Check gear shift cable adjustment correct. loosen cable securing bolts at gearbox, make sure gearbox is in park. put gear selector lever in park and re tighten bolts at g/box. if this does not solve the problem, multi function switch on g/box could be faulty.

How to bypass neutral safety switch on Saab 9-5


You will have to look for the neutral lock out switch on the gear shift lever or linkage and replace it, you might be able to find it in the counsel or go under the car to find it. you could splice the wires together and bypass it but thats not a good idea

I have a 1990 Ford Taurus 3.0 V6 station wagon that has trouble starting.


I am not sure of the auto transmission sensor, but you are absolutely right, there is shift selector that tells the on board computer the car is in neutral or park. any other position and it will not start. I would say it would be located on the transmission where the shift cable hooks to the transmission. I can't remember weather it is on the outside or in the trans itself. It would make sense for it to be on the outside.
I hope I was of some help.

1997 Carolla- engine dies when shift to reverse or drive, starts again when put in park. Is this a transmission problem or starter/ignition problem?


There is a switch that only only allows you to start the engine in Park or Neutral. It sounds as if yours is faulty or has a bad connection. Finding it will be the problem.

How do i put my 4x4 on my 95 yukon......on park or neutral. and do i have to put my foot on the brake?


You can shift between 2Hi and 4Hi when the truck is moving. Just let off the gas and shift it. But in order to shift to Neutral or 4Lo you need to stop the truck and shift the transmission into neutral then shift the transfer case.

Gear Shift not shifting properly


Depending on whether it is a column shift or floor, you have to get the linkage loose enough to get the car in neutral, move the selector back to the proper setting, and tighten everything up.

If the car is not setting on a hill or incline, you should be able to move the shift levers by hand when you've loosened the linkage and move it until it is in neutral. Put on jack stands and chock the wheels that are on the ground.

I have a 1991 Buick Park Ave, my car will start but when I put in drive, reverse or neutral I can feel the transmission shift but it will not take off. Several times I put the car in neutral, rocked it...


I would first check to see if you have the proper transmission level of fluid. From your discription, it seems that the fluid is low. If it is full, you have some more major issues. Hope this helps you, Rick
