SOURCE: Automatic Gear Shifter Light Burned Out

hi.t thing to do firstly is check your fuses under bonnet and then check the fuses inside the car which are mostly under the dashboard and are easy to get to.
It could be that one of your other fuses has blown and caused this to short circuit.
Check all the fuses throughout and if they are all ok except the one that lights up the gears your in,then change that one.
It might not be that the bulb has blown at all.
If this all fails,then you will have to go through the process of taking out the centre concule which is or should only be clipped into place by self tapping screws which should just pop out with a flat ended screw driver and are easy to push back into place with your thumb.
Hope this has helped.

SOURCE: automatic transmission is stuck in 2nd gear (limp mode)

most newer vehicles  have transmission control modules,that go to a default of 2nd or 3rd gear when they go bad!  I had a 91 plymouth stuck in 3rd gear because of this module! could be your problem!    when mine went out, it smelled like something electrical burned inside the the passenger cabin! I would check all the electrical connections on the transmission first    good luck

SOURCE: what does the plus/minus button on the chevy malibu shifter do?

Hi there,
I suppose its a sports mode function where the + enables you to upshift and the - to downshift.
Try using this mode when you are driving as you might like it if you used to drive manual cars before...
Cheers

This situation sounds like multiple problems. The can't shift out of park is the brake shift interlock. When this happens, turn the key to accessory and then shift to neutral. Then you can start the truck.

Problem is the shifter assembly--the interlock solenoid is not serviceable, you have to buy the whole shifter assembly. The other problem(shift indicator) not matching the position the selector is in, you need to replace the inhibitor switch, a.k.a the range switch. I believe these are dealer items only.

Hope helpful with this information.

Is there a light that looks like a gear illuminated on the instrument cluster? Other than not shifting out of first gear, does everything else seem to be functioning correctly (such as radio, speedometer, etc.)?

Hi i have a 2006 1.6 ford focus automatic,gear lever gets stuck. will not select from park to drive.have to put screw driver in access next to gear lever. to shift gear lever from park to drive positi


it could be that the ignition lock and/0r the brake pedal sensor that unlock (allows you to move the shifter) are/is not working correctly or has failed. You will have to check both those elements as well as the cable beneath the consul covering and the solenoid that pulls the cable.

My 1998 Porsche Boxster automatic gear console face light doesn't turn on . Why does stay without light?


You probably have a loose wire to the gear console switch, or a bad board somewhere. Check to see that you have voltage going to the lights in the console.

you need a transmission fluid and filter changed.because if filter stopped up.transmission fluid little thicker in cold climate make it hard circulate through filter.when engine and fluid get warmer fluid get thinner where it can circulate through filter cause transmission to shift correctly.
