Chevy cavalier gear shifter

if it is s manual box remove the gear lever tower from the top of the box and see what damage was done to the bottom of lever and/or lever pivot pin in the tower. Remember normal gear boxes require a gentle shift to allow the syncro rings to work properly and if you want to do racing changes get yourself a specially built box.

Broken altenator belt peugeot partner 2002

Once your belt snapped all of your cars power was running off of the battery (lights, radio, spark plugs, etc.), then your battery died. Therefore you have no power to turn your starter and apply a spark. Get someone to jump your car, once your car is started allow it to run for a little while to charger your battery back up. Batteries don't allways charge up properly either so you may end up needing a battery, depending on its age.

There is power but it does nothing when i turn the ignition

try starting it in neutral. there is a safety switch on the transmission that will not allow the car to start unless it is in park or neutral. sometimes the shift lever gets a little out of line with the transmission. also try shifting to and from park a few times. this may trigger the switch to allow a start. good luck

Will not shift out of park

Look in your owner's manual under fuses. There is a fuse for brake shift lock solenoid (fuse #1). You can still drive your car by turning the key on just enough to shift to neutral, and then starting it in neutral. You can shift to drive and reverse, but if you shift to Park then you have to turn the engine off and proceed as previously
