    I have a 2001 Subaru Outback and when it's in Park with the key on and
    step on the brake, it makes a fairly loud clicking noise between th
    radio and the glove box. Only happens when the key is on.

    When in Reverse or Drive... and I step on the brake it doesn't mak
    this noise.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advanc

    Maybe the Neutral Safety?

    The noise is caused by the shifter lock solenoid, the one that prevents
    shifting into gear unless you are stepping on the brake pedal.

    Good luck

    My 03 Outback doesn't have the solenoid click or the need to put the brake
    on before shifting..... again normal I suppose...probably a different
    gearbox?
