SOURCE: Van won't lock into reverse or park all the time.

it is either the shifter or the cable, I would go with a broken part in the shifter linkage. Detrim the steering column and see what shows up, very easy just 4 screw I think.

SOURCE: steering column

You probably have problems with transmission switch wich is on "Park" at that time, but sensor sends a signal that transmission is in gear. Try to start your car on "Neutral". It might help and indicate a problem for shure

SOURCE: 2001 FORD FOCUS SHIFTER CABLE SNAPED

You did not need to remove the heater box to replace the cable. There is a hole in the floor the cable passes through.

2001 Ford ex xplorer sport trac. Transmission is in drive even when in park, reverse, neutral or drive


Is it a floor shift or column? The simplest explanation would be that the lever from the shifter is not connected to the transmission. If it is shifted with a cable from the shifter going to the transmission make sure the cable is still attached to the transmission and shifter.You need to get under the vehicle and have someone operate the shifter while you inspect it and make sure it is moving the lever on the transmission. It is apparent the transmission is stuck in drive mode and the lever or cable changing modes is not connected either at the shifter or transmission.

I have a 1989 firebird and it will not go into park I really need help with this


Is it a column shifter or on the floor between seats? Sounds like a cable adjustment problem. I would block wheels and properly jack up car to access the transmission shifter linkage . Check to see if you can get tranny to go into park by hand by moving the level on the drivers side of transmission

Gear shift is loose windstar sel 2001


You need to screw a bolt which is located under the steering column. Take off a panel under the steering column. Take a flush light look under and jiggle the shifter arm. There is a bolt (I think it's a star shaped so you need to buy it) connecting 2 parts of linkage. It will be loose. Screw it and shifter arm will be as new.

I believe the transmission linkage on my 2001 tahoe has somehow become disconnected. I'm looking for a diagram of this linkage. It is in park and when I go to change gears, the shifter just about...


look under the truck on the drivers side.you will see the shifter rod on the tranny. if the cable end is not connected to the ball reconnect it if its connected have some one move the gear selector while you watchit. if the cable doesnt move its broken and will need to be replaced. if the sector moves on the tranny and its not going into gear the tranny will need to come apart to find the problem. PS MAKE SURE THE TRUCK IS NOT RUNNING AND THE PERSON MOVING THE SELECTOR KEEPS THEIR FOOT ON THE BRAKE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
