I'm thinking this is an interior problem. Dirt ETC.. can build up around the shifter, you can pop the panel below the shifter up with a screwdriver. Clean this panel up and lube up the linkage below and you should be good to go.

05 automatic V6 mustang has a stiff shifter and is hard to put from park to other gears and vice versa. What is its problem and how do I fix it?


The shifting cables can go bad and freeze up. If your mechanically inclined you can set emergency parking brake then disconnect cable on the side of your transmission and see how hard it is to shift. If stiff remove center console and disconnect cable from shifter. Then it should move freely because the frozen cable isn't connected. Replace bad cable or what ever part may have been binding.

1991 Honda Civic DX Why am I able to push the car with automatic transmission while it's in park? The car won't start and run, either.


If the car rolls with the shifter in the park position and the starter will not engage the engine than the transmission is not in park. This could be caused by a bad shift cable. In order to confirm this you will need to find the area where the shift cable attaches to the transmission. While a helper runs the shifter through the gears check the linkage at the transmission to see if it is moving. If the linkage is not moving that there is a problem with the shift cable or the shifter. Some disassembly of the center council may be necessary to gain access to the area where the shift cable attaches to the shifter to see if it is still attached to the shifter. If it is and the shifter is moving the cable than the cable will need to be replaced. If the cable is moving the linkage at the trans than there is probably something wrong internally inside of the transmission. If you have any questions or need further help I will be happy to do what I can!

My shifter wont shift from park to drive brake lights work 94 civic


You may have a bad switch (Ford calls it a brake shift interlock not sure the exact term Honda uses) but check all your fuses. Below I gave you a picture and instructions on how to bypass the interlock switch until you can get the repair done or replace the bad fuse. I hope this helps and good luck.

I have a 97 Honda Civic EX auto, when I try to shift from park to reverse or park to drive it is very difficult and hard to shift and the lights do not light up on the console to indicate what gear you are...


indications from your description is that the shifter ( cable or mechanical ) is loose or out of adjustment and is jamming on the light position switch
If it cable , then have it checked out as with a 1997 model , there is a good chance that the cable is fraying or jamming and is the cause of the problems
if it is all mechanical linkage , then check for worn out bushes or rubber sections
you state that when gear it drives perfectly so by that statement , there is no transmission problems just selecting problems

Would need more info on the heat/ac problem. But on the shifting problem check under the hood and make sure when the shifter is moved the linkage moves. If not the shift cable is most likely the problem, but check at the shifter to make sure.
