1997 Toyota camry won't start or come out of park. What can I do?


There is a shift lock button located next to shifter. Look for a small cover and remove it. You may use flat head screw driver if you don't have shift lock tool. These will free you shifter. Try starting on neutral using break.

Where is the fuse for the gear shifter on a 1997 Honda Accord Station Wagon EX


First, what is exactly happening? as there is no fuse for Gear shifter.

Is the car not going out of park? If so, then check the Brake switch. Brake has to be depressed which operates the brake switch sending signal to the gear shifter to unlock so it can be shifted. If Brake switch is okay then only a mechanical obstruction is preventing the shifter operation. For this you will have to take of the cover on the gear shifter to see what is fouling.

My 1997 Chevy Cavalier automatic transmission is stuck in neutral and the shifter just glides from park, won't engage in any gears.


If the shift handle moves extremely freely (more than normal), changes are that the shift cable has become disconnected from the shift lever. This would explain the indicator not moving out of neutral.
You will need to access the shift lever by removing the console cover. Once you access the shifter check the cable connection to the level. If the cable is broken, it will need replacement. If the cable clip has broken or fallen off, it will need to be reattached.

My 03 Nissan Altima will not shift into P. It wil show that it's in reverse when I'm in park. When I go to reverse it will shift into neutral and so on. I think I need a new shifter cable clip. But I'm not...


Hi.You still can get key out by pressing the secret button near the shifter.Then you have to check adjustment nut It locates on AT at the coupling of cable and transmission shifter.There must be 5mm hole it must be aligned in P (or N i forgot) range.Just need to lose 12 mm nut,put gear shifter in P ,insert 5mm drill bit,then retight cable nut.

My 1997 ford taurus wont shift out of park. The shifter seams to be stuck, it wont move. The shifter is on the steering wheel not the floor.


This is often a switch located on the brake pedal lever. The car requires you to press the Brake pedal before shiftting out of Park. You lose the signal when a foot hits or breaks this part. Look under the dash for the part and fix it.

Transmittion dose not shift is the shift


It's inside the transmission. I believe that it's under the side pan, which is where the valve body is located. It's NOT a good location to have to remove a side pan and re-install while it's in the vehicle. I wouldn't recommend it to anyone but a professional.
