It could be the selenoid lock it self , which is located at he front of the Selector. You might need to remove the selector and test it if it is working properly. As it should be working for safety reasons

How much do jag s type shocks cost on average or are there better ones to use after market versus OEM shocks? Also can the factory super charger be added without any major modifications?


Munroe are good shocks. Details in the link.

Adding a supercharger for a car is not an easy job and would need pulleys and possibly strengthening of some internal parts. You would have to go to a tuner.

Get a garage to put the car on a diagnostics rig to see what your cats system fault is.

Why can't I remove the key from the ignition of my 2007 CTS? I can't even turn the ignition all the way to the off position


Make sure transmission is in Park. Key will not come out until ignition is fully off and ignition will not turn fully off until gear selector is in park

Using key start, instrument panel illuminates but why won't it turn over?


Dirty battery posts...(loose) or locked starter...sometimes you can tap the starter with a hammer to make it work one time to confirm...Hope this helps.

I have a 2009 kia rio . Key won't unlock the ignition


If you have been driving with a heavy bunch of keys on the keychain, it is likely that you have worn out the key lock. If you hold the key up to relieve the weight it mught start, Otherwise it is likely that the mechanism that ensures the gearshift is in Park or Neutral has worn and the key is not sure it is in park. Hold the gearshift farther in the park position and try to work the ignition, If this works you may be able to have the mechanism adjusted to the proper position.

How to release gear sheft to nutral with no key


Release the gearshift at the linkage in the engine bay, then you can switch the selector out of Park by means of the gearshift linkage on the transmission. BTW don't tow this car unless it's on a flatbed; it will damage the AWD system.

My 2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee wont start sometimes, but if I put it in neutral then try to start it..It starts .. What is the problem with my baby.......


Test/Service/Replace

The circuit on newer cars with automatic transmissions has a neutral safety, or neutral start switch installed between the ignition switch and the starter. The ignition switch cannot operate the starter motor unless the transmission is in park or neutral.
Late model vehicles with manual transmissions have a starter/clutch interlock switch that requires the clutch to be depressed to the floor.
Neutral Safety Switch
Normal operations of a neutral safety switch provides a quick check for the adjustment of the gear selector linkage.
  • To do this, move the selector slowly until it clicks into the PARK position.
  • Turn the ignition key to the START position.
  • If the starter operates, the PARK position is correct.
  • After checking the PARK position, move the lever slowly toward the NEUTRAL position until the lever drops at the end of the NEUTRAL stop in the selector gate.
  • If the starter also operates at this point, the gearshift linkage is properly adjusted.
  • This quick test also tests the adjustment of the neutral safety switch.
  • If the engine does not start in either or both of these positions, the neutral safety switch or the gear selector linkage needs adjustment or repair.

CAUTION
Since you must work under the vehicle to adjust most shift linkages make sure you properly raise and support the vehicle before working under it. Also, wear safety glasses or goggles while working under the vehicle.
A voltmeter can be used to check the switch for voltage when the ignition key is turned to the START position with the shift lever in PARK or NEUTRAL. If there is no voltage, the switch should be adjusted or replaced.

My 2002 tbird won't get out ofnpark


If you cannot move the gearshift lever out of P (Park) with ignition in
the RUN position and the brake pedal depressed:
1. Apply the parking brake, turn ignition key to LOCK, then remove the
key.
2. Insert the key and turn it to OFF. Apply the brake pedal and shift to N
(Neutral). This allows the automatic transmission shift lever to be
moved from the P (Park) position without the brake pedal
depressed.
3. Start the vehicle.
If it is necessary to use the above procedure to move the gearshift lever,
it is possible that a fuse has blown or the vehicle's brakelamps are not
operating properly.

Ignition appears to be stuck...please help..


Check your gearshift position. There are interlocks for the Ignition both with the Brake pedal, the steering wheel, and the gearshift. With your gearshift, if you have an Automatic, there is a trigger to press so the Shifter will move. If the trigger is stuck into the fixture the Key will not come out or the Ignition switch may not turn.

With the steering wheel, sometimes there is pressure from how the front tires where left when the car was parked. The steering assembly is pinched and must be moved to the side that is jammed so the Ignition Key will turn.

The Brake pedal, there are switches under the dash at the top of the brake pedal lever. These must align to let the gearshift move which in turn may free the Keyswitch. They get hit by feet frequently and may need to be replaced or repositioned.

Make sure you are using the right set of Keys and it is possible for the Ignition switch to break inside.

I hope this helps you.
