general overview of the system operation in the compnent tests.

You called it right thank you. What it was, the fuse for the brake lights was blown and that made it stuck in park. Would have never thought of that till after much head scratching. Awesome site!
