Question about 1999 Daewoo Nubira

1 Answer

Hi, I have a '99 Daewoo Nubira Eurowagon. Yesterday the car was running fine, but today I went to move the car and it won't change gears when the engine is running. But when the engine is off, it can change into any gear fine. There is a yellow light on the right side of dashboard saying "check". You can turn the car off, change into gear and then turn back on and the car will move. But it cannot change into any other gear once the engine is on. What's wrong?!

    Hi, don't know if I replied properly... new to this. But yes it is a floor shifter. With Reverse at top left. Then the next column is 1st and second, then 3rd and 4th, and then lastly 5th on top right.

    Hi, I popped the cover but there was no button under it or anywhere near the gear stick. Assuming I am looking in the right place....
    I looked all around it and there was no button or little thing to press.

Is this a floor shifter?

    look at the floor shifter for a little round or square cover and using something small like pick, pop the cover.
    under the cover is a little button that is part of the shift solenoid

    once the cover is removed, start the engine
    I will assuming you will still be unable to shift the vehicle
    now using something like that pick or a house key insert it into the hole where we removed the cover and now try to shift the vehicle

    if you can shift the vehicle now, then we are dealing with either a shift solenoid concern or a brake switch concern.... check to see if the brake lights work

    If you still cannot shift the vehicle with the button depressed and the engine running then we may be dealing with a transmission concern

    you found a little cover, smaller than a dime, and removed it?

Daewoo nubira transmission control module

Hi, the TCM is located at the passenger side kick panel (LHD), when you remove the kick panel you will see the ECU (engine control module) directly above it is the TCM. I hope this can help.
