Question about GMC Acadia

1 Answer

The button on the auto gear knob that allows you to go from park to drive has broken off. I have bought a 2nd hand complete shifter and I am wondering if it would be easier to just replace the knob or the whole shifter.

Good Evening, I'm sorry to hear your shift knob broke however it does sound like you are on the right track to a solution. As far as ease of repair I would tell you it is best to repair what you have instead of trying to put in an aftermarket one. In most cases it is an easier fix which most repair parts you can find at your local auto recycling yard (salvage yard/junk yard). Hope this helps. And if you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

You should definitely have to push th button to get from forward to reverse. If not the gate at the base of shifter has broken and will need to be replaced

Shifter button stuck


there should be 2 Phillips screws hold the shifter knob to the shaft. once you take out those screws it should just pop up. as far as I know there are no springs in the knob it's just a slide button. the rest of the parts are part of the shifter assembly.

Toyota harrier 98 model (OD off )check light on/off. Why?OD means over drive?


There should be a small pushbutton switch on your shifter, either on the center of the knob if it has the shifter on the steering wheel or if its on the center console, it should be to the side of the release button that you press when switching from park to drive. It means Over Drive is off and that will not allow to engage the last gear when driving. This is useful when hauling a heavy trailer but not good when driving normally cause it may cost you more fuel economy

Auto will not disengage from park.


ok, other than the obvious question of are you applying the brake before shifting my next would be does the gear shift move at all? If it does is there any resistance or not? If there is no resistance it is possible that the shift cable is broken. Also is the shifter on the column or in the center console? If it is in the center the plunger that allows the shifter to move may be stuck or broken. There is a clip that holds the handle on, remove the clip and ensure the button on the shifter handle is moving and pressing down on the nylon piece that "unlocks" the shifter. Lastly the problem could be with the "shift interlock" which is a cable that ties the shifter to the brake pedal. If the interlock is damaged it will prevent the vehicle from shifting from park. I hope i have helped in some way.

My car wont shift out of park


Check the brake pedal position sensor to see if it is lose or malfunctioning. Most late model cars will not allow you to move the gear shifter out of park unless the Brake Pedal is depressed and you are pushing a release button on the shifter. An emergency bypass on some cars will allow you to shift from park to Neutral with the CAR TURNED OFF and the key just turned to on. Try that also and if it allows you to move to Neutral you can start in neutral and then with brake held in you can shift back to Drive. If this doesn't work you may have an antitheft interlock preventing you from operating the shift lever or some linkage to release the shifter may have broken or come lose from a connector.

Went to park in my 2006 envoy. Shifter got stuck in neutral and the shifter button will not depress.


Same thing happened to me today(but while in drive!). had to crawl UNDER vehicle, driver side, behind the transmission where it narrows down, and the shifting rod (connected to your shifter in vehicle) came disconnected from what i assume was a gear knob on transmission. its basically a screw and nut holding the two together. ill temporarily replace it tomorrow until i can order correct screw and nut. hope this is same situation and helps. easy fix.

ps if you push the gear -knob all the way forwards under vehicle, that is in the Park gear.

GEO TRACKER AUTO shifter does not release from park


I found this online. Check to see if you have back brake lights. If not the fuse for them also triggers the gear release.
