If it won't shift from park my first question would be how do you get it Into neutral? Sounds like you may have a gear selector sensor issue .

Sounds like you have lost the transmission. There are bands that clamp down to lock the transmission into the gear you want. They are controlled by a hydrolic unit located in the trans. The first thing I would do is have a shop pull the trans oil pan and see if it is full of chips of metal. If so you definately have a problem. At the same time they can look at the bands and see if one of them is broken. another cause would be that metal has gotten into the hydrolic valve body and frozen the drive band portion so it will not function. You may also get lucky and have it be an internal adjustment of the drive band. Good Luck, RAC

Why do I have to put gear in neutral when it won,t start in park?


The neutral switch is loose or needs adjusting. Sometimes you can hold the shift lever hard in the park position and it will start.

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.

Mazda starter switch in park Car starts in neutral, but won't turn the starter in park. Battery is fine, its a1999 6cyl with automatic. Intermitent problem


You need to replace and adjust your transmission range sensor switch. (also known as neutral safety switch) It is located under the air cleaner ducting on the top of the transmission under the lever where the shifter cable attaches.

The truck will not shift into park all the way i shut it off and got the key out now it wont start the starter is not turning over at all as if it were in gear.


There is a safety switch that disables the starter unless the trans is in Park or Neutral. If it is not fully in Park, that may not be activated. Try putting it in Neutral, you may be able to start it there. But you also need to find out why it won't shift fully into Park. Maybe the linkage is binding, or maybe it is just misadjusted.
