Car will not start or turn over at all unless the automatic shifter is fooled with then it still doesn't start at times???


There is a safety switch in the start system, generally located down at the transmission where the shift cable joins the shift leaver if you have to jiggle around the shift leaver that switch is having problems working right and needs to be replace, or cleaned and adjusted

Was driving it before church and parked, came out and it started but it wouldn't shift into gear, shifter will move but won't engaged


Sounds like your linkage has separated.... but, first check the transition fluid make sure it is full and use the correct type for your brand of car.... the linkage goes from the bottom of your shifter and hooks to the transmission...as you move the shifter in the car it selects a gear on the tyranny by physically moving a leaver... a lot of times they are cable or leavers but some are electric..

Automatic not changing gears


check the shifter mechanism for binding up and not moving freely into positions. Not starting in park but in neutral indicates something is out of alignment with the shifter. May just need cleaning and a bit of oil/grease to fix.

Chevy cavalier gear shifter


if it is s manual box remove the gear lever tower from the top of the box and see what damage was done to the bottom of lever and/or lever pivot pin in the tower. Remember normal gear boxes require a gentle shift to allow the syncro rings to work properly and if you want to do racing changes get yourself a specially built box.

Jeep wrangler 2005 automatic floor gear shifter is loose won't engage stuck in park


try pushing the knob down onto the shifter a little bit then try and shift. Sometimes if that knob is raised even a little bit it will be locked in park. Can't be 100% sure without seein it but worth a shot. Hope that helps you.

Loose column shifter


Look under dash where steering column is. Find the connection for the shift cable. see if the mount that the cable end connects to is loose. wiggle it. If it is there are 2 torx screws that mount the bracket to the shift tube that you need to tighten. I think they are a T-27 size bit. This is a common problem on fords. easy fix. I usually will take the screws out and use a thread locking compound in them to stop it from happening again.

2008 Saturn Vue Stuck In Park. The car starts fine however when you try to shift out of park the shifter is locked up and won't budge. You have to restart the car multiple times to get the shifter...


these have a safety system so the shifter won`t go into any gear unless the brake is pushed(indicating someone sitting in the drivers seat),if the brake lights aren`t working this indicates that the fuse that operates the shift lock solenoid and brake lights is not working and needs replacing.check the fuses and replace the fuse and things will probably return to normal.

Need to locate backup light switch on 1988 chevy 1500


I had the same problem. My backup lights wouldn't come on in when I put the auto. trans. shifter into the Reverse position. They WOULD come on briefly as I moved the shifter from Park position into Reverse, but would go off again when the shifter reached the Reverse detent. I got the solution from the Haynes service manual, in which the relevant switch is referred to as something like the neutral safety switch. Check on top of the steering column close to the firewall. Set the parking brake, then move the auto. trans. shifter into Neutral position. Get under the dash and rotate the neutral safety switch clockwise as far as it will go. Then move the shifter into the Park position, and your switch should be set. If the backup lights don't come on now when the shifter is put into Reverse position with the ignition switch 'on', there may be another problem.
