Re: broken steering collumn 95 buick lesabre
Okay well here is your most likely problem,the nuetral safety switch it's located on the transaxle(transmission where the shift linkage comes in)you can test this to make sure its working but it will require conituity tester,a parts store might also test it for free,this is a $100+ dollar switch,so if needs to be replaced check with the local salvage yards to see if you can get one used.

Could it be coming from the dash??? That car might be old enough to have a speedo cable. Another thought, I know some Caddys that had an automatic park brake release. You had to put it in gear for the Park brake to release. Hope that helps.
First remove bolt that attaches to the steering box it may have a rubber boot over it then undo shift linkage under the dash I can remember if there's 2 or four bolts take them off column drops down unhook electrical and pull out hope this helps
if you have to push the brake to move it out of park there is (for lack of the proper name) a thing by the shifter you can remove and it won't bother anything or your brake pads need to be replaced for the electrical i would try spraying compressed air or another electrical cleaner in the crcracks to remove the dirt
1. There may be a vacuum leak anywhere under the hood.
2. The vacuum governor mounted on the transmission is broken (has a ruptured diaphragm). Easy to replace, has one bolt and a small (one inch) locking plate.
3. Replacement at AutoZone is around $12~~20.
A reason for hard shifting could be a problem with many things with various degrees of seriousness. It could be your ATF( automatic transmission fluid) is low or broken down and old. This would cause the hardness and the reason for stop and go traffic effecting it. Another possibility is your transmission is just shot, and the timing gears inside are worn and not properly shifting at the correct RPM causing a **** during shifting.
no you should not have to there a 2 covers that surround the collumn then you should be able to change out the cruise. Especially on newer cars James be careful on these believe it or not everything is controlled by those wires in the collumn. If you need any more go to collisionrepairadvice.com
You need to have the linkage adjusted. Over time, the linkage can go out of adjustment. If this is a column shift car the mechanical linkage may have shifted from hitting a bump or such. Hope this helps, let me know if I may be of further assistance.
Simple fix. The shift indicator cable attaches to the shift bowl at the bottom of the steering column. It just clips on the edge of it and can be slid around to adjust. You may have to pull the gear shift down to first gear to see it.
