!983 280zx turbo automatic shifter problem.

My automatic shifter won't shift out of park with the key on and the brake peddle depressed but when the key is off it shifts fine, any ideals thanks in advance. Also the brake lights don't come on either if the problems are related.

First check fuses. 2nd See if brake light come on with hazards on. 3rd check the brake sensor behind the break pedal. Put tape to keep it closed and check lights and shifter for any change. Make adjustment if needed or replace.

Thanks, I'm going to go out and double check everything again today paying particular attention to the brake light switch. I'll let you know how it goes.

I would be interested in knowing the difference in the turbo and non-turbo automatic transmissions. Thanks

Found it. Stop and tail light sensor under the assistance's seat wasn't plugged in. Thanks again for the input.
