    Guys.
    Today I stopped at traffic lights and switch the car of and put gear in "P" and then start again and gear stuck in "P" and not moving at all. I can hear click sound when press the brakes but it's not moving from "P".

    Please advise.
    Thx

    No idea, could be anything from gearbox to linkage.

    Really have to connect it to an analyser and read codes, go from there and check out linkage etc.

    Could be the brake light switch or the solenoid in gear selector. Search for "stuck in park" as has been discussed before.

    It was solenoid. Plastic bit broke in that and taken out and now working fine.
    Gears don't get locked now. When parked
    But rest is cool . New cost £602

    That's the fix I'd take if mine had the same fault.
    Just be very careful leaving kids in the car if the engine is running.
