my car is hyndai accent 2005 2 door my shift gear is stuck on park what can i do to work again
Hyundai Mechanic: Mike V., Hyundai Technician replied 6 years ago
WEll, it is hard to say what is wrong without a little testing.
This is why I am asking about the brake lights. It is activated by the brake light switch. If the switch is working the lights will come on. If not, then a simple fuse may resolve the issue for you. I do need the info I asked for to help you determine what the problem is.
Please let me know if the brake lights are working or not.
Thank you.

my blake lights is working
Hyundai Mechanic: Mike V., Hyundai Technician replied 6 years ago
Ok, we have a couple of fuses to check that affect the shifter,and not the brake light.
These fuses are located inside the car.
Fuse #1 and fuse #14.
Fuse #14 is the fuse that provides power to the a/t shift and key lock control module.
Fuse #1 also provides a source of power for the module.
Check these fuses and let me know.
If your fuse box is not numbered, let me know and I will try to provide their location on the fuse box.
Thanks

Hyundai Mechanic: Mike V., Hyundai Technician replied 6 years ago
Well, it has to be diagnosed. I can't just say to you the park neutral position switch needs to be replaced without checking all the parts and pieces. There are several different components to the shifter that need to be looked at.
Here is what I suggest will be the best method for you.
On the cover of the shifter there is a small plastic piece that can be removed. Remove this piece, then take a small screwdriver or bic pen cap and push down. At the same time pull the shift lever and it should come out of park.
You can drive the car this way and have it diagnosed and repaired. Since you are uncertain how to check the fuses, then I suspect giving you the tech info won't really be doing you any favors. This should however allow you to get the car out of park so you can continue to drive it until you can have it looked at.
Here is a diagram and the location of the shift overide is highlighted.

i did what did you taught me and work what do you think is the problem now i took to the Hyundai they told me they could not do anything because is working now normal the way supposed to be. just in case if the shift stuck to call them..Any another advice also my box is number 3 i cannot find fuse 1 and 14 my fuse goes by 20 30...........
Hyundai Mechanic: Mike V., Hyundai Technician replied 6 years ago
You are looking at the fuse amp ratings. The fuse #s should be on the cover.
I suspect what may have happened is things just got out of sync. Once you got it out of park and back in, things were probably back into sync and that is why it is now working normally.
This happens sometimes and at least now you know how to get it out of park! :)
