Question about 2004 Lincoln Navigator

Shifter broken While driving down the raod I was fiddling with the console shifter and lifted it off of the stick. I mean it literally came off in my hands. I know I need parts but how much do they cost and does anyone have an exploded view of how they go back together? Thank you, Shifty

Ok shifty, did u look at the piece that came off carefully, I would think there is a small set screw that is supposed to hold it in place. It probably loosened up, allowing u to rip it off with your wild shifting technique. So look also where it came off, to see if u can spot a point where something was holding the 2 together. I think it's just a matter of tightening a loose set screw. Check the floor and between seats for a very small set screw, although it probably is stll in the handle that popped off.

Ihave 2009 chevy impala. can't get key out of ignition switch

If it is a floor shift models it is a broken wire on the solenoid on the right lower of the shifter. Take the console out by unsnapping the trim from around the shifter and removing it. Next take out the screws (7mm, 2 of them on either side of the shifter) and there are 4 more of the same size inside the cubby in the console, exposed by lifting tthe cubby lid, emptying the crap out of it and lifting the felt up. Take all of the screws out and then move the shifter to the 1st gear position and remove a phillips head screw on the front of the shifter to remove the shift handle. Now lift out the console. You will more than likely see the broken wire when you look at the lower right side of the shifter close to the floor. Repair this connection by cutting all 4 wires leading to the harness plug and splicing 4 extra inches of wire to each and also repair the connection that broke out of the harness plug. The only option I found was to buy a fuel pump wire harness repair kit to get the connecters needed. The problem is that GM did not put enough slack in the wires leading to the shift interlock solenoid and when repeated drive to park shifting is done will stress this connection. Sometimes it will make it not disengage the shift interlock solenoid and you can not get it into drive from park, other times it breaks the wire for the key release. This should fix your problems, otherwise you have a problem with the BCM. SHould save you all a ton of GM service department spending.

How do I get a stuck key out of an ignition lock cylinder on a 2006 chevy impala 3.9 motor

Does it go into the lock position ? Will the shifter go into the park position ? Is it a automatic transmission ?
Electronic Park Lock (EPL)/Ignition Lock Cylinder Control Actuator: If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission and a floor mounted console gear shift, it has an ignition lock cylinder control actuator system in the steering column. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator purpose is to prevent the ignition key from being turned to the OFF position when the transmission is in any position other than PARK and the vehicle may still be moving. The column ignition lock system consists of an ignition lock cylinder control actuator, and a park position switch that is located in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch. The ignition lock cylinder control actuator contains a pin that is spring loaded to mechanically prevent the ignition key cylinder from being turned to the lock position when the vehicle transmission is not in the PARK position. If vehicle power is lost, and/or the transmission is not in the PARK position the operator will not be able to turn the ignition key to the lock position and will not be able to remove the ignition key from the column.
There should be a hole in the bottom of plastic steering cover or a rubber cover that comes out . you can stick your finger up there an there is a button you push that will allow you to take out the key !

Shifter linkage cable

You will need to have it up on a lift to inspect the under carriage where it hooks up to the transmission. Sounds like you lost something.

Anti shift gear car wont come out of park

follow the steps . God bless you
    • 1 Start the engine. Press firmly on the brake while wiggling the shifter from side to side.
    • 2 Remove the console surrounding the shifter. It is usually very easy although you may need to use the screwdriver to lift an edge or remove a clip
    • 3 Look inside the shifter mechanism for any sticky substance. Often when drinks are spilled on the console they seep down into the shifter mechanism and make the interlock solenoid sticky, meaning that it sticks closed when you press the brake and the car won't come out of park.
    • 4 Remove any sticky substance with the alcohol. Start the engine, press the brake and try to move the shifter out of park. If it still does not move then there may be another issue with the interlock.
    • 5 Examine the shifter for a release button that will allow you to move the vehicle out of park so it can be taken to a repair shop. It is usually hidden under a small flap or cover that will have to be lifted with a small screwdriver.

2001 pontiac aztek Has floor mounted shift. Won't shift out of park.

First of all, you are stepping on the brake pedal when you try to shift. Had to ask.

It could be a number of things. I have a 2000ish Grand Am that wouldn't shift. The problem turned out to be the T-handle on the shifter. Most GM shifter handles come off the same way. If there is a rubber/leather boot, pull that down a little to expose a metal clip.
The metal clip can be pulled off straight for\ward (I think), and the handle comes off.
The shifter will be a tube with a plastic rod sticking out of it. Try pushing the rod in, and see if the shifter works. If yes, replace the handle. If not, the problem is probably down in the shifter.

When you step on the brake, there is a cable going from the brake pedal to the shifter. Step on the brake and you should hear something moving in the center console/shifter. If not, the cable could be detached or broken.

The shifter itself may be broken, but that can be tough to get to.
The could be something wrong at the transmission, or inside the trans.

I was driving the Chevy Cavalier. A 1998. I was in first gear until about 3500 rpm, and when i went to put it into second, it slipped down into fourth gear. Now it is stuck in fourth gear, and wont go...

Sounds like you have a broken or disconnected shift cable.There are two cable attaching at different angles.Either disconnected at trans or below shifter.

How do i change light in shifter

This is not the easiest fix, so if you are unfamiliar with car electronics or console removal and replacement i would advise against trying this yourself. It can be done easily by someone skilled with car electronics.

1. Remove chrome bezel, Its popped in place so get a small flathead to wedge it up SLOWLY. There are four contact points that hold this in place. The contacts are near the "P" and "1" symbols.

2. lift console lid and unscrew both hex screws with a socket wrench.

2a. You may need to reposition the shifter from park to Drive in order to pull the section out completely. Dont forget to apply the parking brake! with key in ignition but engine off, shift back to drive or neutral.

3. start lifting the console/ cupholder section up from the side nearest the screws you just removed. This big piece will pop out with gentle pressure.

4. on top of the shifter remains the black bezel with your shifter positions "P, R, N, D etc. This black piece pops out but cannot be fully removed because the shifter handle is too wide. Pop the 4 contacts in each corner to lift the piece.

5. you will now see the "track" section of the shifter. White plastic frame on your drivers side and black on the opposite side. Underneath the white side, you will see 2 small wires leading into your shifter symbol case. These wires are your power source for the bulb.

6. Twist the bulb frame (the black piece that the wires lead into) to unlock the bulb. If the bulb is fried it will have broken filaments.

I had the same issue with my light going out, only my issue was the wiring had gone bad from rubbing against the shifter. I clipped out the bad section of wire and replaced it with a small LED light.

If you decide to do the same, the White wire is your hot 12volt switched. The black is your negative/ground.

Dual gate Hurst shifter adjustment

Hello! Here is what I was able to track down:

Hurst Dual Gate Shifter Assembly Parts Breakdown:


Removing & Replacing The Hurst Dual/Gate
1. Disconnect car battery.

2. Remove Knob. Remove four Phillips head screws that hold escutcheon plate down to console.
NOTE: SHORT SCREW IS USED IN REAR RIGHT - HAND HOLE. Remove escutcheon plate and console from floor tunnel.

3. Lift selector indicator lamp housing out of shifter and pull bulb socket out of lamp housing. Disconnect wire connectors from combination Back - up light / Neutral safety switch.

4. Remove two 1/4 - 20 x 1/2 hex-head cap screws that fasten Dual / Gate shifter to rear mounting bracket. Remove 1/4 - 20 x 1/2 hex - head cap screw that holds cable bracket to shifter frame. Remove two #10 - 32 x 3/8 slotted head cap screws that fasten Dual / Gate shifter to front bracket. Free shifter from cable by removing cotter pin and washer.

5. Remove combination Neutral - safety / and Back - up light switch. Install switch on Replacement unit.

6. Install replacement shifter unit in reverse order of removal of original unit.

Loosen nut that fastens cable pin to transmission control arm. Loosen nut enough to allow pin to slide in the slot in the arm. Turn the arm to NEUTRAL position. Move the stick to NEUTRAL. Tighten the adjusting nut. Test movement of stick and check to be sure that stick positions agree with transmission control operation.

8. SEE FIGURE 2 (Below)
Connect car battery. Apply hand brake. Move stick to NEUTR AL position. Press foot on brake pedal. Start engine. If starter fails to operate, Neutral Safety switch must be adjusted. Adjustment is made with a long-bladed Phillips screwdriver through the "Street" gate. This screw is directly in front of the st ick. Turn the screw about 1/2 turn past the point where starter operates. (STICK MUST REMAIN IN "NEUTRAL" WHILE ADJUSTMENT IS MADE). Starter should operate ONLY when stick is in PARK or NEUTRAL position.


Hope this helps and thanks for using FixYa!
