Question about 1996 Buick Century

1 Answer

1996 Buick Century--the transmission is locking up if you are moving and hit the brakes, but if you put it in neutral and rock it back and forth it will start moving again, sometimes. It sounds like the transmission is shifting into gear, but the tires won't turn when it is locked up. Have changed the ABS computer, but it did not help.

The odds are that it will have to come out
& be rebuilt

Even when you do that, you usually don't
actually find much,but the issues go away.

I once owned a trans shop

How to move the shift lever into neutral on a 2006 Kia Sedona when the battery is dead in the button will not move


If the car is parked on a grade/hill, with the transmission in gear will prevent shifting (pressure from the wheels through your axle/driveshaft). Have one person rock the car back and forth with another person (with strong fingers!) sitting in the drivers seat with the foot over the brake (if you're on a hill). As the person rocks the car slightly back and forth, see if you can disengage the safety button and move to N or P. Obviously engage emergency brake after that!

HOW DO I LOCATE AND REPLACE A PNP NEUTRAL SAFETY SWITCH ON A 2001 BUICK CENTURY


On top of the transmission, has a triangle shape. Backup light switch is incorporated into it. Has to be adjusted to Neutral position with transmission in Neutral to get it right. Be careful to chock the tires so the car cannot roll and use the hand brake for added safety.

1996, stuck in park shifter moves fine, but car will not roll in neutral, but if i rock car back and forth it will pop out of park and then i can drive forward and backwards just fine. as soon as i put it...


The park pawl is spring loaded and it sounds like that spring has broken. The problem is, the trany has to be removed from the car and completely disassembled to fix it. The linkage for park is all mechanical, the transmission could be completely out of fluid and park should still work. I guess, I would get into the habbit of setting the park brake, then put the car in park and pull it out of park, before you release the park brake. You could also leave the shifter in the neutral position and set the park brake. This will allow you to start the car but you won't be able to remove the key. Hopefully the brake cables are not all rusted up. Good luck.

I have a 1991 Buick Park Ave, my car will start but when I put in drive, reverse or neutral I can feel the transmission shift but it will not take off. Several times I put the car in neutral, rocked it...


I would first check to see if you have the proper transmission level of fluid. From your discription, it seems that the fluid is low. If it is full, you have some more major issues. Hope this helps you, Rick
