The tranmission allows you two driving styles fully automatic (D) or manual (M). (D) behaves like a normal transmission while (M) uses the + for gearing up and - for gearing down. You'll notice when you switch to (M) the number of the gear your presently in shows up on the speedo. After that you just operate it as you would a manual. When you come to a stop the transmission will automatically shift down to 1 but as you accelerate you will need to shift the lever forward to the + to shift up. You can switch between both transmission modes while driving.

Hi i have a 2006 1.6 ford focus automatic,gear lever gets stuck. will not select from park to drive.have to put screw driver in access next to gear lever. to shift gear lever from park to drive positi


it could be that the ignition lock and/0r the brake pedal sensor that unlock (allows you to move the shifter) are/is not working correctly or has failed. You will have to check both those elements as well as the cable beneath the consul covering and the solenoid that pulls the cable.

What is a detent on a shifter


A detent is a notch or notches in a part used to keep a shifter (in this case) at a certain position. Be that an automatic or stick-shift. You can imply that the shift pattern on a stick-shift has detents for each gear as the shift lever locks and slides in and out of each position for that gear to work when the clutch is released. The detents on an automatic can resemble "steps" which engage a different gear or series of gears(drive) when a certain step is locked into position by a pressure bar or pressure lever.

Sometimes the pressure bar or pressure lever is spring loaded and your hand works against that tension to select a gear or function(drive). There may be an adjustment for the spring tension, or the spring is too weak and the shift assembly must be replaced.

With electronic shift solenoids, some of the shift assembly is different than with the old-style mechanical shifter. The action may be fly by wire with electronic shifts.

I do not know what you have, so there may be differences.
