Hello, check the switch thats connected to the gearlever mechanism, this is the switch that stops you from starting it in gear. It is usually encased in a plastic container. You will need to get a new one from your auto parts supplier. I hope that I have been of assistance .

03 chev cavalier yesterday the car wouldn't even turn over. Today nothing happened on the first crank then started on the 2nd crank no problem. later turned over not a problem at all. Any ideas??

Next time it doesn't start, move the shift lever to NEUTRAL. Then try to start. If it cranks in neutral, that would be a sign of a misadjusted cable or bad transmission park/neutral switch. Could also be a bad ign switch or other issues. If the shifter doesn't help checking for power at the starter when turning the key to start. If no power, work backwards to the IGN switch

Select start withignition switch and sometimes nothing happens. No other problems are seen. All other instrument indiations seem normal. Keep trying and, so far, it will start.

will or will not crank?
if no crank wiggle the gear selector cranking
or try cranking in neutral. (fresh contacts there)

nothing to me means it will not crank.
if A/T wiggle the shifter,
the park lock out will allow you to shift to neutral, hand brake set.
then crank.
if it wont crank now, try, jumper cable cranks next.

Automatic 1996 Pontiac Bonneville wont shift gears

Transmissions have so many parts so it's difficult to diagnose. I would have the transmission filter changed first. Usually that is the most common shifting problem. If that doesn't fix the problem it may be a little more costly.

Car wont start something to do wiv park on gear shift

your linkage may need adjusting. I had a problem like this when I put it in park, my reverse lights were on and it wouldnt re-start until i shoved the gear shift hard into park. Check this out first.

The van will not start but without the key on the auto relay is buzzing. the van did start once but cut off. it only started after jamming the shift lever up into the park position.

Sounds like the safety nuetral switch its located on the trans mission and will only allow the vehicle to be started in park or nuetral position but if its gone bad or out of adjustment your vehicle will never start. Look under the hood on the top of the transmission assuming its front wheel drive where the shift linkage attatches to the transmission there will be an electronic part there with a wire connector that should be the one. I f its rear wheel drive then its under the vehicle generally on the drivers side of the tronamission.

1996ford econ Shifting gear problem

Almost definately, follow the shift linkages down the column and under the bonnet get a buddy to move them while you are looking the worn parts will be very obvious. quite involved to repair if it all needs to be overhauled, may be best to be left to an experianced tech, unless you have relevent experience. it wont start somtimes because the inhibitor switch is on the linkage.

Shift lever not shifting out of park mode even though the engine is starting fine?

If your shift lever is on the stirring colum, there is a button in the colum itself directly underneath the lever that usually retracts whrn you press the breaks, but in this case it isn;t. Simply remove the right portion of the stirring colum and press the button and put in gear while holding it that is a quick solution on putting it in gear but it is not a permenent fix.
