Customer Question
Maserati GTS driven yesterday...

Maserati GTS driven yesterday, today get in and turn key and won't turnover but all seems ok. Gear Shifter locked and on't go into neutral. I released key using button behind ignition but can't figure how to release gear shift. I tried what manual says which is poke down through hole behind shifter but can't find the magic button, solenoid or whatever.

Mechanic's Assistant: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?

2013. You mean the park brake ?

Mechanic's Assistant: What is the model of your '13 Maserati?

GT Sport

Mechanic's Assistant: Are you fixing your GT yourself? What have you tried so far?

I put that in the first response

Can you have a helper check and see if there is any brake lights and let me know?

Customer reply replied 10 months ago
There are brake lights. I just need to know how to release the gear shift lever. The manual has a vague reference to using a "tool" to push on the gearshift locking mechanism while slightly moving the lever toward N. Your not going to be able to help me unless you have manually released the gear shift lever on a Maserati GT S before. Have you ?
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I will be glad to have you call me if you know Maserati's. Do you ?
Ford Mechanic: Mike V., Auto Service Technician replied 10 months ago

No I haven't, for some reason this came up in the ford category. I will open it up for the other experts.

Please stand by, if anyone has any info they will help you.

This is very frustrating because I started on a screen that said Maserati questions then when I paid my $5 it changed to Ford.

Because of your expertise, you armed me with enough ammunition to win the battle with the dealer. They are installing a fuel filter and fuel pump at no charge to me.

I do know, after going though this with JustAnswer, that I can somewhat trust my mechanic but I will always contact you prior to going there.
