The shift cable broke or is out of adjustment. You can manually release it by putting an ice pick in the mechanical release hole on the shift lever console in an emergency to get yourself going but you must get it fixed or re-adjusted.

I have a suzuki xl7 2003 the steering wheel is locked. I move the steering wheel to the left to release the pressure, but I still can't turn the ignition


Elvira, You may have a shift interlock spring or cable problem. If you have already tried turning the steering wheel forcefully back and fourth and key is not turning, try and shift the car into park with a little force and pressing and releasing shifter button rapidly to release ignition key. Find a good locksmith or take vehicle into a good shop for diagnoses and estimate on repair. Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

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

2001 Monte Carlo wont start shift cable issue


Don't know about needing the brake pedal pushed to get INTO park, but it might, as the pedal needs to be pressed to get it OUT of park.

Anti shift gear car wont come out of park


follow the steps . God bless you
Instructions
    • 1 Start the engine. Press firmly on the brake while wiggling the shifter from side to side.
    • 2 Remove the console surrounding the shifter. It is usually very easy although you may need to use the screwdriver to lift an edge or remove a clip
    • 3 Look inside the shifter mechanism for any sticky substance. Often when drinks are spilled on the console they seep down into the shifter mechanism and make the interlock solenoid sticky, meaning that it sticks closed when you press the brake and the car won't come out of park.
    • 4 Remove any sticky substance with the alcohol. Start the engine, press the brake and try to move the shifter out of park. If it still does not move then there may be another issue with the interlock.
    • 5 Examine the shifter for a release button that will allow you to move the vehicle out of park so it can be taken to a repair shop. It is usually hidden under a small flap or cover that will have to be lifted with a small screwdriver.

I purchased a 2001 Kia sportage ex, automatic transmission, about 2 1/2 months ago, and after I started driving it home, realized that it wont shift gears. AT ALL. The only way my dad got it to shift from...


This is hard for me, because I would like to give you a lesson on vehicle purchasing.
You somehow bought a vehicle with a bad trans.
That could have been prevented
Having own a trans shop ,I have nothing positive to share with you. Sorry.
You will need professional help and unless it is a simple electrical issue,your going for a complete rebuild.
I did alot of foreign trans work. They just don't hold up like a Chevy or Dodge or some Fords.

When i start my car and press the brake to shift out of park it sticks and wont move. i have and automatic 1998 cadilac catera


HI, there is a solenoid(switch) that's located in shift linkage housing that works in conjunctions with the brake pedal when you shift from park to reverse or drive. this is a safety situation.

Sometimes, this solenoid(switch) can malfunction or die. In this case, it will prevent the gear shift lever from moving into the reverse or parked position. Simply replacing this shift lever solenoid will fix this issue. You can expose the solenoid by disassembling the shift stick housing,

Please rate and have a great day:)

You need to check the linkage. Under the car, the section that connects the gear shift stick to the transmission rods.

Shifting in drive from park position


that means the pin that the knob presses down is stuck on something. if you take the shifting panel off it showes everything. then there will be a plastic guide. see what the pin is sticking on and there you are.
