There is a shortage somewhere in the panel where I change my gears, my reverse lights will come on and then go off but if I jiggle the gear shift they will light back up. How can I repair this problem?

It sounds like a bad connection or the switch needs adjustment,to the backup lites.I think the switch is under the panel or where the center console is and the Emergency brake lever.,but first check on the transmission it may be located there! The neutral saftey sw. and back up lites sw. may be in the same switch housing! There is a cable that selects the transmission into gear.

Check your brake lights, if the system doesn't get a brake lights on signal it will not release park, it is called the park lock system.

Replace your Transmission Range Sensor (Also called "Neutral Safety Switch") It is located on top of the transmission housing under the shift lever where the shift cable hooks up.

The neutral safety switch probably needs to be replaced. It is located at or near the end of the shift linkage.

Car is parked in my garage. It will start but not shift out of park.


caused by a gear-shift allinement, but should be covert by waranty.
P.S. Temp. solution is to turn your vehicle off, jiggle you gear shift and restart, which should allow you to change gears again.

Grinding when in reverse and tries bogging down at lights


stop shifting so hard. your reverse gear is the same exact gear as your first, so if you shift hard and grind that gear a little then reverse will be harder to get into. you probably need your transmission rebuilt the harder your engine has to work the more its going to bogg down

1995 crown vic gear problems/gear shift wont lock


if the shifter is loose and sloppy feeling then the shift cable bracket has come loose under the dash at the steering wheel. remove the lower panel under the steering wheel so you can see under the dash then get flash light and look while jiggling the shifter. you should be able to see the cable and bracket. if the bracket is loose then tighten the bolts. note this bracket is at the steering colum.
