Chrysler town& country modle 1997 transmission cannot shift into L and 3


Could be a couple things. It could be that the transmission selector switch is bad,or is not making a good connection at the connector.Or,it could be in the steering column,that the selector/shifter control is broken.

I have a 97 kia sportage with 160,000.miles ,stick shift, ......when shifting from 4th to 5th its hard to get into 5th and ill put in 3rd my mistake...is this a ezay fix ?


Sounds like ther is a selector problem in the gear box. Take off the top, where the gear lever goes in and have a look. if there is anything wrong there the box will have to come out.

Impala won't shift into park


to get the key out just set the parking brake and put in neutral, but i agree with the first solution probably bad selector cable or linkage.

I have a land rover it starts but it wont move!!!!!


hi centa, sounds to me like the brake release on the gear selector, when you put your foot on the brake it releases the gear selector peg so you move the gear selector, if you can remove the top cover have a look down and see if you can see the lock peg moving, if it is, it sounds to be more like an internal problem. hope it is something simple.

94 honda accord hard to shift from park


You seem to have two (2) separate problems one may be a BAD brake light switch this switch is mounted at the top of BRAKE pedal and control the locking mechanism on gear shifter(safety component-for example if a kid is sitting in seat with vehicle running he/she will NOT be able to put vehicle in gear without stepping on brake). The other problem is a BAD shifter cable-this cable moves the selector in the transmission when you move shift knob. Good luck and thanks for using FIX YA
