Transmission won,t go out of park


Nearly all the new cars have a Park-Interlock System (with an Auto Transmission)
The Key is on - usually engine running
The Brake Pedal applied
Then shifter is Un-Locked
There could be a problem with the interlock system
Also be aware that if you have the vehicle parked on an incline - that can put the transmission linkage in a bind making it almost impossible to shift out of park. To prevent this last issue from happening - AWAYS apply the parking brake when parking on an incline. Let the parking brake support the weight of the vehicle - not the transmission park paw gear.

For car not changing gears and not shifting out of park mode ,it can be shifter assembly issue, or it can also be transmission issue. Get the shifter assembly inspected with ignition OFF.

Rumbling noise coming from engine compartment.


engine size, etc., I can only make educated guesses, but here goes: You stated "My car will drive, but very slow hardly moving". My first suspicion is that you don't have a transmission problem, but the car is in what Chrysler calls the 'limp-home mode'. This occurs when the computer 'sees' a problem with an engine function or sensor that is serious, but not so bad that the car won't run at all. Limp-home mode allows your car to only operate in second gear so that you won't damage it further by driving normally, but won't leave you stranded either. Is your 'check engine' or 'service engine' light on? If not, check to see that it actually works by turning the key 'on', but not starting the car. All the dash lights should be lit for about 3-5 seconds. No matter what, you need to check your transmission fluid level (on a Crysler, should be checked with the engine running and in gear, NOT park or nuetral). Safety first, make sure someone is holding the brake on - please don't ever trust a 'parking brake' for this. If the fluid level is OK and there's no 'check engine' light you need
to visit a competent transmission shop. Probabably a worn front pump, torque converter, or a hung spool valve in the valve body, none of which is generally fixable at home. If you do have a 'check engine' light on, see a regular mechanic first as there is a mechanical problem probably not related to the transmission. Good Luck!

2001 ford f150 supercab will not start park only in neutral , dome light is out and power windows will not work


Could be 3 unrelated problems.

1. The will not start in park. This seems like the DTR ( digital Transmission Range ) Sensor on the side of the automatic trans is not making contact in the Park position.
Quick test, wheel chock at least 2 sets of wheel on a level surface, with truck in park, and a friend pressing the brake pedal, have them turn the key to the run position.
Wait for the theft light to go out, and on the starter motor relay on the firewall, apply +12 V to the small gauge wire ( orange or orange w/ a stripe of color on it ). The starter motor relay will have 2 large battery cable size wires, and a smaller 16 AWG orange ( w or w/o color stripe ) on it. If this starts the truck, the DTR is the problem.

The orange wire runs through the DTR, and will only allow power to the starter relay in park or neutral. You seem to have a problem with the park side of the sensor.
It is on the driver's side of the trans, with a connector to it. Check the connector for water / corrosion prior to ordering a new one.

Just started


check your ignition switch, they have a mechanism where if the transmission is on any gear ( including neutral ) it wont turn over all the way back, so if you turned off hte vehicle and got the key out " this happens often " before the last step because of a kinda worn key or switch that allowed you to get it out.
your transmission won go to park.
so try playing wih your switch first, go all the way to start, and all the way to acc or off trying to put the tranny on psrk
and see if that helps.
if not let me know
