SOUNDS LIKE YOUR SHIFT CABLE IS BROKEN TAKE YOUR CENTER CONSLE APART BY THE SHIFTER AND YOU WILL SEE A CABLE THAT IS CONNECTED TO YOUR SHIFTER MOVE YOUR SHIFTER BACK AND FORTH AND YOU SHOULD SEE YOUR PROBLEM.

Where is the power control module on a 1997 ford escort wagon?


PCM / ECU is located in front of the center console.
Remove center console: 
Remove plastic retaining plugs on each side of front of console use a very small screwdriverto lift the center plug.
Move front seats all the way forwarding and remove two back screws on the back part of the console. 
Lift up the front end of the rear part of console and remove two screws that hold down the front part of console, rear of shifter.
Before you can remove the front part of the console the gear shifter must be moved from out of park position, if your car is an automatic. Note: If the battery is disconnected you will need to use the emergency access portin the top of the console. Remove a small cover plug and insert a small screwdriver or ink peninto the hold to release the shift lever out of park. With the shift lever out of the way the console can be removed.

94 camaro z28 automatic shifte was stiff jerked it to first gear like a idiot now stuck in first starts up in first still got underneath I can change gears w transmission lever but shift cable in park only...


If the car starts in first, it sounds like you have a problem with the lock cable. There should be a cable from steering column to shifter that prevents the shifter from moving out of park.

Remove the center console and examine the cables. Disconnect the one from the steering column and see if that frees up the shifter. If it does, you will need to find out what is jamming the steering column. Check the cable for frays 1st. Then make sure you didn't drop something down the center console, last look at the cable connection behind the ignition key.... when you are poking around the steering column, disconnect the battery and let is sit for a few minutes or you risk the air-bags blowing up in your face.

A long time ago, I melted a gear shift cable when I didn't have a good ground on the engine block. When the car started, the power when through the shifter cable and it must have gone red hot and melted.

How do i remove the center console from a 1997 thunderbird


CENTER CONSOLE- Disconnect the battery cables to disable air bag. Wait two minutes before working around steering column, instrument panel or impact sensors. 1. Open console lid and remove the two screws you see toward the front. 2. remove the shift lever knob 3. Rotate the rear of the panel forward, disconnect the electrical connectors, then detach the clips at the front edge by pulling upward. Now panel is free to remove it.

Automatic shift lever won't shift the truck into gear we can shift it manually underneath the truck into gear but the lever isn't shifting the linkage


the linkage has slipped and is not in the notch on the shift lever so slide he shift lever into place then tighten the bolt down so it will hold the shifter on the trasnmisson, this is caused by a loose nut on the shifter nut.
