    Hey,



    If the car is put in drive then goes to neautral the problem would be in the automatic transmission. If a electrical fault happens in will go to limp mode and only select thrid gear. This assumes an electrical problem only. But this sounds like mechanical problem in the transmission.



    Was the old fluid burnt and how old was it ?



    Have you run the transmission diagnostic to see what error exists ?

It's an electric-problem,and answer can found on transmission,or the box what is ON the transm.'s SIDE,U can found the box Ur self,if U go under the Maxima,but I can only say,get a good look to the fuses,before U go UNDER the Max,but I think U found those solutions over there..... Even I founded my owns over that.....

Gear shift stuck


Hello Crystal,
It might be the Safety Switch that is defective.
Take to a transmission shop for further diagnostics

Kia troubleshoot


Sorry but you are left to only one solution. Have the car towed to a real repair shop. After it was broken and than someone else took it apart you have no other options.

Will srart by the starter but not by the ignition and won't stay started


First let's define some terminology. The job of the starter motor is to "crank" the engine, if it does this, weather the engine runs is going to depend on the fuel system and the ignition system and good compression. Try this: with one hand, hold the key it the "crank" position, with your other hand, move the gear shift (slowly)from park to reverse to neutral to drive. Make sure you foot is on the brake as it may start in gear. If it starts while doing this, you have a bad neutral safety switch.
Also, It wont stay running when you crank it by jumping the starter if the ignition switch is off. Try doing it again with the key on. If it starts with the key on, and you jumping it at the starter, you probably have a bad, or out of adjustment, ignition switch. If it does not start, with the key on and cranking by jumping the starter, then you probably have a fuel or ignition problem.
Try the above and get back to me. I can walk you through how to check for fuel and spark if it still wont run.

I have a 2005 chevy cavalier i was pulling up to get gas when all of a sudden my gear would not shift to park so i put hte emergency brake on and killed the car now it wont start what could be going on


The neutral safety switch will not let you crank the engine in anything but park and neutral. If something happens to the shift cable the trans may still be in drive.

Ok, engine won't crank , I can hear all relays clicking but no cranking of the engine, usualy after 10-20 atempts it starts but latetly it is getting more dificult,allso I noticed that the shift position...


Try starting the car in neutral. Keep your foot on the brake and put on the emergency brake and try to start it in neutral instead of in park. The vehicle is equipped with a neutral safety switch which does not allow you to start the car in reverse or any of the drive gears. You can only start the car in park or neutral. You may have a problem with the shifter or the shifter cable. On some vehicles the shifter cable can be adjusted.

Put newtransmission on 02cadillac dts.shifts,but stays on neutral


you did not apply vasoline to a nylon washer to keep it in place during assembly. the washers is out of place and will cause this problem
in the old rear wheel drive gm cars if this was done at least you had 1st gear only.
