It sounds like the gear selector module is going out. Other than replacing it I don't have much for you. I would take it to a shop you trust and have them run the codes to see if your getting a faulty signal code.

Sorry I can't help more.

Shifter is locked in park on a 2002 bravada that sayes on dash its in reverse


PRND321 Display
The instrument panel cluster (IPC) displays the selected gear position as determined by the engine control module (ECM). The IPC - instrument panel cluster receives a serial data message from the ECM indicating the gear position. The PRND321 display blanks if:
?€¢
The ECM detects a malfunction in the transmission range switch circuit.


?€¢
The IPC detects a loss of serial data communications with the ECM. The automatic transmission shift lock control system is a safety device that prevents an inadvertent shift out of PARK when the engine is running. The driver must press the brake pedal before moving the shift lever out of the PARK position. The system consists of the following components:
?€¢
The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid


?€¢
The automatic transmission shift lock control switch

With the ignition in the ON position, voltage is supplied to automatic transmission shift lock control switch. Voltage flows through the normally closed contacts of the automatic transmission shift lock control switch to the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. The automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid is permanently grounded. This energizes the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid causing the transmission shift lever to be physically locked in the PARK position. When the brake pedal is pressed the contacts in the automatic transmission shift lock control switch open, de-energizing the automatic transmission shift lock control solenoid. This allows the shift lever to be move out of the PARK position.
The transmission range (TR) switch is part of the park/neutral position (PNP) and backup lamp switch assembly, which is externally mounted on the transmission manual shaft. The TR switch contains four internal switches that indicate the transmission gear range selector lever position. The PCM supplies ignition voltage to each switch circuit. As the gear range selector lever is moved, the state of each switch may change, causing the circuit to open or close. An open circuit or switch indicates a high voltage signal. A closed circuit or switch indicates a low voltage signal. The PCM detects the selected gear range by deciphering the combination of the voltage signals. The PCM compares the actual voltage combination of the switch signals to a TR switch combination chart stored in memory.
You need a Tech2 scan tool to diagnose this problem ! possible range sensor !

Gear shifting panel light


I am assuming that your shift lever is on the steering column. Either the bulb for indicator has burned out or the shift indicator switch on the transmission has failed. There are 3 different engine options for this truck and 3 different transmissions. I would need to know which engine and transmission your truck has, to give better info. FYI, you have to remove the instrument cluster to replace the bulb, assuming that is the problem.

How do you replace the shift solenoidon a 2002 volvo s80 t6


actually, it's starting out in hi gear. The sensor is inside the trans housing, so it's a lot of work to lower the sub frame with engine and trans attached. An EODB that reads and resets the TCM will allow you to drive it. Just don't shift to "D", and it will run fine; you just won't have overdrive (so your mpg will suffer).

The gear selection lamp, inside the instrument panel, does not reflect the actual gear I am in. It jumps around, depending upon which gear I select. It is rarely accurate. I know what gear I am in...


Replace your Transmission Range Sensor (Also called "Neutral Safety Switch") It is located on top of the transmission housing under the shift lever where the shift cable hooks up.

1999 Volvo S80 stuck in park


Hi there this sounds like a common fault it also happens on xc70 xc90 an new s80 if you remove the suround from the gear selector you should be able to see the gear linkage cable too the left hand side towards the back of the cable there is a push fit lock nut it is yellow and plastic which locks cable into position it sounds as though the push nut is not gripping the cable if you gently prise open the yellow part to the left of th car it should open the cable is spring loaded so it will stay in position after releaseing the nut push the nut as far forward as it will go so it moves forward on the cable once you have done this push the yellow push nut back in to secure the cable then you should be able to use your car again but what i would sugest is to get it replaced as its started to wear and will only happen again at a later date hope this helps tony.t

I have the check engine light on 2day and show is the code p1709 pnp sw out of range how do i fix this ford f150 v6 1999 thanks


To Adjust Sensor:

  1. turn ignition switch to On, put shift lever in reverse and verify that the back up lights come on.
  2. If they do, but the engine can’t be started in Park or Neutral, or it can be started in any other gear besides Park or Neutral, the sensor is probably defective.
  3. If the lights do not come on, disconnect the shift cable from the manual lever, loosen the bolts on the sensor and move sensor slightly until the back-up lights come on, tighten bolts 62-89 in lbs for the 4R70W, 71-88 in lbs for the E4OD and 4R100.
  4. If you can’t get the back up lights to come on by moving the sensor, and the lights are good then the sensor is probably bad
If the sensor is bad replace and reset check engine light. Hope this helps, let me know

you need to adjust the shift linkage and neutral - park safety switch.
Cable Adjustment —Shift Indicator
  1. Remove the upper instrument panel steering column cover (04459); refer to Section 501-12 .
  1. Place the gearshift lever in the (D) position.
    • Rotate the gearshift lever clockwise until it bottoms out (first gear), then rotate two detents counterclockwise ((D) position).
  1. Hang a 3.6 kg (8 lb) weight on the gearshift lever.
  1. Center the pointer in the middle of the (D) position.
    • Rotate the thumbwheel located on the bottom of the steering column to adjust the pointer.
  1. Remove the 3.6 kg (8 lb) weight.
  1. Carefully move the gearshift lever from detent to detent and compare with the transmission settings.
    • Readjust if necessary.
  1. Install the upper instrument panel steering column cover; refer to Section 501-12 .

Digital Transmission Range Sensor
The digital transmission range (TR) sensor is located on the outside of the transmission at the manual lever. The digital TR sensor completes the start circuit in Park and Neutral, the back-up lamp circuit in Reverse and the neutral sense circuit (4x4 only) in Neutral. The digital TR sensor also opens and closes a set of four switches that are monitored by the PCM to determine the position of the manual lever (P, R, N, D, 2, 1).

Volvo s80 t6 shifting problem


The cheap fix: Speed sensor connected to the Transmission Control Module (TCM). That screws up the engine control module and could throw you into limp home mode. Expensive fix: Transmission control module. Start with the speed sensor. Suggest that to your mechanic and get a second opinion before changing out the TCM. It's a simple plug and swap, but the module is expensive. I bought a spare on Ebay for my Volvo for $10. The TCU, I believe, lives under the right front kick panel, at least that's where it is on my 740.

"Hold" Button on console beside gear shift - what's it's purpose - we don't know!


Owner's Manual says "You can select this mode to drive with some characteristics of a manual transmission. With the HOLD mode turned on, the automatic transmission will stay in a specific gear range.

Press the HOLD button on the shift lever to turn on the HOLD mode.

While on, the HOLD indicator light on the instrument panel will light up..."

The button is on the console, next to the shift lever, and the HOLD indicator light is in the lower left hand corner of the instrument panel
