It happened twice to me so far (700 miles and 2700 miles). You can absolutely use roadside assistance. I did last time. I had the dealer come 2 hours away to get it. I **** to Ducati NA first. It cost over $1k to fix the first time because they said that there was some damage from the spring. I don't know what the bill came to the second time. You definately should notify ducati NA ( I assume that you are in the USA?) to notify them of the problem and your dissapointment to be sure that they oversee the repair and expedite parts and service at your dealer. From what I gathered, the shifter lever is over extending on downshifts. The mechanism needs adjustment (the stops as it was explained to me) so it doesn't continue to brake the return spring. The service manager at my dealer explained that Ducati has a new method of repairing the problem that is supposed to prohibit it from happening again. They are not too quick to call it a technical service bulletin (TSB), but that is what it looks like to me.

Hi, Anonymous for this situation I would call my local dealer or reputable shop's service/parts department and inquire about any possible quick fix, answers, or parts inquiry.

Nisson Altima will not shift out of park. Stuck in the parking lot... can anyone help ASAP???

Change your brake light fuse, if it's blown. If that doesn't fix the problem, change your gear selector shift lock solenoid. That's what has to move, for you to be able to shift from park.

I bought a 2002 grand am about a month ago and i am having problems. when my car has to shift gears it takes a long time to shift. i will be going down the highway and i am stuck on 50 and it won't shift....

Check the transmission fluid level, per your owners manual. (Some transmission fluid levels need to be checked cold, some hot with the engine running and some hot with the engine off) Most hot with engine running.
If your level is good, and the fluid looks reddish or maroon, bring it to a trusted local mechanic. He/she will be able to determine if you have a blown transmission or if bad solenoid(s) are to blame for your poor shifting. Transmission solenoids cannot be checked by the average person in their driveway.
Dark brown or black transmission fluid means the transmission was not serviced properly and the fluid "cooked" and a fatal internal failure has occured, or vice versa.

Shifter is locked up

try the brakelight switch or the neutral safety switch this will keep the car from shifting into gear because it does not register that the brake pedal is depressed.

I have a MB C230 Sport 2007. My check engine light came on and now the car is stuck in 2nd gear. Anyone please help.

Place your car in park, wait at least 5 minutes then place your foot on the break, put your car in D. Now, take your gear shift and push it to the left for D- direction, you should see the number 1 show on your display console, then push the gear shift to the right, D+ direction, you will see the numbers go from 2 to 6 and then D. Turn the vehicle off and wait about 10/15 minutes and the light will hopefully go out, you will leave Limp Home Mode, and your car will drive properly and you will feel the gears shifting gently without the feel of the transmission slipping or the up or down-shift sounding out of whack. Good Luck.

Gear shift difficulty moving/gear shift stuck in 1st gear

First of all, I need to know whether you will be working on a lift or on jack stands as this will determine if you will just drop the transmission or have to pull the entire engine and then pull the transmission.

Heres what you should do before getting started.

1. Get a Haynes manual from the local AutoZone or any autoparts store.
2. Get to know your local Dodge 5 star dealer phone number as it will be helpful on quick on the fly questions if you need to talk to a mechanic or need to order parts.

Once you answer my first question, then I will let you know where to start, the haynes manual will also be very helpful with pictures while you are working if you get stuck.
