Check that the selector on the side of the tranny is tight and properly adjusted. Re adjust so that gear selected lines up with lights

SOURCE: 1994 Ford Ranger won't shift into drive

In 9 out of 10 cases when I see this problem in the ranger, it is the planetary gear in the transmission. It is made of the cheapest metal available. It breaks usually from going to park before the truck stops or switching from reverse to drive while still rolling. Just a Idea , But I hope it isn't that . Reverse will work fine for a while, and have no forward gears.

What, is wrong with my suv. It is a automatic. My gear shifter on the steering wheel seems as if it is broke. It moves across the gears but wont go into reverse,drive,neutral,?


it probably did the gear selector has a cable attached to it that runs down to transmission --the cable can become disconnected [plastic clips]due to age wear or damaged by debris look under vehicle and check cable and connector also check the connection at the column

Gear shifter is in Park, but dash reads it's in Reverse. Car won't turn over because it is in Reverse now.


You have to locate where the park ignition switch is located. Some are on the transmission and some are in the column under the dash. It probably got moved.

Nissan Altima 2006 automatic gear shift got stick in neurtral and won"t go into reverse or park can you help


This seems to be a common problem. Sometimes something like a pen or other items find their way to the shifter linkage and it can cause the linkage to bind preventing it going into park etc. Or you may have a bad shifter cable. Remove the housing around the shifter and see if anything did get in the way of the shifter. While the housing is of, move the selector up and down from park to drive. This will give you a better view of what is happening.

When car is in any gear. park, reverse nuetral and drive the gear shifter on dash shows the gear always in PARK


there is a small cable/string attached to the steering column part of the shifter. when you move the shifter it pulls the cable/string, which moves the lever in the cluster on the PRNDL display. basically look carefully at where the shifter base is and you should find the cable/string thing, and reattach it.

Wont shift out of park


1st thing to do is "Check your brake lights" make sure it work, because it trigger the sensors that will allow you to shift into Reverse or Drive.
2nd, Your car turn on, everything seem fine, but it still get stuck half way to R (reverse) then here's the problem. If everything is fine, you can shift half way to R(reverse) and it get stuck half way, then its the Mechanism inside of the Shifter Box that's defect. As this is VERY VERY common in Chrysler 300. And Chrysler should do a defect & recall about this problem. there's a Piece of plastic hook inside the Shifter gear that's broken, because its very very thin, about 1 1/2 Centimeter, therefore, its very easy to break. BUT Chrysler doesn't sell this part alone, they sell the whole Shifter Box for about 350. But that hook is all you need. here's 2 way to fix this problem.

1. You can go directly to a Chrysler Dealer, ask for a SHIFTER GEAR BOX, or GEAR SELECTOR. its about 350 BRAND NEW, then take it to a mechanic for them to install it, $100 for labor as most. 2. if you know a little bit about car, and can fix it yourself, then its not that hard. you can go to a junkyard, buy that Shifter Box yourself, then replace it, or

You can open up that shifter gear box, Modify a hook for that spring, you can either 1. Drill a hole in that plastic piece and hook that spring, or use some type of metal string to ties that spring in place. and i guarantee it will fix the problem.
Try this and reply me. Thank you Sir, Have a nice day.

Gear locks when i park on even a slight incline


ALWAYS engage the Parking Brake BEFORE putting car into "Park". When you want to get out of "Park", put your foot on the brake pedal, move gear shifter into desired gear, THEN take down Parking Brake. If you get stuck (gear shifter doesn't move), then try the "rocking" method (recruit 1 or 2 folks to push your car from behind while you try to move gear shifter into desired gear). Good luck!

Car stops moving in reverse gear


Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.
