I was trying to install a rear camera in my Lexus IS300, 2004.
I used a test light to find the hot wire in the tail light, but I touched a couple contact points.
I checked the fuses. They were fine. The Internet says itís probably a bad brake switch. I replaced it.
Car still wonít go into gear, and the dash lights: brake, abs, and trac on are still on.
Iím out of options. Any ideas? I can put it into gear by using the override button by the gear shift, but obviously that is not going to cut it for the long term.
There are four fuses responsible for shift lock. Make sure these are good first.
If everything else works on the car then it's probably not the fuses because they feed other systems. It's possible the shift lock solenoid went bad and won't disengage the shift lock. I would grab a multimeter and check for power(+12v) at the solenoid when you're in park and hit the brake pedal. There is also a switch under the brake pedal that needs to close to tell the shift lock ECU that the brakes are depressed.
