2000 Honda Civic was difficult to shift (P to R), greased the cable and worked the shifter which worked. Now the car doesn't recognize the correct gears and every gear is in the wrong place.

Neutral safety switch is no longer in sync with shifter. The switch is next to the base of the shifter on driver's side. Remove the console and remove the switch. Check for damage. If no damage, test switch by moving up and back with car running and foot on brake. Also check the shifter interface to the switch. Will it engage the switch and move it properly? If yes, put switch and shifter in park position and reattach switch. Test for proper operation before replacing console.

Why can't ignition key be removed?

Sounds like the solenoid mounted on the shifter. You have to replace the shifter to replace the solenoid. I would check the resistance of the solenoid. Usually 30 to 40 ohms. check the plug to it(Corrrosion) and the resistance of the wires from the brake switch to the solenoid(5 ohms or less). Those shifters are cheap. Could be the brake switch also. Next time it doesn't work, See if the brake lights come on.

Transmission Shifter

There may be some sort of electrical contact or switch that is linked to the starter so that you cannot start the car unless its in park. I would suggest that this switch has accidentally been disconnected or may not be in the right position to switch on.. If you have a look at the shifter mechanism, there should be a switch near / next to the shifter in the park position. Check the mounting and the wiring to it.

My 88 Nissan Pathfinder will start but the shifter is stuck in park

There should be a button next to the shifter to release it in an emergency.
The problem could be the brake light switch or the solenoid on the shifter.

Where is the manual overrride switch for the transmission located?

If you mean the switch to get the shifter out of park, it would be next to the shifter if it has one.
Otherwise you would have to take the console apart to get to the solenoid.

My 2003 aviator gear is locked in park and will not move

check to see if your brake lights work. No? check your brake light fuse. OK? change your brake light switch. Your brake light switch powers the brake / shifter interlock. There is usually a way to bypass the interlock- check your owners manual for bypass button location ( its usually next to the shifter)

Where is the neutral safety swith located on a 1996 grand am 6 cyl.

Check the next diagrams...


Fig. 1: Neutral/Park position switch-3T40 transaxle


Fig. 2: Neutral/Park position switch-4T60-E transaxle

  1. Place the shifter in the N detent.
  2. The switch is located on the shift shaft on the top of the automatic transaxle. Loosen the switch attaching bolts.
  3. Rotate the switch on the shifter assembly to align the service adjustment hole with the carrier tang hole.
  4. Insert a 3 /32 in. (2.34mm) maximum diameter gauge pin into the hole to a depth of 9 /64 in. (9mm)
  5. Tighten the mounting bolts and remove the pin.

Hope this helps (remember rated this).

1997 Ford Escort - car has power but will not start. It did the same 2 days ago, but after putting shifter in reverse and then back in park, the car started. Now it won't.

sounds like you may have a bad safety switch on your shifter, if you have intermittent problems with it starting and it changes with movement of the shifter, it's probably the safety switch. The next time it doesn't start, shift to neutral and try it, if it starts, its the switch. The switch is designed to keep the engine from starting if it's in gear, but it will let you start in neutral and park.
