Question about 1994 Geo Prizm

1 Answer

No battery, need to engage neutral!

Soon I will be donating this car anyway, but right now I need to move into a safer place(i.e roll into driveway). In order to do that I need to engage neutral, but I can't, it seems, without a battery to power things. Is there some sort of manual trip solution to this problem that anyone is aware of. Any help is appreciated.

Car wont start and rolls backwards even though it apears to be in park


Sounds like the shifter is stuck in reverse or drive since it will roll.
I would set the parking brake and have someone watch the shift lever on the transmission to see if it and the shifter inside is still connected.

No power backing up driveway


Check the gear box oil level....I'm thinking that you have a auto box....this should be done on level ground and with the engine running at idle speed....To check level correctly place your foot onto the brake hard and also select the parking brake....With the engine running, move the selector lever from park into reverse and then to neutral then to 'D', followed by the lower range gears and then moving up to 'D', and then to neutral again and then to reverse and back to neutral....Leave each position engaged for about one second....Leaving the engine running and the park brake engaged check that the gear box oil is at the correct level....It should be between the marks indicated on the red topped dip stick....When filling with Automatic Transmission Fluid (ATF) through the same tube where dip stick is located the engine should also be running and care taken not to over fill....Once at the correct level the vehicle should behave normally.

2000 toyota 4runner rear brake locked up, will go back, then neutral will roll little bit, then stuck, now in driveway, can not go anyway, please help!


You need to remove the rear wheels and the rotor/drums. You will find your problem in the parking brake shoes. You will need to replace these.

2000 Rodeo has intermittenly starting problems


It sounds as if your neutral safety start switch may be failing. This switch only allows for the safe start of an engine when the automatic transmission is in either park or neutral. It seems when you move around the gear selector you get it back to a spot where the switch allows the engine to start. Next time this happens while in park, try wiggling around the gear selector or place your foot on the brake (so you don't roll away) and place the transmission in to neutral. If it fires up you know to either adjust or replace the switch for the park position.

I hope this might have helped,
Tom
