Auto transsmision shifter lockout solenoid

Had a situation on the trail that, due to the loss of power, my shifter was stuck in park... Is there an emergency by pass in a 97 d90 that will release the lock out solenoid?

Or you have to jump underneath the truck and release the cable on the side of the trans and manually put it in gear... Make sure you have someone start it before you do it... And pleeeease keep in mind that when you are under it and put it in gear, if someone isn't holding the brake on etc you could be runded over...

No power... Couldn't start it... Just wanted to get it into neutral for winching out to a place where we could work on it...

Then you just need to disconnect the cable from the left side of the trans and manually take it out of park...I think it's just held in by cotter pin..and a washer underneath it..don't lose it... Hope you're not in deep water...lol...

Yah. Ended up dragging it up a slope out of the mud pit wit tires locked. I wanted to avoid that situation next time.

Transfer box in neutral should do the trick.

Not quite sure how BDR did it but I don't need to step on the brake of my build to move it out of park. Curiously it will even start in gear...

That was my first thought but I couldn't get the transfer box out of gear either...

They probably removed the lockout solenoid.

Nope...if it will start in gear they have bridged or eliminated the neutral safety switch.. Check to make sure you have reverse lights..

If it was that easy to take it out of gear it would make it that much easier to steal it on a tow truck.. I think you will find the 97s have a lockout solenoid which prevents moving high to low unless the ignition is on..easy enough to bypass/remove but as mentioned..let's someone put it in neutral without the key on..

I guess on a '97 you must have the transmission in neutral to switch to low range. I can switch mine with the truck off, and I thought you could do that with Disco's too, but I'm probably wrong.

Disco's have both the shiftlock solenoid and the Transfercase solenoid. The shiftlock solenoid can be removed. I removed my Transfercase solenoid and then the truck wouldn't start. Apparently the alarm ECU gets a ground from the solenoid. I had to run a new ground to one of the wires on the Alarm ECU and then it would crank and fire.
