It possibly could be the nuetral safety switch. somewhere along the drive train there is a switch that detects if the car is gear (automatic trans) or if the clutch is depressed (manual). the switch if on a manual trans would be along the clutch pedal towards the top of the lever above the fulcrom. when depressed (off) the clutch is not depressed when fully extended (on) it is allows the starter to turn over the car.

if you can find the switch you can short the wires and it will think it is ok toi start car (even while in gear so be carefull).

I have a 2002 Escape, sometimes the gear indicator on the dash puts a box around park and reverse at the same time and it wont let me start it until i take it in and out of park several times and the box...

does the gear shift lever that you change gears with seem loose and has a lot of movement up and down until you can get it to the shifting point or is the lever snug and normal tight feeling to it either way a think your neutral safety/range selector switch maybe broken inside this switch will stop the car from being started in any gear except neutral or park for safety reasons and this could be what is happening here normally I think the box should go around any gear you have selected P/R/N/D etc. to show you what gear your in and for overdrive purposes , but it's showing up around 2 selections at one time and the car won't start this is telling me inside that the switch has somehow become broken and this part of it is reading the wrong position then once you move it around a few times it locates itself in the right place and the car starts get a new neutral safety / range selector switch hers what it looks like its on the transmission
the center part with the 2 notches fits on the transmission and don't have a fit when you first put it in and the truck doesn't start this has to be adjusted by someone under the car while you try to start the car your original one maybe can be adjusted but I think it's n/g because it's showing 2 positions at the same time depending on where you buy it the cost will be for aftermarket $20.-$45 for an automatic transmission $65- $85 for a manual one the dealer will be over $100-$150 I hope this helps and please post back with progress or results and please rate me positively good luck stephen

Clicking noise coming from somewhere between the glovebox and firewall on passenger side 2004 pontiac sunfire

Not sure on your model but maybe a relay clicking in and out on top of the heater. That is about all there is there.

Car start out in second gear, po1864 came up. what does this means


P01864 means battery disconnected within last 50 starts. If this occurred occasionally, or just after disconnecting the battery, then the code is not pointing at any fault. Just telling you that the battery has been disconnected. The code will be erased after cranking 50 times.

If the problem comes back times and times again even if you have not disconnected battery in last 50 starts check crank sensor and battery wiring.

Check also oil pump sensor, cam and MAP sensor. If car starts in second gear I will also have a loot to connectors at PCM and TCM and to wiring to throttle position sensor and vehicle speed sensor.

Usually the code is displayed if the battery has been disconnected withing the last 50 starts. In that case there is no fault and the problem with second gear is not related. About the car starting in wrong gear test the solenoids in the valve body, the TPS, the wiring to TCM and the VSS. Here some troubleshooting about similar shifting problems.

I have a 2003 explorer sport. It starts up fine when it's cold, but if the temp is above 90, once I shut down it wont start back up. It will turn over , but quikly dies out even when pressing down on...

you have low fuel pressure for some reason, pump may be going or fuel pressure regualtor on fuel rail is bad.

pressure should be 43 psi, key on , engine off. and 34 with engine running.

Try this to confirm low pressure. Turn key to on and listen carefully for the pump to hum for 5 seconds. When it shuts off, turn key off. wait 30 seconds or until you hear relay click under dash. then turm key on for 5 seconds. repeat one more time. Then try to start engine. If it starts right up, pressure was low.

What you did was prime the system and built up pressure before start.

The pump only runs for 5 seconds when you turn key to ON, unless the engine starts. Then it stays on.

report results. please rate answer

95' cavalier hesitates to start and switch to 2nd gear

My friend it sounds very familiar to a TPS (throtle position sensor). Locate it by the throttle lever on the intake box.Place an ohmmeter on little brute while unplugged set the meter to 100 ohms and manually activate the throttle lever.Should read at 0 closed and 8 to 14 open . If not install a T P S unit.Cheap and readily available at most auto parts stores

Transmition has a had time shifting is automatic

the mechanic should check the shifting gear and the shifting lever or the shift level and also the gear sleeve. Gear sleeve is the one that make the gear function. And lastly don't forget the transmission sensor because sometimes the problem can be found in the sensor .Then try to check the 1st. gear, 2nd gear,3rd gear,N ,R.of the trans mission to be sure .

1998 town & country. It won't start again.

We had the same problem. It was the circuit board in the dash. There were crackes in one of the solder spots. My mechanic removed the dash and did a spot solder on the place with the cracks. It has worked for two months. It seems the solder spot was with a too cool of a solder when it was manufactured. Do it yourself or get your mechanic to fix the probem.

Auto Transmission problem

hi do the simple bits first check the fliud level in the box see if its a clear redish colour if any other colour you have a box problem second when was the last time you chaged the boxes oil and filter a blocked filter will cause your problem then the box itself first clutch could be slipping put the box in first gear chock your wheels up put the handbrake on put your foot on the brake pedal start the engine and rev with your other foot and see when the car stalls it should be around 2500 and 3000 revs if its higher than this the clutch is slipping on that gear after this you will need to take it for pressure testing yates210456
