I have a 98 land rovor will not go in to gear ?

it won\'t go into gear as in the shifter does not come out of "park"? or vehicle will not move when placed in "reverse" or "drive"? if its not coming out of "park" you may either have a faulty brake switch or shifter lock solenoid is stuck. on certain european automobiles i have come across the shifter stays locked because the internal solenoid in the shifter assembly has gone bad and the entire shifter ass\'y would need to be replaced. this is the worst case scenario. majority of the time its a bad brake light switch not sending the signal to the shift interlock to release the solenoid within the shifter.

now if your vehicle is failing to move while in "reverse" or "drive" you have some sort of internal failure with the trans. it can be something as simple as a shift solenoid or major such as broken planetary gear.

Check your shifter linkage, Since they will only start in P or N , Your shifter position sensor may just be knocked out of place or stuck in 5th gear position, even though the shifter is in P ( It used to be called a starter nutrueal safety switch)

How do i remove the manual gear selector on a 93 ranger

remove the knob or slide the rubber boot up the shifter. there are 4 screws under the floor mat that hold the boot in place. after the boot you should see four more bolts holding the shifter in place, they are usually 10mm socket. remove them and remove shifter from the top of trans.

How to unlock gear shift

Turn the key on, and apply the brakes. The gear shifter should than allow you to move the shifter. This is a safety device put in place so as to no have the shifter get knocked into gear by the driver, or a child by accident.

I had to drill the key switch out on my 1998 pontiac grand prix , and now the gear shift out shift into gear it stays locked in place

the ignition swx is connected to the gear shifter by a cable very similar to a bicycle brake cable. in the switch housing is a plunger connected to the cable that is connected to the shifter. a locking device is on the end of the cable on the shifter. try messing around with plunger/cable and or shifter to release lock. just keep in mind if you leave it this way anyone can roll away your car !

Shifter is loose. Bolt or pin fell out of bottom, only have one gear.

when this happend to me i still had all gears. there is no pin or bolt, the shifter is held in place with epoxy and pressure.. its ****, total ****. i suggest looking at the pdf service manuals on and re-building the area that holds the shifter in place. this involves removing the shifter head and leather-ish boot around it (may as well clean it while you've got it off) and then pulling the shifter up into place. then from the underside of the car, inserting some epoxy and or reinforcement brackets (to make it stronger than it originally was) to hold it in place. i used two pieces of 1/8th thick aluminium underneath the little tabs that were originaly glued/pressured into place.

please note the manuals on techcapri are for the 91-93 modles our 94 modle is slightly different, but the manual is still very helpful for identifying parts and how to get at them.
