Hello, my name is Bobby. Thank you for the question. Can you tell me if the shift indicator is showing that the vehicle is in drive and reverse when the shifter is moved? Is the check engine light coming on?

the car shifter is going into gear.the car tries to move but seem like the wheels are locked.

act as though you are holding the breaks.
Lexus Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Master Technician replied 1 year ago

Thank you. It is possible that this is a transmission issue as I have seen the internal bands break and cause this. Most of the time though this is a braking issue. If the parking brake is not releasing or if there is contamination in the braking system then this will occur. You need to get the vehicle in the air and check to see if the wheel move freely by hand. If not then there is a brake issue. Did you plan on fixing this yourself?

I tried to move it by pushing , it would not move..when it was locked

It sounds like the parking brake assembly was locked. Do you use it when you park the vehicle?

I do use the parking brake sometimes,but this time the brakes were not on
Lexus Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Master Technician replied 1 year ago

It will be hard to verify what is causing this without it ccurring while you are checking it. You need to jack the vehicle up and see which wheels are binding up. From what you are explaining though it sounds like the parking brake was engaged.

there is no ck. engine light on. I am afraid to drive it to the dealer as it"s about 90 miles away. might lock up while driving
Lexus Mechanic: FIXITMAN, Master Technician replied 1 year ago

It does not sound to me like an issue that will occur while you are driving. I have never had that happen on this model. This appears to be something that will occur as the vehicle sits.
