Its sitting in park.will roll back an forth like its in neutral. turn key,nothing happens. have full battery.could it be a neutral safety switch?


It sounds like your transmission is not going into park. There is a safety switch which is why you have to engage the brake while the vehicle is in park to start it. It is not sending current thru because it is not registering that the vehicle is in park. Try engaging the emergency brake and taking the transmission to drive then back into park and see if it engages. Then try to turn the ignition and see if you have power to your gauges and ignition switch.

Rolls royce silver spirit 1982 can't move as been told stuck in gear. Turns over, fuel pump clicking. Been told this means working fine. Started up after first time in 10 years, been dry stored. ...


If it is like other cars with automatics, the neutral safety switch won't allow starting in gear. The park/neutral switch would not allow current to pass through to the starter motor from the ignition switch if it is not in park or neutral. This is a safety feature, and probably universal.
Pull one of the spark plug wires from a spark plug and check for spark while the engine is cranking over. If no spark, the ignition system needs diagnosing. I have no idea where to go from there on a Rolls Royce- it would be rather primitive compared to modern electronics, but then on a rolls, well you get my drift.

Car is in park on incline, and will not start.


There is a neutral safety switch to make sure car is neutral.If that switch went bad or becase your parked on incline the switch is not made up because car rolled back when you put it in park.If you can depending on the situation,put key in ignition,turn key till one click before it starts,apply emergency brake,depress regular brakes and shift car from park to drive then back to park.then turn off key and restart.If for some reason you try to shift out of park and it wont move you need to roll car a little forward or backward(have someone else do the pushing and be carefull not to put anyone in a pinch point between another car if this car is parked between two cars)With older cars this is usally the case.If this fixes your problem i would have a mechanic change switch because this will probrobly happen again.Be carefull.......

Can a 1998 4x4 S-10 blazer be dinghy towed?


Yes it can, just place your Transfer Case in Neutral position.
Shifting into NEUTRAL
To shift the transfer case to NEUTRAL do the following:

Make sure the vehicle is parked so that it will not roll.
Set the parking brake.
Start the vehicle or turn the ignition to RUN.
Connect the vehicle to the towing vehicle.
Put the transmission in NEUTRAL (N).
Shift the transfer case to 2HI.
Simultaneously press and hold the 2HI and 4LO buttons for 10 seconds. The red NEUTRAL light will come on when the transfer case shift to NEUTRAL is complete.
Shift the transmission to REVERSE (R) for one second, then shift the transmission to DRIVE (D) for one second, or FIRST (1) for vehicles equipped with a manual transmission.
Turn the ignition to LOCK.
Place the transmission shift lever in PARK (P), or FIRST (1) for vehicles with a manual transmission.
Release the parking brake prior to towing.

Shifting Out of NEUTRAL
To shift out of NEUTRAL:

Set the parking brake and apply the regular brake pedal.
Shift the transmission to NEUTRAL (N) and turn the ignition to RUN with the engine off.
Press the button for the desired transfer case shift position (2HI, 4HI, AUTO 4WD or 4LO).
After the transfer case has shifted out of NEUTRAL the red light will go out.
Release the parking brake.
You may start the engine and shift the transmission to the desired position.
Excessively shifting the transfer case into or out of the different modes may cause the transfer case to enter the shift protection mode. This will protect the transfer case from possible damage and will only allow the transfer case to respond to one shift per 10 seconds. The transfer case may stay in this mode for up to three minutes.

NEUTRAL: Shift the vehicle's transfer case to NEUTRAL only when towing your vehicle.
Good luck and hope this answers your question.

'04 Trailblazer. Indicator shows drive but it's not in drive.


The transmission range (TR) switch is part of the park/neutral position (PNP) and backup lamp switch assembly, which is externally mounted on the transmission manual shaft. The TR switch contains four internal switches that indicate the transmission gear range selector lever position. The powertrain control module (PCM) supplies ignition voltage to each switch circuit. As the gear range selector lever is moved, the state of each switch may change, causing the circuit to open or close. An open circuit or switch indicates a high voltage signal. A closed circuit or switch indicates a low voltage signal. The PCM detects the selected gear range by deciphering the combination of the voltage signals. One of these circuits it what is causing your problem but I hope this helps you understand some.

Not a computer issue. Transmission has problems could be filter stopping up, which also means problems.

Vechile turns off while driving


Does it happen to occur when you maybe hit a bump? It sounds so much like a previous car I worked on he hs so many keys on the ring that when he hit a bump the weight of all the keys pulled on the switch and shut it off the only other way to find this is start the truck and start to shake wiring harnesses under the dash and under the hood it sounds like a loose connection in the primary ignition circuit
Please rate this post if it is helpful to you and contact me at fixincars@yahoo.com if I can be of any further help in this matter
