It is not a problem. Amanti is equipped w/driver adaptive system = continually adjusts to varying driving habits, e. g gentle take-off vs. fast or city driving vs hi-way. This optimizes engine power while being good on gas. Feature is common among luxury cars, incl. Mercedes.

Why won't key turn in ignition switch?


Before you do anything else. Check whether the gear shift is in neutral or park. If it still can't turn you may have to shift your gear shift several time.

2005 Amanti. Where is the neutral safety switch?


I have no idea what an Amanti is, but for column shifted cars, NSS is usually on bottom of steering column, on the top. For console shifted cars, the switch can be inside the console. Some cars have the switch mounted on the side of the transmission. If you buy a cheap shop manual (highly recommended) it should tell you all about this.

How do i remove the gear shifter on a 2005 kia amanti


you need to first remove the woodgrain trim pieces to get access from the top start by the cup holder and work your way to the dash. then you need to remove the driver's knee bolster and then you can take the side panels off. if you follow the side panels twords the seats you'll see a seam you can pry there to start removal. you'll also have to pull out the armrest box. I can't remember if there are screws in it or it just pops out. you'll also have to remove the rear trim piece out also. These center consoles are not 1 piece so you have a lot of tear down time.

  • GEAR SELECTOR LEVER - INCREASED EFFORT TO SHIFT FROM DRIVE TO PARK
Publication Date: November 1, 2004
FORD: 2002-2005 Explorer, Mountaineer ISSUE: Some 2002-2005 Explorer 4dr/Mountaineer vehicles, may require a greater effort to move the gear selector lever (shift lever) from drive to park. This may be due to a time delay with the brake shift interlock (BSI) pin retraction.
ACTION: To service, replace the BSI switch. Refer to the following Service Procedure.
SERVICE PROCEDURE
  1. Remove the two (2) fasteners supporting the instrument panel knee bolster from below the steering column and remove the cover (Figure 1).

    tb7934b.gif
    Figure 1 - Article 04-22-12

  2. Remove the three (3) fasteners supporting the steering column lower shroud and remove the cover (Figure 2).

    tb7935b.gif
    Figure 2 - Article 04-22-12

  3. Remove the three (3) wiring bundle carrier fasteners from the bottom of the steering column to allow movement while removing the BSI switch. It may be necessary to release the connectors from the multifunction switch (Figure 3).

    tb7936b.gif
    Figure 3 - Article 04-22-12

  4. Remove the BSI fasteners (T-30 on the side and T-20 on the bottom) (Figure 4).

    tb7938a.gif
    Figure 4 - Article 04-22-12

  5. Pull the BSI tab on the bottom of the column downward to help free the BSI from the column housing.
  6. Break the two (2) side tabs off the BSI by the white wiring connector (Figure 5).

    tb7940a.gif
    Figure 5 - Article 04-22-12

  7. Push the locking tab on the white connector towards the wiring to release the connector from the BSI. Be careful not to damage the connector or wiring. If the connector does not free easily, a very small flat screwdriver may be used to help lift the locking tab (Figure 6).

    tb7941a.gif
    Figure 6 - Article 04-22-12

  8. Connect the wiring to the new BSI. Ensure all clips are fully engaged to prevent the connector from pulling free.
  9. Reinstall the BSI onto the steering column and reinstall fasteners (Figure 7).

    tb7942a.gif
    Figure 7 - Article 04-22-12

  10. Check BSI function. With the key in the accessories or run position, press the brake pedal. The BSI pin should retract on brake application, and spring up one (1) second after releasing the brake pedal. Repeat several times.
  11. Reinstall fasteners to connect wiring bundle carrier to the steering column. Make sure all connections to the multifunction switch unit are secured properly.
  12. Reassemble steering column in reverse order. Ensure rubber gap hider around shift lever is properly seated on the shroud.
  13. Cycle the shift lever from park to drive and drive back to park several times to verify improved shift effort.

My 2005 Dodge Neon has started to stall at odd times when I am trying to park or when I shift to reverse. I have also had problems with my key sticking in the ignition switch.


Hi- I have one of these -
First off get a new key made and that will help.

when getting ready to exit the vehicle push the gear selector all the way forward - a little extra effort and then remove the key - to fix have the cable adjusted

as for the shutting off - replace the air filter -and spark plugs if you have not done so in the paste year.

Best of it

Gear shift is locked. we can only shift the car


The automatic transmissions on these vehicles are known to die early in the life of the car and Volvo is well aware that the vehicle has a dud auto transmission. The symptoms you have mentioned are an indication that the transmission has had it. It's basically just running in limp mode now.

You don't say what mileage this vehicle has clocked up but even low mileage vehicles have had to have the entire transmission replaced due to failures like yours. You also, no doubt, have a transmission alert showing on the dash.

The bad news is that a replacement automatic transmission will now be necessary and this will be costly. Even then, with these cars, you could experience another transmission failure after just another 30000 miles or so of driving.

02 dakota wont shift from 4hi to 2 hi


Try commanding the drive ranges while in netural cycling them. This may normalize the controller that senses the position from the encoder motor assembly. There maybe a procedure for that in a service manual.
