Question about 2001 Mazda Tribute
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.

Hello,I just got the problem fixed today and it could be the same problem you may have. You can either take it to a auto mechanic or (maybe) you can try this yourself,its not a major problem. I had a mobile mech come and take a look at it and the shift cable under the steering wheel slipped off so he removed the bottom piece under the steering wheel and there is a cable that looks like a pulley,that moves the gears in "P to "N" "R" and so on,so he recommended me to purchase a new shift cable which cost me $60 and he repaired it for me so it wont be slipping anymore,so to make a long story short,you may need a new shfting cable where you can purchase either at FordMotors Dealership or Mazda.Hope this helps
