So, my son accidentally left the sunroof open all night and it poured! For hours!! Now the car won't shift. Is this from the rain?

    If the rain soaked the automatic console shiftier location, the issue will be with the "step on brake" parking interlock solenoid.

    A year make and model would be nice to know.

    Could be... The change is controlled by electronics. Water + electronics don't mix. If you can, use a heater to dry out the interior, and maybe a hairdrier to dry the console.. hope you can get it back and avoid too much corrosion..

    If you mean the trans won't shift out of park then yes the solenoid safety maybe be in water and not working.

    There is NO WAY rain in the passenger compartment caused the transmission to fail quickly enough for you to make the connection. You get more moisture into the transmission driving through puddles.

    "........Now the car won't shift." Do you mean that the transmission doesn't shift?......that the transmission selector won't engage the correct gear/range?........or that the car is shiftless ????

    Sounds like disassociation runs in the family........whatever, we can't make sense of your question.
