There is a switch that senses when the shift is in park, you need to adjust it from your description

94 mazda protage car wont start no power and the gear shift wont move


Your gear shift won't move because there is an interlock which prevents taking your car out of PARK unless your foot is on the brake. Since the release solenoid is electric, and you appear not to have any electricity, you will not be able to move the shift lever unless you use the Emergency Release (described in your Owner's Manual).
As to your lack of power, perhaps a dead battery? (Good place to start checking!)

Have a 95 suzuki sidekick had some work done on the wireing around fuel injectors now my engine light is on and it wont shift out of first gear.please help no money left


this should be a simple solution rock your vehicle forward then reverse on running engine
they call this trans lock usually happens on hills or pressing down the shifting knob
get a few friends to help push forward if cant start vehicle because in gear its like the old 4x4 hubs in order to get out of lock it needs to be rolled a little
my little 4x4 did same thing called a friend he told me same way to fix

If the Gear is truck into unless the clutch disengages it wont shift. So start the car move slightly- if no space is a avialable jack up and let the drive wheel move- now shift the gear after depressing clutch. It must shift over now. If not repeat while the drive moves. You can now shift the car to forward gear .

check your trans fluid level make sure that it is ok but you have to check it hot in park on level ground in order to get an accurate reading. if fluid level is ok you may have to get the tranny serviced the clutches inside the tranny could be slipping.

It wont shift into any gear, the cables seem to be o k


Well youll need a second person to help on this one. One person to press brake pedal and some one to make sure brake lights a working.
Most vehicle have a shift lock on them that works with brake so that when you shift the car into gear it senses that the brake is on so it wont just jump forward or backward for safety. Id start with checking that it has brake lights then next would be fuses.

3.3 voyager, would not go into reverse went forward a ok, now will go into reverse but wont go forward


With a partner and engine off but key in on (not start) position: Have them shift from Park to Low one gear at a time, while you watch the shift linkage located on top of the transmission. Sounds like the shift cable is loose. IF SO: Place Shift Lever in Park. Loosen the the cable adjustment screw. Move the shift rod (going into the transmission) towards the front of the vehicle until in Park. Tighten the cable adjustment screw to 100 in-lbs. Check Park/Neutral starting only.

1996ford econ Shifting gear problem


Almost definately, follow the shift linkages down the column and under the bonnet get a buddy to move them while you are looking the worn parts will be very obvious. quite involved to repair if it all needs to be overhauled, may be best to be left to an experianced tech, unless you have relevent experience. it wont start somtimes because the inhibitor switch is on the linkage.
