The gear shifter on my 1998 Pontiac SE coupe will not unlock so I can take the car out of park


Do you have column or floor shifter ?
All automatic transaxle models use an electric park lock system. Within the housing assembly, a lock cylinder is connected to an actuator which rotates and engages on the electric park lock solenoid. When the floor-shift lever is not in the park position, the actuator disengages from the electric park lock solenoid slider. This allows the lock cylinder to move to the lock position. With the shift lever in PARK and the lock cylinder in LOCK, the actuator cam is positioned against the electric park lock solenoid slider. This prevents the shift lever from shifting out of the PARK position.
The column-shift automatic transaxle model uses a flexible cable actuator instead of an electric park lock system. One end of the cable is attached to the gate assembly. The other end of the cable is attached to the column mounted housing assembly. This system functions similarly to the floor-shift ignition lock system.
The manual transaxle model uses a push button lock cylinder. A clutch start switch is used. The clutch pedal must be pressed before the engine will crank. Refer to Park Lock System Check .
CAN you turn the key on ?
The gear selector does not shift out of PARK with the brake pedal depressed and the ignition switch in RUN.

How do I replace shifter cable


Before starting this repairprocedure, read this caution: This procedure comes with a warning. there is a supplemental restraint system (SRS), known as airbags. to avoid accidental deployment of the airbag and possible injury, always disconnect the battery ground (negative) cable, then the positive battery cable and wait two minutes before working near an of the impact sensors, steering column, or instrument panel. Do not use any electricial test equipment on any of the airbag system wires or tamper with them in any way. There are two types of shift cables; colum shift cable and floor shift cables. the rest of the procedure depends on which type of shift cable you have.

My 1993 Gmc Sierra 2500 automatic first gear shifts hard also from park to drive others gears are smooth i have overdrive


The gear shift lever indicators tell you what gear you have an automatic transmission in on your vehicle. The shift solenoid tells the transmission when to shift gears and what gear to shift into. Newer model automatic transmissions have electronic shift solenoids that are activated and change gears based on the speed the vehicle is traveling. Troubleshooting either one of these transmission components is relatively easy if you know a little about automobile mechanics. With the right tools, you can determine whether the transmission shift solenoid is having a problem. Gear shift indicator problems can be determined simply by moving the gears into their designated position.
Transmission Shift Solenoid
  • 1 Raise each corner of the vehicle up with the car jack and place jack stands under the frame. Make sure the car is raised high enough so you can work under the car freely.
  • 2 Slide the drain pan under the transmission fluid drain plug. Remove the drain plug with a ratchet and socket, and let all the fluid drain out of the transmission. Remove the transmission pan bolts with a ratchet and socket. Pull the pan away from the bottom of the transmission, revealing the transmission shift solenoid.
  • 3 Wipe off the shift solenoid with a shop towel. Disconnect one of the two plugs that attaches to the shift solenoid. Turn the knob on the volt meter to the ohms setting, so resistance can be measured. Set the volt meter on 200.
  • 4 Take the black lead of the volt meter and touch the negative battery terminal wire. Take the red lead of volt meter and slide the tip into the terminal plug you just disconnected from the shift solenoid. Look at the reading you get on the digital display of your volt meter. Determine if the reading is between 12 and 25. Readings below 12 or above 25 tell you that the shift solenoid is not working. Reattach the plug to the shift solenoid and pull the second plug attached to the solenoid. Perform the same procedures on this plug wire. Replace the transmission shift solenoid after determining it is bad.
Gear Shift Indicator
  • 1 Move the gear shift into the desired gear. Look at the gear labels and the arrow, or other indicator, to see if the gear shift indicator lines up with the selected gear.
  • 2 Move the gear lever to another gear and look to see if the indicator lines up with the selected gear. Misalignment of the arrow will tell you if there is a problem. Moving the gear shift to "neutral" but having the indicator show the transmission is in "drive" tells you the gear shift indicator is not working properly.
  • 3 Try each gear position to determine how much misalignment is in the indicator. Slide under the car and check for a loose gear shift cable. Check all the gear shift cable connections to ensure they are all tight and are not missing. Tighten any loose gear shift cable clamps or bolts. Replace the gear shift cable if you find that this is causing the misalignment with the gear shift indicator.

Automatic Shifting Lever difficulties


Don't do it yourself. You would have to have the car on a hoist to do the work, as so much of what has to be done is out of sight and out of reach even if you were to jack up the car on stands. I had the shifter cable changed on my 1998 Intrepid ES, which had never seen snow or ice (I'm from Ontario), as all winters were spent in Florida. Besides changing the cable, the interlock has to be adjusted, and without the proper instruction, you would have nothing but problems, and probably would not be able to turn your key in the ignition switch. The total cost (at the dealer) for parts and labour cost me $286.16 U.S. tx. incl.The only good manual to explain even part of the procedure is the Chrysler shop manual ($96.00 ). Get the cable changed before it seizes up altogether, or you break the shifter lever etc. trying to force it. Hope this helps you. Regards Al Waters
