Shifter wont shift the pickup into gear

The pickup is an automatic. If you put some weight behind it you can get the knob to move a little but it will never shift it into gear.

Let's start with the basics. Key has to be in the ignition and ignition turned to the run postion. Battery has to be charged up. Brake pedal has to be depressed so the shifter will unlock, . If the shifter will not move, it could be several things. A faulty shifter unlock cylinder or wirng problem. A binding shiter cable or shift lever problem at transmission, or a problem with the shifter assembly on the steering column.

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.

My gear shifts way to the right how would i fix that.


Is your truck an automatic? If your talking your shifter on your column, there is a lil, I would call it a wheel behind your dash up near where your shifter goes in. If you look up behind there, there will be a little wire that runs from behind your dash and at some point through a plastic piece with a wheel/knob in it. If your turn that knob it will change where your shifter reads depending on the direction you turn it. Hope that helps you out

Having a hard time putting my car in gear. It has to warmm up in order to engage the button on the shifter to put the car in gear.


The shifter knob that houses the button may be worn out or the shifter mechanism may need to be lubricated. You can try spraying a little WD-40 around the shift button and into the shift knob using the straw provided with the spray can.
To lubricate the shifter, the shift knob will have to be removed and the shift plate removed to gain access to the shifter mechanism.
Good luck.

Removing an automatic gear shift out of a sc400


position the shifter into the drive position, pull down on the plastic trim directly underneath the leather portion of the shifter. theres two phillips head screws behind that. remove the shifter knob and the plastic piece. the trim will pop out if you pull directly upwards, disconnect the heated seats(if you have them) and the trac button. hope that helps.
