yes it does. Yours is under warranty so before you do something crazy have it towed to the dealer! And BTW it isn't a bumper to bumper lifetime warranty it just covers the drive train! :beer:Shifter will not move at all. Nothing is moving. I tried with key in all positions. I rocked the jeep front-to-back in case the tranny was stuck. Nothing working.
I think there maybe a sensor somewhere that is not working. In one of my older trucks, there was a sensor on the break pedal, that must be tripped in order for the vehicle to shift out of park. Does the JK have something like this?
its all because Cobra64 called your jeep a car. :thefinger:Try turning the key to the accessory position without the engine on and try to shift to neutral - then start the car and see if that loosens things up -- used to happen to my old ass taurus occasionally.
^^^ well theres your problem!
Yes, mine is Lifetime Bumper to Bumper, not just drivetrain. I worked out that deal when I bought it.! And BTW it isn't a bumper to bumper lifetime warranty it just covers the drive train! :beer:
this ^^^^ its also in your OWNERS manual believe it or not :laughing: Its not the neutral safety switch though its shift lock override.there a little tab near the shift selector that pops out? if there is, pop that out and push a screwdriver or key in there. its a bypass type thingy.
see... im not just another pretty face! :grinpimp:this ^^^^ its also in your OWNERS manual believe it or not :laughing: Its not the neutral safety switch though its shift lock override.
OP you are remembering to put your foot on the brake right? :laughing:
Shift Lock Manual Override
Your vehicle may be equipped with a shift lock manual
override. The manual override may be used in the event
that the shift lever should fail to move from PARK with
the key in the ON position and the brake pedal depressed.
To operate the shift lock manual override, perform
the following steps:
1. Firmly set the parking brake.
2. Using a flat blade screwdriver, carefully remove the
shift lock manual override cover which is located on the
PRNDL bezel, above the PARK position.
3. Depress and maintain firm pressure on the brake
4. Using the screwdriver, reach into the manual override
opening. Press and hold the shift lock lever down
5. Depress the shifter release button and shift into NEUTRAL.
6. The vehicle may then be started in NEUTRAL.
Have your vehicle inspected by your local authorized
dealer, if the shift lock manual override has been used
Fixed......That fixed it. Super easy too. I popped out the little tab next to the shifter, pressed the button under it, and all is working again.but is there a little tab near the shift selector that pops out? if there is, pop that out and push a screwdriver or key in there. its a bypass type thingy[/SIZE][/SIZE].
I am also able to get the it to shift out of park using the info in the post, but it keeps locking up just wondering if a problem was found before I start taring apart the counsel.Thanks again to the group. I can at least 'drive it to the shop instead of having it towed, if I want them to check out what caused the problem in the first place.
