Bad automatic trans shifter solenoid, located under the console between the seats.....quick fix while waiting for a new solenoid is simply unhook the lever from the automatic trans solenoid.

TRANSMISSION CABLE


On my '96 Olds 98, brake transaxle shift interlock is simply a pain in the ***. Solution: always press foot brake AND parking brake hard and hold while shifting into park and shutting down engine. Try not to park "downhill." Read owners manual;"shifting out of park." This even calls for opening and shutting the door! If you can't start in park, try neutral. If all else fails, unhook red battery cable for a minute. Re-attach and restart car, which should re-set computer to recognize your key, which has a computer chip embedded in it. Worst option EVER invented!

2000 sable- can't shift out of park. shifter glides and needle on dash moves there's no gears shifting. is the transmission blown?


Not likely a blown transmission. More of a shifter cable issue. There is an adjustment nut on the ****** end. It could be loose or missing. If the nut is fine you have a broken cable.

I have a 2005 Chrysler 300, As I shifted the car from park to reverse I heard and felt a pop in the gear shift. The gear shift moves but the car is stuck in low.


Go to the Prindle switch where the cable meets the transmission and check if it has not unhooked. Move the shifter all the way to the Park position and adjust/tighten.

My 1997 Ford F-350 truck won't shift from park to drive, and 'ABC' is lit up in yellow on the dashboard. What does 'ABC' mean on the dashboard of a ford f350?


I have never heard of a ABC light on any ford truck what I think you mean is the ABS. To repair the ABS light you need a diagnostic computer to pull the code find the sensor that is bad and replace it. More than likley it is one of the speed sensors on the wheels, you have one for each wheel. That will fix the ABS light now not able to shift it out of park, they utilize a cable on the shifter. The cable itself may be frozen so bad to the point where it wont shift at all. What I would do to varify that is first block wheels so the truck wont roll, unhook cable down at transmission than see if still wont shift or is very difficult to shift, if so replace cable and you should be all set.

Car starts fine just started this problem,can't depress button on floor shifter to get out of park. unless physically remove the park shift release cover on the side of the shifter and depress the white...


This car has a lock out device as all vehicles have. You need to depress the brake firmly to shift into gear as you may know. The solenoid that retracts the lock out for the shifting is at fault and needs to be replaced. You will see it if you remove the entire top of the shifting console

Honda wont go into nuetral


Hook up some jumper cables to the battery cables on the honda, turn the key to on position and apply brake and then try to shift it. Some cars need power to allow shifter to dissengage. Or just unhook the shifter linkage from the trans. and shift it directly at the trans. just be sure the parking brake is on and wheels choked so it does not roll when you pop it out of park.

Car Won't Fully Shift into Park


You either have problem with the shifter assy, or the shifter cable has come out of adjustment.
If you remove the shifter bezel and center console you will be able to see the shifter cable. There will be a white or black lift tab on the cable. Release the tab and and place shifter in park. If it still does not go into park that means that you will need a shifter assy. If it goes into park with the tab released you push the tab back down with it still in park.

That should take care of your problem.
