Question about 2002 Jeep Wrangler

1 Answer

2002 jeep wrangler 4.0 auto will not start, maybe shift sensor??

Had problem before, turn key, nothing happens. Shift out of park into neutral, and shift back to park with a littel force and it usually would start. However, now it will not start. Maybe a sensor in the shifter line? Do not know. Anyone else have this problem, and if so, what was resolution? Any help would be appreciated. Mike in New York.

Neutral safety switch is either bad or out of adjustment. On stickshift cars, usually found above clutch pedal. On automatics, aw4 trans is on passenger side of trans, On 727 Chrysler trans it's on the top left rear edge of trans casting just above the pan.

My jeep wrangler safari cant move the automatic shift out of park


There is a safety switch on the brake pedal and if it fails you cannot move the gear shift lever. Check under the dash on the brake pedal shaft for the switch and make sure it is not loose, disconnected, damaged or failed.

2002 jeep wrangler won't come out of park even after pushing brake


Could be the brake switch or the shift lock solenoid. You may be able to get it out of park by trying it with the key between lock and on.

My jeep wrangler 2008 - I shifted to reverse then to parking, when i release the breaks it kept going in reverse. So i turn off the engine. now it wont start the engine, neither the shifter will move


The shifter cable has broken more than likely ,Find the shift shaft on the transmission,,block the wheels and remove the shift cable from the shift shaft,put the gear shift in park,then shift the shift shaft in park,then it will start,Then of course you will have to replace the shift cable.

I have a 2007 Cadillac CTS. I go to turn the key and nothing happens. All onboard elctronics and a/c are functional. Battery life shows to be good. I have also tried using my other key set and nothing....


Test the neutral safety switch by doing the following steps.

1)foot on brake
2)turn key to on position
3)shift lever to neutral (N)
4)start the engine
5)shift the lever to Park (P)

If the engine can start at N and not at park then it's the neutral safety switch.
