2001 pontiac Aztck wont go into gear


The problem with mine was the gear shifter lock solenoid was broke. Inside the cup holder (the one closest to seats) is a slide door about a !/2" wide by 2" long. slide that up and inside you will see a white disc. With a tool that can reach it, pull it towards the passenger seat and it will allow you to push the gear shifter button in to shift. This is a temporary fix and will have to be repeated each time you want to put car in gear.

Cannot push button in on gear shift


You need to have someone or two to push the car to get the pressure off. If you are facing downhill have them push the front end, if uphill push the back. Release parking brake first because that will keep it from moving. After pushing a few inches you should be released and can shift but be carefull you don't run anyone over (go for neutral with foot on brake) Hope this helps.

Shift lock button broke off and the vehicle is locked in park and unable to shift into gear.


This is replaceable but you should be able to put a screw driver into the broken off part and still push the engagement button for some ghetto shifting.

I have a 99 ford ranger 5 speed and my gear shift freely moves without pushing the clutch. What will cause that to happen


If the gear shift moves freely and the transmission is turning, I would say the shift lever is not connected to anything, or something inside the trans is broke.
If the trans is not turning, something happened to the clutch.

1995 dodge ram 1500 I need instructions on how to shift out of 4-wheel drive.


well not sure what style shifting it has. if its the floor shifter to select. you need to have the truck in neutral first before changing the 4wd. same thing with push button shifting on the newer trucks. it just works easier for the parts to move not being in gear. if it wont work with the shifter then you might have something that is broke or jammed.
