This may sound really stupid but does he have the key all of the way in the ignition? I had a very temperamental Camry and once I couldn't get it in gear and it was because of the key not being all of the way in the ignition.

It depends if it is a standard or automatic transmission.































If it is a standard transmission, the engine is running and it won't go into gear when the clutch is pressed, the clutch is not dis-engaging the input shaft to the transmission. There is a problem with the clutch, slave cylinder or clutch cylinder.































If it is an automatic transmission and will not shift out of "Park" when the brake pedal is pushed, the interlock with the brake is mis-adjusted or not working. This shifter has a small tab you can open and by-pass that interlock with a small screw driver. It should then be able to shift out of "Park".















































Good luck

I'm pretty sure that car has an electronic park/neutral safety switch that engages when the brake is applied. If the battery is dead it wont work. Replace the battery..if that doesn't fix it, it's prolly a bad park/neutral safety switch. Hope this helps.
