My on the column shift knob(with overdrive)on my 98 ram1500van is handing off and needs replacing

I think you need to replace the shifter in order to get switch, i way to find out is to look and the bottom of the switch where the wires connect and if there is a connector that unplugs from the switch then you are able to replace just the switch but if wires go into switch then shifter needs to be replaced.

Replace shift lever and now gears are stuck I removed the shifting lever and still stuck, what did I do wrong? please help!!!

I do not know the particular details of Intrepids, but in most modern automatic vehicles there is an electric lockout gate that will not let you pull the lever out of park UNLESS you are stepping on the brake, or in some cars, unless it is turned on. There is a good possibility that you forgot to reattach the cable that powers this gate, in the bottom of the shifter assembly, when you reassembled the shifter lever.

2004 Intrepid transmission/coulumn shift problems

The shifter cable is adjustable in the column. Remove the column covers and see if you can adjust the cable. You problem is with the cable.

I have a 98 chevy cavalier 2.2L and need to replace shifter cable how difficult is it?

Kind of a pain in the neck - especially if you are not real inclined..

You have to take apart portions of the console to get at the cable where it connects to the shifter.. And disconnect the old cable at the shifter and at the trani linkage under-neath..

Not a real fun job..

Have a great day !

I have a 97 intrepid and also had problems shifting in to park, the problem turned out to be the body to frame isalator bushings were bad .these rubber bushings are under the car mounted to a U shaped frame member that help hold the engine and transmission in place once the bushings go bad the transmission shifter cable becomes miss-alligned and cannot move properly

Hard to move Gear Shifter in a 2000 Dodge Intrepid ES

I had the same problem after my car went into a transmission shop for some service. This might be the solution, it was with my car. Check the transmission shift cable. When mine finally failed, it was filled with rust.
You may be able to simply lubricate it somehow with something like WD40, but I'm not sure if it would work. If all else fails, you can have the shift cable replaced, which is what I had to do with my car after driving it for 2 years with that problem. By then I had worn out and warped the shifter and had to replace that too, as well as drive it around for a week without being able to get the transmission into park.
Good luck! If you have to take it to a shop, just tell them that your shift cable is going bad and you want them to make sure.

I am having trouble with my speedometer not working occasionally and now my seat belt light is coming on sometimes too. Is this the instrument panel cluster? Or something else? 1998 Dodge Neon. Backstory is as follows: -We take very good care of it and have one dedicated mechanic. -It has only had two owners; my parents and I. -We replaced the battery 2 months ago. -Mechanic checked to make sure the speedometer sensor was working. -We have had issues with the radio for years where it will randomly turn on and off, typically brought on by a stuffed trunk OR wet weather. -The speedometer works until we hit a bump and then the needle flies up and down or sometimes just stops working all together. -Mechanic has made mention of there being some Chrysler specific battery cable that is a smaller side cable and it is not in good condition. -Currently, my problem is that I can't find an old 1998 Dodge Neon in the salvage yard because yards are doing a lot of 2002 and newer vehicles and automatically crushing the others. The meat and potatoes of my question is what direction do I go in? And what of these symptoms ties to each other? And will adding new solder to the points on the panel fix it or is it something else? I'm trying to find least expensive to most expensive options and I'm rather handy but can't drop an engine or transmission or anything so keep this in mind. My handiness ends at resoldering the pins BUT I do have a mechanic I trust, but I fear that maybe I'm not combining symptoms properly. I have the money to repair an item I KNOW is wrong but not to chicken hunt around for problems.
