SOURCE: transmission acts like its in neutral in every gear checked linkage and transfrcase they are fine

The trans is electronic I suggest having a diagnostic run for the trans. This is only about $50 or so and is well worth it. Saves a lot of trouble shooting time.

Shifting Out of Park Position


hi..

spaclear.gif A simple procedure to prevent being jammed in PARK on a grade:
  1. Do not put it in PARK until, with foot brake applied, you've secured the parking (emergency) brake.


  2. Before releasing the parking brake, apply the foot brake and move the shift lever to NEUTRAL or DRIVE.

Can't get shifter into park


sounds like the parking pawl in the transmission or the manual shift valve is sticking or the manual linkage in the trans is bent. youll have to have a technician drop the trans pan and observe these parts with an assistant shifting the lever in the car back and forth. If the PRNDL light for park is not lit, then the vehicle is not completely in park. You can start and vehicle with the lever in NEUTRAL to get you anywhere.

91 Dodge Spirit stuck in low gear, won't shift out.


Sounds like you need a new shift cable. Remove the shift cable from the linkage on the transmission. If the transmission linkage moves freely back into the park position and the shift lever inside the car still will not move back into park than the cable is bad. If the transmission shift linkage will not move back into park with the cable removed than the transmission will need to be pulled apart to service the shift rod.

Put a new engine in a 1998 isuzu rodeo now it won't start. I thought it was the neutral safety switch because the R was on the dash and it was in park


This could be the problem. If your dash indicator is showing reverse but the transmission is in park it could be the safety switch. I'm not talking about the safety switch in the transmission though. In automatics they put a second switch to kill the starter from engaging. You need to adjust the linkage. If your shifter isn't actually on the column but the indicators are there is a cable that attaches the floor shift to the column and that is adjustable. Put the Floor shifter in Park and turn the column section nearest the dash by hand until you find park. Then adjust the cable length as needed. If all you have is the column shift it is still a cable adjustment. Set the emergency brake, drop the shifter to low 1 and adjust the cable linkage by loosening it on the transmission and manually move it all the way to low 1 then tighten it down then move the shifter to park and repeat teh adjustment process to verify that it is properly aligned. Lock the linkage back down and see if the vehicle will start, if it doesn't move the shifter to neutral and try to start the vehicle if the vehicle starts then check the column shift safety switch at the park position to make sure it is still in place and working. Typically, if the vehicle won't start in Park or Neutral it is more likely to be the Transmission neutral safety switch.

01 ram 1500 4x4, will not go into park, all other gears work fine, It stated after it would not start in park. I shifted into nuetral and it started,drove it from home to the lake, about twelve miles, went...


Disconnect the shift linkage at the transmission and see if you can move the transmission lever into park manually. If you can't, then the internal trans linkage has a problem and pan will need to come down to find out why. If you can do this, then re-connect and adjust the linkage.Check any bushings on linkage pivot cranks...If a bushing is gone it may not be allowing linkage to move all the way to where it needs to go.

Gear Stuck in Parking


linkage jamed up / obstructed ? Try blocking the wheels and having someone IN THE CAR with their foot on the brake , and climb under the hood and disconect the shift linkage. Try moving it by hand. If this works , then the linkage should be looked at , it is probably a cable linkage and can be replaced with a salvage yards for cheap enough.
