While up on the Dells Run, it happen to me two times. I was driving and pulled in somewhere to pak and I couldn't depress the button on the shifter handle to push it into park. . The shifter would move from drive the neutral and from neutral to drive but there is no shift detent for those gears. The button would not go in to get it into any other gear. I kept moving the shifter back and forth and finally the button did depress. I tape the button in the depress position for the rest of the trip and didn't have any problems. When I got home, I took the shifter surround off but I couldn't see any problem-everything was working as it should. Dose anybody have any ideas what could have caused the problem?

Might be a long shot, but make sure the shifter handle is fully seated all the way down where it belongs on the shaft.

Check to see if you have brake lights. Could be the switch on the brake pedal. Just a thought
Good Luck

I will check that. I didn't know there was a brake switch to release a shift lock out solenoid. I didn't know there was a shift lock out solenoid

No lockout solenoid. The button release is purely mechanical on the shifter mechanism.
No brake switch interface either.

So much erroneous 'helpful' info on here sometimes......

There isn't a brake shift interlock solenoid on a fiero. There is a cable that goes between the shifter and ignition switch to keep the shifter from being moved out of park when the key is in the "off" position.



It could be out of adjustment.
