#54 of 111 Wont Shift from Park/No Brake Lights
Jun 25, 2010 (4:15 am)
Have a 2001 Chevy Prizm... Starting yesterday it would not shift out of park and the brake lights stopped working. I thought it was the Stop Light Sensor so I replaced that, still not working. I was able to use the saftey override next to the shifter to get it out of Park and drive it home but now I need to fix it. Any ideas of what to check next?

I'm not sure what you mean by "Stop Light Sensor" but, if you're referring to the "Brake Light Switch" on the brake pedal arm and you've already replaced that, check your fuses. I believe the brake light fuse is in the under dash fuse block. If that's good then it's time to start checking the wires going to the brake light switch and make sure the connector is seated properly.

#60 of 111 Parasitic Drain on Battery

I have spent over $400 on mechanics replacing parts, alt and starter in what seems to boil down to a parasitic drain on the battery. Have traced this down to the fuel injector circuits, i.e. when I pull the fuse for that circuit the drain goes away. There seem to be several electrical connections but can't seem to isolate exact cause. Anyone have any thoughts or has anyone had any similar problems that can enlighten me as to how or what to replace? Thanks

There was a recall on Geo Prizms related to battery issue. You can call Chevy's customer service line, give them your VIN and they'll let you know if your car is one of thousands needing something replaced. No matter how old the recall, Chevrolet will fix it at no cost. Yay for recalls!
