Car stuck in first gear wont shift at all


Suspect the clutch is frozen and even when you press the pedal it does not disengage. If it shifts into other gears without the engine running. you will need to break the clutch free. Put it is high gear with the clutch depressed and rock the car back and forth with a bunch of friends pushing on it.

2005 taurus wont go into park


teh difference in neutral and park is the ratcheted gear that keeps the car from rolling in park. Check the lock gear on the tranny to make sure it engages and the car does not move. I think there is a connection to hte break pedal too to keep from going into park inadvertently without being stopped nad break pedal pushed. Look at those to prerequisits foror a clue...

My 97 blazer wont go in gear


the trans receives a signal from a censer that tells it you have applied the break, which allows it to shift. do your break lights turn on when you push on the break?

2006 Cobalt . The Gear shift is stuck in park.


theres a switch that controls the shifter when the brake is applied. try putting the car into gear with the key on accessory, not on. if it goes into gear the switch needs to be replaced.

Wont go into reverse


good morning and welcome to fixya
very nice car. dumb question for you, is the car still under any warranty that covers the drivetrain? it sounds like to me that the reverse shift solenoid has either one gone bad or two the wire harness going to it has an issue. are there any check engine lights on, if so have those been recovered and diagnosed yet? does the vehicle do fine in all other gears, no slipping or anything. does the auto stick work ok? let me know so i can try to help you out more. thank you

My car will start but the gear wont come out of park


Sounds like a bad brake switch. It has a shift interlock system that requires power from the brake switch to move the shifter.

Gear shifter will not go into park


There is a plastic actuator stick under the shift knob. Remove the "horse shoe" clip from the shift knob and remove knob by pulling strait up. You can twist it right and left a very small amount to loosen the knob, but not much.
Once you have the shift knob removed you will see the plastic actuator stick. Push down on the stick and put shift lever in park. If that works, the shift knob or stick is worn out.
Let me know.
Regard,
