It's a fuse issue. Part of the shift interlock system.

If the radio is also not working, it's the cigarette lighter fuse. This one fuse controls the cigarette lighter, the radio, and the shift interlock system. It's in the kick panel fuse box on the driver's side.

If it's not that fuse, it's the "Stop" fuse in the same panel. Both blown fuses create the same behavior.

Easy fix! Don't bother with a mechanic. If the fuse continues to blow, take it to be checked.

Good luck.

The
shifter needs to be inspected. Its quite possible that The
shifter assembly is got misaligned, it has to be open and realign.








There
are many other possibilities. But if it was working right up till now and
suddenly this shifting problem occurred then its shifter
assembly alignment issue.




Also
i suggest you to refer these gear shift issues, which are mostly noticed. These
are direct links with appropriate solutions to

2000 sable- can't shift out of park. shifter glides and needle on dash moves there's no gears shifting. is the transmission blown?


Not likely a blown transmission. More of a shifter cable issue. There is an adjustment nut on the ****** end. It could be loose or missing. If the nut is fine you have a broken cable.

2000 Mazda MPV Starts & runs won't go out of Park Shifter handle moves won't change gears??


I had this issue in the past. All I did was to replace the brake switch. This part is located behind the brake pedal. Btw, if you this run into this issue again in the future, you can always push this switch with your finger and it's located on top of your steering wheel enclosure, this will disengage the shifter.there is a small rectangle shape cover that you need to remove first.

Mazda mpv 2000 no work reverse


Transmissions have a series of clutch plates, friction plates,bands,gears and solenoids located inside the transmission. As the vehicle moves forward, these plates operate similar to a clutch on a manual transmission, but using fluid pressure and momentum to do so. Usually these go bad due to lack of proper service intervals. If the fluid is not changed at recommended intervals, it breaks down, similar to engine oil,and causes the transmission to get hot and burn up these clutch plates and bands. Therefore you will get certain gears that will fail to engage. In your case, the reverse.

Mazda 2000 mpv will not start in park but will start in neutral why?


The most likely cause is a bad neutral safety switch. It should be on top of the transmission. Follow the shifter cable through the firewall and the switch will be near the end of the cable

The easiest thing to check first is the related fuse. If it is burnt, the box around the D of drive on the display will not show up and the gear will not shift.

Car wont move when transmission is in drive


With the car NOT running and the wheels BLOCKED on both sides of the wheel have someone look for a rod that connects to the transmission. If you move the shifter as someone looks it may be more obvious. See if that rod is still connected to the transmission. If it is all electronic you may have more serious problems and a transmission repairman will need to me involved.
