SOURCE: Mazda 92 B2200 Auto Pickup Will not shift from Park to Drive

I'm going to go out on a limb and guess that when you park the car, you pull up the hand (park) brake, shift from drive straight to park and then take your foot off the foot brake and the car moves slightly as it transfers the weight of the car from the foot brakes to, in your case, the transmission rather than the park brake.
Most people do.

When you do this, you're usually putting the weight of the car onto a small lever engaging notches on the drive shaft in the transmission, not the hand brake. The hand brake's designed to hold the car, the lever isn't, it's there just-in-case.
Take a look at to see how flimsy this part is.

  • To fix the problem, you'll probably have to get this part in your transmission replaced. Fortunately it's the least significant part of the transmission so don't let them shaft you just because it's part of an automatic transmission.

  • To fix what caused the problem, you need your hand brake / park brake adjusted at the handle. You'll probably find that it adjusts at the other end (inside the rear wheel hubs) whenever you reverse.

For what it's worth, to avoid doing this damage to automatic transmissions whenever I'm stuck in one, I shift to Neutral then take my foot off the foot brake, then the car moves as it's weight shifts from the foot brake to the park brake which I often haven't pulled hard enough. Only when, in neutral, the car is stationary without the foot brake do I put it in park.
In Australia, it became illegal a couple of years ago to not be in the driver's seat when the engine's running. My understanding is that this was because, when the engine's running, sometimes older Automatic transmissions damaged in this way can shift out of Park. This is believed to be what has happened when you see unoccupied cars reversing in circles on "wildest police video" programs on TV. I also heard of some Borg-Warner automatic transmissions fitted to 80s model Ford Falcons (common in Australia), 70s model German saloons, which were particularly prone to Park failing to hold the car on a slope. I drove one for many years in a '75 BMW 528 in which some of it's other drivers developed the same habit.
Similarly, in my own car, I don't take my foot off the clutch until I've taken it off the brake without the car moving. Though the local Road & Traffic Authority regulation states "First gear if you're facing uphill, Reverse if you're facing downhill" I do the opposite because whatever damage might be done to panels will be cheaper than what would be done to the engine if the hand brake failed and it's not going to make much difference in slowing down a rolling car, especially with this one.

SOURCE: how to put on ignition switch on a '88 mazda b2200

If you mean actually replacing the ignition switch on the vehicle with a locking column. You need to do this. Dicconnect the battery, remove the lower panel of the dash if there is any. There is a bolt on the steering column near the fire wall on most vehicles, remove this bolt, it will release the spline on the steering column. Disconnect all wiring going to the column, unbolt the column from the dash support. Remove the column from the truck, on the ignition switch you will see where the two shear bolts screw the assembly together, center punch the center of each bolt. Now drill the bolt with a 1/8" drill about 1/4" to 3/8" deep. Now use a 3/8" drill and drill out the shear head until it comes off the bolt. You can now remove the switch assembly from the column. The new assembly should come with new shear off bolts so when you bolt it in place when tightned they will break off rendering it tamperproof again. Most vehicles are designed like this now to stop theft. Check the column for operation before reinstalling it in the reverse of above. You just want to make sure the key locks and unlocks the column before reinstalling in the vehicle. You may want to do this before you totally tighten the bolts and break them off permanently. Good luck, RAC

Hotwire ignition switch on 2005 impala

Why ? Anti-theft system problem ? The ignition switch on this vehicle is a input to a control module (BCM) body contol module !
This vehicles BCM functions as the Power Mode Master (PMM). Refer to Power Mode Description and Operation for a complete description of power mode functions.
You could probably get the engine to crank but if the system doesn't see a coded message from the transponder in the PASSKEY 3 key the anti-theft system software won't let the vehicle start and run . Plus the steering wheel may not unlock and also it may not come out of gear ! Can You Hotwire car Like in the Movies Hollywood Secrets Revealed

I lost my key. i had no money so i tried 2 hotwire my own car.everything has been torn out by a friend as far as hotwiring it. but it will not turn over. what am i missing

You are missing the key and common sense. Most newer vehicles cannot be hotwired due to security systems. Having a friend try to start it without any knowledge of how the systems work will only increase the cost of getting it fixed. year/make/model??? This info is needed in order to offer any assistance.

I need to hotwire my car it's a 2004 Chevy aveo broke key and gotta move the car

Hi Jennifer:
I'm sorry but I can't tell you how to hotwire your vehicle.
To do so would make that information way too easy for unscrupulous people to steal these cars.

My recommendation?
Take the VIN # to the nearest dealer. They should be able to provide you with a key code and you can get a new (and spare) key cut.

I removed my ignition switch on my 1998 f150 then reinstalled it alarm sounds and wont crank

Use the key to unlock the door. It sounds goofy, but your truck needs to have the door unlocked with the key so that it knows you're not trying to hotwire the vehicle.

Fuel pump is good car wont run i hot wired pump car starts will it hurt run car

ABSOLUTELY it will hurt the car!!! "Hotwiring" ANYTHING in a computer-controlled vehicle is a serious risk! If the fuel pump circuits are not working, there is a reason for it. You may have possible wiring harness damage causing the initial problem. Hotwiring the circuit could potentially smoke some high-dollar computer equipment or at worst, can burn your entire vehicle to the ground. You could be sending voltage not only to the fuel pump, but also to the place where the wiring harness is possibly damaged. Also, your fuel pump system is not designed to run at all times. The system is designed to turn the fuel pump on for just a couple seconds to "prime" the fuel rails, then shuts the fuel pump off until engine RPM has reached a specified set point. Failure of this safety feature can cause your exhaust to losd-up with fuel and cause an explosion. It is also designed to shut off in the event of any collision that would be bad enough to deploy the air bags - to prevent fuel spraying everywhere in the event of an accident. Hotwiring would defeat this extremely important safety feature. This would not only affect YOU in the event of an accident, but also anyone else that tried to HELP you or possibly anyone in the OTHER vehicle involved. Keep in mind that you are playing with gasoline - AND electrical circuits by doing this. (not a good combination) One ounce of gasoline has approximately the same potential energy as 100 pounds of TNT! I highly recommend getting the problem PROPERLY diagnosed and repaired!

My Electic Front Drivers set Will not go Back and Forth It ia a 1991 Buick La Sabre

First you'll need to determine if the fuse and / or relay is good. If so, then check the seat switch by ' hotwiring ' ( running a positive wire from the battery to the positive side of the switch ) . if the hotwire worked, your switch is bad - if not then you may have a bad seat motor or corroded connection. You may need to remove the seat from the vehicle to further test connections and / or run your hotwire to the positive side of the motor, which may be difficult at best. I'd check the fuses first, then relay, the call your local shop since everything else can get complicated.
Good luck!
