Recall Reason POWER TRAIN:AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION:PARK/NEUTRAL START SWITCH Recall Date AUG 06, 1998 Model Affected STRATUS Potential Units Affected 685000 http://www.internetautoguide.com/auto-recalls/09-int/1998/dodge/stratus/index.html
Recall SummaryVEHICLE DESCRIPTION: PASSENGER VEHICLES EQUIPPED WITH AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS. THE ADJUSTMENT OF THE CABLE CONNECTING THE CONSOLE SHIFTER MECHANISM TO THE IGNITION KEY CAN CAUSE A TRAPPED KEY CONDITION WHICH CAN RESULT IN A LOW FORCE REQUIRED TO DEPRESS THE SHIFT BUTTON. A COMBINATION OF APPLYING A MIS-ADJUSTED RELEASE BUTTON WITH A LOW FORCE ATTEMPT TO SHIFT OUT OF PARK WITH THE KEY IN THE LOCKED POSITION, CAN BREAK THE CONNECTING PIN IN THE SHIFTER.

ConsequenceIF THIS HAPPENS, THE "IGNITION-PARK" INTERLOCK SYSTEM WILL BE NONFUNCTIONAL.

RemedyDEALERS WILL INSPECT FOR PROPER OPERATION OF THE SYSTEM. ANY VEHICLES THAT ARE NOT FUNCTIONAL AFTER THE INSPECTION WILL HAVE THE SHIFT MECHANISM AND CABLE REPLACED WITH A "SELF-ADJUSTING" DESIGN.

I have a 1998 Dodge Grand Caravan that will not shift out of park. The shifter moves perfectly and it goes into Rev, nuet and drive perfectly but it will not release the park. What could cause that?


Do you feel the shifter click when shifting or is it smooth. Clicking would be an internal transmission problem. Smooth would be a broken shifter cable.

Key will not turn


Make positively sure that the transmission shifter is fully in park. If you can move the shifter without turning the key then it is not locked in park. If you can move it try shifting to neutral and see if key will turn. Also, try turning steering wheel hard in both directions banging it against the column lock while trying to turn the key.

Ignition key gets stuck and car won't start


you might need to replace ignition key cylinder assy and replace current key, now, sometimes if this is a automatic transmission it might have problem with shifter interlock cable try moving shifter from park to first and back to park and try removing key again, but if key gets stuck and car won't start, does the key turns? does the engine cranks? are you using the correct key?

Can't get the key out of the ignition.


You probably need to figure out the problem with the shifter. It has to think it's securely in Park before it will release the key. Try shoving forward on the shift lever while it's in Park as you try to remove the key.
