I have an evoque Range Rover car and I’ve started the engine

Customer Question

I have an evoque Range Rover car and I’ve started the engine this morning but the dial for the gear accelerator has locked so I can’t move it to change gears
JA: How old is the transmission? Have you checked the brake switch?
Customer: Hi , is the transmission the age of the car? no I don’t know how to check the brake switch
JA: What year is your Range Rover?
Customer: 2014
JA: Are you fixing your Range Rover yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I have put the engine on and tried to move the dial but can’t, I’d like to try and resolve it , would it help if I check the brake switch, how do I do that? Do you think it’ll help ?
JA: Is there anything else the Mechanic should know before I connect you? Rest assured that they'll be able to help you.
Customer: no I don’t think the mechanic needs anymore info

Hello, I am Jose Sebastian. Your automotive expert, It's a pleasure to me to attend your question. Thank you very much for trust in just answer.

Dear customer, I would like to know precisely which dial you cannot move, it would be very helpful if you could share a picture with me.

Expert:  sebastian manrique replied 13 days ago.

Dear customer it seems to me that your problem is the gear lever selector, if this is so according to the model there are several ways to unlock it for example removing the coaster you can access an emergency dress to release it, but if the selector is outside it is probably a problem of the brake sensor that is not allowing movement of the selector as the brake sensor works as a kind of protection so that the selector does not move without the knowledge of the user.
