SOURCE: The gear shift get's stuck

Could be the shifter interlock switch - your car requires that the brake pedal is pressed before it can come out of park. If that switch is not working, the car won't ever know you're pressing the brake, and won't let the car out of park.

SOURCE: My 2003 Mercury Mountaineer Gear Shift is stuck.

See if u have brake lights. This is what energizes the shifter solenoid. There are 2 fuses u can check both are in the under dash fuse panel. Fuse 23 (15amp) and fuse 26 (7.5amp).
To get it out of park turn igntion switch on stopping just short of engerizing the electronics then u should be able to get it out of park and into neutral.

SOURCE: The manual gear shift will not move to reverse it

Some times you could get them out of park by pounding on the top of the shifter while moving it out of park at the same time. You need a new shifter assembly. If it won't come out of park, they can drag it onto a flatbed.

Fix pacifica stuck in park


Are you parked on a significant incline? You may need to have your car CAREFULLY pushed slightly uphill by another vehicle while moving the shift lever. Not on a hill or a light uphill push doesn't help? Check to see if your brake lights are working. If your brake lights do not come on when you depress the pedal, your brake light switch or brake light circuit fuse may be the culprit, as that is where the release solenoid for your gear shift receives its power. Correct the brake light circuit issue and your problem will be cleared.
If your brake lights are working correctly, listen for a light click at the gear shift lever when you depress the brake. If you don't hear one, suspect the locking solenoid is jammed (can usually be corrected with a shot of oil, once you get to it).
Another possibility is that the shift linkage has jammed. Check the linkage for broken parts. It is also possible that the "parking pin" in your transmission has become jammed, especially if the car was run into while parked. If that is the case, you'll need to have the park pin replaced.

2001 passat auto shift i have to put it in drive to get it in reverse and 3 to get it in drive the key is also stuck


It sounds to me that your linkage on the transmission is out of adjustment. If it is as you described, then Neutral should be park. To fix this problem, you need to shift the car all the way into park, (set your parking break. Add wheel chalks if possible.) Locate the shifter linkage on the transmission,(either under the hood, or under the car) loosen the lock screw/s on the linkage. move the linkage on the transmission either direction.(you should feel the clicks of the gears) Park gear, is typically all the way opposite the direction the linkage is inserted. Click the selector all the way until it stops rotating. Then tighten the screw/s. Try your shifter now, you should feel the gears click smoothly into place. Hope this helps.

Gears stuck in 1st...on my ford 91 econoline 150 why also it started after I change the flywheel


When you say it is stuck in first, does that mean you can not shift into reverse or park, or that it won't shift higher than first ?
Is it possible the shift linkage is out of adjustment ?

When i try to put it in park it takes it at times. i have to start it on neutral at times. it feels to smooth when i try to sift the gear.


Two possible causes could be a bad neutral safety switch (enables the vehicle to start in only Park or Neutral) or the transmission linkage may need adjusting. If you feel significant "play" in the gear shift (from what you described, it appears to have a lot of play) the linkage will need to be adjusted to get the gear shift to "lock in" to the individual gears instead of sliding.

Gear stick will not move from park !


Make sure you car is actually in PARK, Easy to do, Just disengage the parking brake (emergency brake) and attempt to push your car both forward and reverse to ensure your car isnt in neutral. If you cant budge the vehicle your good to go! If it rolls forward it may be in neutral or a forward gear. if it rolls backwards it may be in neutral or reverse. If it rolls both directions its in neutral. On that note if it moves at all skip to the third step (***) and make sure the transmissions shift bracket is in the park possition. Depending on your cars transmission model the parking gear is located all the way left to the farthest possition or all the way right to the farthest possition) One direction will put you in Park, the other in will put you in 1st gear, If your in 1st gear the linkage should be too far away from the shift plate to connect if your column says you are in park. DO NOT ATTEMPT TO START YOUR CAR WHILE IT IS IN A DRIVE GEAR AND THE LINKAGE IS DISCONNECTED IF YOU ARE ABLE TO START YOUR CAR IN ITS CURRENT STATE DO NOT MOVE THE TRANSMISSIONS SHIFT BRACKET UNTIL LATER IN THIS INSTRUCTIONAL!!!!!

* Floor shift automatic, the push pin lever (located inside your shifter/gear stick) may be malfunctioning. You have to pop the grip off and inspect the white plastic pin inside the shaft to see if it is damaged, also check inside the grip while you press the safety release (shift lock button) to ensure the internal slide mechanics are propperly working). Also check for anything obstructing the levers movement inside the floor housing.

** Column Shift. Make sure your pull pin lock is working properly (disengages the shift lock when you pull back the gear shift before you select a gear) if its broke theres two possible behaviors you'll experiance -1. You cant pull the gear shift back at all or -2. No effort or less than normal effot is required to pull back the gear shift. If all that checks out then you have to inspect the steering column linkage bar (you may have to remove some of the steering column housing to view it. Make sure the bar isn't bent or that its movement isnt obstructed.

***Automatic Transmission Linkage Check - Look under the kick panel located above the gas and brake pedals.........Once linkage is located under the dash (kick panel) disconnect it and try the gear shift. If the cable moves under the dash then reconnect it and move on to the next step.
Now block the wheels and climb under the car and disconnect the linkage from the transmission and have someone work the gear shift while you see if the cable is operating propperly, if the linkage moves (as it should) then try shifting the transmission back and fourth by hand while the linkage is disconnected., If the shift bracket feels stiff or is dirty clean it off with non corosive chemicals so you dont damage any seals. If the bracket operates smoother go ahead and reconnect the linkage and try shifting with the column again. Be sure to move the shift bracket back to the park position and make sure your shifter column is in park as well before you reconnect the linkage, if you dont you are sure to run into more issues.

Hope this helps you out! If all the mentioned area's above are in working order then your problem is with the car's transmission and you should take it to a speciallist.

Wont shift out of Park


will it shift to other gears? You should check your linkage... you'll have to get under the car and locate it on the transmission. Possibly trace it back to the gear shift and find out if there is possibly a kink in it somewhere or some other obstruction.

Gear shift stuck in park on a 2001 gran am. howdo


It is probably not the shift linkage causing your concern. All modern vehicles have a feature called Shift Interlock. It doesn't allow the shifter on automatic equipped vehicles to be moved from park without the key in the ignition and the brake applied. There should be a bypass that will allow you to atleast drive the car for the time being. Check your owners manual to find where it is. It's usually around the shifter. The most common cause for this problem are the brake switch or the shift lock solenoid.

Key is stuck in the ignition


The linkage from the shifter to the transmission could be worn. A guy I work with had the same problem with the same car. He change the linkage and it worked fine again
