My first guess would be a failed sensor in the transmission. You should be able to get the computer scanned and run the codes to see what the computer is finding.

SOURCE: Doesn't want to shift properly when in Over Drive

its most likely an E4OD,its probably a bad shift solenoid inside the transmission...but you have to take the pan off and i cant quit remember but may also have to pull off the valve body,if that has to be done then there is 8 or 9 ball bearings in there that will fall out.I would call a transmission shop and ask if it has to come out.

SOURCE: truck will start but shift indicator wont light up

Are you sure it wont take off in first gear? The indicator on the dash only shows what gear you put it in.

Toyota wagon with automatic transmission drops out of drive. Shifting to neutral and back to drive fixes the problem but I feel really scared of the unpredictability of this.

no adjusting the cable is hard because it is so percice. If your check engine light is on read the codes and this will tell you what is wrong. a part store will read the codes for u for free
