94 camaro z28 automatic shifte was stiff jerked it to first gear like a idiot now stuck in first starts up in first still got underneath I can change gears w transmission lever but shift cable in park only...


If the car starts in first, it sounds like you have a problem with the lock cable. There should be a cable from steering column to shifter that prevents the shifter from moving out of park.

Remove the center console and examine the cables. Disconnect the one from the steering column and see if that frees up the shifter. If it does, you will need to find out what is jamming the steering column. Check the cable for frays 1st. Then make sure you didn't drop something down the center console, last look at the cable connection behind the ignition key.... when you are poking around the steering column, disconnect the battery and let is sit for a few minutes or you risk the air-bags blowing up in your face.

A long time ago, I melted a gear shift cable when I didn't have a good ground on the engine block. When the car started, the power when through the shifter cable and it must have gone red hot and melted.

Cannot remove key from ignition, car is in park, steering wheel NOT locked in place can drive car and park again but keys will not come out


Try this....I know it sounds silly, but I had an old galaxy that did this same thing....

After you put the car in park, (I am guessing it is on the steering column), do NOT let the shifter go into it's "parked" position, but rather, leaving it in park, pull the shift lever toward you, but do NOT move it out of park. Kind of like you have to do when you are going to pull the shifter out of park, and into another gear, ya know? While holding the shifter in that position, NOW try to remove the keys. Did this work?

It is a Safety Switch, that some vehicles have. However, if the shifter never had the problem before, and suddenly, it is doing this, you may have a small broken part inside the steering column, that will not allow the ignition and steering components to LOCK.

Good Luck

When car is in any gear. park, reverse nuetral and drive the gear shifter on dash shows the gear always in PARK


there is a small cable/string attached to the steering column part of the shifter. when you move the shifter it pulls the cable/string, which moves the lever in the cluster on the PRNDL display. basically look carefully at where the shifter base is and you should find the cable/string thing, and reattach it.

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.

Can't remove key from ignition,it's an 02 grand prix, everything works right just can't pull out the key


I'm guessing your gran prix is a floor shifter?
if so, sitting in drivers seat have car running,put your foot on the brake,and move the shifter to first gear,while you are doing this watch the steering cover behind the steering wheel rotate also.when you see the column cover moving bring the shifter back to the park position,while watching which way the column is rotating,when you get to park put your hand around the bottom of that rotating column cover and turn it up further and remove your key.the shifter cable needs to be adjusted some
