When I turn the ignition switch to start the vehicle I often cannot shift the stick shift out of Park. If I immediately try to switch gears after starting the engine it usually works but if I leave it more...


ok the safety feature on an auto gearbox is that the gear select has a solinoid lock on the shift & you norm have to start engine first before you can select drive now if the engine is running & not allowing you to select a drive then for some reason the solinoid is losing its signal or going faulty or even the shaft needing a little lube IE: wd40 now my volvo won't even allow me to take the key out untill its in park hope this helps

Ford focus won't turn over ,was fine this morning parked up now won't start getting whinning sound from side of engine


If the temperature is low, then the engine might have struck up. You need to give heat and then try starting. If you still face the problem, then open the front and check if any wires have been cut off or else call or an mechanic to solve the problem,

Thanks

1990 Ford Thunderbird won't start


I take it as the car starts but it won't function well in drive and disables you from operating it.

Check the drive shaft as well as your torque converter and universal joints for alignment before you assume it's the transmission.

See from the torque { turning } of the parts to get the gearing to move the car. Any one of those could make horrible noises if they're not in proper alignment.

They work in close / direct conjunction with your cars transmission that all play vital and parts in allowing you to put it in gear to drive it.

Can't shift into reverse.


There is a brake lamp switch located on the brake pedal itself, this also works as the shift lock release.
