What, is wrong with my suv. It is a automatic. My gear shifter on the steering wheel seems as if it is broke. It moves across the gears but wont go into reverse,drive,neutral,?


it probably did the gear selector has a cable attached to it that runs down to transmission --the cable can become disconnected [plastic clips]due to age wear or damaged by debris look under vehicle and check cable and connector also check the connection at the column

Car runs will move in all gears but does move


This does not seem like a problem. Selector moves, vehicle moves, what is the question?

My 2000 ford ranger will not go in park drives fine


Do you mean the gear selector physically won't move into the Park position or that it does move to indicate it is in Park but will still roll?
I'm sure you know you have to pull the gear selector toward you to get it into Park.

Mercedes-Benz s430 stuck in park what do I do


One of two things will make a vehicle's gear selector stick in park:
  1. Brake pedal interlock circuit problem or brake pedal interlock solenoid failure; or
  2. Problem with the transmission linkage.
FIRST THING TO CHECK: ARE YOUR BRAKE LIGHTS COMING ON WHEN YOU PRESS THE BRAKE PEDAL? If not, your brake light circuit is having an issue, which means that the gear selector interlock solenoid will not release the gear selector. Check the fuse, the brake light switch under the dashboard, and all connectors. If your brake lights are coming on skip that.
SECOND THING TO CHECK: Have you tried manually releasing the interlock override at the gear selector? Check your user manual. It will instruct you to place your key in the slot near the PRNDL indicator on your center console (assuming that your gear selector is not on the steering column), or where to release the selector manually if the selector is on the steering column.
ARE YOU PARKED ON A HILL? Sometimes, parking on a steep incline will cause the park pin to jam into place. If this occurs, you will need to push the vehicle uphill slightly (get a couple of friends to help) so that you may get the vehicle out of Park.
IF you cannot manually release the gear selector using the override, you will need to have your car towed to a garage and have them check the transmission linkage. Sometimes the linkage gets jammed, sometimes the park pin gets jammed, and sometimes magical trolls interfere with our lives covertly... best of luck to you!

Gear shift locked in park


Try setting your parking brake before you put the gear selector in park. Then put it in drive before you take the parking brake off to see it it keeps the load off the transmission when your parking on a steep incline or decline.

1989 Ford Crown Victoria wont go into reverse and drives in nuetral???


Sounds like your linkage slipped out of sequence. On your transmission there is a place where you can manually shift your tansmission through the gears. When you move the selector on the trani it should move the shifter as well. All the way up on selector should be park, then R,N,D so on. If you move the selector all the way up at your shifter reads something else, you need to adjust the linkage and put car in park with selector on trani in park and tighten linkage back up. Run through all the gears and you should be good.

Gear locks when i park on even a slight incline


ALWAYS engage the Parking Brake BEFORE putting car into "Park". When you want to get out of "Park", put your foot on the brake pedal, move gear shifter into desired gear, THEN take down Parking Brake. If you get stuck (gear shifter doesn't move), then try the "rocking" method (recruit 1 or 2 folks to push your car from behind while you try to move gear shifter into desired gear). Good luck!
