After my friend drive for 10 minutes back to 12/25/18, I experienced the gear can not shift smoothly! It takes me several times to make shift down from P to R gear

yesterday i was trying to do the same  & at first time it work although not to smooth to shift down but after I get down to move something block my car and I was trying to shift again , it won’t shift at all ! 

I was looking from YouTube , trying to solve the problem but it won’t work after I did !

I need your help please !!


No, I do not know any brake light switch  connected with gear shifting, so I do not touch it !

Brake light switch controls the shifter release as well. Replace it and let us know. The part is about 20 dollars or so and easy to replace. 

there is a small hole to stick a pen or any similar item into it and it will over ride the brake switch .it is at the end of the shifter at the bottom jut below the letter D for drive. it is covered by a small flap to keep out debris you only need to gently need to press the pen in the hole and then attempt to shift it while holding pressure on the switch at the other end of the pen.if this corrects the problem it is the brake switch. its not difficult but if you have no mechanical ability at all it could give you a small bit of aggravation. just read the installation instructions thoroughly .
