If it's a no crank condition, put your foot on the brake, shirt the gear selector to neutral and see if the engine will start. If it starts in neutral, you might have a faulty neutral safety switch which is located on the transmission. Very easy to change, but don't remove the steel alignment tool until you have it bolted to the transmission, Good luck, Gary

Gear shift stuck in park


Could be the brake switch, or the shift lock solenoid. You may be able to take the shifter out of park by unlocking the key switch but not turning the switch to the on position. The components would need to be tested.

2005 taurus wont go into park


teh difference in neutral and park is the ratcheted gear that keeps the car from rolling in park. Check the lock gear on the tranny to make sure it engages and the car does not move. I think there is a connection to hte break pedal too to keep from going into park inadvertently without being stopped nad break pedal pushed. Look at those to prerequisits foror a clue...

Gmc envoy 04, the gear shift slides up and down but the gear did not engage. another word, the xuv won't move


The shift cable probably has broken, usually the ring at the end breaks. Below is a diagram that shows the cable (it is item #7)

Wont shift out of park once car is started


I am guessing this hasn't always been the case but just in case I will tell you many cars will not come out of park unless the Break in fully pressed as a safety precaution. I don' t know if that will help you or not but I hope its something that simple for you.
Good luck.

Try putting your transmission in neutral and slowly shifting the 4wd selector to each position but you have to wait a few seconds between selsctions as it has to go through your vehicles computer, shifting to fast will cause your symptoms. I hope this helped you out. Roger
