SOURCE: I cant get the key

I cant get the key out or lock steering column and the automatic transmission shift lever locks up in park.
Now if I take the battery off every thing works fine.
This sure seems like a reset problem.I run the car by not having it in the locked column position and get the shifter to work by putting a key in the hole furnished
by chevy to bypass shift lock. thank you

It may be the 'actuator'. It is a rod that connects the lock cylinder to the ignition switch on the tilt wheel units. It is made of aluminum and often breaks as things become worn.

SOURCE: shift lever is loose and won't shift

Yes you can repair it your self, check under the dash where the trans cable hooks to the shift lever, where the eye of the cable hooks on there are two screws, if these are loose the truck will still shift but the free play makes slack and the cable will not move all the way. If this piece is not loose you will have to lower the steering column and check this shaft, they are know to split in two and with the column down they are easy to change.

I Have a 1990 F150 and it wont shift (auto) on the steering column. I am in need of either a diagram so I can replace the steering shaft tube or any other ideas anyone else would have. It will start up...


some steering column shifters required the lever to be pulled back to the wheel before the shift could be made (a safety thing). Check for seized bushings or worn bushings that is preventing the movement

My 97 ford ranger has an electrical problem. The windshield wipers and washer fluid are on full speed when I start the truck and will not shut off.. pulled the fuses for temp solve... please help


Hi, the likely problem is a failed switch. Remove the switch according to instructions below and then start the truck again. If the wipers stay off, replace the switch. If they still come on, please get back to me.


REMOVAL & INSTALLATION See Figures 1 and 2

  1. Disconnect the negative battery cable. Remove the steering wheel.
  2. On vehicles equipped with tilt wheel, remove the tilt lever.
  3. On vehicles equipped with tilt wheel, remove the steering column collar by pressing on the collar from the top and bottom while removing the collar.

Fig. Fig. 1: To remove the tilt column control lever, simply rotate it counterclockwise until removed

  1. Remove the instrument panel trim cover retaining screws. Remove the trim cover.
  2. Remove the 2 screws (#3 in Fig 2) from the bottom of the steering column shroud. Remove the bottom half of the shroud by pulling the shroud down and toward the rear of the vehicle.
  3. If the vehicle is equipped with automatic transmission, move the shift lever as required to aid in removal of the shroud. Lift the top half of the shroud from the column.
  4. On 1991 automatic transmission equipped models, disconnect the selector indicator actuation cable by removing the screw from the column casting and the plastic plug at the end of the cable.
  5. Remove the 2 self tapping screws (#3 in Fig 2) that retain the combination switch to the steering column casting. Disengage the switch from the casting.
  6. Disconnect the 3 electrical connectors, using caution not to damage the locking tabs. Be sure not to damage the PRNDL cable.
  7. Installation is the reverse of the removal procedure. Torque the combination switch retaining screws to 18-27 inch lbs. (2-3 Nm).

I have a 2001 f150 with the 4.6l engine. The shifter lever does not go into park or 1st gear due to the slop. I checked the 2 #30 torx bolts everyone says is the problem but mine were tight. Any ideas.


Similar to a problem I had on a 1979 F150 Bronco. One of the shifter arms came loose from the shift assembly on the steering column under the hood.

My 95 ford f150 wont go into park, reverse is park all the gears are mixed up??


Most common problem for this is in the steering column there is a tube and pin assembly. This assembly breaqks over time and causes the column shift lever to not sit in the right spot or to not even go into park at times. You will need to remove the lower part of the steering column and locate the tube and pin assemblyonce you remove the assembly you have to line it up and slide the pin in the tube. Bolt it back down to the steering column and make sure it all lines up with the indicator and you are back in business. The fFORD part #s are F7DZ-7R264-AA PIN OR PLUNGER ANDF57Z-7212-A TUBE assembly. I hope this helps.

Digital Transmission Range Sensor
The digital transmission range (TR) sensor is located on the outside of the transmission at the manual lever. The digital TR sensor completes the start circuit in Park and Neutral, the back-up lamp circuit in Reverse and the neutral sense circuit (4x4 only) in Neutral. The digital TR sensor also opens and closes a set of four switches that are monitored by the PCM to determine the position of the manual lever (P, R, N, D, 2, 1).

Overdrive button on extend cab ford f150


Problem Solved Look No Longer. Overdrive switch fuse blown, auto door locks not working, fuse after fuse after fuse, chasing wires grrrr. Remove the steering column cover (3 screws from the bottom) opens like a **** shell. Your switch is located on the shift lever, the wire for the switch is routed through the handle and comes out where the shift lever mounts to the column. Look very closely at the wire in this area. Most likely rubbed through. MR
