The mechanic should check on the ignition switch, ignition coil, distributor assembly , the spark plug, spark plug cable , the wires ,and the fuses, plus the starter solenoid . Because of it could be a electrical problem it will click when going to start but it will not start.There fore there is a problem in the electrical part of the car .these that have been mentioned if worn out or destroyed should be replace or repair.And also if the transmission shift lever is been stock it should also be checked .You should adjust the shift sleeve ,the shift fork may be these is the problem because of it is tightened.Don't forget to check the connection of the battery to the ignition system just to sure that there is no loose connection wires on the battery and also on the wire connection also look for a loose wire connection and reconnect.

Car sometimes wont start even if just turned off replaced starter motor and ignition barrel


Try starting it with the shift lever in neutral, if it starts, the transmission switch is bad (automatics), or with the key to start position move the shift lever thru the range of gears. If a stick shift and the clutch pedal must be pressed down, the clutch switch may be going out if intermittent starts

My battery is dead and I can't move the car due to the auto gear shift stuck in park. How do I move the car to get a jump on the battery?


if you look on the center council where the shift lever is you will see a small plastic button on the drivers. Remove the button. Insert a small screwdriver into the hole and push down. You will then be able to move the shift lever into nuetral and push the car.

2002 toyota Highlander. will not go into park. will drive fine in all gears, but from rev to park is basically impossible. Have to push rather strongly to get it there in order to turn off and get key out....


Hello. Welcome to FixYa.

It sounds like the bushing on the transmission, where the shift cable attaches, is either broken or seized.

What to do:

Go out, open the hood, and have someone move the shift lever. Observe the front of the transmission, on the driver side, where the cable meets the lever on the front of the transmission.

The bushing may be seized or broken.

Some cars would not start if the transmission is in gear. Check first the wires and the switch for the lever on the transmission. The sensors/switch is found at the lever itself.

2002 toyota camry doesnt lock in parking


Have someone operate the gear shift while you watch the mechanism on the transmission so that you know what parts you are looking for. Shift into the park position, then uncouple the linkage and move the lever on the transmission fully into the park position. Then adjust the length of the linkage while holding the driver's lever in the park position so that the linkage connector goes back together without pulling on anything.

Car moves backwards in "Park"


can be that the cable for your shifter lever needs to be adjusted in the engine bay on the transmission itself. it may be that when you shift it into park the lever doesn't reach far into the park position hence would still be in reverse and then when it bucks thats when the time it slips into park.
