SOURCE: Gear shift is broken in a 2001 Mazda Tribute 3.0

Mine did the same thing on May 31. Turns out the cable that passes through the firewall from the steering column to the side of the transmission had come disconected at the transmission. I was able to re-connect it using a tie wrap for a temporary solution. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: My 2001 Mazda tribute column

The same thing happened to my 2001 Mazda Tribute. It was stuck in Neutral. The shifter cable fell off the little metal post under the steering column. To fix it I removed the plastic column covers. Put the round end of the cable back on the little silver colored post. Then secured it on the post with a ring type push nut from Ace Hardware. Total cost of repair was sixty cents. The cables are not always broken. They just fall of the little post.

SOURCE: 2001 Mazda Tribute No transmission-- it will

The plastic rod ends on the cable assy that goes between the shft lever in the colum and the transmittion are worn. I change the cable for the same reason last week and that fixed the problem.
The cable part number is MZEC01-46-500E the price from the Mazda dealer was US $ 64.98. Is easy to change all you need is aphillips screw driver & pliers

20005 mazda tribute wont go into reverse but when shifting to reverse it will go in drive mode


It sounds as though the shift cable might be going bad. I has the same issues on my 2003 Mazda Tribute and eventually it will break. It is a fairly simple fix if you have any mechanical skills. I believe the cable was around $175.00 bucks. The cable isn't what really goes bad it is the pin that is attached to the cable where it bolts to the transmission but it is a one piece unit. There have been people that repair the pin part only and there are a few youtube videos showing how to do that. If you find where the cable attaches on the shift lever on the transmission you can shift the gears by hand if you have someone in the vehicle putting the brakes on. you should be able to go through all the gears and this will let you know for sure the cable pin is going bad.

WON'T GO IN REVERSE


the most likely culprit is that shift linkage is out of alignment or worn out component, i recommend garage repair because if done incorrectly it can shift gears without warning and damage trans or cause accident
