Sounds like the shift cable has broken and not allowing the gear shift to move the lever on the transmission.

1975 cadillac coup deville acts like brakes or parking brakes are locked up engaged. In a bind and will barely move in gear. parking brake pedal is up in the disengaged position. Help?


It is not unusual for the parking brake cable assembly to seize due to corrosion. Also, the rear brakes are self-adjusting when backing up and can eventually wind up by themselves until they lock up. Start by removing the rear wheels and checking the brake shoe assemblies. Due to the age of the vehicle, this can be quite a chore, as the brake adjuster may have to be manually backed off before the brake drums will come off. Also, if the brake cable is seized, you may have to remove/manually loosen it as well. It is a part that needs lubricating periodically so it works freely, and may need to be replaced.

Parked on a inclined driveway so I went 2 release da car from park into 2 reverse n the shift won't move at all please help me


Sounds to me like there is too much weight on the "park" gear. Have someone push the car forward a little bit, and do it gently, to release some of the pressure on the transmission, and it should shift from Park without a problem. I highly recommend if parking on an inclined driveway, or any hill, to use the parking brake if it is possible to do so. Good Luck

The gear shift is stuck in park. The wheel moves


Make sure you have brake lamps. The shift interlock solenoid is powered by the brake lamp switch.

2002 Windstar wont go into gear


These are common for the pump shaft splines stripping in the torque converter. The transmission will need to be removed to fix it. Before you condemn the trans, does the speedo move and the van doesn't or do you hear any grinding when you put it back into park? Or can you push the van in park (Broken CV shafts)?
