98 chevy cavalier wont start with key but can start it by shorting out starter turning the key and it does nothing battery good

What you need to find out is at the trans range switch.See if you are getting power at the yellow wire when you turn the key to the run position.This is in slot G at the connector on top of the transmission.This part can be done with the connector unplugged.The next part it has to be plugged in and you have to back probe the purple wire.This is terminal E.If you have standard trans then the colors are the same but the terminals are A and B out of the clutch pedal switch.If you have power going in the yellow but not coming out the purple then replace the trans range switch or clutch pedal switch.If you don`t have power at the yellow wire then replace the ignition switch.Hope this helps.Good luck.

94 dodge intrepid won't start.

Sounds like trans range switch. It is stuck in 2nd because it has a trans code in the tcm. Chrysler calls this (limp-in mode). You need to scan the tcm for codes, It likely has a code for the range switch. Hope this helps. By the way the range switch is also the neutral safety switch for the starter.

P0705 - Trans Range Switch Circuit

Get under the truck and look where the trans shift linkage connects to the trans, there is a post that comes out of the trans, on that post u will see a large switch with multipile wires connected to it, that is the range selector switch, you need to remove the shift arm and a couple of bolts to remove the range switch, it is adjustable, u will see the slots, make sure u put the new switch in the same position as the old one or the truck may not start.

Automatic gearbox won't engage any gear

if the fluid is full then the only thing it can be is either the trans range selector switch, the trans computer or a mechanical failure in the trans, u will need the system tested for any stored trouble codes.
