See if one of your brake lights or out. on some cars if the brake light goes out you won,t be able to shift. there is a way to bypass this but you have to call the dealer to find out what it is.

Why does my truck only go into gear sometimes and no brake lights

Year/make/model?? Most probable cause of this would be a defective brake switch as this switch controls the brake lights as well as the shift release solenoid

My mazda demio aegeon 2000 keeps popping out of 5th gear.. also the other gears seem very stiff. what can i do about this sean

Knowing the mileage would be helpful...Set parking brake and make sure the shifter is in neutral..The best way to troubleshoot would be remove the shifter.Cover top of trans with a rag..Ispect the end of the shifter that slides into trans.,also check the shifter for abnormal wobble...many with that problem have a worn shifter..Inspect inside top of trans for abnormal wear also....The trans could have internal damage with high mileage...Also a worn shifter could damage trans....

Car won't shift from neutral to park

replacing transmission?????nonsence!!! i can tell this is an automatic trans setup, not standard. lets start here. put car in PARK and turn key on so the dash comes on. do not start car. step on the brake pedal several times slowly and listen for audible sound coming from the shifter area. you should hear clicking sound everytime yo uhit the brake. that is the shift lock solenoid releasing the mechanism indside of the shifter assembly so you can get the car out of park and into gear. you may have an issue with the shifter assembly it self. if no clicking sound is heard, it will need to be diagnosed fruther. the solenoid can not be purhcsed separatelly. shifter assembly only. start with the listening procedure and let me know.

My suv won't shift gears what can i do?

if the shifter is moving then it is probably your trans. but if the shifter is not moving from the park possition (if it is an automatic) check to see if brake lights are coming on if not check fuse for brake lights,it also controls your shift lock.try turning key to possition before lights come on dash board and moving shifter into nuetral pos. then start car and put into gear give that a try, if it does the shift lock isn`t working.

Changed automatic trans. shift cable now starter wont ingauge to start what chould be the cause.

Look for connector off neutral safety switch, or linkage needs adjustment. Try moving shifter while holding key to start, that should be a good indication if it turns over when in another gear, but be careful and make sure foot is firmly on brake.

Can get all forward gears but can not put it into reverse gear unless the car has been warmed up for ten minutes

The seals inside your transmission are bad and leaking by and they don't start to seal until the tranny fluid warms up and swells the seals. To temporarily fix this problem you can pour some brake fluid into your transmission fluid. This will swell the seal in the transmission and it should start working again. This is only a temporary fix however, eventually you will ned to replace or rebuild your tranny. I used this method on a turbo trans 350 and got a year of service out of it that way before I had to replace the tranny. Just do not put too much brake fluid into the tranny, I would recommend one or two capfuls to start with.

We can not get it to go into gear at all.its pretty much locked up.

If this is an automatic and you mean that it starts but you can not move the shifter to get into gear. The problem could be that you are parked on a hill and need to relieve the pressure on the trans. To do this just push the car up the hill to relieve the pressure and see if it moves. If it does the problem is fixed if not you need to make sure the brake is on and to be safe have someone in the car holding the brake down. Then disconnect the shift cable at the trans and see if you can shift it at the trans. If you can the shift cable is probably bad, if not you have an internal trans problem.

Not going into gear

have you checked your brake lights? are they working? most cars have a safety feature that require a signal from brake lights (by stepping on brake pedal) to activate a relay to disengage the shifter interlock, OR can you move the gear selector into gear, and it just won't move? is it an automatic or stick shift ? If it's an automatic start the car, after it has ran for 5 - 10 minutes check the trans fluid dipstick, it should have fluid level between add / full marks , if not add or remove fluid as necessary. If is a manual trans, it is possible the clutch is bad. need more info on vehicle, how many miles? engine size?
