There is a safety switch on the shifter to prevent starting the car in gear. The switch is either lose or needs to be adjusted. If you need help adjusting, please let us know.

Unfortunately you will be looking in the transmission. Either the shifter base button is worn but that usually affects all gears or the 5th gear shift fork is bad or the syncro has failed

My 2002 pontiac grand prix will not start unless u play with the gear shifter alot.what is the problem


Sounds like the sensor is not working on the gear shifter. It tells the ecu it is in park to allow the engine to start. That's where I'd start.

  1. I tried to find a

    If you go to your library you can look for free. Just not sure of location of of neutral safety switch for your year of car. In the back of motor manual is wire diagrams you will find switch there. Also GEO Prism is the same car.
  2. The last time I worked on a Prism it was a 1997 I found a bad wire connection at the shifter. Took 20 minutes to do repair and no parts.
  3. So I would check the switch in your console. Sometime they stick or a wire comes loose. Sometimes a little WD-40 shot to the switch helps.

Light in toyota corolla VE 98, automatic gear shifter is not working how to fix it?


you have to remove the screws (or bolts) inside the center console compartment. pry up the little ring around the shifter. pull up the e-brake and pull that whole assembly up. once removed there is a small 194 bulb located on the drivers side on the bottom. you should see the little black base. twist counterclockwise to remove. replace bulb and reinstall
