2000 vw beetle stuck in park with a yellow light illuminated next to park


THERE IS USUALLY an over ride location you push a small pocket scredriver in there by the shifter on the consol so you can still shift the car until you get it checked out.

Adjust shift indicator 1999 ford ranger


it does sound like a loose transmission shifter

the shift linkage is directly below your auto transmission shifter. simply place in park, undo the bolt joining the shifter to the transmission, push on the transmission shifter at the other end so it clicks fully into park and tighten the bolt up hard. then check for normal operation.

just remember chances are when your pushing down on the shifter to drive that the direction your pushing at the transmission is reversed so park should be towards the rear of the vehicle and drive is towards the front. but may not always be the case. best bet is to get a mate to move the shifter up and down untill you see exactly what is going on, then adjust your linkage to suit.

Car will not come out of park once the car is started


Check the switch under the dash that the brake pedal pushes on. This allows the trans out of park when you step on the brake.

My 86 Cabriolet 5 speed just had the shifting linkage rebuilt by a non vw mechanic using an ebay kit. It's somewhat better but still not right. When the shifter is left loose and pushed forward it goes...


sounds like the linkage is misaligned, vw makes an alignment tool just 4 this problem. mine used to go into the wrong gear, and then I lost reverse I got so pissed off I slammed the shifter to the left and that fixed it, but I cant really recommend that you do this. Best of luck though!

I have a 1999 plymouth grand voyager and the gear shift is sticking in park. Any idea on how to fix this?


Found this maybe it will help your problem:

To shift out of park one or two things must happen. First when you depress the brake a solenoid or cable releases a lock. A defective solenoid, relay or a blown fuse or a broken or improperly adjusted cable can be the cause.

Some console shifters have a bypass. It may look like a place to insert the key or a round plug that will pop out.

The button on console shifters when depressed pushes down on a rod that runs down the shaft. That rod releases a lever designed to keep you from accidentally knocking your shifter from drive to reverse. The button or rod can wear or break.

I'm having trouble moving the shifter


If you're on an incline, that will affect it. Try setting the park brake prior to shifting to park. Also there is a cable/interlok safety system that prevents shifter movement out of park without the brake pedal being depressed, that may need adjustment. Also check under the hood see if the shift selector cable is routed close to the exhaust, it could be melting. And maybe the selector cable needs adjustment.
Good luck with that and let me know if there is anything more I can help with.

Can't get 1993 Linclon Towncar out of park


SHIFTER LOCKED IN PLACE

  1. Remove the instrument panel cover below the steering column, then remove the steering column shrouds to gain access to the brake transmission shift interlock (BTSI) solenoid. The solenoid is part of the interlock cable assembly.
  2. Disconnect the wire connector from the rear of the BTSI solenoid.
  3. Insert the ignition key and turn it to the ON position.
  4. With the brakes applied, try moving the shifter out of the PARK position.
    • If the lever now moves freely in and out of PARK, perform the Circuit Test below.
    • If the shift lever still does not move from the PARK position, remove the BTSI solenoid from the shift lever assembly. If the shift lever now moves freely in and out of the park position, the BTSI solenoid is faulty and the interlock cable must be replaced. If the shift lever still does not move from the park position, the problem is in the shift lever assembly or the ignition interlock cassette

Gear shift rebuilt now my car won't go into park....


generally the first place I would look is under the hood at the linkage on the transmission. it's has a lever with a bracket for the cable.generally the hard shifting is due to a poor adjustment where the lever does not travel as far as it should. first step is to remove the cable from the shifter bar. then move the shifter bar to the park position manually. you will notice you will have to loosen the jam nut for the cable this will allow you to move the cable into the right adjustment. once you have done the adjustment tighten down the jam nut and rehook the cable to the shifter bar you will find that you can shift into park more easily... please rate
