SOURCE: Shifting Out of Park Position

Look under the hood where the linkage meets the transmission. If your mechanic just replaced the linkage, he may have not replaced the pivot that hooks the linkage to the shifter lever that sticks out of the trans. Try lubing this pivot up. Also, there may be a bit of adjustment here to line up your shifter. Best idea: disconnect the link at the trans shift lever (at the trans), and work the shifter. If the shifter feels fine, then the link or the trans lever bushing may need attention. Lube it with WD-40.If the problems does not improve, look to see if there is any contamination on the pivots for the shifter assembly in the console. Coffee & soda spills will seize this up and make it hard to shift. Lube this with silicone spray. Hope this helps.

Is there a light in the center console of unidentified vehicle where you shift into drive? reverse, park?

Usually there is a light there fastened to the lower part of the gearlever and a mask as part of the gearlever position markings so it appears the selected position illuminates.
The models I have been associated with use a low wattage bulb of 1.5, 2.2 or 4 watts.

Gaining access for replacement can be a simple or a protracted affair. Sometimes it is a largely intuitive process and sometimes instructions are needed to prevent damage to delicate items of trim.

2003 Chevy Malibu back up light fuse location to be replaced.

Backup Lamps
The B/U LMP fuse #42 in the underhood junction block supplies ignition positive voltage to the park/neutral position switch. When the driver places the gear selector lever in the REVERSE position, the current flow is from the park/neutral position switch to the backup lamps. The backup lamps are grounded at G401 and G402.
Are you also having shifting problems ? If not , I can tell you it's not the fuse ! Wiring problem, the bulbs , park/neutral position switch !

Where is the neutral safety switch on a 96 camero

The park/neutral position switch prevents the car from being started when the transmission is in any gear other than Park or Neutral.. When the transmission is in Reverse (with the engine running), the switch completes the back-up light circuit, illuminating the back-up lights.


Fig. 1: After removing the console, you can access the park/neutral position switch.

Hope help with this (remember rated this post).
