This is a broken shift cable, it's an easy repair to do. go to the ford dealer parts department and they can get you the part and help you with information on how to install it.by the way the cable is not under the car its part of the shifter assembly.

What makes up the governor assembly in a Chrysler 300M


All the parts you listed are internal to the transmission. The cable is external - it runs from the shifter lever to the range selector lever on the transmission. Their analysis doesn't sound right though. If the cable is broken, the shifter should move freely as you described. But that (broken cable and bent lever) happened AFTER the problem of the transmission being stuck in reverse. Your efforts to unstick probably bent the shifter and broke the cable. It would seem something was jammed before you tried to get out of reverse, possibly inside the transmission.

Your shifter cable sounds like it separated from the transmission or shifter or just broke. you are probably stuck in a moving gear so the neutral safety switch is disabling the ignition.

no not related in the transmisson the is a forlk that moves in and out when you pull the gear shifter toward you that allows you to move from each gear as you release the gear shift the forlk is released and this is what keeps the car in a certain gear, then this becomes miss lined the gear indacator will be off usually by one gear.( eample selctor shows D but its actually in N) the forlk is held in place by a screw with a sleve and when the sleve cracks or breaks the forlk will get stuck or locked so you can't move from gear to gear unfortunitly this is internal of the transmisson and not a back yard repair

My renault megane automatic is stuck in reverse and won't start


Hi all,
I have a 2002 Renault Megane 1.6 Convertible and experienced exactly the same fault. Needed a team effort but we found a very easy quick fix to this problem. If you take the plastic cover off from under the gear shifter, you will notice a release button covered by a rubber cover. Pressing this release button allows the gear shifter to move from its locked/jammed position. (This is not the fix but it helps with the fix).
If you are fortunate enough to have a 2nd person available, have them poke their head under the bonnet to watch the Gearbox cable move....while you are shifting the gear shifter inside the vehicle. Your partner will see that a cable with a plastic locking device (right hand side of the engine cover) has popped off the shifter for the transmission. Move the shifter until you can physically put the plastic locking device back on the shifter mechanism and your all good to go. No need for that new gearbox that you might have been quoted on!! An easy fix that I am surprised no mechanically minded professional/body in the world has volunteered the solution to. I wonder why????

Good luck!
