    Co-worker had similar problem with vehicle not going into park. Column shift goes smoothly through N R D 3 2 1, but will not allow it to pass into park. It feels like its physically being blocked from going into P. I checked external linkage around the AOD 4x4 transmission, and everything appears to in place and secure. I was thinking that it could be related to transmission internals.

Have seen this many times on vehicles that have been on gravel roads.rocks get stuck behind the tranny range sensor and will not allow you to shift into park.to check find range sensor on drivers side of tranny it is black and is where the shift cable connects to tranny.clear out any debris.

pull the turret again and check the positioning of the selector rails . Check that you have the gear lever in the right way around . Check that the gear lever is not fouling on the edge of the hole in the floor and preventing the lever moving far enough to the 1-2 position. Position of rear engine mount on cross member.

Basically if you can get gears then there is nothing wrong in the box or the gear lever installation because if the selector shaft were not positioned correctly you would not the gears you have as the dedent ball between shifter rails will not allow any more than 1 gear at a time.

Reverse lights stay on in all gears


Back-Up Light remains always ON you should check the Park/Neutral Position Switch (A/T) .The park/neutral position switch detects the shift lever position and sends signals to the ECM.
The ECM receives signals (NSW, R, 2 and L) from the park/neutral position switch.

Impala doesn't go into park


I suspect that there is a simple fix.
Under the car.... at the point where the shift lever rod connects to the transmission shift lever(s)...... loosen the nut on the Park transmission shift lever... and place the lever all the way into the park position.... You can confirm by attempting to start the car....
Once you are sure that it is in "Park", you can tighten the shift lever nut....

My 2001 Dodge Caravan's transmission is stuck in reverse.


Things haven't changed much...look on top of the transmission in the engine compartment and look at the shifting linkage. Look for anything that could be interfering with the shifting. One linkage is the cable to the Shift Lever and Rod that goes down into the transmission. Remove the cable adjustment screw.
Move the shift lever rod towards the front of the Van into the Park Indent Position. Place the Driver's Position (Dash) Shift Lever into Park and then reconnect the Cable to the Shift Lever and tighten down the cable adjustment screw to 70 in-lbs.
Check operation's

Have 1999 Ford Expedition xlt. My gear indicator is messed up, When I am in drive, it shows 2, when i am in park it shows reverse.


This comes straight from the repair manual..
1. Remove the upper steering column cover.
2. Put the shifter in drive position.
3. Move the shift lever clockwise until it stops (all the way to first gear position, then move it back two detent positions to the Drive position.
4. Hang an a weight (something) with 8 pounds of weight on the lever to hold it in place.
5. Center the indicator neddle in the middle of drive position.
6. Rotate the thumbwheel on the bottom of the steering column to remove all slack from the indicator cable.
7 Install the upper steering column cover.

It won't switch gears out of park...automatic transmission


Have some one move the shift lever and you watch the linkage under the car to see if the lever is moving on the transmission. Sounds like the linkage is lose. Tighten the bolt on the linkage and you will off and running again.
