If its a geartronic box,they are known for allowing water into the ECU for the gearbox (which is why I bought a manual D5). If you can get the car out of the snow to a level area and allow it to dry (I would let the car tickover for a considerable time to generate heat) you may get the box to function.

My 2004 chevy cavalier won't start it is stuck in

Your shifter cable sounds like it separated from the transmission or shifter or just broke. you are probably stuck in a moving gear so the neutral safety switch is disabling the ignition.

I would not try to start it if it is in first gear!!! I would check the shifter level on the transmission. May be a linkage or shifter cable problem.

I am looking at buying a 1999 Ford contour. To

it sounds like the first gear is shot. starting of in drive two skipps first. this is for when stuck in mud or snow by starting in higher gear it gives less torque so the wheel won't slip as much. So yes it is expensive because the tansmission needs rebuilt continueing to start off in second will burn it out as well

97 Maxima stuck in snow, but no wheel movement?

mbogucanin82: There are potentially a number of things it could be.
1. If one of the drive axles popped out of the transaxle, you can put it in ay gear you want but the car will not show any signs of even an attempt to move.
2. I you broke an inner CV joint, it would demonstrate the same,
A broken outer joint would have the drive axle flailing away under the car.
3. If this has a manual transmission, the clutch could have come apart which would make it impossible to transfer power from the engine to the input shaft of the transmission.
4. If it is a automatic, have you checked the level of fluid in the transmission? It is possible you may have damaged a cooler line which would cause the fluid to be pumped out when you started the engine.
I would venture that you will find the solution in one of these that I listed and you won't have to wait for the snow to thaw.
Good Luck>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>
