    I'm a big believer in using the search function before posting a question that 6 million others have answered.
    But….

    I'm having a hard time finding any info on a broken "shift lock override" on a '91.
    If I want to get it out of "P", I have to depress the small shift lock (and brake of course).
    Any ideas on what’s wrong?
    Thanks,
    -C

    Not sure but I think that there is a failure mode that requires you to pull the little "plug" in the console just north of the shifter. In that exposed hole you need to insert a screw driver to defeat the brake interlock.

    My guess is that it's not sensing that you have pushed on the brake.

    I'm no expert but I recall reading that somewhere on here. Also check the owners manual, I think it's discussed there as well.

    Thanks for searching, the crowd is getting grumpy. ;)

    Oh, welcome to the Mud.

    I would suggest that when you search and find nothing that you reduce the number of words in your search. I used "shift" and found these:
    https://forum.ih8mud.com/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=11001;start=msg99080#msg99080

    https://forum.ih8mud.com/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=3829;start=msg28429#msg28429

    I then did "interlock" and found this one:
    https://forum.ih8mud.com/index.php?board=2;action=display;threadid=1613;start=msg9894#msg9894


    Use the words that most would use not the complete phrase. Good ones might be shift, shifter, interlock, "can't shift", stuck,

    C,

    Many times the problem is a burned out brake light or fuse.
