Question about 1999 Chevrolet Tracker

1 Answer

1999 Tracker automatic will not go into gear while in park position!

This just started happening today! I have had no other problems and I tried to take off the access hole cover and use the return plate as directed, but. It did not work at all......Anyone else ever have this problem?

Please HELP!

Thanks

    The vehicle will not move into reverse from the park position. It is an automatic 4 cyl btw, & I don't want to try and force it out of anger but the 3rd time it happened it seemed to stay in park and not move at all into reverse.

    I did try the solution in the book ,setting the parking brake & removing the access cover and manually moving the return plate toward the rear of the vehicle. Did NOT work and I am not messing with it anymore.

    Thanks for the reply anyhow!

    Well that tells alot it sounds to me like you hane got something wedged inbetwen the transmistion and the shifter linketch and by forceing it you proble kinked the cable that runs from the shifter to the transmistion I would check that first this should solve this for you if not your gear bands in the transmistion if so it is time to get it rebult or time to get a new one but lets hope not.

1999 Volvo S40 cannot remove key


What make vehicle ? Most all vehicles have a safety system .Don't try an force anything you'll break it !
Electronic Park Lock (EPL)/Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator: If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission and a floor mounted console gear shift, it has an ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in any position other than PARK and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of an ignition lock cylinder control actuator, and a park position switch that is located in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column. They also have this on column mounted shifters !

1999 Regal GS -stalls, starting trouble, won't shift now


the batt is suspect...take it to autozone, or other place, they'll check it out free......the shifting out of park is a seperate issue, the pawl for the steering/shifter is not working properly....did you notice if the steering wheel would turn when the shifter is stuck?....probably not....when this happens try to turn the wheel back and forth-not hard but not gently- a little graphite dust sprayed in there would help.......hope this helps you out

Parked in driveway and will now not go into any gear


if your driveway is slanted and your vehicle is an automatic then there is a very good chance that you will have to jack up the wheels that have power to them...rears....and set your parking brake then lower your vehicle again...then you will be able to shift

1999 Volvo S80 stuck in park


Hi there this sounds like a common fault it also happens on xc70 xc90 an new s80 if you remove the suround from the gear selector you should be able to see the gear linkage cable too the left hand side towards the back of the cable there is a push fit lock nut it is yellow and plastic which locks cable into position it sounds as though the push nut is not gripping the cable if you gently prise open the yellow part to the left of th car it should open the cable is spring loaded so it will stay in position after releaseing the nut push the nut as far forward as it will go so it moves forward on the cable once you have done this push the yellow push nut back in to secure the cable then you should be able to use your car again but what i would sugest is to get it replaced as its started to wear and will only happen again at a later date hope this helps tony.t
