Question about 1997 Mazda 626
I have a 97 mazda 626, 4 cylinder automatic. i drove it to work and it was fine untill i went to park. i shifted into park and it started going in reverse. no matter what gear i put it in it still went in reverse i then let the shift lever in park and turned it off. after that it rolling foward as if in nuetral. now it wont start at all. the windows lights and radio all work. i have tried jumping it already. what could be the problem?
Based on the information you have supplied, the car is not shifting in to the correct position. So when you try starting the car , it will not allow the starter to crank thinking it is not in park (which it is not...in reverse) I suspect that the shifter cable from lever to the transmission has become stretched over time and use. It can be adjusted at the transmission to shift cable hook up. The connection at the lever base could have also get disconnected. Try that first
