    I think you have to disconnect the shift cable and remove it with the console.

My mother had the same problem in her 2004 SC Lariat. All you have to do is pop up that center console where the gear shifter is (it's connected by pop in fastners) and push that white default button on the side of the gear shift. After you get tired of doing this for a bout a week, the dealer will try and charge about 6-$700 bucks for this piece. Luckly we got it replaced for nothing...Thank God!!!

I forgot what the dealer said why was it malfunctioning; you might want to try and see if there is a recall on it first before you go and shell out some money. Hope this helps.

I'm actually surfing through yahoo to fix another problem I'm going through...the flashing climate control unit. Yeah, her's went out and I'm trying to fix it instead of going to the dealer.

Center console gear shifter


Yes, most likely. The linkage needs inspection from the shift lever to the transmission. You may have to check under the vehicle for disconnected linkage AND under the cover of the shift lever inside the truck.

94 camaro z28 automatic shifte was stiff jerked it to first gear like a idiot now stuck in first starts up in first still got underneath I can change gears w transmission lever but shift cable in park only...


If the car starts in first, it sounds like you have a problem with the lock cable. There should be a cable from steering column to shifter that prevents the shifter from moving out of park.

Remove the center console and examine the cables. Disconnect the one from the steering column and see if that frees up the shifter. If it does, you will need to find out what is jamming the steering column. Check the cable for frays 1st. Then make sure you didn't drop something down the center console, last look at the cable connection behind the ignition key.... when you are poking around the steering column, disconnect the battery and let is sit for a few minutes or you risk the air-bags blowing up in your face.

A long time ago, I melted a gear shift cable when I didn't have a good ground on the engine block. When the car started, the power when through the shifter cable and it must have gone red hot and melted.

My 1997 Chevy Cavalier automatic transmission is stuck in neutral and the shifter just glides from park, won't engage in any gears.


If the shift handle moves extremely freely (more than normal), changes are that the shift cable has become disconnected from the shift lever. This would explain the indicator not moving out of neutral.
You will need to access the shift lever by removing the console cover. Once you access the shifter check the cable connection to the level. If the cable is broken, it will need replacement. If the cable clip has broken or fallen off, it will need to be reattached.

Unable to put Jeep Liberty in gear. The shifter moves however it moves way to easily. I've removed the center console, did a visual inspection, and nothing looks out of the ordinary. Where should I start...


Have you checked the shift linkage at the transmission to make sure it is moving with the shifter?

Make sure the shift cable is attached to the transmission shift lever.

If the linkage does not move when the shifter is moved, the cable may be broken and need replacement.

Hyundai accent won't shift out of park


You do have your foot on the brake when trying to shift ehh. If so could be a faulty brake to shifter cable.
Remove the center console and check that applying the brake de-activates the lock on the shifter

It wont go into reverse


This is a relatively common problem on these new Chryslre 300s.The failure is in the shifter assembly itself and it will need to be replaced. But for now, to limp around, you can actually still shift the car, you just cannot use the shifter.You will need to remove the center console and find where the shift linkage attaches to the shifter assembly. Remove the linkage and you can manually shift until you replace the shifter assembly.Here is how to remove the center console:

Apply the parking brake.Turn the ignition switch to the On position, apply the service brakes and place the gear selector lever into the Neutral position.Turn the ignition switch to the Off position and release the service brakes.Disconnect and isolate the battery negative cable.Remove the mat (2) from the cubby bin at the front of the floor console.Open the lid of the console rear bin and remove the mat (3) from the rear bin.Remove the two screws (1) that secure the front of the console shifter bezel to the console.Using a trim stick unsnap the console bezel from the console.Remove the shifter bezel from around the gear selector lever.

techmecho_6.gifRemove the three 8 mm bolts (2) from the rear bin that secure the console to the floor panel transmission tunnel.Remove the two screws (3) that secure the front of the console to the instrument panel.Slide the console rearward far enough to access and disconnect the jumper wire connector (4) from the accessory power outlet on the underside of the console.Remove the floor console from the vehicle.-------------- Thankyou.
