1993 Corolla automatic transmission.

I have a 1993 corolla auto trans and when I first try to take it out of park it will not shift. I noticed that when I push the brake pedal to the floor it finally shifts. I recently replaced the brake switch, could the adjustment be a problem?

    Hello! Yes, that adjustment could cause problems with the shift release. Every vehicle with a center console shifter and an automatic transmission has some type of lock-unlock system to prevent the shifter being moved until the brake is applied. If all worked well before the switch was replaced and the switch is the factory replacement for the one taken out, then make sure the brake lights work, when the brake lights receive power, so should the release solenoid for the shifter. It only remains engaged as long as the brake is being depressed and the brake lights are receiving power. Good luck!
