Hi Bryan,

If it's a 4WD then the transfer case could be in Neutral.

Other than that, I think some more detail will be necessary...

Best regards

Try gearing into a higher gear to see if the gear cog has gone.
if it is auto the sensor that actually tells the gears what to do make have gone,
this would mean that what you think you are doing is actually nothing

I have an Automatic 1994 Ford Explorer and the gear slector will not change out of park. This has happened before and I got it to move by jiggling the steering wheel and the gear selector. That isn't

the 1997 explore wont come out of park sometimes until you put your foot on the brake


its a safety feature in case your on a hill & for children if left in the car / wagon 4x4 it wont roll away on you

very smart really .

that\'s a floor shift not Colum shift but still might be the same . it still gets me to this day THAT LOL good luck

Buick gear shifter moves freely and wont shift gears

you can shift it at transmission by hand to neutral or park and have someone inside start the car and you manually put in gear under hood and drive it to shop or garage, wherever

2002 Windstar wont go into gear

These are common for the pump shaft splines stripping in the torque converter. The transmission will need to be removed to fix it. Before you condemn the trans, does the speedo move and the van doesn't or do you hear any grinding when you put it back into park? Or can you push the van in park (Broken CV shafts)?
