I searched around a bit and found that you may have blown a fuse. Do your brake lights and horn work?

If your brake lights don't work, it could be a fuse or the brake lamp switch.

If they work it could be the neutral safety switch.

Either way, to get it into gear, remove this little cover.


Use a small flathead screwdriver, nail file or pocket knife to remove this tab. (This is the shift interlock tab)

Then, take a flathead screwdriver or your key, push it down into the tab, then put it into neutral, start engine (if using your key) otherwise, start it in park. It really doesn't matter. You can then switch to drive or reverse. It has to be in nuetral to start if you are using your key as the tool to push shift interlock button.

Here's a video explaining the procedure.

I hope this helps!
