I have a 2012 Sequoia platinum, with flex fuel, 5.7L powerplant, and 4WD. The gear shifter gets stuck (locked) in park at times. It is happening more frequently and I have tried reapplying the brake and restarting, but it is still happening. After about the 5th try, it will finally work. Any suggestions?

Please help.

Thanks.

I vaguely remember when my battery died on a different vehicle I owned, I couldn't shift out of park, either. Under a small tab near the shift lever, there is a button you can push to manually unlock the shift lever, but I didn't have to do it once my battery got charged back up again.

If you want to get to that button, you'll have to pry the cover up using a small screw driver or something.
