Question about 2000 Cadillac DeVille
When the shifter is moved from the park position to forward or reverse, the position indicator does not move. The transmission was fine the night before the problem and the fluid is up. I checked the fuses and they are OK. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated. Thanks; Phil
Trans does not need to be rebuilt these transmissions have several electrical components in the oil pan of the transmission if you are able to move the shifter and the gear indicator does not move or the car does not move this could be a failed shift positionng sensor a low cost repair also called an IMS module

internal transmission problem. Unless you know how to rebuild a transmission it is best to take the dealr or a transission repair shop like AAMCO.

The first thing to check is the linkage. Sometimes the linkage will slip, Block the wheels on the car (both front and rear) to prevent rolling. Locate the shift linkage on your transmission, and loosen the nut. You should be able to move the shift lever through all the gears, including "P" and "R". Place the transmission shift lever in "Park" (on the transmission) then move the shift lever (inside the car) in the "P" position and tighten the nut (not a bad idea to use a new locking nut here) You should now be able to shift through all gears. If this does not work, you have a more serious problem that may include a worn or broken belt or broken parking pawl inside the transmission.
