Automatic or manual? If its automatic, there should be a light behind the dash that illuminates your gearing possition.

    no that is not normal, if all other lamps on the dimmer work? yes, then the lamp is bad, or the wires to it are BAD.

Begin with, well that depends on tranny option or trim or other options.
if the lamp is bad , its bad.
if the dimmer is dimmed they all dim, so no that.
that leaves the fuse or wires bad. or lamp.
no never there
GM has a build sheet in car, but ford/ I dont know,
the drawings are all online, alldata.com

SOURCE: the gear shift handle is broken

i would try a local junkyard. many models are interchangable. that small part at a dealer would want you to buy the whole assembly.
cougar or t-bird should work

SOURCE: wont shift gears.

Look under the dash at the switch by your brake pedal. This switch must work for the gearshift to come out of Park. It is also the reason your brake lights do not work.

There is an electric lockout on the gearshift and the power comes from the brake light switch. This is how the van knows you have your foot on the brake.
The switch may be broke or simply loose and not making contact.

1998 chev S10 automatic transmission want shift out of 2nd gear


You have either no power to the transmission solenoids, or you have a problem with the shift solenoids. Check fuses first. Could just be a power supply issue. Then, move on to changing the transmission shift solenoids. If you remove the transmission oil pan, and the fluid is dark brown and smells horrible, it is probably a burnt up transmission.

Cannot get gears untill engine is warm


assuming fluid is full to cold level is the color light red/pink ? If dark grungy and is same when hot - will need changing . GM trans oil loses its thickness - lubrication qualities due to heat / age etc. Ergo unwilling to engage gear / hold gear . Most cars have shift interlock meaning foot must depress brake too move gear shift = Nuetral safety switch receives pressure from brake pedal if it fails to recognize or is worn then trans will not want engage gear .

Gear shift stuck in park


there is a u shaped clip that holds handle on stem, pull that and then pull handle off and then push down on the white stick that is in center of shifter and see if it can move out of park then, also make sure your foot is on brake ! if that that does'nt work then there is a little solenoid down by shifter that has to move when you put foot on brake so's that it will let you shift it (safety device) it may be bad or bad connection.

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.

GEAR SHIFT STUCK IN PARK HAVE NO BRAKE LIGHTS


check the fuses as if the brake light fuse is blown it won`t allow the shifter to move out of park.it has a shift interlock system so the gear shift won`t accidentally be moved out of park by mistake.

Are shift settings supposed to light up? Is it a


Yes, they are supposed to light up. I believe that's on the same fuse as the instrument cluster, so if that lights up don't worry about the fuse. It's probably just a burnt out bulb. To replace, remove the knob - 2 screws, one in the front one on the rh side lift up, use thread lock to install, remove the floor console - seats forward remove one screw each side in the back, pull up to remove the parking brake console, seats rearward remove 2 screws from shift console, 2 pushpins each side, remove cupholders, lift and remove console. four screws to remove dial bezel then you'll see the connector for the lamp (the parking brake handle and gear selector will have to be moved to different positions to move console)

My Backup light are not working on my 98 Pontica Grand Prix.


First check for power at the light sockets and make sure they are properly grounded. The neutral start switch should also be the backup light switch (located on the transmission at the shift lever). If vehicle is starting in the correct shift positions, likely it is adjusted properly. However, have someone watch the backup lights and move shift lever through the gears. if while moving lever lights flash, switch may be slightly out of adjustment. Pink or dark blue wire should be power supply to switch, light green should send power to lights.This is powered by a 15a fuse on the fuse panel.

My 2003 Mercury Mountaineer Gear Shift is stuck.


See if u have brake lights. This is what energizes the shifter solenoid. There are 2 fuses u can check both are in the under dash fuse panel. Fuse 23 (15amp) and fuse 26 (7.5amp).
To get it out of park turn igntion switch on stopping just short of engerizing the electronics then u should be able to get it out of park and into neutral.

Gear Shift Handle


It might just be a fuse. Check to see if your brake lights light up when you step on the brake with the key on. If not it is probably just a fuse.

Nissan Sentra shifter lamp replacement


Transmission shift indicator light on center console.
First
make sure the fuse is good.
If the fuse is good then remove the screws holding the center console cover. You will need a long and short phillip screwdriver. Look for screws in the cup holder, under the handbrake handle and where the console runs under the dash. You may have to move seats forward/backward to reach the screws. When you attempt to raise the console cover you will notice you overlook a screws. Remove them also. You may be able to reach the bulb without removing the gear shift handle. DO NOT TOUCH any other electronics you see. The AIRBAG ACTUATOR is located here also. Replace bulb. Test before reassembly. Good Saturday morning project.
