    Does any one has experienced this problem?
    A series of unfortunate events:
    First AC did not worked, then once parked at home and several minutes after the truck does not shift from Parking, It does start and appears that everything works except for the A/C and the AT Shifting.

    FOUND SOLUTION!, There is a 10A Fuse under the dash that has control apparently of both: AC Control push button and the Shift Knob, Why I do not really know... Solution was on a thread on TTORA... by TACODOC

    http://www.ttora.com/forum/showthread.php?t=92857&highlight=shifting

    The IG1 Fuse was blown (10 amp fuse located inside fuse box under dash).

    Replaced fuse, problem solved!

    I'd be curious as to what blew the fuse. You should probable carry a spare fuse in the truck in case it happens away from home!!! Good little bit of info to know in case mine does it!!!!

    Glad you found a quick fix.

    On a previous vehicle of mine, I couldn't get the car to shift out of park. It may not be applicable to Tacomas, but my brake light switch was faulty. This was a switch located on the brake pedal that activated the brake lights. Apparently, to shift out of park, the brake lights actually needed to on and not just the brake depressed.

    I did that, purchase a set of 40 different AMP fuses at Wal-Mart for a previous blown fuse, in this case was when installing a brake controller (30A) I did use temporarily a 10A from the underhood fuse box spares. But now a second fuse blown out was replaced directly from the new ones.

    I still not have an idea of what happened.

    One morning my wife was leaving for work in her Corolla. I heard the GD open and her car start but after a minute she hadn't pulled out.
    I went down to see what the problem was.
    She looks at me worried and says she can't get the car out of park.
    I look down and she doesn't have her foot on the brake pedal.
    I laughed and pointed it out to her.
    She's only been driving this car for 5 years and is only 45.
    BRAIN FART!:D

    You know what, I'm almost sure what is the cause of this problem... Does any one remember from where we are getting the power to light up the 4x4 dial? ... from the connector of the AC temperature knob. This appears to be the missing link. For those who did this mod, had anybody experiencing this problem (or other) ever?

    Thanks,
    Regards.

    Shift interlock. It has become standard on all cars as a safety standard. Check the magnetic clutch wire leading to the compressor. Possible short if they are on the same circuit. If it keeps blowing the fuse, unplug the compressor. If that does no solve the issue locate the compressor relay and replace it. Don't swicth it with another one. My friend did it with his car for his head lights and swapped it with the one next to it. Unfortunatly for him and me it was the fuel pump relay. Didn't tell me until we pulled the pump and checked. I called him worse than a dummy.

    Im having this same issue but it seems all of the fuses are good in the hood and under the dash. IT wont shift out of park. We also had a spare shift lock ecu and tried to test it out with that one.. and still nothing. Am i missing somehing here?


    EDIT: So we ran a wire to the connectors that plugs into the little white box which is im gussing the "shift control computer". When we ran power to it.. we was able to shift the gear out of park. When it is plugged into the box... it dont shift. We came to the conclusion that we have a bad shifter box? Because power is going into it but not coming out to release the shift gear. But we are still trying to see if thats 100% of the failure.
