94 camaro z28 automatic shifte was stiff jerked it to first gear like a idiot now stuck in first starts up in first still got underneath I can change gears w transmission lever but shift cable in park only...


If the car starts in first, it sounds like you have a problem with the lock cable. There should be a cable from steering column to shifter that prevents the shifter from moving out of park.

Remove the center console and examine the cables. Disconnect the one from the steering column and see if that frees up the shifter. If it does, you will need to find out what is jamming the steering column. Check the cable for frays 1st. Then make sure you didn't drop something down the center console, last look at the cable connection behind the ignition key.... when you are poking around the steering column, disconnect the battery and let is sit for a few minutes or you risk the air-bags blowing up in your face.

A long time ago, I melted a gear shift cable when I didn't have a good ground on the engine block. When the car started, the power when through the shifter cable and it must have gone red hot and melted.

Shifter linkage cable


You will need to have it up on a lift to inspect the under carriage where it hooks up to the transmission. Sounds like you lost something.

Shifter on steering column stuck


You'll have to remove the steering column. There's a few bolts that hold it to the bottom of the dash and a couple that attach it to the steering shaft before it goes through the firewall into the engine compartment. Remove that section of column and towards the bottom of it your find 2 torx screws. Tighten those screws back up and reinstall the column. The screws, in time, work themselves loose and cause this problem.

Gear shift is not order on my 1999 ford expidition and now is r is park how do i realign the shifter


There is a small string-like cable incased in a plastic tubing that runs from the instrument cluster housing that the indicator sits in, the opposite end is looped onto a hook on the shifter on the steering column. Follow the plastic tubing till you get to the end. There should be a tiny adjusting gear with threads. Turn the gear until your indicator aligns with the correct gear. (Note: you must disassemble the column trim to see the tube)

95 crown victoria does not lock in any shift. It doesn't even go in parking i have to use the e-brake. then to turn it on i go in the bottom of the car, click some switch then turn on. it drives forward...


if the gear lever is on the steering collum the ear that the lever mounts into may have broken or it may have lost the center pin that holds it in place. take a flashlight take a look at it to see if that's it if so either repair you will have to remove the steering wheel and possibly other parts to get to.

Where is the neutral safety switch no a chevy c1500 transmission


Generally on GMs, if it's a column shift, it's down low on the steering column under the dash, and if it is a floor shift, it is at the base of the shifter, under the shifter housing. Look for purple wires or a purple wire and a yellow wire. I don't know what year your truck is. Hope this helps!

My gear shifter is in the park position but says its in neutral. It wont move at all. The shifter is on the steering column and is a automatic.


It's a linkage adjustment on the bottom of the vehicle, or the pointer has broken loose from the steering column collar under the steering wheel.

You can sometimes crawl underneath the vehicle to figure out what needs to be adjusted if the problem is down there.

Shifter sloppy, having trouble getting it into gear.


There is a bracket with two torx screws that gets loose. You need to tighten that. You will need to remove the plastic and metal shield under the dash, above the brake pedal to see the bracket. Look up above the brake pedal and wiggle the the shift lever and you will see what needs tightened. Worked for me.
