Jim pop off the dash trim and. Then pull the tilt steering tab straight off. It's kinda hard but it pulls off. Next unscrew the Torx bits underside of steering column and remove the cover bottom. Look at bottom of shifter lever you will see an orange wire it usually breaks right there. Take it out of the clamp and soldier it back together. Don't clamp it back down it makes the wire too tight. Put it all back together.

SOURCE: automatic transmission is stuck in 2nd gear (limp mode)

most newer vehicles  have transmission control modules,that go to a default of 2nd or 3rd gear when they go bad!  I had a 91 plymouth stuck in 3rd gear because of this module! could be your problem!    when mine went out, it smelled like something electrical burned inside the the passenger cabin! I would check all the electrical connections on the transmission first    good luck

SOURCE: transmission tow/haul mode

Hi, the problem is when you are tilting the steering wheel all the way up it's putting to much tenstion on the wires that come outof your shifter that run to the tow/haul button. i am 99% sure your wires are disconected. rewire them and add some extra wire so next time there will be more slack in your wires.

My shifter handle goes all the way down but only hit N dose not go Drive or 3 2 1 gears


Are you pressing the brake pedal when you switch gears? If you are, there might be a problem with the transmission. Go to your car dealer using a different car and tell them to look at it. Or just use a tow truck and tow it to a mechanic.

03 suzuki will shift in to all gears but won't move


oops didnt read how to tow that suzuki,oops.
how far you go , over 200 miles>?
is it an auto or stick?

flat towed??
dolly towed,?
towed from front or rear.?
we cant guess any of that and are all covered in the operators guide.
clear as a bell too.

towing cars , most will damage the rear transmission bearing.
because its dry when engine not running.
so the rules are very strict. due to that hard fact.
soon as you tow anything , thing, "rear bearings."
or if Fwd car, same on front.
most cars are not designed to be towed and some only short distances.

I have a 2001 Chevy Silverado 2500 HD. The tow/haul light turns on (yellow) and will not turn off. Is this a problem?


It is if, it is locking out your overdrive. Check to see if it shifts into all the gears your transmission has... ie. 5 speed = 4 shifts.

2004 Chevy Trailblazer Gear Shifter Moves But Will NOT shift into gear ..Came home from shopping put her in park.. Then couple hours later cranked up to go again, shifter moves loosely... The car is in...


The end of the shift cable has broken, there is a plastic ring at the transmission end of the cable that breaks. You will need to have it towed to the mechanic.

02 gmc allison tran. wont go into tow-haul mode


THERE HAVE BEEN ALOT OF PLOBLEMS WITH THE SHIFTER HANDLE/SWITCH. THE BEST WAY TO VERIFY CONCERN IS USE A DIAG. SCANNER & VIEW TRANSMISSION DATA DISPLAY WHILE ENGINE RUNNING. THE SWITCH IN THE SHIFTER IS FAULTY. IF YOU SEE NO INPUT CHANGE WHILE DEPRESSING SWITCH THIS IS YOUR CONCERN.
