RRC Transmission locked ?

How do you move the gear/ gear selector for an 1994 RRC automatic transmission when it's together, but out of the vehicle and separated from the engine? I made the mistake of putting it in "park" and now it's locked A real bonehead move, I know.

the shifter has an interlock on it that requires a signal from the brake light switch. IE you have to have your foot on the brake to move it in the truck. Out of the truck take a battery or battery charger and supply juice and bobs your uncle. That or simply unhook the cable from the shifter and you can move the lever on the trans manually.

Thanks Doug! I'll go down to the garage and try disconnecting the cable. I thought it would have locked in the tranny somewhere. Great news! Well, now that I have everything torn apart I am starting to think that I may go ahead with the auto conversion after all. the more I get into it the less scary it looks Besides, my knee and more importantly my Wife will thank me. Gotta keep 'em both happy.

It worked for me. I just removed the little safety pin and the cable, now it's free again. Thanks!

If the bezel is off the shifter, you can push the interlock pin in with a screwdriver and then move the lever. It looks like a silver button, the same kind of thing that would be on a crutch for adjusting the height of the leg.

Andy, I removed the shift lock solenoid from my '93 transmission.
Probably similar to your '94.

The interlock prevents you from moving the lever with your foot off the brake pedal. It can and does go wrong which will leave you "stuck in park", as Dr Bang must have experienced since he removed the offending member entirely. I also perform this minor surgery to any RRC I drive.
There is another interlock solenoid on the transfer case operating lever. This prevents you from moving the Xfer case lever when in gear (D or R)
You can remove this one too as long as you remember to shift into low range only when in Park or Neutral.
