Hi, I have a Chev Metro 2000 Automatic that I am trying to pass the Calif Smog test. It passed to emission Test. It failed for (OBO Code)P0705 Trans Range Sensor Malfunction (PRNDL Input). The Service...

There is a diagnostic route on the PO705 code,which involves hooking up a scan tool,and verifying sensor functions.It can also involve checking continuity of the circuit,and PCM commands.The majority of the time,replacing the sensor in question resolves the problem,but after replacement,the sensor needs adjusting to be correctly aligned,to give the correct reading in each gear range.If replacing the sensor does not repair the problem,then it's down to checking the wires involved in the circuit for continuity.If the wires check out OK,then it's going to be checking the PCM (computer) for proper commands and outputs.Resolving the code will likely repair the problem you are having getting the vehicle out of Park.The "stuck in Park" problem has to do with the shift interlock,where you have to press the brake pedal down to disengage the shifter.It is possible you have two separate problems,but repair the PO705 code first,and see what happens with the interlock problem.The PO705 HAS to be repaired to pass inspection anyways.I guess i didnt explain,but the PRNDL switch is the sensor that tells the vehicle computer (PCM) which gear the trans is in..Park,Reverse,Neutral,Drive,Low (PRNDL).Good luck.

26002487-w0jffanovav232xjqcbliw5g-1-0.gif Don't think you need take shifter knob off . Just PRNDL trim plate an upper console plate . They should just pull up , use plastic trim tool to get it so you can get your fingers under an pull up carefully .

Starter will not engage

check all fuses. there are many for this circuit.
fuse 2 and 20 must be good.

no ! this is not and ASD function.
the starter is totally independent, (the EFI does not run the starter)

my wild guess is this as A/T slush pump car.
so as such has the PRNDL switch.
even IMMO unhappy allows cranking but cuts fuel and spark. via ASD

the Key switch sends 12vdc to the PRNDL
you try park or neutral.
you wiggle it, omg it cranks. PRNDL death deal (1million served)
this car has a starter RELAY, simple
12v to 2 pins, key on.
the PRNDL grounds the coil the relay closes, and the output 12v
goes to the starter solenoid.
there is no need to guess the FSM is here, read starting and schematics. bingo

see 8w-21-1 , the simple path there.

if the fuses are good
and you have 12vdc across the relay coil the PRNDL is good.
if the 12v is missing the PRNDL is bad.
assumes the ground to the PRNDL i good.

see 8 ways to crank here ,tricks, M/T rule on cranks....2 ways.

i just hot wire the starter solenoid and that cuts the problem in half
at the get go.... no fiddling about.
it already failed jump starts. and battery is good and charged, so..
hot wire it. grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, ok starter is good.
but key line is dead.. 1/2 the work is gone. fail path know.

How to fix a prndl problem on my Lincoln navigator

The transmission in your Navigator is a ZF 6-speed(german transmission company) and the PRNDL sensor is internal.The transmission should not have to be removed to service the part , but the valve body of the transmission will need to be and this is not a job for a novice.The truck will need to be towed to a dealer or capable repair shop and have the switch diagnosed and a repair preformed.Good Luck!

I have a 1989 Plymouth horizon it will not crank. I have replaced the starter,battery and starter relay. I have checked all the fuses and I checked the prndl switch. What should I do now?

Do you have 12v at the prndl switch with the ignition in the start position? If you do do you have 12v coming out of the prndl switch to the starter relay? If you do the relay should click.
