SOURCE: The manual gear shift will not move to reverse it

Some times you could get them out of park by pounding on the top of the shifter while moving it out of park at the same time. You need a new shifter assembly. If it won't come out of park, they can drag it onto a flatbed.

SOURCE: 95 mazda protege stuck in drive, wont shift gears, shifter moves but can't go in reverse, need help please

Check the shift cable that goes between the shifter and the transmission. If it's damaged internally it will not move properly and the condition you stated will be a symptom. Easiest way to check it is to disconnect the transmission end of cable and see if it moves freely. If not, replace it.

SOURCE: My 2001 Mazda tribute column

The same thing happened to my 2001 Mazda Tribute. It was stuck in Neutral. The shifter cable fell off the little metal post under the steering column. To fix it I removed the plastic column covers. Put the round end of the cable back on the little silver colored post. Then secured it on the post with a ring type push nut from Ace Hardware. Total cost of repair was sixty cents. The cables are not always broken. They just fall of the little post.

When you experience this problem, check to see if your brake lights are coming on. It could be as simple as a brake light switch malfunction. If the brake lights are functioning as the problem is occurring then you could for example have a problem with the shift interlock solenoid.

I have a 2002 mazda tribute I could only drive in 2nd gear now the only gear the truck will move in is reverse. am I going to need a new transmission or could something else be wrong


Hi Marsha, I found a similar problem and a specific solution for someone with another Mazda 2002 Tribute, perhaps this solution will fix your problem as well. There's a plastic link that connects the shift lever cable to the lever that sticks out of the transmission and actually shifts the transmission. That link, $85.00, was broken. Take it to your mechanics place and have it replaced; it will certainly be less than replacing the transmission. If you're handy at all you can probably do it yourself.

20005 mazda tribute wont go into reverse but when shifting to reverse it will go in drive mode


It sounds as though the shift cable might be going bad. I has the same issues on my 2003 Mazda Tribute and eventually it will break. It is a fairly simple fix if you have any mechanical skills. I believe the cable was around $175.00 bucks. The cable isn't what really goes bad it is the pin that is attached to the cable where it bolts to the transmission but it is a one piece unit. There have been people that repair the pin part only and there are a few youtube videos showing how to do that. If you find where the cable attaches on the shift lever on the transmission you can shift the gears by hand if you have someone in the vehicle putting the brakes on. you should be able to go through all the gears and this will let you know for sure the cable pin is going bad.
