Jeep wrangler 2005 automatic floor gear shifter is loose won't engage stuck in park


try pushing the knob down onto the shifter a little bit then try and shift. Sometimes if that knob is raised even a little bit it will be locked in park. Can't be 100% sure without seein it but worth a shot. Hope that helps you.

How do i replace/remove the shift lever cover on an automatic 2005 acura tl? It got sticky and now doesn shift into gear well.


All cars have this small opening on the shifter gate. It is always on the left side of the shifter when the shifter is on PARK. Pry that open and insert the car key. That should override the safety switch and let you shift the car off PARK.

My 2005 Altima is stuck in park. Automatic transmission, low miles starts right up and steering wheel is not locked. Help please!!!

your owner's manual will tell you how to over-ride the shift lock. ususally there is a hole covered by a plastic piece, next to the shifter. pop out the cover and push the button to shift. The shifter will lock back up in park until you fix the problem. You may want to set the parking brake and use neutral when you park the car instead of " Park". That way you will not have to push the release button-it will eventually break.

make sure your brake lights work; as the shift lock is powered by the brake light fuse-replace as needed.

2005 XC90 shifter is locked - can only shift between drive an neutral, can't put into park when i come to a complete stop. the key is also locked in the ignition


check the button that you push in on your shifter. will the shift button not go all the way back into the shifter like normal. can you pull it out toward the dash? be easy when doing so to keep from breaking it. something has broken inside the shifter and allows the button to come out too far. try sticking ur finger in the shifter behind the button and realign the button. the button should go all the way into the shifter when it is aligned. it's only a temporary fix but will get you home.

Gear shift is locked. we can only shift the car


The automatic transmissions on these vehicles are known to die early in the life of the car and Volvo is well aware that the vehicle has a dud auto transmission. The symptoms you have mentioned are an indication that the transmission has had it. It's basically just running in limp mode now.

You don't say what mileage this vehicle has clocked up but even low mileage vehicles have had to have the entire transmission replaced due to failures like yours. You also, no doubt, have a transmission alert showing on the dash.

The bad news is that a replacement automatic transmission will now be necessary and this will be costly. Even then, with these cars, you could experience another transmission failure after just another 30000 miles or so of driving.

UPON STARTING THE VEHICLE, IT WILL NOT SHIFT OUT OF PARK TO DRIVE OR REVERSE


The vehicle is an automatic I would imagine, There is a switch on the brake pedal that is called a brake lamp switch, that is your problem, that switch runs a shift lock, wich will cause your vehicle to not shift.
