Customer Question

My 2000 Camry is stuck in park and will not shift to any other gear...
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?

JA: Are you hoping to fix this yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: Researching it on-line.
JA: Anything else you think the mechanic should know?
Customer: nope. Thats all I know. It work when I drive it home and now it does not.

Open the fuse cover on the left lower dash, there is a plastic cover or a coin storage box, the fuses are inside there, the fuses are marked on the inside of the cover, replace the fuse marked 'STOP' and 'Gauge' let me know if that fixed it.

Nope. Fuses are continuing to blow one after another.

Does the fuse blow as soon as you put it in or does it blow only when stepping on the brake?

Customer: replied 10 months ago.
When put in. Brake switch is new.
Expert:  Ted Ritter replied 10 months ago.

Ok, we need to see if the short is in front or the back, disconnect the brake switch and see if the fuse still blows.
