Unlees you have had a loss of gear oil this is unusual.
I would first remove the linkage on the gearbox and see i i could manually move the shifter. Obviously, if i could, then the fault is in the shift rods or lever.
If the gear shift on the bix is jammed, the box will gave to come out for strip down and inspect or get another gearbox.
Cheers

SOURCE: The gear shift get's stuck

Could be the shifter interlock switch - your car requires that the brake pedal is pressed before it can come out of park. If that switch is not working, the car won't ever know you're pressing the brake, and won't let the car out of park.

Shifter is in neutral. Why is manual transmission stuck in 3rd gear?


Internal transmission breakage has stuck the thing in 3rd gear. Stalls when putting in other gears because transmission is then being put into 2 gears at once. Better look into getting another transmission of having the current unit overhauled and repaired.

Standard stuck in 3rd gear


Are you saying you can not move shifter while driving or it will not shift out of 3rd gear? If just the fact it will not from 3rd gear sounds like it could be in safe mode. Is check engine light on?

Transmissin won't shift acts like it's stuck in third gear.


In some models the engineers default the tranny to be stuck in the 3rd gear if something is wrong because 3rd gear is considered an "all-purpose" gear. It will allow your car to begin to move from a dead stop, and will also allow it to maintain a highway speed without ruining your tranny or engine.

In my own personal experience, I have had a car that was stuck in 3rd gear. The problem turned out to be the electrical harnesses leading from the TCU to the tranny itself. The harness would pull itself out.

I would double, triple, and quadruple check all the electrical connections dealing with the transmission. It may be as simple as a wire that got pulled out of the harness and could be shorted out; which can cause your problem.

In any case, make sure you protect your tranny ID. Its a sweet body your driving. You don't want to be out there exposed on the superhighway going only in 3rd gear, with no other choices.

Mitsibishi colt 97 stuck in 1st gear


Your link broke off. What might have happened is the car got stuck in 1st, and when you shifted to second, the link broke. Not too clued up on your car, but you probably need to drop the gearbox. On some cars you can take out the shifter without having to drop the box and still see if the link is broken. Good luck
