Sounds like the cable or linkage that connects to the transmission is broken or disconnected.

SOURCE: 2003 honda pilot won't shift into drive

On my Honda Pilot I experienced the same problem having difficulty changing the gear shifter from park to drive. I drove it to my Honda dealer and the technician explained that the problem was a brake sensor was worn and needed to be replaced. This is because the brakes must be engaged before shifting from park into drive and that the sensor gets worn over time. As I remember, the sensor and labor to install was somewhere between $25 to $50 to replace. It now works like a charm.

My gears want move in drive or reverse but will if I put in 3rd gear then drive once driving tranny shifts smoove could that be a bad module


If you can get it to work right by doing that (shift threw all gears), then it isn't the module. I would start with checking ground points. Battery to body, battery to engine and engine to body. These are cables. Then there are 1 or 2 grounds on the engine from the harness and a couple on the transmission. If these check out, then I would say you have a bad harness in the transmission. Goes to the solenoid pack/ valve body.

What causes 1996 Dodge Neon SOHC automatic transmission to delay or slip shifts?


that is a hum dinger, largest ever posted, in one shot.
very good.!
one word , the transmission slips. (never drive a slipping tranny)
overheat indicator.! that is key.
many newer cars will change the transmission shifting any time
the engine over heats.
and overheat wins over transmission , every time.
if the engine burns up, what good is any transmission.? nada.

solve overheat first.

slip or flare.
is when the engine RPM rises fast and the car dont go faster.
SLIPS.
and slipping burns up trannyclutchs and increases the damage. inside the transmission, dont do that. dont allow it,
park it and fix it.

on some tranny there is a temperature sensor that the TCM
watches and changes shift patterns based on AFT fluid temps.
and if the ATF fluid gets too hot , it takes actions. to keep the tranny from harm.

why not get a scan too and see what DTC errors there are..
DTC, engine overheate.
DTC< tranny overheat (caused by above)

Are you saying you can not move shifter while driving or it will not shift out of 3rd gear? If just the fact it will not from 3rd gear sounds like it could be in safe mode. Is check engine light on?

Shifter goes through gears when off, but once started it will not go into gear. why might this be?


This indicates your clutch needs adjustment or the pressure plate is worn out. If the clutch will not disengage with the engine turning the gears inside the trans continue to turn so you can not shift gears. If you are driving you can shift when you rev the engine to match internal gear speed. You can shift with out the clutch up shift and down shift. One thing to look for is the clutch oil reservoir check to see if she has enough oil.

1984 Chevy 3/4 ton truck electrical shutdown on gear shift


I'd start looking for a loose or bad connection in the steering column. I doubt if it's a short or you'd be blowing fuses all over the place. Likely as you move the shift lever it is moving a wire that goes into or out from the ignition switch (on top of the column, under the dash)
