Follow these instructions to get your Hyundai out of Park. These instructions apply to Hyundai Elantra, Sonata, Entourage, Accent, Veloster, Excel, i30, Azera, Sedona etc.
If your Hyundai is stuck in Park (P) it can due to several factors. Here is a list of the most common issues that can cause Hyundai cars to be stuck in park.
If the shift lever of a Hyundai Sonata, Elantra, Sonata, Azera, Santa Fe, Elantra or Entourage won't shift into or out of Park check to make sure that the brake light switch is working properly. This is one of the most common problems that will make a Hyundai vehicle get stuck in Park.
This can be due to a defective ignition interlock mechanism or cable.
Since the brake light switches are so inexpensive it may be a good idea to replace it with a new one, if you are having problems with your Hyundai getting stuck in Park. You can also test the operation of the brake light switch using a multimer or a diagnostic scanner.
