I have a 95 gmc jimmy sle 4 wheel drive. The truck wont go into park i put a new neutral safety switch in and still same problem. Someone said asjust where and how do i adjust it???

Check all shift linkage under truck for loose bushings. Check also for bad transmission mount, engine mounts, bent linkage, etc. Also can be a problem inside transmission, often able to be fixed in the car by removing the trans lower pan to make repairs.

Had my 96 jimmy in 4 wd and in low gear now it wont go into park any ideas???

if your vehicle hasnt been in low for a while you could have bent the linkage gettin it in low. there is an adjustment bolt on the rod comin from the column.make sure non of the plastic grommets didnt fall out of the pivots this will put it out of adjustment.

My 98 gmc jimmy will not shift out of park

possibly the neutral safety switch connected to the brake pedal is bad. when you apply foot to brake , shouls hear a click with key in run position, this would be the safety solenoid retracting itself from shift linkage, allowing shift lever to move. try pumping rapidly, but easily the brake pedal to see if you can hear click, and or shift from park.

How do you adjust the shift cable on a 1995 gmc jimmy, wont go into reverse or park.

On the 1995 Jimmy, the shift cable can come loose on the mount on the side of the transmission where the cable meets the trans. When it slips, the alignment goes off and causes the driver to not be able to put the trans into park. If you take a long stick you can push the shift arm on the trans to the park position and your trans will go into park.....what you (and I) really need to know is how to take the shift cable mount apart and reset it.

GMC jimmy key stuck in ignition, steering column will not lock, electrical system working

It sound like your shifter linkage is worn and your ignition interlock is not making it into the park position. I'm not 100% sure on jimmies but my GMC Sierra could be adjusted on the steering column under the hood. It's just a rod through an eye with a bolt. Put the transmssion in park and loosen the bolt and twist the column until the indicator is in park, retighten the bolt.
