    check your neutral safety switch. the following is from autozone.com

    The circuit on newer cars with automatic transmissions has a neutral safety, or neutral start switch installed between the ignition switch and the starter. The ignition switch cannot operate the starter motor unless the transmission is in park or neutral.

    Late model vehicles with manual transmissions have a starter/clutch interlock switch that requires the clutch to be depressed to the floor.

    Neutral Safety Switch

    Normal operations of a neutral safety switch provides a quick check for the adjustment of the gear selector linkage.

    ?To do this, move the selector slowly until it clicks into the PARK position.
    ?Turn the ignition key to the START position.
    ?If the starter operates, the PARK position is correct.
    ?After checking the PARK position, move the lever slowly toward the NEUTRAL position until the lever drops at the end of the NEUTRAL stop in the selector gate.
    ?If the starter also operates at this point, the gearshift linkage is properly adjusted.
    ?This quick test also tests the adjustment of the neutral safety switch.
    ?If the engine does not start in either or both of these positions, the neutral safety switch or the gear selector linkage needs adjustment or repair.
    CAUTION
    Since you must work under the vehicle to adjust most shift linkages make sure you properly raise and support the vehicle before working under it. Also, wear safety glasses or goggles while working under the vehicle.

    A voltmeter can be used to check the switch for voltage when the ignition key is turned to the START position with the shift lever in PARK or NEUTRAL. If there is no voltage, the switch should be adjusted or replaced.

There is a switch at the base of your shifter that prevents starting when transmission is in gear. Your switch is loose or broken. Remove console to access switch for repair. If you have questions, please let us know.

Transfer case shifter is locked up in 2H on 4x4 montero sport 2002


Mine did the same thing so I removed the center console and then the boot around transfer case shifter and the shifter it self.
This is when I discovered a broken linkage that had wedged itself between the 4L & 4H shafts in the transfer case. I removed the broken parts and reassembled and it will shift between 2H & 4H but not 4L until the broken plastic linkage is replaced. Found your post while lookin for the replacement part so I thought I would try to help. Good Luck

2000 Montero Sport 3.5l V6, automatic transmission. After starting cold vehicle and shifting into drive, transmission does not immediately enage until after several seconds and then "bangs" into...


Well when you are in cold weather and after a high mileage. The Transmission solenoids fails when its cold and they get stuck for a moment and all i can say is that you warm your car for a while before you leave your house and thats good for the engine too and aslo will keep your car running for a long time. Good luck

You probably disconnected the battery and your idle adaptive memory was erased. You need to clean your throttle body. Look here for the solution. First post.
