SOURCE: 95 mazda protege stuck in drive, wont shift gears, shifter moves but can't go in reverse, need help please

Check the shift cable that goes between the shifter and the transmission. If it's damaged internally it will not move properly and the condition you stated will be a symptom. Easiest way to check it is to disconnect the transmission end of cable and see if it moves freely. If not, replace it.

SOURCE: My gear shift is stuck and will not move from park

do the brake lights work? the system has a lock out that keeps you from moving out of park unless the brake circuit is activated, hence no brake lights no park lock out release, if the brk lights do work u most have a stuck or defective park lock out solenoid.

SOURCE: car will not shift into gear

Sounds like a linkage/cable to me. Disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the shift actuator by hand to see if there is the same things happening. Don't try to do this with the engine running unless someone is holding the brake inside the car.

Gear shifter won't shift into reverse or park


When you "muscled it into neural" you broke the shifter. Most likely it will take a replacement shifter to repair.

I was backing up and when I went to shift from reverse to drive it wouldn't shift or go into any gear and after putting into park it wouldn't move at all


My personal experience is that your gear shifter has an electric actuator, allowing it to move through the gears. However, if the the voltage is NOT supplied, your gear shifter won't move...My Mercury had a fuse that wouldn't indicate it was broken until power was applied, then the shifter wouldn't move. This is a difficult circuit to find.

Gear shifter is in Park, but dash reads it's in Reverse. Car won't turn over because it is in Reverse now.


You have to locate where the park ignition switch is located. Some are on the transmission and some are in the column under the dash. It probably got moved.

2001 montero sport check engine light on..neutral light flashing..doesnt shift right and jerks when you put the shifter in reverse, but does reverse ok, almost feels like it is stuck in 3rd gear..happened...


Your check engine light is on because the computer picked up a problem with the vehicle. Take it to Autozone and they will scan it for free. They will let you know what is wrong and what parts you may need.

My renault megane automatic is stuck in reverse and won't start


Hi all,
I have a 2002 Renault Megane 1.6 Convertible and experienced exactly the same fault. Needed a team effort but we found a very easy quick fix to this problem. If you take the plastic cover off from under the gear shifter, you will notice a release button covered by a rubber cover. Pressing this release button allows the gear shifter to move from its locked/jammed position. (This is not the fix but it helps with the fix).
If you are fortunate enough to have a 2nd person available, have them poke their head under the bonnet to watch the Gearbox cable move....while you are shifting the gear shifter inside the vehicle. Your partner will see that a cable with a plastic locking device (right hand side of the engine cover) has popped off the shifter for the transmission. Move the shifter until you can physically put the plastic locking device back on the shifter mechanism and your all good to go. No need for that new gearbox that you might have been quoted on!! An easy fix that I am surprised no mechanically minded professional/body in the world has volunteered the solution to. I wonder why????

Good luck!

Car stops moving in reverse gear


Sounds like the car is just slipping out of gear. Keep your hand on the shifter when you back up next time. See if you can feel the shifter move when the car comes out of gear. If the shifter moves up when it happens keep pressure on the shifter holding it back like you dont want it to move forward. And of course if the shifter moves back when it comes out of gear, put forward pressure on the shifter so it doesnt slip out. This might work for now but but i know i wouldnt want to spen 700 for that ****. Let me know how it goes.
