1998 gmc 1500 5.7L shifter sticks (auto transmission. ) its a bugger to get out of park, i was thinking the brake sensor (disconected the shifter cable at the tranny)then it shifts fine, and can shift fine...


Shift interlock system problem . Not the cable . Your vehicle has a safety system that won't allow the gear selector to be moved from park without the brake pedal pushed . Lock solenoid keeps gear selector from moving . Trying to force it will break something . Do you know how to test electrical circuits with a volt meter ? Here is a web site for free wiring diagrams http://www.bbbind.com/free_tsb.html
Enter the vehicle info. Year , make , model and engine size. Under system click on transmission / transaxle , then under subsystem click on shift interlock . Click the search button then the blue link. Park neutral switch , brake switch and the shift interlock solenoid , check electrical circuits .

Pulled into a parking place. Tried to put in park, but shift just moved up and down...didn't engage. Somehow, it moved to second, but then wouldn't go anywhere else. Turned car off, and it won't start...


Your shift cable has came unhooked from either your transmission or your shifter. Most likely it’s at the trans. There are little plastic retainers at the ends of the shift cables that get old and brittle and will break. You may be able to match one up from a auto parts store but sometimes you have to replace the whole cable.. The vehicle will not start because it’s still in gear, no vehicle will start unless it’s in either park or neutral..

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!

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.

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.
