Question about 1987 Dodge Caravan
I have a 1979 el camino, the shift indicator nevers moves, How do i replace the shift cable??
I just fix the same problem on my 83 el camino today. The indicator is just a plastic pin connected to a wire and uses a small spring to return to park. I took out the dash board pannel in front of the gauges. There are two 7mm screws under the indicator, remove those. Drop indicator down, check to see if the plastic hoop the wire connects to has broken off. If so I connected my wire to the hook on the return spring, every thing works fine now. I had to fix this to get it threw Maryland inspection.

This does not have a cable persay, but a thin nylon string that runs from the indicator needle to the pull clip. If this is on the column shift you will need to remove the steering wheel and turn signal group to expose the string and the little clip that attaches it.
If you have to replace the string try different lengths until you get it right, this is pretty adjustable.
