This is the de-tent or kick down cable. Most commonly known as the down shift cable. This tells the transmission when the car needs it to down shift. If the cable does not do its job then the car stays in a higher gear and dies when put into gear. Hope this helps. Good luck.

2010 holden cruze diesel. stuck in park, keys are stuck in ignition. have no brake tail lights no windscreen washer 12 volt socket in car and the boot is locked. please help.


The stuck in park is easy disconnect the linkage at the transmission and move the selector red by two notches (by hand) this will place the transmission in neutral if there is resistance chock the wheels release the handbrake and rock the car ( back and forward to take load off the parking parking pawl which is stuck) no electrics is because of the ignition position remove the ignition switch from the column this isolates from the ignition lock and manually move the slide until the engine starts (make sure the hoot & hand brake are applied in case you ******* up the selector job and left it in gear. once the engine starts reconnect the transmission linkage. restart the engine and run the selector through the gears if all is OK.either cut the old ignition lock off the steering column and replace or get a locksmith to remove the key and then re-cut a new key from the spare or from the manufacturers code. all done

How do I fix the transmission problem? The car is moving forward at neutral, drive and low gear, and switching to parking mode at reverse and parking. The car is not backing up at all.


Transmission may now be toast since you continued to drive it when maybe low on fluid or torque converter had failed. How long since last fluid and filter change? Ever?

How to check the shifting cable on a oldsmobile alero


Well, if you move the gear selector and the transmission goes from park to reverse, neutral, and drive then it is probably good. If you move the gear selector and the transmission does not change then there might be a problem.

AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION , REVERSE GEAR WORKS , DRIVE DOES NOT


check the selector is adjusted and tight as you may be selecting the last of the gears as it moves . When stopped -place it in park and check where the selector is underneath

1989 Ford Crown Victoria wont go into reverse and drives in nuetral???


Sounds like your linkage slipped out of sequence. On your transmission there is a place where you can manually shift your tansmission through the gears. When you move the selector on the trani it should move the shifter as well. All the way up on selector should be park, then R,N,D so on. If you move the selector all the way up at your shifter reads something else, you need to adjust the linkage and put car in park with selector on trani in park and tighten linkage back up. Run through all the gears and you should be good.

My gear shift won't move out of reverse. It moves around but real loose and has pwr but can't start cuz it won't go into park.


Try to push the car or move slowly in reverse ( the struck position) when you must ttry to wrigggle out the gear.
But then you need to get the gear box overhauled to drive once again.
The fault can be minor , maybe the notch selector- but I think the box has to be taken out to have the job done properly.
Best get opinion of cost from you known circle.

When i put my van into drive or reverse, the van wont move. I'm hoping it'snot the transmissions. I haven't had any issues with this problembefore. I had my brother look t it, he thinks it's somting to...


OK so the engines fires up? This means that the transmission is neutral or park. Try starting the car with the shift in gear. If the car starts but does not move this tells you that the selector switch on the side of the transmission casing is not being moved out of 'park' and therefore the links need to be checked for continuity. If the engine fails to start then the selector has been moved out of 'park' and that although the links from the gear selector in the car to the are OK there is something wrong with the transmission.

My 1999 Pontiac Sunfire GT 2.4L Automatic Gear Selector is broken


you car likely thinks its stuck in reverse, which it may be... even if you can roll it. you'll need to find a way to either get it into park or neutral, normally this can be done by the actual linkages under the shift console or from underneath the car.

Gear locks when i park on even a slight incline


ALWAYS engage the Parking Brake BEFORE putting car into "Park". When you want to get out of "Park", put your foot on the brake pedal, move gear shifter into desired gear, THEN take down Parking Brake. If you get stuck (gear shifter doesn't move), then try the "rocking" method (recruit 1 or 2 folks to push your car from behind while you try to move gear shifter into desired gear). Good luck!
